Uff...this Anumakonda Kaifiyat is throwing many surprises. Just look at the number of temples in Warangal.
Mahadeva had leprosy
and his elder brother Rudradeva was destined to kill his father.
Now, how does this reconcile with the fact that Prola was killed at the head of his army on an invasion of Draksharamam?
Now...now...now. Mahadeva rebelled when his brother died but his nephew gave him the throne voluntarily.
Rudrama Devi his wife and their daughter Ummakka is married to Chalukya Veerabhadra.
Born in 1244, Prataparudra was 80 years at the fall of Warangal 😳
Absolute mess of timelines 😂😂
I never heard of Kakatiya armies marching into Gujarat or Kashi. But I know Yadava Ramachandra crashed into Kashi once...
Two sons, eh?
Why do I have a feeling this story is about Malik Maqbul and not Prataparudra?
Annama Deva made Virabhadra the king in Warangal and left to Bastar along with his nephew.
Forget about Krishna Raya or Achyuta. This tells that the royal line is known to exist at least till 1500-1550.
Just like Baghdad was built by dismantling Ctesiphon, Zafargadh was built by dismantling Warangal.
Think about it. If Warangal itself is plundered by Marathas, think of the miserable position of the armies of Hyderabad.
Kakatiya ruling family is known even into 1700s?
The thing with Kaifiyats is, they talk about local legends and collective memory. There can be discrepancies in dates and names but facts generally won't be wrong. The real question then would be, what and all of these are true.
Now look at Pratapa Charitra. Who would have assumed that Prola is Sanskritized as Kakatipralaya?

To search for something, I opened Nilakantha Sastri's Further Sources of Vijayanagara History and I came across a few good poems. Let me post a few over Krishna Raya.
Siege of Bidar - a Chatuvu by Allasani Peddanna
Another one on the siege of Bidar. This is a good one.

Just look at the comments. Same like India. Hatred for Trump is drowning the whole discussion - can Facebook or Twitter censor American Government? People have already thrown that question away.
And if this is really that email, both Twitter and Facebook made a mess of themselves. Just look at the English. Chaireman and such spellings. Obviously fake.
So, allowing leaked(not exactly leaked, but stolen and photoshopped) Rafale documents is fine?

Many would have read this by now. But, still.
What you desire is contrary to dharma. If you stick to
Hinduism and Fatima follows Islam it will be like putting two swords in one sheath; or you both may lose your faith. And then what should be your children’s faith?
Whose influence are they to grow under? It is not dharma, but, only adharma if Fatima agrees to conversion just for marrying you. Faith is not a thing like a garment which can be changed to suit our convenience.
For the sake of dharma a person shall forgo matrimony, forsake his home, why, even lay down his life; but for nothing may faith be given up. May not Fatima have meat at her father’s? If she does not, she has as good as changed her religion.

You compare San Fransisco and India like this.
You don't compare San Fransisco and Mumbai like this. Why?
So, what's the trigger?

“Chamatta, tu yahan biryani bekega. Haath jod”
Epidemic yes, but I have two questions.
1. What part of this is because of reservations?
2. How deep was this caste divide 50 years ago?
Why 50 years? Because that's when caste politics got mainstreamed and Naxalite movement erupted. For example, take Ranveer Sena. Why was it formed and what has it become?
Can we do a sincere dissection of this problem called caste atrocity and do a comparative study of this across religion and geography? Not just a comparative study. We need to understand how brutal it was as compared to the contemporary world and what were the seeds of discord.

Let me present you a situation. There is an ancient kingdom of which we know nothing. This kingdom was invaded and subjugated. Now, the one who conquered it changed it's religion completely and wrote it's history in a way that the new religion existed always.
We land in a situation where archeology gives us only ruins, all old literature and all old references wiped out(sometimes violently) and the new country hates it's old culture. I am not talking about Christian Europe or Islamic Arabia. I am talking about Tibet.
One image is enough to tell you the extent to which Tibet divorced itself from it's past. This is Goddess Srin Mo, who is a personification of Tibet. When she resisted introduction of Buddhism into Tibet, she was pinned to the ground with Buddhist temples.
