Tripathi, is a revised and reorganized presentation of papers read at a seminar held on 7-9 January 2002 at India International Centre, New Delhi, jointly sponsored by the Indian Council of Historical Research, New Delhi and the Centre for the Study of Indian Tradition, Madhubani. Besides scholarly papers, Prof. Tripathi provides an illuminative introduction to the seminar theme. The book looks at the problem in the light of new evidences and perspectives, and critically reviews and various theories on the subject. The book urges fresh efforts in this area focusing on the period of Rigveda as well as the inadequacy of the dispersal theory of languages and underlines the need to focus scholarly gaze on indigenous origin and growth of languages. Arranged in 25 chapters by eminent scholars, the collection provides readings in archaeology, linguistics, remote sensing, palaeoclimatology, palaeo-astronomy and archaeo-genetics, and a veritable combination of them, related with the issue of original homeland for Indo-European languages and culture. This volume is one set of discourse in the hermeneutic of differential readings in the present horizon of debate.
