Utter Nonsense, Racist!!! A person who hardly knows anything about history!!.
Somebody who simply denies existence of Vikramaditya can never be called a historian but rather a fool. Cant believe how does Vikrama Era means era of Azes, where the name itself is Vikrama, while Shaka era goes on to become Kanishka's while he not a Saka. Hilarious!!
