About this Item: Aditya Prakashan, New Delhi, 1982. N.A. Condition: New. x,204p., 23cm., Moves towards a general revision of ancient Indian History. Taking the aid of archaeological discovery, documentary material and linguistic study, it seeks to bring about a radical change in (1) comparative chronology, (2) the sequence of cultures and (3) the cultural character of several phases of Indias career in antiquity. By a close investigation of the term karpasa for cotton in Sanskrit literature and by an alignment of its first occurrence with the first ascertained cultivator of the cotton-plant in our country, the body of Indian writing called Sutras is shown to be in its early stage contemporary with the Harappa Culture, the Indus Valley Civilization, of c. 2500-1500 B.C. The natural consequences are a new date for the Rigveda which is commonly held to have started in c. 1500 B.C. a thousand years before the Sutras, and a new understanding of the Indus Valley Civilization as at once a derivative, a development and a deviation from the Rigveda a millennium after this scriptures beginning. However, the argument from karpasa does not stand alone. Its import is buttressed from several other directions. Pointers from India are rendered sharper by significant suggestions caught from the Mesopotamian region with which the Indus Valley Civilization had commercial and cultural contacts. In agreement with several scholars but with an eye to more particulars, a name for this Civilization is discerned in the Sumerian records. It is then matched - again with a closer scrutiny than given before by like-minded scholars - with a name applied from more inland India to people of the Indus Valley for the first time in the Satapatha Brahmana which just precedes the earliest Sutras and would thus synchronize by the new chronology most appropriately with the initial development of the Harappa Culture. The riddle of the Indus script is also confronted and a fairly long debate held on the claims of Proto-Tamil and Proto-Prakrit for the language embodied in it. The latter is adjudged more likely to be the base though other elements as part of the superstructure are not brushed aside. At the end, as a key-insight, the vocable karpasa itself is disclosed as functioning under a transparent veil in several lists of Sumero-Akkadian words which are connected with the trade between the Harappa Culture and Sumer. The above summary hints at only a few aspects of the manifold research pursued along new lines with a sustained thoroughness. Here is a book opening up vista on novel vista for the Indologist without sacrificing any of the scientific rigour with which honest investigation of the past is to be carried on.

About this Item: Agam Kala Prakashan, 1985. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. The Search For Lanka by Pt. D.P. Mishra is a brief but very exhaustive and critical survey of all that has been written on Lanka during the last 150 years. By making a literary, ethnographic and geographic study Pt. Mishra has come to conclusion that Lanka must lie somewhere in the Godavari Delth. Here there are several islands even now known as ?Lanka? One of these should be Lanka of Ravana, or it might have been submerged in the sea. The work has been warmly applauded by eminent archaeologist Dr. H.D. Sankalia who has written Foreword to it Printed Pages: 78. Seller Inventory # 65352

About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt Ltd, New Delhi, 1987. Hardcover. Condition: New. First. 216pp. Book Summary of Prehistoric And Historic Archaeology Of Gujarat - In the present work Prehistoric and Historic Archaeology of Gujarat, Dr. Sankalia has presented a critical review of the new discoveries in the prehistoric, proto-historic and historic archaeology of Gujarat since 1947 to the present day. The work is mainly based on his own explorations, for example at Madasa on the Banas. It is an exhaustive study of the Early Stone Age tools, rock-paintings, Buddhist stupas and images as well as temples, their architecture and iconography, and images of Gujarat from c. AD 200 to AD 1300. A special feature of the book is the critical study of the place and personal names from inscriptions of Gujarat. The study shows how Gujarat Mandala was formed in the ninth century, and thus regarded as a separate cultural province. It has taken nearly one thousand years for India to be reorganized into linguistic provinces. The book is sufficiently provided with line diagrams and half-tone illustrations.

About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt Ltd, New Delhi, 1983. Hardcover. Condition: New. First. 220pp. The excavations the author has made in the site of Durkadi Nala on the ancient banks of the Narbada River, are the main contents of this book. It includes a very detailed analysis of the pre-Acheulian tools found there; which, according to a comparative study, can be as old as 1 million years. The author begins with a careful revision of the Soanian industry in India and a criticism of the classical theory of the two different traditions (choppers vs. handaxes). This review shows clearly how shaky are the foundations of the classical theory in India. The author strongly advocates abandoning the traditional trend in India of exploring the present banks of the rivers, where palaeolithical vestiges are plentiful but always mixed-up and of little scientific value, and substituting it by the search of the less rich but better preserved primary sites, placed along small tributaries. For the classification of palaeolithic tools, the author proposes a new method based on a computerized code of attributes which, in many cases, represents an improvement upon the traditional typological approach of classifying archaeological artefacts. The main conclusion of this book is related to a subject deeply connected with the problem of the emergence and early development of Man. The evidences discovered by the author in Durkadi Nala strongly supports the hypothesis that the Acheulian Culture of India, is not the result of a foreign invasion, as most archaeologists and historians have accepted, but an independent Indian achievement.
