Abhyudaya Kelkar

However it may be very much historical, as the pretext and course of war justify the Aryan diaspora and colonization of northern Indian sub-continent. We will talk about the various aspects of this war in the lesson. Some lesser known facts about Ramayana and Mahabharata and some unique observations out of the analysis will also be discussed. Further, there was a significant deterioration in the society by the end of the Vedic period.
