Dear Venkat Sriram,
Take the so called discoveries of late Kota Venkatachalam and his admirer
late Viswanatha Satyanarayana with a pinch of salt.
The majority of historians do not support thier so called findings.and all
these people are not biased admirers of west.
India is already great. We do not require these far fetched speculations to
establish its greatness.
I am an admirer of Monier Williams. I have absolutely no reason to be
ashamed of it. I use his dictionary whenever I need
and find that it helps me. Hating him will be hypocracy.
When will our panditammanyas realise that westerners are doing tapas in
order to discover
scientific knowledge and we are sitting and passing irresponsible comments
