    India has had a weird relationship with its history prior to Mauryan empire. History by its nature is imprecise but, in this case, confusion is compounded by the fact that Harappan script remains undeciphered and there are very few archaeological remains of Vedic society. The confusion...

    A narrative of how we Indians came about, buttressed with evidence from fields of Archaeology, Population genetics, and Comparative linguistics. Must read for every Indian as the definition of an Indian(or a Hindu) is becoming more rigid because of the propagandas flying around. ...
