Be prepared to change ALL your views about India. Sanjay Sonawani’s work will turn your understanding of India up side down.
My FB post a moment ago. I think this is worth sharing.
AN EXTRACT FROM SANJAY’S BRILLIANT WORK – DRAFT, IN PROGRESS. HE GOES TO THE HEART OF THE PROBLEM: THE MUTE ACCEPTANCE BY INDIAN SCHOLARS OF A PATENTLY FALSE HISTORY OF INDIA THAT WAS CREATED BY THE BRITISH (WHO WERE BIASED DUE TO A RACIST IDEOLOGY)
I THINK 99.99 PER CENT OF INDIANS WILL BE COMPLETELY SURPRISED BY SANJAY’S FORENSIC ANALYSIS. ALMOST EVERYTHING THEY KNOW ABOUT INDIA IS FALSE.
The Indian elite who arose from convent schools in which books by British historians (e.g. Vincent Smith and Rawlinson’s Oxford Student’s History of India) were taught effectively started believing that the Vedas were the source of their religion and that an Aryan Invasion had enslaved the aboriginal masses. They had no alternative way to verify these claims. This created a rift between the so-called aboriginals and the Brahmins.
It did not occur to the scholars on both sides that if there was a rift it must be religious in nature. They even forgot to ask why the deities they worship at home are absent from the Vedas and its allied literature. They did not ask about the strong ritualistic difference between the Vedas and the daily religious practice of Hinduism, a difference that could not have existed if the two religions were the same. The explanations given by Vedic scholars were mutely accepted. For example, it was said that the victorious Aryans accommodated some of the aboriginals Gods as part of their assimilation process. This surprisingly lame explanation went unchallenged for more than two centuries.
