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 have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
