26000 YO Vishnu Idol

An ancient mystery

It is generally thought that the first gold manufacturing took place around 7000 BC in the vicinity of the Black sea. While we are discovering that Hindu culture indeed extends back to this time the claim regarding this discovery turns history even more on its head.

The following article is from ajitvadakayil.blogspot and it also appears on many other websites. It is generally thought that gold was worked before copper and bronze but you can do further research and decide for yourself.

The narrative – italics mine:

A heavy chest containing a 47 gram metal alloy idol was given to CIA officials for safekeeping at Lo Monthang (called “Mustang, northern Nepal” in

Revising the Official Hindu History

An urgent need for the well-being of ALL nations

Most people consider that it’s important to know one’s past and to know one’s ancestry because that knowledge provides insights into one’s nature from which we can more clearly determine our reason for being and place in the universe.

Without knowing one’s history, any individual is left in a kind of vacuum, a state of limbo of not knowing. In our recent past the archaeological and historical explorers conjectured that modern humans developed independently in different regions. The Africans in Africa, the Asians in Asia and the Europeans in Europe as independent human species that next giving rise to the variety of peoples in the world today.

This theory was then

A Cronology of Hindu History

Re-Writing the narrative from emerging discoveries

Like many people seeking to know the truth of our existence I have questioned the historic narrative handed down to us through various governmental agencies tainted by religious and other belief systems. It comes down to a question of believing what might be true without evidence and seeking to find out what is true based on tangible evidence.

The Western, patriarchal capitalist point of view dominates the world and anyone would have to be pretty stupid to not see that the associated political structures are rotten to the core. They say nice things but do dastardly deeds in the name of power and profits. Conversely in the east and by East I mean east

Lord Ram in Mesopotamia

Proving the antiquity of Hindu Civilisation

The Ramayana is one of India’s epic books and lord Rama, a man known for his honour, faith and tenacity has been suggestively and now proven falsely dated by scholars’ to anywhere between the 7th to 4th centuries BCE. Some even attempt a date even as late as the 3rd century CE based loosely on interpretations of texts and archaeology, but there is steadily growing evidence calling these suppositions into question.

Modern researchers are learning a controversial and more accurate history, that Hindu history is far older with the Mahabharata now dated to around 6000 BC which provides context for regional travel, trade and further dating of the Hindu narrative as

India Begat Egypt

Tracing our ancient origins

In the first of the BBC programs on the history of Egypt narrated by Bettany Hughes, the film opens with her describing a large block of what looked like just a big block of sandstone. Bethany describes as rock as an original depiction of a bull created around 5000 BC. This is at the time when the Sahara was beginning to dry out a second time, previously it had dried around 8000 BC so that time (by thousand BC) the Kiffian people may have migrated to the Nile Valley and mixed (or been absorbed into) with the more dominant African culture prevalent through Sudan and Ethiopia.

For me

Hinduism and Economic Development in India

A conflict of knowledge and wilfulness

A discussion on a paper by by A.K. Saran:

If we look at the evolution of economic development in India over the past millennia, some may say it is playing catch up to the west and as of 2019, it is not only catching up but taking over. This is providing positive outcomes for some and further impoverishing others because that’s the nature of capitalism.

When we look at the Hindu political and economic sphere today, it seems to be operating an accord to an extract from the article ‘Hinduism and économic Development in India‘ by A.K. Saran who says: “The sociological problem of India’s economic development is

Meet the Romans

Playboys get themselves an empire

With her ability to read between the lines and sense of realism, Mary Beard makes history interesting. She describes the legend of Romulus and Remus and its relevance to the development Rome, a city and state founded on bloodshed. Perhaps in no other time has human brutality ever been eclipsed yet the model of governance espoused by Augustus rules the world today.

Mary describes Rome as a city that takes what it wants and gives very little in return although in the modern era we tend to think that we got our language from Latin, good roads and an education system. But the Romans had no altruistic ideas, medicine was developed to serve the army

Hindu Economics

And the art of civilisation

Hindu civilisation in India preceded the ancient civilisations of Egypt, Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome However the further one travels from India, the weaker its influence and modern humanity more corrupted.

The purpose of this paper is to describe the evolution of money, capitalism and its influence on not only Hindu culture, but on global civilisation.

Introduction

The word Hinduism is a misnomer coined by invaders as a derivation on Hindustan reflecting a failure to grasp the significance of the Hindu way of life although it may be more accurate to say that Hinduism is a term given as part of the effort to break the spirit of India by the most recent invaders, the

Sahara

A Key to our History

The desertification of the Sahara is generally understood is happening within the last 6000 to 8000 years but like all great stories there is much more to it than that. The story really begins with the closing of the Tethes Sea as the tectonic plate carrying Africa moved north. This has happened over the past 41 million years as similarly the plate carrying India moved with it creating the Himalayas.

The Northwood movement of the African tectonic plate Created the Mediterranean Sea and turned the Sahara region into a shallow sea with some desertification and a series of great lakes before the complete desertification that we see today.

It seems plausible that climatic change is

Ancient India

A legacy the world is awakening to

There is an old saying that the truth will set you free yet in today’s modern corporate controlled world, truth has become a commodity determined by someone else for political and economic gain.

While some people invest a great deal of effort into determining the truth of what someone in the modern world may have or may not have said or done, the truth of our past is more important because it shapes who we are today.

It is abundantly clear that we reap as we sow or to express it more crudely, he who lives by the sword generally dies by the sword. The ancient wisdom originating in India advises that to
