I hope these calculations are just for amusement. Please refer to "Early Sanskritization. Origins and development of the Kuru State" on

No - these calculations are not for amusement ...these were actually from a famous maharashtrian professor ...and let me be frank on this ...most facts presented by westerners on indian civilization are misrepresented on a infinitive scale, who ever it may be...hope mw is also one of them...he might not be too...but i don't know.

great pity is that we stupid asses started to believe in others revelations rather than trusting our own people...

I see that you are quoting from Dr. Vartak's article.

I suggest you familiarize yourself with a more mainstream history. Any history textbook taught in Indian Universities should do. The dates in Witzel's paper are the standard ones accepted by the Indian History Congress. Please have a look at this speech by Amartya Sen:

The question is not about beliefs or trust. The paper by Witzel is based on evidence gathered by other historians - many of them are Indians (a look at the references should be enough), though it shouldn't matter.

well...if it's not for beliefs and trusts , no civilization could have survived thousands of years. for that matter trusts and beliefs come from "Actual Facts". If it was not a established fact, it would not have survived so many years.

westerners are trying to satisfy and prove their egotism to other cultures, since they themselves donot have a culture as long as we do.

In that process it is a pity to say that some of the influences from them have been running into our historians to either have a personal or professional achievements to be marked as their own under the influence of westerners.

I am not disrespecting any one, but one should understand that contradictions to others views are part of life but they should be in their limits to respect others.

Trying to prove ones views wrong deliberately is a cowards act and that's what exactly happens with these westerners views..
