Readers and critics often talk about historical thrillers Sometimes they invent sub genres like archaeological thrillers or mythological thrillers while trying to pigeonhole some unputdownable action driven story dotted with physical or metaphorical blasts from the pastHere comes something which to uote the great Amitabh Bachchan stands taller than all such fictional works akin to रिश्ते में तो हम तुम्हारे बाप लगते हैंThis is history as a crime thriller Let me describe the situation in such termsThe EstateThere used to be a massive river fed by perennial sources bringing life and sustaining civilisation over a very large area One day geographical whims and other factors started killing it Slowly it withered and eventually died forcing its children to move away but not without its loving memory They mixed with others resettled and gave their memories a written shape while developing new features in their culture due to changing geography Eventually known history came to consider them as the starting point of historyThe InheritanceArchaeological seismic and hydrological studies submitted irrefutable proofs to show that the successors now inhabiting over a vast region had originated from the area and the people nourished by that once mighty river and NOT from some imaginary people who were otherwise being euated with rulers and heroesThe CrimeSome people panicked They were apparently well respected but had come to define their positions through rhetoric and ideology than evidence An intricate web of lies and deceit had been spun in the meanwhile to ensure divide and rule by declaring North Indians as invading Aryans and South Indians and tribal people as the 'original residents' Now that web started getting unraveled due to hard facts brought out by satellite imagery and excavations So those esteemed Marxist historians notably Romila Thapar Irfan Habib and RS Sharma swung into action They received support from other people with vested interests As a result versions of history which have got discredited than sixty years ago continued being taught in schools forcing billion plus people to forget their past and their own heritageThe FightbackFor that you have to read this book This incredibly meticulous and well argued book clearly establishes1 There was a Saraswati river fed by numerous streams and also feeding lakes other rivers and above all the people who had once set up one of the greatest civilisations in the history of mankind2 Those who had composed the Rig Veda and post Vedic literature were intricately aware of its existence and the role that it had played once3 The civilisation still being described as the 'Indus Valley Civilisation' is actually an Indus Saraswati civilisation at least if not the Saraswati Civilisation4 As a result of the gradual decay and death of Saraswati that Civilisation withered forcing the people to migrate eastward while retaining many many customs which are being practiced even today5 The so called Aryans were actually descendants of those who had lived during the Indus Saraswati Civilization6 THERE WAS NO ARYAN INVASIONIf you are an Indian please read this bookIf you have even the slightest interest in history please read this bookIf you are opposed to the teaching of lies and falsehoods just to suit the interest of rulers practicing 'divide and rule' please read this bookIt's actually a classic

The Sindhumata Searching for the trail of Holy River Sarasvati The story of the lost river Sarasvati is still being debated by scholars The current discussion includes evidences from several disciplines; archeology hydrology satellite imagery geology history and the Vedic literature Most notably the Rigveda Brahmanas and itihasas particularly Mahabharata also offer additional evidence A brief summary of the book is as follows Geological survey in the early 19th century in states of Haryana Punjab Rajasthan and Cholistan where river Sarasvati is known have flown during Vedic times revealed numerous ruined settlements that belonged to either the Harappan civilization or a period prior to or after Harappan era The author reviews tremendous amount of literature and discusses all aspects of Sarasvati; where it flew and how it may have vanished The overwhelming evidence suggests that ecological and environmental factors led to years of drought that drove the river to complete dryness The Vedic literature and archeology have been combined to construct the best picture for lost river Sarasvati and other tributaries that watered and gave life to Indus civilization It is on the banks of this river where great Vedic sages may have found solace serenity and creativity that may have transpired into the hymns of Rigveda Rigveda showers praise in 45 hymns on Sarasvati her name appears 72 times and three hymns are wholly dedicated to her She is often invoked in the company of two sister goddesses Ila and Bharati The waters of river Sarasvati is said to be “great amongst great” “the impetuous river” “created vast” “limitless” “unbroken” “swift moving” and “she surpasses in majesty and might of all other rivers” And Sarasvati is indeed is the “mother of rivers Sindumata” One of the Vedic clans the Purus is said to have dwelled on her grassy banks during the Vedic times In RV 24116 she is called ámbitame nádītame dévitame sárasvati Best mother Best River Best goddess RV 66112 associates the Sarasvati River with the five tribes; and hymn 7956 with the Paravatas and the PurusSome scholars suggest that the Vedic Sarasvati River is the same as Ghaggar Hakra River Rigveda 1075 mentions Sarasvati River flowing between the Yamuna in the east and the Sutlej in the west According to the Mahabharata the Sarasvati dried up in a desert at a place named Vinasana or Adarsana after having disappeared in the desert but reappears in few other places and finally enters into a communion with the ocean Many legends have been woven with respect to these descriptions of Sarasvati in Mahabharata and Puranas Several Puranas describe the Sarasvati River and also record that the river separated into a number of lakes In the Skanda Purana the Sarasvati originates from the water pot of Brahma and flows from Plaksa on the Himalayas Though Sarasvati initially emerged as a river goddess in the Vedic scriptures in the Puranas she was rarely associated with the river Instead she is described as an independent goddess of knowledge learning wisdom music and the arts Currently there has been a surge of activity due to renewed interest in finding the trail of Holy Sarasvati In 2015 the Indian government has set up a Sarasvati Research Institute in the state of Haryana at Mughalwali near Adibadri A channel of about three miles long has been marked out as Sarasvati Marg The digging at Adibadri has resulted in some positive results and raising the hopes that Sarasvati flows undergroundThis work is an exhaustive review of available literature and I very much enjoyed reading the book The maps showing the path of ancient rivers and how it evolved over centuries with prehistoric settlements is nicely illustrated Most notable settlement on its bank was Kalibangan where numerous archeological expeditions have yielded voluminous data on this mature Harappan civilization The last chapter summarizes the book very effectively I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in the trail of lost river Sarasvati Indus valley civilization and Rigveda
