I have written quite a few articles on the History of India stressing the fact that the real history of India is not made public.

Even when one reads the doctored History of India,One finds that the facts recorded relating to the West presented are accepted and the corresponding facts,as vouched in the same western source,relating to India are dismissed as Legends,myths!

One such fact is the dismissal of Indian Kings who were contemporaries of Western Kings.

So much is the misinformation,One reader,after reading the Kings List of Tamil Nadu from 484 BC,wrote to me asking me to indicate the name of the Tamil King who ruled at the time of Alexander’s invasion of India.

I am providing the Indian Kings List who were ruling India at the time of Alexander’s presence in India.

The first point is that Alexander did nor conquer India,contrary to what we have been taught.

“Strabo, the Greek historian wrote: “Generally speaking, the men who have written on the affairs of India were a set of liars…Of this we became the more convinced whilst writing the history of Alexander.”

“Following Alexander’s failure to gain a position in India and the defeat of his successor Seleucus Nikator, relationships between the Indians and the Greeks and the Romans later, was mainly through trade and diplomacy. Also the Greeks and other ancient peoples did not see themselves as in any way superior, only different.”

This statement by Russia’s Marshal Gregory Zhukov on the Macedonian invasion of India in 326 BCE is significant because unlike the prejudiced colonial and Western historians, the Greeks and later Romans viewed Indians differently. For instance, Arrian writes in Alexander Anabasis that the Indians were the noblest among all Asians.’

“Strabo, the Greek historian wrote: “Generally speaking, the men who have written on the affairs of India were a set of liars…Of this we became the more convinced whilst writing the history of Alexander.”



Indian influence in Greece and middle east was present very much earlier to Alexander.

The Shiva family returned to India through Russia, Kazakhstan, and Persia.

Alexander in India.

‘Alexander III of Macedon (20/21 July 356 BC – 10/11 June 323 BC),
In the winter of 327/326 BC, Alexander personally led a campaign against these clans; the Aspasioi of Kunar valleys, the Guraeans of the Guraeus valley, and the Assakenoi of the Swat and Buner valleys. A fierce contest ensued with the Aspasioi in which Alexander was wounded in the shoulder by a dart, but eventually the Aspasioi lost. Alexander then faced the Assakenoi, who fought in the strongholds of Massaga, Ora and Aornos.‘ Source for quote https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_the_Great
