Pakistan is renowned for sponsoring terrorist groups

Archaeologists exploring a cave system in the Lonetal area near Ulm, Germany had found many representations of birds, horses, turtles and single lions, but the lion man idol made from the tusk of a mammoth in the form of a human body with a lion head created a stir across the world.

Ramnagar Ram Leela,Painting By Sunil Kr Vishwakarma Jee

Hindus meaning the people of the Indian Subcontinent have been severely challenged over the past 1400 years. The region has been invaded and a great deal of their culture distorted or destroyed.

It is from this broad region that language, ideology, numbers and our sciences originated. All these things have been taken around the world and used for divergent purposes yet the Hindu origins have been sidelined, derided and even despised.

1400 years of destruction have left India battered and bruised,

Why was India conquered?

India’s loss to foreign invaders

Awake IndiaJai Shiva Consecration of AdiYogi in Coimbatore Youtube

Over 1400 years, India has been raped and exploited by foreigners with different ideologies. It’s somehow ironic that the underlying ideologies of the Arabs, the Greeks, British, French and others are all based of seeds of knowledge from India that have been genetically manipulated.

An ancient civilization where Dharma prevailed, India consisted of many polarized societies led by
