1 Greek civilization. How do historians explain Alexander receiving gift of Indian sword? How do historians explain Alexander receiving gift of Indian sword from Purushottama after getting defeated, after the Macedonian troops revolted and refused to go beyond Jhelum? Here is a picture which adorns rhe Steel Institute premises in Ranchi. Was Alexander defeated in the war fought on Jhelum river bank? Who was spinning myths as history? See: Kalyanaraman Sarasvati Research Center It is good to learn from Sri Kalyanaraman about fraud perpetrated on the world, about Greek origins of Western Civilization. Truly it is said , no body changed the course of history more than a historian. So it is, especially so with history of India since it came to written by enemies of India. Plutarch was contemporary of Alexander. Like Al Beruni who accompanied Mohd Gazni and left his impressions about him and India, Plutarch noted the fraud Alexander foisted on future generations.

2 East India Company hired historians who were followed later by Macaulay, Marx disciples all hailed Alexander's victory over Purushottam or Porus. The reason for this fraud , since India was then subjugated by British, is to show that Asians were no match for West, their place is to be a colony for superior Europeans.Karl Marx also felt the same way . Despite all pretensions of being anti-imperial , Communists of India and Marxist historians of India remained most loyal subjects of her or his majesty faithfully indoctrinating the views of British and Marx on unsuspecting students of India. However Marshall Zhukov who led Russian troops to victory in II war, who also studied military history had different opinion and please see the article that follows, Sri Kalyanaraman's E Mail. Alexander lost the war in India, and retreated but never reached his Macedonia alive. He succumbed to wounds he received in a Gana Rajya or a democratic republic of Malavs of Multan, Punjab. This is yet another instance, why India needs a thorough review of history in light of many recent findings and critic against baseless prejudices such as Aryan invasion theory or giant contributions of Islam to India etc, incorporated as history in our texts taught to students of India.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
