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.

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
