The Aryas: Facts without Fancy and Fiction
The Aryas: Facts without Fancy and Fiction
Description

From the Jacket:

This short monograph is just not yet another book on the controversial clan of the Aryans. It has the distinction of being an unbiased, factual statement, which has been lacking, despite the fact that it has been one of the favourite topics of the Vedic scholars and the Indo-Europeanists.

It is written with a clearcut objective of knowing the facts about the Aryas, her comments try to guide the reader as how to understand them. This book thus has a limited aim. Bare facts are documented and not stretched to suit the exigencies of a theory. The author has no theory to propound. But at the same time no external framework is accepted.

The romantic dreams woven by the earlier generations of scholars are not found in the Rgveda, the main source of information. And therefore it is possible to see to what extent it was just the play of fancy.

With these facts, the author reconstructs the historical events, with supporting archaeological evidence.

About the Author:

The author, a well-known student of Indian culture, does not need any introduction. She has already published three books introducing a new point of view. They are widely read. Her ideas spring from her sources and they are refreshingly original. She has changed through this and other volumes our understanding of the early history of India and Indian culture.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
