Dear Friends,

The Chairman of the ICHR, Prof. Y Sudershan Rao, has released a report into
the activities they will faciliate in the near future.


>From this document it says that:

*National Seminar on “Antiquity, Continuity and Development of Civilisation
and Culture in Bharat up to first millennium B C”: Theme:The land south of
Meru (the Himalayan range) was traditionally known as Bharat, of which the
land south of the Vindhya Range was known as Dakshinapath as an integral
part of it.*

I find my interest piqued by the following assertion that:

*Ancient literature describes the country as a single well defined
geographical unit from the Himalayas in north to the Indian Ocean in south.
It is generally agreed that the culture and civilization of Bharat was
continuous without a break.*
Might anyone be able to point me towards this "ancient literature"? I would
like to read it.

All the best,
