To construe or decode 'The History of India' is one of the most cumbersome things to do for a common man, due to a variety of reasons. Most of the Indian history is shrouded in myths, legends and mysteries. To chalk out a structure or outlining or defining it requires several inputs from numerous sources. Also, there are certain techniques involved to do it. Since it is never easy to interpret the undefined past of this almost continent, buried under the various layers of hundreds of cultures spanning many millennia, there are 'hordes' of hurdles that make the study difficult albeit interesting. The history begins with zero, i.e. the Stone Age and this is exactly what we are going to discuss in the lessons, apart from the sources of history, the hurdles and positioning. The Stone Age can be divided into three parts viz., Old, Middle and New ones. Along with these three, we shall also discuss two quasi-Stone Age topics - Chalcolithic Age and Megaliths. However these two cannot be designated as 'Stone Age' cultures, yet the two 'lithic' periods contribute substantially to the beginning of Indian History, in some way or the other.
