Between 724 and 810 CE, a series of battles took place between the Arabs and the north Indian King Nagabhata I of the Gurjara-Pratihara dynasty, the south Indian King Vikramaditya II of the Chalukya dynasty, and other small Indian kingdoms
For the atmosphere in India has been so vitiated on the basis of langauge and territories that even a slight mention, raises one’s hackles.
The Divide and Rule Policy started by the British about 300 years ago still lingers , currently being fueled by the politicians who have no idea of our Past History and our traditions.
Having written about the early histories of Tamil in detail and a couple of Posts on the antiquity of Kannada,I would like to tread carefully, though evidence is available on these subjects.
When I take up the ancient history of the other areas, bengal, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Central India, there might me surprises in store.
Hercules who penetrated so far, the Indians tell us, was a native of their country. He is particularly worshipped by the Suraseni (Shurasena), who have two great cities, Methora (Mathura) and Cleisoborus (Surapura), and the navigable river Jobares (Yamuna), passes through their territories. This Hercules, as Megasthenes asserts, and the Indians themselves assure us, uses the same habit with the Theban Hercules. Many male children, but only one daughter was born to him in India, for he married many women. The daughter’s name was Pandaea, and the land where she was born, and over which Heracles placed her as ruler, was named Pandaea after her.”
One may note that Balarama was of white complexion unlike Krishna who was black.
There are quite a number of theories that undermine the History of India by interpolating in the Indian texts,Misinterpreting them deliberately, as Max Mueller had done,honest misinterpretations and deliberate falsehood .
1.Sanatana Dharma dates to 5000 BC.
2.Vedas are non sensical sound bytes.
3.The Puranas and the Ithihasas are pure fantasy.
4.Aryans entered from Khyber Pass, invaded India and enriched it.
5.Dravida Desa, the South of India were peopled by barbarians.
6.The south indians called Dravidians were constantly engaged at war with the Aryans of the North.
7.The Arynas were a superior race.
8.The Sanatana Dharma was resisted and in fact the southerners fought against them, especially the Tamils.
9.Hindus were primitive and did not have any basic idea of Science.
10.Denying the existence of great Indian Kings and where it is not possible, assigning them later dates in History.
All these are falsehoods to undermine Hinduism and I have posted articles on each of them.
What does one base it on?
Common sense would tell you to refer to the legends,literature of the Nation, check with contemporary event,s then cross check it with references , if any, if these literature is contemporary or slightly later.
Can you imagine a Nation,s History being started solely on the basis of a Character, who has not even met the man he is quoted to have met!
Well, this is what has happened to Indian History.
