This is yet another book to justify the brutal invasions of others into India, when it says "Aryans' invaded India; when even the brutality of other later day invaders failed to leave a favourable mark on India, the so called Aryans are full of india, that goes to show the fakeness of the theory of aryan invasion. Learn authors Learn, to fathom the truth, which is Indian/Aryan mind.
