Neolithic era and has crossed the line yonder that. Out of four classification of
iconography the Author has created a new classification of iconography as the Ancient
Iconography of India by including Ekapāda Bhairava of Bhairon Pāhād of Ghudar in the

“A Hugely Significant Break-through in Indology” :
“Some fixed dates identified for Prehistoric India of 15th Century BC”
Rig-Veda mentioned 237 times that Indra killed Ahhe, identified beyond all doubts as Ashur-Nadin-Ahhe-I of Assyrian Kingdom in the year 1433 BC when Indra [original name was “Idrim” before deification by Rig-Veda, as per Idrim’s own Statue-Inscription and clay tablets discovered from Alaka [ Turkish name ‘Alalaka’ City ruins] was a vassal king under the ‘Mitanni Kingdom’ in present Turkey-Iraq area. Warlord Indra, the vassal king of Alaka from 1449 BC to 1433 BC, killing King Ahhe-I, but failing to take over his kingdom, left Mesopotamia forever, and made his fortune and created a great history by successful invasion and conquest of some parts of India first in 1432 BC, many times till 1390 BC, establishing 4 Aryanised Kingdoms, Suryavamshi, Chandravamshi, and Yadava Dynasty, and a kingdom under Tuvasha, and his own Aryavarta Empire in mainly Afghanistan and part of Iran and Central Asia, with his capital at Harivarta [ now Herat] on the bank of river ‘Hari-Rudra’ , now called “Hari-rud” having his multiple protectorate kingdoms and vassal kings in present India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, locations as specified or indicated by Rig-Veda, while describing 15 major wars of Lord Indra, capturing, colonizing and Aryanzing of the-then greater India, including Pakistan Afghanistan and part of Iran, induced and sponsored writing of ” Rig-Veda” making himself the “King of all the Vedic Gods”, making his own Chief Priest Vrihaspati as Devaguru, his 63 Cavalry Chiefs was God Mautas, his own employer in Alaka vassal state, King Barattarna of Mitanni Kingdom between Assyrian Kingdom and Hittite Kingdom deified as God Mitra [ Sun] , the-then Babylonian Emperor Burna Buriash, named as God Varuna, his “war-designers Ashvin-twins as God Nasatya, all together 12 chief gods of Rig-Veda were all living humans of 15th Century BC in Mesopotamia, and out of 33 total gods of Rig-Veda, natural phenomena Fire, Sun, Air, Water, Rain, and hard drink Soma were major Gods, and rest were very minor gods. Thus Indra was the creator of Vedic Hinduism, introducing foreign invaders as worshipable Gods for the captured parts of India, taking all the gods names from Mesopotamian Gods’ names, and he himself changed his mortal name “Idrim”, glorifying him with the Indo-Aryan Kassite War-God’s name “Indas” with little modification as “Indra” and the Rig-Veda in Cuneiform Scripts became so popular that within 50 years Indra, Varuna, Mitra and Nasatya appeared as God for oath-taking, in the Royal Treaty Texts of Mesopotamian Kingdoms”. A great revealing research work, enlightening and delighting in reading these texts backed by constant supporting reference of unquestionable authenticity. Hope this book will be a “must-read” for people willing to know the ancient world and forgotten past from India to Turkey now.
