Since our childhood what amazed us is the diversity in our country: India. We always wondered how and why, we have so many gods, traditions, practices, beliefs and myths. We tried to look into the evolution of the religious thought in this country. Through this, we tried to see racial movements from, to and within India.
Typically, the development of any discipline involves the following four components:
- A set of facts that have emerged from archaeological studies, written documents: in stone, papyrus, palm leaf or carried by oral tradition which includes all sorts of literary works
- Analysis of the above mentioned data
- Hypothesis built to bridge the missing portions
- Arguments and counter-arguments to support hypotheses when there are differences
Our aim is to share the observations, analysis and hypotheses that emerged out of our study.
We follow a semi-formal scheme while developing our ideas: we present the facts, then draw conclusions based on them and discuss the possible multiple interpretations.
The literature in this area is vast, many not easily available either, therefore making the study not very easy.
Scientific curiosity is the only guiding force for this research. We have no intention to support any faction, or any ideology, or any religious movement, or nationality or belief. We respect all beliefs, all human thoughts done with dedication and sincerity, with “quest for truth” as the only motive. We welcome suggestions and guidance from the learned in the relevant fields.
