Studies in the Historical Geography of Ancient India
Studies in the Historical Geography of Ancient India
Description
About the Book:

This volume containing twenty research papers embodies the results of deep and intensive research marked by great critical acumen in the fields of historical geography, history and ethnography of ancient India, based on a wide and penetrating study of ancient Indian literature - Vedic, Classical and Prakrit, as well as the most recent investigations in the field of epigraphy and archaeology.

The learned author has brought to light new facts and revolutionizing interpretations of existing source material giving the lie to the superficial derivations based on mere sound similarities as is convincingly exemplified by his epoch making identifications like that of Ludhiana with the Ailadhana of Valmiki's Ramayana; of the Shiwalik hill swith the Salvakagiri of Paninis Ganapatha, of Nahan with Naubandhana of the Great Epic and the Puranas, of the Bhadanakas with the Yaudheyas of Bahudhanyaka; and of the Mahavrisas with the people of the protohistoric Indus culture.

The author has remarkably succeeded in clearing the mist, which enveloped many a geographical name in the ancient land of Brahmavarta and the Brahmarshidesa. The study of this delightful volume will be at once rewarding, illuminating and enriching.

About the Author:

O. P BHARADWAJ, I.A.S., presently Director of Higher Education, Archaeology and Archives, Haryana Government and Veda Vyasa Professor of indology, Kurukshetra University has had a very brilliant academic career, having set a record in B.A. Sanskrit (Honors) examination and again having stood first with a first class in the M.A. (Sanskrit with Epigraphy) Examination. He again repeated the performance a third time by standing first in order of merit in the competitive examination for recruitment to the Punjab Civil Service (Executive).

Mr. Bharadwaj truly represents the tradition of stalwarts of the old I.C.S. who combined their administration talent with a deep interest in the literary and archaeological heritage of our ancient land. During a long career of 34 years - first four years as a college lecturer and thereafter in various judicial and administrative assignments - he kept up his abiding interest in Indological studies.

Not only has he been actively associated with the top-ranking academic bodies with the All India Oriental Conference, and the Indian History Congress, but also enriching our knowledge about ancient India by means of his brilliant research papers published in prestigious research journals.

Next to his official pre-occupations Indology remained his first love and his devotion to it is typified by his switching over from the high pedestal of administrative eminence to the relatively quiet atmosphere of a University Chair at Kurushetra.

Testimonials

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.
Gregory, USA
Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
