“March of the Aryans” by Bhagwan S. Gidwani

March of the Aryans book

 

March of the Aryans
In a remarkable feat of imagination and research, Bhagwan S. Gidwani takes us back to the dawn of civilization (8000 BCE) to vividly recreate the world of the Aryans. He tells us why the Aryans left India--their native land--for foreign shores and shows us their trimphant return to their homeland. Here are characters like the gentle god, Sindhu Putra, spreading his message of love; the hermit, Bharat, who inspired the dream of unity, equality, human rights and dignity for all; the physician-sage Dhanawantar and his wife, Dhanawantari; peace-loving Kashi after whom the holy city of Varanasi is named; and Nila who gave his name to the river Nile. Vast and absorbing, with a cast of thousands, <i>The March of the Aryans </i>is a gripping tale of kings and poets, seers and gods, battles and romance, and the rise and fall of civilizations.

 Introduction

I firmly believe that everyone must know where he comes from, where his ancestors resided and what his roots were.

A civilization is kept alive only when its past values and traditions are recreated in men’s minds, faithfully and thoroughly, without the element of fancy and distortion. A generation that remains unaware of its roots is truly orphaned.  The present silence, blankness, oblivion about our ancient past represents a theft from the future generation as well and the tragedy we face is that the soul of our culture could well wither away.

Already, we are moving towards a cultural holocaust in which our children may acquire much intelligence, power and intellect, but neither wisdom nor virtue, and not even the faith to serve as the consolation of their dreams.

 

But then freedom in 1947 did not bring a fulfilment of our dreams. Day by day, the menace grows from within. In the final analysis the greatest danger lies not outside our borders, but inside, and in our soul and spirit.
