1 Ajay Mitra Shastri
Ancient Indian Heritage Varahamihira's India, 2 Vols
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1996; 817305083X / 9788173050831; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Though the great worth of old texts as a source of cultural History is widely acknowledgeed, astrological writings are generally supposed to be deficient in this respect. The erroneousness of the notion will be best illustrated by a glance at the present work dwelling from this angle upon the priceless historical data enshrined in the treatises of Varahamihira, one of the most celebrated astronomers-astrologers that India is justly proud of. His writings afford precious information on practically every aspect of life one can think of and happen to contain the earliest extant datable treatment of several topics in the absence of earlier texts dealing with them which were eclipsed by the comprehensiveness of his works. The present Book takes a critical view of all the information afforded by them objectively in a historical perspective, checking, corroborating and supplementing it from contemporary literary and archaeological sources and highlighting the antecedents and subsequent ramifications in many a case where found imperative. The topics dealt with include, inter alia, historical geography, iconography, idol worship. Indra's festival and other reliogious rituals and practices, varieties of necklaces, perfumery and other items of toilet and personal adornment comprehending hair-dyes, tooth-sticks, umbrellas, chowries and betel-chewing, agricultural and horticultural practices, gem industry and trade, role of Astrology in everyday life, civil and religious architecture, plasters, sculpture, iconometry, earlier literature on a variety of topics much of which is now known only from Varahamihira's works, genesis of the name Varahamihira, Jovian cycles of twelve and sixty years, Meteorology and rainfall, and location of sub-soil water-resources. Thus, this happens to be perhaps the only work presenting critically at one place so much information on so many diverse topics of interest to students of geography, religious history, cosmetics, jewel industry and trade, Agriculture and horticulture, civil and religious architecture, meteorology and hydrology.

2 Ajay Mitra Shastri
Ancient North-East India (Pragjyotisha)
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8173052190 / 9788173052194; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"It is often stated and the common people made to believe that the people of what was anciently called Pragjyotisha and its surroundings in the north-east were outside the mainstream of Indian life and culture, and the Aryans attempted to colonise them and impose upon them their alien culture. The utter falsity of this motivated propaganda has been amply demonstrated in the present work with strong evidences. It has been shown that the word arya had originally no racial or linguistic connotation and that in the past it was employed in purely cultural sense. It was given, evidently deliberately, a racial sense by the Europeans with a vested interest to sow the seeds of dissension among their Indian subjects and thereby perpetuate their rule which has confused large sections of people. It has been shown that from the earliest recorded times the people of the north-east and those of the rest of India were aware of and had a close interaction with one another. And with the passage of time these contacts grew more and more intimate and the region in question and the rest of the country contributed to the common cultural development enriching each other. The monograph thus seeks to trace chronologically and in a pan-Indian perspective the politico-cultural contacts that the region had with the rest of the Indian people." Printed Pages:148 with 44 halftone illustrations. 100205

7 Ajay Mitra Shastri
Great Ages of Indian History Vakatakas: Sources and History
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8173051232 / 9788173051234; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Indian subcontinent was dominated by the Imperial Guptas and Vakatakas for some 2.5 centuries beginning mid-third century AD, and is period is rightly styled Vakataka Gupta Age which formed the classical phase of early Indian history. A reappraisal of Vakataka History has become imperative in the light of the recent epigraphical and Numismatic finds with many of which The Author was closely associated. And in the perspective of these finds a fresh assessment of the extant evidence was also felt essential, and this twin exercise is aimed at in the present work which sheds fresh light on many a baffling issue. To mention only A Few conclusions, the original Vakataka territory lay in the Vindhyan region of Central India, wherefrom they immigrated about 300 AD under Pravara Sena I into Vidarbha to spread their wings far and wide; Kanchanaka, modern Nachna, was their first dynastic capital, there being no mention of Purika in the Vakataka Context in the Puranas; the Vindhyan region continued under the dynasty till the time of Prithivi Shena I; Damodara Sena and Pravara Sena II were two distinct personages who ascended the throne one after another, Narendra Sena's accession was disputed and towards the close of his reign he was deprived of his kingdom by his Vatsagulma cousins; his queen Ajjhitabhattarika was probably a Kadamba Princess; Prithivi Shena II recovered the lost territory besides keeping the Nalas at bay; the Vatsagulma branch of the dynasty aspired to spread its wings in south and west from its very inception; Sarva Sena II interfered into internal affairs of the Kadambas of Vanavasi and put his protege Simhavarman on Kadamba throne and the former's son Deva Sena extended his kingdom at the cost of Kadambas right up to Bidar region of Karnataka besides trying to destabilise his Pravarapura cousins; both the branches ended their political career owing to the growing ambitions of their erstwhile vassals and foes from south and west; Dandin's Dasa-kumara-charita has no bearing on Vakataka end.
