This book deals with two major controversies about India’s past. First, it has been asserted by many scholars, 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.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 to demonstrate that many of the present-day cultural traits are rooted in the Harappan Civilization.
