#attrocitiesbyASI #ASI was found in 1861 headed by director general. for the past 70 yrs, this post have been occupied by upper caste #Sanskrit scholars mainly #brahman.
why no one from #OBC, #SC or #ST?
If #tamil and #sanskrit are the oldest languages of the country.
recently it has been established that tamil is the oldest through #keezhadi #keeladi.why no importance has been given to the tamil language?
why ASI doesnot recruit tamil scholars for conducting studies in south?
#arikamedu is the first site of archealogical importance to be found in india. in 17th century by french.
In 1945, wheeler, then director gen of #ASI found out that it is a indo-roman trade town.c.1 BCE to c.2 CE.
