Studies in the Historical Geography of Ancient India

O.P. Bharadwaj (Author)
Synopsis This volume containing twenty research papers embodies the results of deep and intensive research marked by great critical acumen in the fields of historical geography, history and ethnography of ancient India, based on a wide and penetrating study of ancient Indian, based on a wide and penetrating study of ancient Indian literature-Vedic, classical and Prakrit, as well as the most recent investigations in the field of epigraphy and archaeology. The learned author has brought to light new facts and revolutionising interpretations of exiting source material giving the lie to the superficial derivations based on mere sound similarities as is convincingly exemplified by his epoch making identifications like that of Ludhiana with the Ailadhana of Valmiki’s Ramayana; of the Shiwalik hills with the Salvakagiri of Paninis; ganapatha, of Nahan with Naubandhana of the Great Epic and the Puranas, of the Bhadanakas with the Yaudheyas of Bahudhanyaka; and of the Mahavrisas with the people of the proto historic Indus culture. The author has remarkably succeeded in clearing the mist which enveloped many a geographical name in the ancient land of Brahmavarta and the Brahmarshidesa. The Study of this delightful volume will be at once rewarding, illuminating and enriching.
