The Kuttani-mata of Damodaragupta is one of the few works in the history of classical Sanskrit literature the time and locale of the composition whereof can be ascertained with a fair degree of certainty.

A critical study of the internal evidence indicates that the work was...

Recent years have witnessed a flurry of archaeological activity in India, Pakistan and other parts of South Asia, producing an enormous wealth of data and consequently making most of the general books on South Asian archaeology out of date.

Khwaja Ghulamus Saiyyadain was a traditional man but in a more rewarding sense of the term. He inherited all the good values of the social, cultural and religious ethos that the Indo-Islamic civilization offered to a sensitive and intelligent human...

For well over seven decades two theories have been blinding our vision of India's past, viz. that: There was an 'Aryan Invasion' of India The invaders destroyed the Harappan civilization which became extinct. Although in his book, The Sarasvati Flows On, the present author completely demolished these theories, there are still a few scholars who cling to them. Resurrecting the 'Aryan Invasion/Migration' theory, a stalwart writes: 'one thing seems certain; the speakers of Vedic Sanskrit......

Orissa has been the Cinderella of Indian archaeological exploration. For historical reasons the decision makers deterred the spade of the archaeologists. Nonetheless, the occasional foray into the field threw a flood of light on the hitherto hidden historical, religious and artistic traditions of the state. The excavation conducted by the Archaeological Survey of India from 1997 to 2000 at Udayagiri was epoch-making. It unearthed a grand monastery with magnificent shrines and unique... 
 The Rigvedic People  Braj Basi Lal The Rigvedic People   $87.99  $65.99  Buy Now 
For several decades it has been orchestrated that there was an Aryan Invasion of India which destroyed the Harappan Civilization. However, as shown in this book (pp. 10 ff.), there is no evidence whatsoever of any invasion or of the presence of an alien culture at any of the hundreds of Harappan sites. While one is glad to note that the Invasion theory is dead, it is a pity that it is being resurrected in a new avatar, namely that of Immigration, of people from the Bactria-Margiana...

Indological studies, during the colonial era, largely emphasized the differences between the various regions, linguistic groups, religious persuasions, etc. Even after the Independence, the trend seems to continue and the 'divisive studies'-at the author terms them-far outnumber the 'integrative studies' (again, a term coined by the author). The present work is an attempt towards such 'integrative studies'. Kamarupa, Kalinga and Mithila are three civilisational regions that developed close...

The Traditional Knowledge Systems (TKS) are the corpus of accumulated folk knowledge gained through trial and error through millennia. This folk knowledge therefore has a parental relationship to the elite science. The micro-variations of the ambient harsh environment of the hills have been responsible for the extremely rich community knowledge systems and a biodiversity necessary for sustainability of human life here. The mountain people also cultivate many lesser known crops and medicinal...

This volume examines the legacy of Alexander, the Macedonian, as it survived and transformed itself in literature, the arts and archaeology in Asia. The tendency to idealise Alexander began in antiquity and by the Roman period, a body of romance had grown around him, which continued to expand in almost every language from Scotland to Mongolia. The portrait of Alexander as the universal conqueror who was also the civiliser and benefactor of mankind owes its origin to Plutarch who wrote in the...
