    I feel a little conflicted about this book on one side it is wonderful to read a perspective on the dawn of civilisation and the kind of denizens our land had but on the other this is clearly a work of fiction and the author himself states that his sources are not any written ones but oral traditional memory from different parts of the world It is clearly aimed at debunking the Aryan invasion theory and tries to show that the Aryans had merely returned to their place of origin after traveling to many parts of the worldIn addition to demolishing the invasion theory the author also tries to show that the Dravidian culture was not really independent in origin but that civilisations on the Ganga Sindhu Saraswati and other regions all had a common point from which they all emanated The author uses the character of the Sindhu Putra an ordinary human mistaken to be a form of God as his anchor in the first half of the book and albeit indirectly his influence is also what led the Aryans to travel to China Afghanistan Sumeria Egypt Russia Europe in search of a land that was pure While the first half is about Sindhu Putra uniting the land with a common belief system the second half deals with the Aryan exodus and their trials and tribulations as they travel to far off lands The book is adapted from his earlier novel Return of the Aryans I remember reading it a long while back I found the narrative of this book a bit lethargic and the connect to modern words places and customs that the author tries to establish sometimes forced That's not to say that he is not right it is just that the coincidences are a little hard to imagine The plot seems as though the author had clear resting spots in mind before he started outIn essence though I appreciate the intention of the book I am not sure if this was the right execution I wouldn't be surprised if someone at some point in time classifies this as history starting another round of misconceptions

    too slow too many different sub stories not particularly gripping

    The book seemed of a series of Social commentary than a piece of fiction Surely an eye opener for people looking to know about our Prehistoric past The language is simple with expressions that linger in mind A must read for all history enthusiasts

    This book is uite imaginative and goes against the accepted historical viewpoint But somehow remarkably author is able to put a believable narrative most of the historians believe that Aryans came to India from somewhere near Caspian sea but to us Indians it has always felt that we belong to our motherland forever But book narrates a story of Aryans who go out of India to civilise whole of the ancient world and then generations later came back to India bringing with them alien cultures and norms
