the course is for the month of December and you will find it under my profile By the name "The Hindu Editorial analysis "
a little correction is needed in this lecture because Godavari is known as Dakshina Ganga and Kaveri known as Dakshin BHARAT ki Ganga .
Mam, You mentioned both Godavari and Kaveri as Dakshin Ganga, but NCERT saya Godavari as Dakshin Ganga. Also, please do reply to the quetions in the comments, so that we understand why both are called Dakshin Gangas and we too feel confident about your courses, if there is an interaction
