Thank you, Prof. Rajendra Gupta.

I am reproducing comments of Prof. Gupta since they are extremely relevant to the subject of ancient Indian history. Although comments are specific in the context of multiple claims for the timing of Ramayana, they apply equally well to timing of Mahabharata and many other key instances of Indian history. He also demonstrates, by his…

Ramayana & Astronomic ambrosia

Shri Virendra ji wrote… “Good development finally, hoping to see some engagement/interaction soon.

I have provided my criticism of the work of…

Trivial Truisms & Authorities

She feels that she was misquoted. I will leave it to Prof. Rajendra ji Gupta to clarify. The…

What is urgently required is not acceptance of one specific claim (that is dangerous in any situation), but a recognition of multiple claims with their…

Rama-Janma & Goebbels Law

Readers sent me links such as these. http://satyavijayi.com/the-date-of-mahabharatha-war/ or http://maharashtratimes.indiatimes.com/nation/rama-birth-date/articleshow/49052930.cms — Readers also wonder if these researchers (Shrimati Sarjo Bala and others who claim 10 January 5114 BCE as day of Rama-Janma) are aware of my work and…
