The Indic civilization is by far the longest surviving civilization on this planet. There have been earlier ones, such as the Pharaonic in Egypt, but they have disappeared leaving behind only magnificent monuments but no human contacts. In India, however, for at least five millennia, from the earliest Vedas, there has been an unbroken tradition of spiritual, religious and literary output which is astonishing in its vibrancy and sheer profusion. The Mahabharata itself is longer than both the Iliad and the Odyssey combined, and that represents but a small fraction of our scriptural heritage.
