Purushottam Nagesh Oak

Purushottam Nagesh Oak was born at 9.54 a.m. on March 2, 1917 at Indore, India in a Maharashtrian Brahmin family. His father conversed with him only in Sanskrit, mother in English, family relations in Marathi and the town-folk in Hindi. That provided the young Oak with fluency in the four languages at an early age.He studied in Agra and Bombay and obtained his M.A. and LL.B. degrees from the Bombay University. He served for a year at Pune's renowned Fergusson College as an English tutor. Later he joined the army and was posted in Singapore. He was 24 then.

After the surrender of the British in Singapore, Oak took up the work of an organizer of the Azad Hind Fauj (Indian National Army) under Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. He became a director and commentator of the Free India Radio at Saigon and later a co- worker of Netaji Bose.

At the end of the war, Oak hitch-hiked from Singapore to Calcutta across many frontiers. On return to India, he took up journalism as profession. He served on the editorial staffs of the Hindustan Times and the Statesman, both in New Delhi. Later he served as a Class 1 officer in the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India and then as editor in the U.S. Embassy's Information Services, also in New Delhi.

P.N. Oak made some far-reaching and astounding discoveries in history regarding the so called Muslim architecture in India. His discovery that Shahjahan did NOT build the Taj Mahal, that it was already in existence several centuries before Shahjahan was born and the subsequent confirmation obtained from carbon-testing done under the guidance of Prof. Marvin H. Mills of New York, has created a sensation. (Read his works: TAJ MAHAL - The True Story and THE TAJ MAHAL IS A TEMPLE PALACE) He is a prolific writer on historical subjects, in English, Marathi and Hindi.

P.N. Oak is the Founder-President of the Institute for Rewriting Indian History. Oak's historical acumen led him to discover that even world history has gone wrong at many places. According to his latest discovery, prior to the Mahabharata War, Vedic Culture and Sanskrit language pervaded the whole world. Oak is keen to found a World Vedic Heritage University to educate the world in the primordial Vedic unity of all humanity. To that end, he invites correspondence from those willing to join hands with him.
