  1. Namaste Sir,
    Haven’t spoken to you in a long time.
    Always a great learning experience from your articles.

    My question are that:

    Firstly here you have given that Buddha nirvana at 1865 BC can you please explain how you came to this conclusion and what about other Tibetan claims that take the date back to 2422 BC?

    Second question is that there was to be some sort of collaboration work with you and Mr Vedveer Arya any progress on that?

    Third can you please give us a list of the topics of your future books? Eagerly waiting for them.
