I think much of it is a medieval cook up, some as late as 16th century. Remember, these church writers had a very keen historical sense and were intently trying to make their claims look historical. Such as by actually using Koine Greek alphabets and numbers.

Indians have historically lacked a curiosity about the outside world.Thus ancient Greco-Romans lied that Alexander defeated Indians. And now Indologists lie that Aryan invaders brought Sanskrit. Western history will be DISMANTLED the day WE start exposing their pathetic sources.

When will professional Indian historians publish critical books on ancient Greek science? When will Indians challenge western academia- 'Look, you studied our texts & interpreted them as you please. But When we studied yours, we find your sources are nearly useless for history'

The presence of Brahmi in 6th century BC proves nothing. Even Sri Lanka has it. It can simply be southward migration of Northerners which is already evidenced in Vedic texts. It is a huge leap to claim this proves 'IVC=Dravidian' without even establishing the script link.

Precicely. And chariots from 2200 BCE UP and the fact that it was sanskrit speaking people who took chariots to middle east.

Thank you I usually take an hour to finish reading the editorial. But yesterday, I finished much sooner thanks to your article taking up a fourth of the page. Please write everyday.

India historically had more to give and less to take from the world. This may have contributed to apathy towards studying foreign cultures. Today we have lost our wealth and self sufficiency but still maintain the apathy.

Agree 100%. Why do we have Indologists in Western universities, but no one credible to be critical about European history in Indian universities?

It is definitely possible--if there is proof. Any evidence of metal smelting in 20,000 BCE?

The Greek Arrian (92-175 CE) who never even visited India wrote this tripe about Indian women. Forget insults, was there any Indian who visited Greece, returned & wrote anything abt it? Difference is curiosity. Nobody in India wanted to know & so, nobody wrote. Still the same.

Rig Veda knows all metals except Iron and silver. But they definitely had silver.

Strawman. Not accepting crazy dates is all. Read about the paleolithic age of human history.

Humans, Indians included, were struggling with stone tools in 20,000 BCE. Anyone who knows basic archaeology would tell you.

It is funny, but Persia had no massive slavery at all, compared to the Greek cities, which were massively dependent on slave labour. In fact, one of the Greek commentators was wailing that the Persians had made Greek cities free, by freeing all slaves. Pre-Islamic Persia was a+

and in each instance the yanavas had to stretch every sinew to survive and their retreat tails between legs down the indus was marked by slaughter of civilians in resisting fortified towns. then most of them perished in the ghedrosian desert (makran) before 1/n
