Historyicity of the Mahabharata: Evidence of Literature, Art & Archaeology
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8173054584 / 9788173054587; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
To the faithful, everything mentioned in the Mahabharata is true to the very letter, whereas the skeptic holds that the epic is nothing more than a mere figment of imagination. How, then, can one ascertain the truth? It is here that archaeology comes to our rescue. In 1951-52, Professor B.B. Lal excavated the key-site of Hastinapura, situated on the bank of the Ganga, in Meerut district of Uttar Pradesh. Over here he encountered in the lower levels a settlement which was distinguished by a characteristic pottery called the Painted Grey Ware, assignable to circa 1100-800 BCE. This PGW Culture has since been discovered at all the Mahabharata sites—a feature which binds them together. Further, the excavation revealed that a heavy flood in the Ganga destroyed a considerable portion of the Painted Grey Ware settlement at Hastinapura. This archaeological evidence is duly corroborated by the Vayu Purana which states: “when the city of Hastinapura is carried away by the Ganga, Nichk¦u will abandon it and dwell in Kausambi.” The shifting of the capital from Hastinapura to Kausambi is, in turn, supported by the fact that in the lowest levels of Kausambi has been encountered the same kind of degenerated Painted Grey Ware as had begun to appear at Hastinapura prior to its destruction by the flood. Thus, the combined evidence of archaeology and literature duly establishes that the Mahabharata is not a figment of imagination but has a basis in historical reality. At the same time, it is on record that the epic underwent eleven-time inflation 8,800 to 1,00,000 verseshence it is difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff. But let not the precious wheat be thrown away with the chaff.Printed Pages: 116 with 42 colours & b/w illustrations. 100129

Piecing Together: Memoirs of an Archaeologist
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8173054177 / 9788173054174; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In 1921, just when Daya Ram Sahni struck his pickaxe at Harappa in Punjab, bringing to light the earliest civilization of the Indian subcontinent, in a far off village in Uttar Pradesh was born a child, named Braj Basi Lal, who, in time to come, was ordained to carry on the mission of Sahni at Kalibangan in the Sarasvati Valley in Rajasthan. He discovered over here many new features of the Harappan Civilization, including the earliest (circa 2700 BCE) agricultural field met with anywhere in the world. One of Lal's passions has been to ascertain if there was any historical basis for the two great Indian epics, viz., the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. The book marshals the evidence from various sites excavated by him, which shows that these epics did have a basis in history, though they are full of interpolations. The book also deals with the Mandir-Masjid issue at Ayodhya and shows that there existed a Hindu temple in the Janma-Bhumi area prior to the construction of the Babari Masjid. Finally, the oft-debated issue of 'Aryan Invasion' of India has been dealt with, showing, in unequivocal terms, that there was no such 'invasion' nor even 'immigration' and that the Vedic people were indigenous to the Indian soil, their roots traceable back to the 6th millennium BCE. On the contrary, literary-cum-archaeological evidence shows that some of the Vedic people themselves migrated as far west as present-day Turkey, early in the 2nd millennium BCE. Interleaved with these archaeological discoveries are certain narratives which give a glimpse of Professor Lal's personal life - a naughty (nasty?) boy, affectionate teachers, 'rebirth' in 1957, interactions with fellow archaeologists, whisked away by a damsel, surviving five major car accidents without any injury and lessons he learnt from his life. The Epilogue says it all. Printed Pages: 288 with 20 colours & 24 b/w illustrations. 100156

The Earliest Civilization of South Asia
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8173051070 / 9788173051074; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The most ancient civilization of South Asia, Variously known as the Harappan, Indus or Indus-Sarasvati Civilization, far excelled its contemporaries in other parts of Asia in a number of ways. Not only did it cover a much greater area than did any other civilization, but it also produced urban centres, duly fortified and characterized by meticulous town-planning, efficient drainage system, etc. The Book presents a multidimensional study of this grand civilization. Some scholars have held that this South Asian civilization was an import from the west. When called upon to produce concrete evidence, they fumbled and took shelter under the theory "ideas have wings". The book demonstrates that almost all the characteristic features of this civilization had indigenous origin. The Harappan Script still remains undeciphered. The book points out where the various decipherers have gone wrong. It further shows that even no two Dravidianists see eye to eye nor do two Sanskritists. The book brings out an interesting picture of the social stratification of the Harappans. An in-depth analysis of the various kinds of data clinches the issue about the dating of the Mature stage of the civilization : from circa 2600 to 1900 BC. 'Marauding' Aryans can no longer be held responsible for the destruction of the Harappan Civilization. Perhaps climatic changes, environmental degradation and a steep fall in trade robbed the civilization of its affluence. Urbanism breathed its last. The surviving harappan villages must have whispered to one another : Cities may come and c'ties may go, but we go on for ever.

The Sarasvati Flows On: The Continuity of Indian Culture
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8173052026 / 9788173052026; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"First. It has been asserted by many scholars, both Indian and foreign, that the Sarasvati mentioned in the Rigveda is the Helmand of Afghanistan. The author examines the entire Rigvedic evidence and demonstrates that it goes counter to aforesaid assumption. On the other hand, there are compelling geographical data in the Rigveda itself which unambiguously show that the Rigvedic Sarasvati is none other than the present-day Sarasvati-Ghaggar combine which flows through Haryana and Panjab. Though now it dries up near Sirsa, the dry bed, sometimes as much as 8 kilometers in width as picked up with landsat imagery, shows that anciently it continued all the way down to the Rann of Kachchha. "Second. It has no less vociferously been orchestrated that the Aryans "invaded" India, as a result of which the Harappan civilization became "extinct". The author shows that there is no evidence whatsoever to suggest any invasion, much less by the Aryans. On the contrary, there is ample evidence to demonstrate that many of the present-day cultural traits are rooted in the Harappan civilization. Thus, you should not feel surprised if you travelled 4500 years back in time to a Harappan settlement and found a lady busy applying sindura (vermilion) to her manga (line of partition of the hair on the head), or a farmer ploughing his field in the same criss-cross pattern as do the Haryanavis or Rajasthanis today. If you wanted to place an ‘order’ for tanduri rotis, you could very well do so with a Kalibanganite 4800 years ago. Yogic asanas, which have new-found lovers even in the west, were as much a pride of the Harappans. Or, should you feel like being greeted with a namaste, a Harappan would be only too glad to oblige you. The soul of India lives on!"
