An impressionistic history of the South Asian subcontinent - 3

Before commencing the writing of history, there are a few things that need to be declared.

The first item is about the attitude.

This writer has no posture or belief that he himself is very intelligent and well-informed and that others are of less intelligence and information.

From long years of intimate contact with people from varying social levels, it has been very clearly and directly understood that most people have various kinds of intelligence and information.  

However, it has been noticed that the people of this peninsular region in general and those people who speak feudal languages, in particular do have certain limitations. What this is shall be declared and explained later. 

This writing of this writer has one deficiency. That deficiency is connected to the common behaviour of the people of this location. This problem is actually a mere reflection of the feudal or hierarchical language codes present in the location.

In this subcontinent, there are various language speakers, people of different religions, and people of varying castes and professions, held shackled in varying levels. Language codes have created a multitude of mental phenomena in them.

Among those items, the item most relevant here is the various kinds of claims to a superior social heritage and antiquity seen claimed by people of all religions, castes and languages. This item will be explained in detail later.

What has to be mentioned here is that the writings of this writer has the deficiency that without being partial to anyone, the most possible truth with regard to antiquity is noted down without any compromise.

This writing style has angered many caste, language and religious group people. However, these very people would be very happy to see the realities noted down of other groups who they view with a competitive mind.

There is something more to be written about this.  It shall be done in the next post.

Before concluding, I wish to state one more thing. It is this:  

Even though this writing has a very clear philosophy, aim and such other things, it is not the aim of this writing to disparage, or to insult or to cast accusations on anyone.

However, when mentioning the personal activities of certain persons, which have significantly influenced the direction of flow of historical events, the aim is not to heap denigration on those individuals.

This writer is not a person who has the capacity to point fingers at another man’s failings or personal weaknesses. And there is no claim that persons who do have such capacity are not in existence.
