5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening, thought provoking & a must read
Congratulations to the author of this amazing book who dares to contradict the flawed and long standing bogus view of history in our text books.
It is widely accepted history as we know it has been falsified and this book is just the remedy to start awakening the truely inquisitive and intelligent mind to look at alternative view points.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening, thought provoking & a must read, 29 Dec. 2005
Congratulations to the author of this amazing book who dares to contradict the flawed and long standing bogus view of history in our text books.

The brainwashed masses who beleive humans evolved from apes will find nothing agreeable in this book, this includes academics and historians alike because they are 'too far gone' down the path of nescience. Others who are open minded and who actually question the authority of the so called knowledge they have received will find benefit in reading this book.

This review is from: Proof of Vedic Culture's Global Existence (Paperback)
Very engaging book from a very knowledgeable person who must have dedicated thousands of hours in researching the material presented.

Make up your own mind about what you believe. History has many faces and it depends from what angle you are looking at it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking but highly flawed, 2 Dec. 2003
An interesting book that presents the possibility that Vedic culture was more globally dominant during ancient times. Many of the ideas sound very plausible and provide a fascinating insight into what the world may have been like spiritually and philosophically prior to the emergence of the philosophies and theologies we see in practice today. However, in his zest to make his case, the author appears to completely circumvent the normal strategies employed by scholars when presenting hypotheses. Claims are made without proper support or references, perhaps due to their "word of mouth" nature, linguistic connections are made without proper basis and without recourse to properly established theories and relationships are established which, without the proper support and given currently accepted knowledge, appear to be simply the product of the imagination. The result is a book with many interesting and plausible connections alongside emotive and unsubstantiated claims, many of which seem laughably wrong. This tends to erode the credibility of the work somewhat.
However, if the reader is willing and able to filter out the seemingly ridiculous parts there is still an interesting alternative world viewpoint to be gained from this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice theory but shaky historical research!!!, 4 Sept. 2003
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Readers should be aware of glaring "howlers" in this book (eg: 'In England we find towns such as Lancashire, Pembrokeshire, Hampshire and Wiltshire'); far too many statements without any source references; a predilection for inter-changing letters in place-names to sound like Sanskrit words; far too much reliance on early 20th century writings by 'esoteric' historians; incorrect assertions as to the origin of certain place-names (eg: Canterbury is NOT connected to the Sanskrit word 'Sankarpury' - its origin lies with the early British tribe in that region - Cantiae); the horse races at Ascot from 'Aswacot' meaning 'city of horses'???? - REALLY!!!; incorrect translations from Russian and other Slavic languages (eg: 'malka' does NOT mean "mother" - it means "small") . . . .
A pity, really, because his book is an interesting hypothesis: would that he had taken more care, and not tried to "bend the facts"! I really feel awkward about having written that, because as a "Hindu" I feel I should be supporting the author more - but I am also a Local Historian!
