The sheer depths of Indian Civilisation       

 

Sandhya Jain

31 Dec 2009

 

Barely seven years after Prof. B B Lal penned The Sarasvati Flows On: The Continuity of Indian Culture (2002), the defiantly-in-denial UPA has been forced to admit the existence of the Vedic Sarasvati. In response to a parliamentary question, the government revealed that a study by scientists of ISRO, Jodhpur, and the Rajasthan Government's Ground Water Department has found irrefutable evidence of palaeo-channels and archaeological sites of pre-Harappan, Harappan and post-Harappan ages, indicating the existence of a mighty river matching descriptions of the Saraswati in Vedic literature.

 

Now, once again taking the bull by the horns, Prof. Lal thunders that the Harappan or Indus-Sarasvati civilisation is not only archaeologically the oldest civilisation of India, but that it is the material counterpart of the Vedic texts! Supporting this bold hypothesis is powerful evidence from hydrology, geology, literature, archaeology and radiocarbon dating. A picture clearly emerges of a vibrant material civilisation with profound metaphysical insights in the north-western region, which bequeathed us the unity and continuity that are the hallmarks of Indian tradition.

 

Amazingly, every little aspect of our civilisation can be traced back to the dawn of our religion and culture in the Sarasvati basin. At Nausharo in pre-partition India (now Pakistan), French excavator Jean-Francois Jarrige found a small terracotta figurine of a woman, hair painted black, and red paint in the medial parting indicating the sindoor worn by Hindu married women to this day. Carbon dating traces the levels where the image was found to circa 2800-2600 BCE. Similarly, the famous bronze statuette of the dancing girl, found at Mature Harappan levels of Mohenjo-daro, reveals the continuity of the practice of wearing serial bangles on the upper arms in parts of Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat, the very regions where Harappan culture most thrived.

 

The Periplus of the Erythrean Sea, an unknown mariner's account of the sea trade between India and the Red Sea in the early centuries AD, and the seventh century Chinese pilgrim Hieun-Tsang, both mention the export of beads from India. Chanhu-daro in Sindh and Lothal in Gujarat have yielded a rich bead-making industry.

 

Far more startling is the continuity in agriculture, which sustained this rich civilisation and the arts and crafts that in turn created a flourishing overseas trade, and wealth that made India a coveted prize for adventurers in the centuries that unfolded. Excavations at Kalibangan in the Hanumangarh district, Rajasthan, from the Early Harappan circa 2800 BCE, show fields ploughed wide apart from north to south (for tall mustard plants) and shorter east-west furrows (for gram), so that the multiple crops share the winter sunshine and do not cast shadows upon each other. This pattern endures in Indian fields to this day. This era also created the ploughshare and spoked wheel, the tandoor and roti, chulha and chapatti, and pots and pans and other vessels of daily use!

 

If these seem like small drops in a civilisation as vast as the ocean, the finding of terracotta figurines in various Yogic asanas, which take the Astanga yoga of Panini (2nd century BCE) back to Harappa and Mohenjo-daro, must make us pause. It is staggering material evidence of spiritual quest accompanying great wealth, unmatched in any ancient civilisation. It is convincing proof, if proof be needed, that the material wealth desired in Vedic mantras refers simultaneously to a deeper metaphysical quest.  

 

This is augmented by the famous limestone statuette of the Mohenjo-daro priest-king, with his eyes introvert and eyelids half-closed, a meditative form later associated with Buddhist tradition, especially in Tibet and China. Yet this form of dhyana is mentioned in the Bhagvadgita (ch. 6, verse 13) which states that the gaze should be fixed on the tip of the nose!

 

The famous seals of the Sarasvati civilisation reflect later developments in Hindu religion and culture – the worship of Siva as a linga; Pasupati seated in yogic posture surrounded by animals; buffalo sacrifice; worship of the sacred pipal; the crucial role of agni in the havana or yajna; the fire altars for individual and communal worship; the kamandalus of the sadhu; the sacred svastika…  I could go on, is nothing new?

 

Town planning, especially given the chaos in our cities today, will remain ancient India's greatest contribution to civilisation. Be it Kalibangan, or Sisupalgarh near Bhubaneshwar, Orissa, the grid pattern with streets running north-south and east-west was the rage. This, it is pertinent, was an era in which Egypt or Mesopotamia (the West's favourite 'cradle' of civilisation) had no notion of such town planning – which must be conceded was original to India. To cap it all, there were covered drains and manholes for discharge of sullage.

 

Bricks were kiln-fired, and there was bonding, with bricks laid out in alternate courses – length-wise and breadth-wise – for strong walls, way back in the third millennium BCE. And clay floors were soled with fragments of terracotta nodules and large pieces of charcoal – to absorb moisture, prevent dampness travelling up the walls, and inhibiting termites!

 

Describing in detail the major Harappan settlements - Kalibangan in Rajasthan; Banawali and Rakhigarhi in Hissar, Haryana; Harappa in Sahiwal, Pakistani Punjab; Mohenjo-daro, Pakistan; Surkotada and Dholavira in Kachchha, Gujarat (which yielded terracotta horse figurines); and Lothal in Ahmedabad, Gujarat; Prof. Lal has traced the vast spread and efflorescence of a civilisation going back more than five thousand years. It is rich in agriculture and familiar with many types of grains and cereals and fruits; animal husbandry is known and many animals are domesticated – cow, sheep, goat, pig, camel and elephant; the spotted deer, blackbuck and sambhar are hunted for food; fish and turtle are known. Above all, there is irrefutable evidence about knowledge of the horse and its usage, with bones found at numerous sites, including Lothal, Kalibangan and Surkotada.

 

Vedic Harappan civilisation used its long coastline from Gujarat to Sindh and Baluchistan for a thriving sea trade with the Gulf and Africa, selling marine, mineral and forest resources to distant markets. A coffin with the deodar lid suggests that the Himalayas were sourced for wood, with logs being pushed downstream as is the practice today. There was a rich industry in bead-making, shell, ivory-working, not to mention metal, mainly copper and bronze, though gold and silver ornaments had also arrived.

 

Truly a Golden Age. The only thing missing is the inscrutable script, surely a precursor to Brahmi, the language that developed later. But who were these Vedic people – were they Aryan invaders as we were taught in school, or indigenous ancestors whose achievements were 'stolen' by ascribing them to so-called Aryans, a people who have left no traces of like achievements in any of the lands from where they supposedly descended upon the Indian plains.

 

It is now conclusively established that there was no Aryan Invasion, or even Migration (the current theory). What does remain, however, is a West-led mental resistance to accepting the indigenous origins of the Vedic (Hindu) religion, culture, and civilisation. But the time for intellectual arguments is over; it will take the further economic and military decline of the West to eclipse this denial.

fouad ajami deconstructs obama's foreign policy in the WSJ

dec 31st, 2009

foaud ajami savages obama's foreign policy in WSJ. 

(excerpts)

With year one drawing to a close, the truth of the Obama presidency is laid bare: retrenchment abroad, and redistribution and the intrusive regulatory state at home. This is the genuine calling of Barack Obama, and of the "progressives" holding him to account. The false dichotomy has taken hold—either we care for our own, or we go abroad in search of monsters to destroy or of broken nations to build. The decision to withdraw missile defense for Poland and the Czech Republic was of a piece with that retreat in American power.

In the absence of an overriding commitment to the defense of American primacy in the world, the Obama administration "cheats." It will not quit the war in Afghanistan but doesn't fully embrace it as its cause. It prosecutes the war but with Republican support—the diehards in liberal ranks and the isolationists are in no mood for bonding with Afghans. (Harry Reid's last major foreign policy pronouncement was his assertion, three years ago, that the war in Iraq was lost.)

New Year - Jan 1st or Yugadi ?

dec 30th, 2009

i have for years refused to celebrate jan 1st as anything other than a random day, which it is. 

now, the winter solstice is worth celebrating, as it is a real, tangible event -- and that is what the makara sankranti is. as i have mentioned here before, the makara sankranti in the hindu calendar has moved backward by a couple of weeks away from the actual solstice because of the precession of the earth's axes over 5111 years, which is the current year in the kaliyuga calendar, which started in 3102 BCE.

yugadi celebrates the arrival of the next kaliyuga year, 5112.

the GoI, in its idiocy, has chosen a nonsensical calendar, the saka era, which 'celebrates' a saka invasion of india. yes, of course, it was chosen by pseudo-secular 'eminent historians' who ignored the more prevalent vikram samvat. of course the hindu calendar would have been completely untouchable for them. 

why pick the stupid saka era? why not just stick with the common era?

this is like indian toll free numbers are 1-600-something or 1-800-six digits. just to be cranky and different from what the rest of the world does. 

the saka era is a dumb, irrational calendar. 

so it's best to celebrate the makara sankranti (jan 14th) or the yugadi (i forget exactly when this is). 

btw, the beginning of the kaliyuga in 3102 BCE was marked by an unusual celestial configuration of various planets: thus it marked a real event. and indian astronomers actually observed this event, which means india already was an advanced civilization by then. (note: whites couldn't believe the indian calendar was so accurate going back 5000 years -- they were sure that somebody had manufactured the astronomical tables (which of course, hoax-making and fabrication, is the white way) until they realized that it would have taken a supercomputer for people to calculate, with the precession of the axes, the tables for 5000 years ago. ergo, 3102 BCE was actually observed and the events noted down.)

O Hindus, why do you live as a Hindu and lose your soul just by imitating western lifestyle? Avoid celebrating New Year on Jan 1st. Instead observe New Year on Chaitra Shuddha Prathama, ie. Yugadi.
 
Please forward this link to all Hindus and create an awareness about the importance of celebrating 'Yugadi' / 'Gudi Padwa' as New Year and not Jan 1st.

O Hindus, live as true Hindus atleast for a day. Celebrating Jan 1st as New Year means getting converted for a day.

the thomas hoax: "truth by repeated assertion" and the continuing predation by the church

dec 30th, 2009

the bbc and that pseudo-historian william dalrymple said in a documentary that "thomas *could* have come to india". 

yes, by that token, the moon *could* be made of green cheese. and jesus *could* have existed. and mao *could* have been a good human being. 

dalrymple believes that history is what was made up, not what actually happened.

a detail: i am not quite sure who was persecuting thomas of canaan and company, but i suspect it was real chrisists -- they had codified the ideology at the council of nicae circa 345 CE, and they treated everybody who didn't accede to their "greatest story ever sold" was treated as a heretic and burned at the stake. given the date of thomas of kanaa's flight, so close to the council of nicae, it is probable that the was chased to india by those who had manufactured the bible and created the dogma. 

the point about julian is well taken. there is no value to "interfaith dialog" because these christists are liars -- they have always lived a lie, with the only intention being imperial conquest. christism is a mask for white imperialism. nothing more.

The two articles below by V. Sundaram and B.R. Haran have been edited and revised with photos and links added to them. they are now reproduced at Bharata Bharati. Together they form a very comprehensive review of the St. Thomas in India history hoax. They may be bookmarked and kept for future reference by students of Indian history. 

The St. Thomas in India fable is a matter of Indian history. This point should never be forgotten. A people who have had their history mutilated or stolen from them have no national identity. The attempt to impose this spurious communal fable on Indians by the Catholic Church is an attempt to steal the Indian identity. It should be resisted at all costs.

The St. Thomas history hoax and and the wicked men behind it are not going to go away, and it would be prudent for Hindus to keep the relevant historical references available and at hand for reference.
Also take note of Julian's Gods by Rowland Smith.... (deleted). There are many studies of Julian but Smith's is definitely the best and most sympathetic.

Julian was the last Pagan emperor of Rome. He tried to restore the Old Religion and failed. He also tried "interfaith dialogue" with the Christian  bishops and failed there too. He was killed by a Christian officer who has since been canonized by the Orthodox Church. The Orthodox Church has also canonized Constantine though he is one of the most evil and murderous kings to have ever ruled in Europe. Julian faced many of the problems we face today which is why he should be studied.

833 NGOs blacklisted for misappropriation of funds: CAPART 

Press Trust Of India 
New Delhi, December 20, 2009 

As many as 833 NGOs and voluntary organisations have been blacklisted by an autonomous body under Rural Development Ministry after they were found indulging in misappropriation of funds. 

The Ministry has conveyed information about the matter to the Standing Committee on Rural Development, which tabled its first report on Demands for Grants in Parliament on Thursday. The Committee was headed by Sumitra Mahajan. 

Council for Advancement of People's Action and Rural Technology (CAPART), an autonomous body functioning under Rural Development Ministry, blacklisted a total of 833 NGOs and voluntary organisations on November 9. 

Andhra Pradesh has the highest number of such blacklisted organisations followed by Bihar and Tamil Nadu. 

The Ministry informed that these NGOs were blacklisted for their indulgence in irregularities including misappropriation of funds, the committee said. 

Of the 833 NGOs and voluntary organisations which were blacklisted, 192 were from Andhra Pradesh, 125 from Bihar, 83 from Tamil Nadu, 75 from Karnataka, 72 from Uttar Pradesh, 42 from Rajasthan and 35 from Kerala. 

Thirty-two such organisations were from Orissa, 26 from West Bengal, 24 from Maharashtra, 23 from Delhi, 20 from Haryana, 18 from Manipur, 15 from Madhya Pradesh, 13 from Gujarat, 10 from Nagaland, eight from Jharkhand, five each from Mizoram and Himachal Pradesh, three from Jammu and Kashmir, two from Pondicherry and one each from Arunchal Pradesh, Assam, Chhattisgarh, Meghalaya and Uttaranchal. 

arvind panagariya: how over-eager india screwed up in copenhagen

dec 29th, 2009

this business of india's unilateral concessions has to stop. it is simply idiotic, eg. the unilateral 'no first-strike policy'.

once again, china pulled a fast one on india's easily-tricked negotiators. these people neither have a long-term strategy, nor are they taught game theory.

long-term bilateral relationships can be modeled as a repeated prisoners-dilemma game. it has been demonstrated that the best strategy is "tit for tat". that is, if the other party cooperates, you cooperate the next time. if the other party betrays you, then you betray them the next time.

however, india's 'strategy' is: co-operate all the time, regardless of being betrayed. this ends up being a great strategy for china, because they keep betraying india, and there is no consequence to them. and they always win in the prisoners-dilemma, because the best outcome is if one betrays and the other party cooperates.

Kolkata High Court: Muslim youth 's forced marriage to minor Hindu girl is legal

this is not 'elopement', it is abduction, forced marriage, and statutory rape of a minor.

Youth gets bail in elopement case Kolkata:

TNN 17 December 2009, 07:04am IST

KOLKATA: Calcutta High Court on Wednesday granted the anticipatory bail plea of a 26-year-old youth from Murshidabad who had been accused of kidnapping and marrying a 15-year-old girl.

Sairul Sheikh, a resident of Bakultala in Behrampore, had been accused of kidnapping and forcibly marrying Anita Roy.

A division bench of Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghosh and Justice S P Talukdar allowed Sheikh's plea after his lawyers Joymalya Bagchi and Rajib Lochan Chakraborty submitted that the marriage was legal under Muslim Personal Law. Holding the marriage legal, the court granted Sheikh's anticipatory bail application.

Anita's mother Jyotsna had lodged a complaint with Behrampore PS that her daughter had been missing since October 14. On October 15, she came to know that son Sairul had "kidnapped and married" her minor daughter. tnn

new narrative on china: poor, misunderstood, lonely, well-meaning superpower

dec 29th, 2009

i love this new positioning, the latest after 'peaceful rise'.

and equally meaningless. the truth is "predatory, imperialistic, racist, unethical, nasty, fascist nation". 

the fact is china speaks out of both sides of its mouth. when convenient, it claims it is a poor developing country. but its aspirations are those of a developed country. eg. in copenhagen it kept claiming it is a poor developing country, which is a nice smokescreen for the fact that it is THE BIGGEST CARBON EMITTER, and that it is building new coal-powered electric power plants at the rate of one a week. and then it got an agreement that prevents anybody from monitoring its emissions! thus, running with the hares and hunting with the hounds. clever, these people. 


why isn't anybody manufacturing new narratives for india? isn't that what the bureaucracy is supposed to do? something along the lines of the "good superpower" (as opposed to the "bad superpower", china)?

'chindia' is garbage: new book


dec 28th, 2009

another india-china war possible, says new book: 'chindia' is first-class bullshit.

chanakya said it best long ago: your neighboring power is by definition your enemy.
now that china swallowed the buffer state tibet, it is naturally india's enemy.

in fact china is india's worst enemy. pakistan is a chinese project: they use pakistan
as a force multiplier by giving them say $100 m worth of nuclear and other materials.
pakistan uses its fundamentalists to convert this into $1000 m worth of hassle for india.
great return on investment for china.

then there are all the insurrections -- in the northeast and in nepal and in the
so-called 'maoist' areas.

then there is the 'string of pearls' strategy -- cocos islands in burma, hambantota in
sri lanka, gwadar in baluchistan -- all ports for china to encircle india.

if india were to ensure that there is some pain to china in its conspiracy against india,
it would desist. the hans are well-behaved if there is some pain applied to their bottoms.

more thoughts on nd tiwari

dec 25th, 2009

this guy at 85, i bet he couldn't really do any damage to the nymphets.

there was a great japanese novel (translated as saha-sayanam in malayalam) by i think yasunari kawabata, about old japanese men who pay to sleep -- just sleep -- with young teenage girls (who are drugged).

i doubt if tiwari could manage any more than that.

but as san said, this is what the kkkangress has been doing since the beginning: old goats screwing young women and the country. the First Prime Minister started this trend -- apparently he was one randy guy; his daughter (i have this on authority of kerala christist m o mathai who was her private secretary, and who, according to him, used to um... bonk her too) was another randy one. surely the grandson and great-grandson are continuing in the same vein.

i get it -- that's why they are/were such intellectual giants. heard the expression -- pardon my french -- "bonked her brains out"? apparently the guys had the reverse effect -- their brains (um... using the term loosely) fell out during/after vigorous bonking.

i saw tiwari once some years ago. he didn't appear to have much by way of brains then. i guess he lost them the same way.
