Aryans Revisited

 
Ramendra Nath Nandi (Author)
Synopsis This book on Rgvedic history underlines the need for considerable fresh thinking in Vedic research, rigorous stratification of texual materials, new methodology and discarding notional ideas derived from a selctive view of the data.The idea that the family books of the Rgveda constitute the earliest and homogeneous part of the text and that these represent the exclusive record of pastoral nomads is found to be too simplistic to meet the challenge of divergent and overlapping social processes. The book dispels the myth that the Aryans destroyed Harappan cities, that they were unfamilier with the high-seas and sea-faring and that the term Aryan always signified a fair complexioned people.Myths of a different kind resulting from bardic mix-up of unrelated informations also need careful shifting of data for delineation of historical or semi-historical episodes, related characters and geographical areas.Existing generalisations on polity also need questioning in view of valuable evidence bearing on territorial states and rituals legitimising territorial sovereignty.
