Re: Indian History Discussions - III

Interesting that the foreign media is claiming something that none of the DDM (as of June 11) have claimed: "Dig finds No Sign of Temple in Ayodhya". This is a far more definitive claim than what our DDM tried to spin few days before ... ie no proof in 15 of the trenches dug as Kaushal has pointed o...

Acharya, in addition to the passage you quoted, look at these jems: When I went to India the first time, in 1963, a knowledgeable friend said to me, "You will come back loving them or despising them."

Re: Indian History Discussions - III

Sudharshan, it depends on which Russians and which East Asians the samples were taken from.

"Average" values are only an indication and many models can be fitted to the data. Specificity is the key to interpreting this data.

Re: Indian History Discussions - III

HH, thanks for trying to reason this out with me. First of all, do you agree with my previous observation? But I will point out that one should not use "average" as a comparison because the very effect of averaging tends to normalize the data thus washing out any interesting trends which may be disc...

Re: Indian History Discussions - III

HH, I meant to say "twin lies about Brahmins" not "twin lies of Brahmins". I know there is a big difference between the two sentences, so I going to edit my earlier post. Thanks for pointing it out. I think Kaushal understood what I meant to say.

Re: Indian History Discussions - III

IMO, the "current era" aka, CE is a misnomer and does injustice to civilizations such as the Chinese and Indian which can trace their past well into antiquity. I would suggest using following terms. 12003 CCE = 2003 AD where CCE = "Current Civilization Era" if one wants to refer to any events in the...

Victor, when I looked at the painting, first thing which came into my mind is that its describing a battle field. Rahul, how sure are the archeologists regarding the date? If its 40,000 yrs old, that would the oldest cave paintings in the world. They are suspiously well preserved for their antiquity...
