Re: Out-of-India - From Theory to Truth: Part 2

But Rajesh how do we reconcile 30 odd generations between ramayana and mahabharata as our scriptures suggest? There is a listing of Suryavanshi kings, where Rama is 64th and Brihadbala is 94th at whose time Mahabharata is supposed to have taken place. Actually after Agnivarna, the 88th king, there ...
