About the Book

We see more and more today that Indian History has to be rewritten according to the latest linguistic and archaeological discoveries, if Indian children are to understand who they are and where they come from. We know now that not only the history of India's beginnings were written by European colonizers, with an intention to downsize, downgrade and postdate Indian civilization, but that, unfortunately, generation after generation of Indian historians, for their own selfish purpose, endorsed and perpetuated these wrong theories, such as the Aryan invasion, which divided India like nothing else, pitting South against North, Aryan against Dravidian, and Untouchables against Brahmins. Hence, we hope that this book will lay the foundations for the next generation of Indian historians.

Prologue

We see more and more today that .Indian History has to be rewritten according to the latest linguistic and archaeological discoveries, if Indian children are to understand who they are and where they come from. We know now that not only the history of India's beginnings were written by European colonizers, with an intention to downsize, downgrade and postdate Indian civilization, but that, unfortunately, generation after generation of Marxist Indian historians, for their own selfish purposes, endorsed and perpetuated these wrong theories, such as the Aryan invasion, which divided India like nothing else, pitting South against North, Aryan against Dravidian, and Untouchables against Brahmins.

Not only that, but British and Marxist historians, eager to give prominence to the Congress party, which was in the first place a British institution, robbed of their true places in history giants, such as Sri Aurobindo, who, apart from being the avatar of the 'supramental' age, was the early prophet of Indian independence, when all Congress wanted was a few crumbs from the British. As a result, very few Indian children know about Sri Aurobindo today.

If you go and visit the new Museum of Indian History, situated in the Lok Sabha annexe in Delhi, which was conceived by Somnath Chatterjee, Speaker of the Parliament till 2008, you will be extremely surprised to see that for the communists, Indian history starts with Ashoka, a politically correct king, because he was supposed to be Buddhist. It then passes on to Akbar, another acceptable figure to Marxists and Muslims, as he was an `enlightened' emperor (but pretty ruthless in his early reign), then practically jumps to Subash Chandra Bose, Mahatma Gandhi and Nehru, who are given prime importance in this museum. Not a word about Sri Aurobindo, Tilak or Bipin Chandra Pal, the real revolutionaries of the Indian Independence Movement.

The sad thing is that this beautiful museum, with state-of-the-art facilities, such as the re-enacting of Nehru's 'Tryst of Destiny' speech, with animated wax figures, is seen by so many Indian school children and college students. Hence, the need for this book, which we hope will set the record straight.
