Peace be upon you @Aabhas24 ji.
You certainly don’t disappoint me! The practise of sophistry is the very basis of Hindutva #history, but this grotesque inferiority complex has assumed the level of an art-form, lately.
However, let me take your pamphleteering apart, yet again!
Your profound insecurity - and of many others - about the #Aryan invasion, (you ignored the term “incursion” I used), is staggering. However, I tend to agree with the thesis by @tjoseph0010 that “we are a multi-source civilization”. This is also partly due to multiple invasions…
…over millennia.
You may like to believe that #India was always genetically and culturally a homogenous entity and that there was no invasion/incursion/influx from outside.
The “Genetic Sciences” you allude to in fact confirm the opposite to be true.…

#BookOverview The Poisoned Heart by Nandini Sengupta @nandinisgTOI

The second book in the #Gupta empire trilogy, The Poisoned Heart is a saga of tragic love, treachery and hard-won battles in the inner reaches of a once-mighty empire

@nandinisgTOI @IndicaBooks Skanda Gupta, the grandson of the great emperor Chandragupta #VikramAditya, is at the helm of the still-mighty Gupta Empire

Brave, noble and a living legend, the emperor is fighting hard to save his legacy from wave after wave of invasion, intrigue and insurrection
@nandinisgTOI @IndicaBooks The borders are restive; the palace is swirling with conspiracies; and the Huns are back. Into this cauldron steps Rohini - an enigmatic half-Hun runaway. She is a riddle Skanda cannot crack. Might she be an assassin, or a #spy ?

1. We all saw the #destruction caused by visible #looting in #SAUnrest & communities are reeling from the impact. But about 1000 times of what it will cost to repair last week’s damage, was “invisibly” looted through #StateCapture & #corruption. Here are some highlights
2. According to @ShadowWorldInv1 the #ArmsDeal of the 1990’s cost SA an estimated R2,2 billion looted to pay bribes and kickbacks. To date nothing has been recovered. Money that could have changed the poor’s lives wasted on #GrandScaleLooting.
3. In 2015 @CompComSA found #construction companies #GroupFive, #WBHO, #BasilRead, Murray&Roberts, #Aveng & #StefanuttiStocks guilty of #colluding when building 2010 FIFA World Cup stadiums. This added R14 billion to construction costs. (Your taxmoney!)

Am 24.06 - 26.06 findet die Schwurbel-Veranstaltung "World Freedom Forum" statt.

Mit dabei sind einige spanische Vertreter, aber auch einige Lokal-"Helden" (wie Heiko Schöning und Reiner Fuellmich) sind dabei.

Schauen wir uns einige der Teilnehmer näher an. Image
Reiner #Fuellmich (#dieBasis), der mit zweifelhaften Aussagen bezüglich Corona auffiel.

In einem Werbevideo erklärte der Anwalt, "das Virus in seiner Gefährlichkeit nicht gefährlicher ist als eine normale Grippe".

Ansonsten versucht Fuellmich mit "Sammelklagen" gegen Drosten & Co. zu punkten. Mit recht überschaubarem Erfolg. Nämlich gar keinem.

Eine sehr gute Zusammenfassung von @Anwalt_Jun.

Adding useful info from #Inscription of #Gupta era (~320-550 CE) in this thread in support of सत्र (#Temple Kitchen, अन्नदान) tradition of Hindus

• Place - गढवा (Pic 1)
• Dist. - प्रयागराज, #UttarPradesh

1/n ImageImage
गढवा is a #Fort near to प्रयागराज. Ancient name of this place was भट्टग्राम.

Some 6-7 Inscriptions are found from here in #Sanskrit language. Most of them are badly damaged and so incomplete but still giving useful information.

This गढवा #Fort houses many beautiful #Temple ruines of #Gupta era.

From this Temples, Inscriptions related to अन्नदान (सत्र) are found. They reveal that wealthy people of पाटलिपुत्र (Capital of Gupta Empire) donated a lot for sustaining this सत्र tradition.

#SDNY Judge Rakoff in sentencing Pinto-Thomaz for #insidertrading says maybe today, AUSAs wish more went to trial- thread
Judge Rakoff, after giving 2 points for acceptance of responsibility, says guidelines are irrational, over focus on money
Pinto-Thomaz didn't get $298,000 but only a fraction (from hair dresser, in Home Depot). Now Mazurek cites fetish of math
