At the same time, a new computer software was developed, which could verify astronomical dates given in many ancient texts. Once the astronomical data was verified to be correct, it added to the overall credibility of the concerned texts. This work takes cognizance of some of the new data, and discoveries, and attempts to correct some clearly, unacceptable concepts about ancient history, handed down to us from the colonial period of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. In doing so, the authors have also tried to show the various paths of cultural development that had taken place prior to the current era of our history. Indeed they could claim to even show the initial origins of human civilization, as it exists today. This book arrives at some challenging conclusions, and claims to solve puzzles of our ancient history, that had been inducted in the textbooks of the colonial period. It also calls fro the cleansing of political and religious prejudices from the pages of earlier historical works, which had scant attention to developments considered to be politically unsavoury. This work calls for the recognition of truths about our ancient past, even if they had not been favoured in the past.
