I quote:
- given half the chance, modern historians of ancient India will not stop
at anything!
- writing was known in historic India around 500 BC.
- orthodox ‘comparative philologists’ of the nineteenth century.
- strong smell of racism
- Birch leaf fragments have been identified in its Black-and-Red Ware
level dated around 800 BC [for nothing but writing]
- direct hard evidence
sancta simplitas!
The lamented and truly knowledgable dear friend Iravathan Mahadevan had
