As I mentioned in my unicorn article, the main point of my argument is
based on the proper understanding of the meaning and significance of the
Vedic words /par?s'a-asa/ and /s'aphau/. The /Atharvaveda/ 5.14.3
clearly states that /pari-s'a-sa/ is a single object protruding above
the skin of a /r.s'ya/. This object cannot be other than the single horn
of the animal, because, except the horn, other organs that protrude from
the body of an animal are not sturdy enough to make a pair of tongs
known to Vedic people as /pari-s'a-sau/ or /s'aphau/. My critics,
including Vedic specialists, gave no attention to this important point.
However, I know very well that there are scholars, who have no problem
understanding my arguments.
