Hindu inscriptions are actually Government records. Therefore, they provide us authentic and detailed information about historical events and people that they record. A single inscription often contains valuable information related to events occurring in different periods. In fact, some inscriptions are so profound that merit a serious study for its own sake.
Hindu inscriptions also exhibit a powerful element of civilisational and cultural
continuity and reveal the fundamental unity of India cutting across kingdoms and geographies within this sacred land.
However, it is astounding to note that till date, there are any number of Indian history scholars who parrot the colonial British falsehood that Hindus have no sense of history. Our inscriptional wealth is perhaps the most glaring proof to the contrary.
What is dharma? Why is this idea hailed as the greatest philosophical concept of India? What aspects of this dharma apply to everyone?
Through the course of this book, Dr.Ganesh describes how dharma provides us with a perspective to appreciate the best in any religious or secular value system across time and place. It is the universal set that encompasses the greatest teachings of all possible philosophies.
By the end ,the reader will become aware of the magnanimity and magnificence of the ancient Indian way of thinking and will agree with the great seer Manu when he writes.
“Among all dharma’s,
the greatest is self knowledge.
It leads to immortality. ”

Stories Behind Verses is a remarkable collection of over a hundred anecdotes, each of which captures a story behind the composition of a Sanskrit verse. Collected over several years from various sources with tireless effort by Śatāvadhāni Dr. R Ganesh, these stories took the shape of the Kannada book Kavitegondu Kathe. When this was published in 1996, it was a first of its kind. It gained wide popularity among the critics and the laity not only for its riveting episodes but also for its mellifluous writing.
This book is an English adaptation of Kavitegondu Kathe by Arjun Bharadwaj and Shashi Kiran B N, who have captured the original in both letter and spirit. Witty, romantic, melancholic, provocative, poignant, and profound by turns, Stories Behind Verses will tug your tendermost strings of feeling and stir your emotions.₹287.50₹287.50

It is a compendium of what constitutes universal values carefully culled from primary and secondary sources. The book bridges the past and present by reinforcing the relevance of Samanya Dharma in contemporary times.₹111.55₹111.55
The Mystery of Arundhati
The Mahabharata text contains the history of one of the key events of Indian civilization, viz. The Mahabharata War. The text is a rich depository of customs and culture, science and philosophy of the Mahabharata era. The Mahabharata is the longest epic poem known and consists of over 100,000 shloka and is roughly ten times the length of the Iliad and the Odyssey combined. The Indian tradition calls the text the Pancham (fifth) veda.
It is then natural that numerous attempts have been made to date the events of the Mahabharata war. There are more than 125+ claims, by those many different researchers, for the timing of the Mahabharata war. Unfortunately, majority of these claims are based on either selective evidence or dogmas of AIT/Kaliyuga and show characteristics lack of scientific acumen and logical reasoning. This is precisely the reason why researchers have ended up with 125+ different claims while simultaneously claiming to have employed identical evidence.
What could be the outcome if one can employ all the evidence of the Mahabharata text and test it objectively with the help of science? Is it even possible to accomplish such a thing and arrive at a unified answer?
Nilesh Oak enumerated 215+ specific astronomy and associated observations from the Mahabharata text and tested them with the scientific acumen and logical reasoning to arrive at 5561 BCE as the year of the Mahabharata war.
The book explores unique astronomy observations from the Mahabharata text that decisively falsify 96%+ of all existing claims for the year of the Mahabharata War.₹361.10
The book ‘When did the Mahabharata war Happen?: The Mystery of Arundhati’ decisively falsified all claims for the Mahabharata war that claimed the year of the Mahabharata war after 4508 BCE. Objective testing of the astronomy evidence (215+), internal to the Mahabharata text, led to 5561 BCE as the year of the Mahabharata war. Arundhati-Vasistha (AV) observation was decisive in falsification of 96%+ of the existing claims for the year of the Mahabharata war.
Many Indic researchers, lacking scientific acumen, comprehension, and logical reasoning skills, thought, incorrectly, that AV observation was the only observation that led to the falsification of all claims that fell after 4508 BCE. Naturally, they made illogical, dogmatic, evasive, digressive attacks on the validity of the inference due to AV observation. Their attempts to discredit AV observation backfired and rather led to further strengthening of AV observation and its importance for the validity of 5561 BCE as the year of the Mahabharata war. In their dogmatic zeal, these researchers even questioned the Mahabharata evidence itself that asserted the duration of Bhishma on the bed of arrows for more than 92 days.
What these researchers did not realize is that the very details of Bhishma Nirvana provide evidence that not only corroborates inference of AV observation but also strengthens 5561 BCE as the year of the Mahabharata war.
In this book, Nilesh Oak employs 300+ specific astronomy and associated observations from the Mahabharata text and tested them with the scientific acumen and logical reasoning to arrive at 5561 BCE as the year of the Mahabharata war. The book describes evidence that asserts the impossibility of the Mahabharata war anytime after 4700 BCE (Bhishma Nirvana + Lunar calendar evidence), or 5125 BCE (sensitivity analysis). The evidence presented in this book decisively falsifies all alternate claims for the year of the Mahabharata War.₹361.10₹361.10
Rama Ravana Yuddha
Valmiki Ramayana contains the history of one of the key events of Indian civilization, viz. The Rama-Ravana Yuddha. The Ramayana consists of nearly 24,000 Shloka, divided into seven Kandas and about 500 Sargas. Valmiki Ramayana has the status of the adi-kavya (first poem).
There are 15+ attempts to date the events of Ramayana. Unfortunately, the majority of these claims are based on either selective evidence or dogmas of AIT/Chatur-Yuga cycles and show characteristics lack of scientific acumen and logical reasoning. This is precisely the reason why researchers have ended up with multiple claims while simultaneously claiming to have employed identical evidence.
What could be the outcome if one can employ all the evidence of the Valmiki Ramayana and test it objectively with the help of science? Is it even possible to accomplish such a thing and arrive at a unified answer?
Nilesh Oak enumerated 575+ specific astronomy and associated observations from Valmiki Ramayana and tested them with the scientific acumen and logical reasoning to arrive at 12209 BCE as the year of the Rama-Ravana Yuddha. The book explores unique astronomy observations from Valmiki Ramayana that decisively falsify all existing claims for the year of the Rama-Ravana Yuddha, and thus the timing of Ramayana.₹361.10₹361.10
