History of Vedic India

Zenaide A Ragozin (Author)
Synopsis It is a unique book written by a dedicated scholar who has obviously taken infinite pains to investigate and interpret the Rig Veda which is without the shadow of a doubt the oldest book of the Aryan family of nations, in contents, if not in actual tangible shape. He has given some original interpretation to the hidden significance of Rig Vedic Hymns as revealed to the seers and sages whose names are associated with them. He builds his hypothesis on the labours of earlier generation of scholar luminaries like Hunter, charles Wilkins, sir William Jones, Colebrook and others. He has thus woven the fabric of history of warrior-kings and sages of the Rig Vedic age. The book (Rig Veda) throws floodlight on the highly advanced and complex history and culture of Vedic Age which had developed some essential social institutions, such as royalty, aristocracy and priesthood as the background of an already long and eventful natural past. Some 120 years ago no one would have thought or connecting Aryan and Pre-Aryan India with archaic babylonia. But archaeological evidence now reveals that India had well-established commercial intercourse with Babylonia and Chaldea. The author devotes one full chapter to the cosmogony and philosophy of the Rig Vedic age. The ancient seers ask most profound questions about the origin of nature, universe and man. And some are answered best when left unanswered.
