AND SOCIAL RAMIFICATIONS
This is one of the great necessities
of the global era. That nineteenth century views of history may be as
biased or out of date as nineteenth century views of science or politics
should not surprise us.
What has happened in India, the misinterpretation of its ancient
history and a new move to restore validity to it, is reflected in much of
the new archeology developing throughout the world, particularly
when native people take up the task of interpreting their own history. The misinterpretation of the Vedas was
part of a general inability to understand or recognize ancient
cultures outside of the Middle East (in fact many of these were also misinterpreted). We can expect
new discoveries in other parts of the world showing a greater
antiquity and sophistication to a number of cultures.
