Allama Iqbal


Recently, I came to know about a fact about Allama Iqbal’s, when a colleague of mine, Vivek Rawal enlightened me that Iqbal’s ancestors were Kashmiri Pandit. He and his family, who have the same bloodline, are keenly interested and working on to bring this fact to the notice of public and to correct the history records in this regard, although this fact is disputed by some scholars. Vivek also told me about an article of Khushwant Singh, which appeared in The Tribune, Chandigarh’s 30.06.07 Saturday edition. Kushwant Singh has narrated the ancestry of Allama Iqbal.

Your views are invited on the issue. If anybody has the evidence to support this view or against this view, please provide.

River Saraswati : a myth or a reality


My View : It is very much a reality. The scientists have proven this fact. The flow of river Saraswati can be seen from space. The photographs taken from space have clear images of this ancient river. Hindus believed it from centuries as the details of river Saraswati are available in the ancient scripture. It has religious importance also. The famous pilgrim Prithudak (modern day Pehova which is near Kurukshetra, Haryana) is full of facts about this river

Ramayana: only an Epic or a real story?


My View: I believe it to be a true story. The places mentioned in Ramayana and Ramcharitmanas eg. Ayodhya, Sri Lanka are real places and the journey of Rama from Ayodhya to Sri Lanka, as depicted, appears to be real. The remains of a bridge between India and Sri Lanka are a proof of this journey. A place near Amritsar, “Ramtirth”, is said to be where Ashram of Valmiki was and where Sita remained with Luv and Kush. There are a lot of such places associated with the Ramayana.

Did Aryans migrate from outside?


My View: Aryan can not be from any land other than ‘Aryavrat’. In old times, they resided in plains south and south west of Himalyas. It is a myth that they pushed Dravidans southwards. In ancient times, Aryans and Dravidans had good relations and there is no proof of any conflict between them. On the contrary, they had common religious texts, idols, places of worship etc.

Wazid Ali Shah: a wise king. Not a king of vice


My View: I don’t find any king more intelligent and art loving than king Wazid Ali Shah of Avadh (Lucknow). He revolutionized Kathak, Thumri. He was a scholar. British distorted his image for their selfish motives.
