The phrase “Rigvedic History” is as paradoxing as “dark sun” – Just as sun cannot be dark, similarly vedas do not have any history.
This attempt of imagining history in vedas in a grave mistake we make which robs our dharma of its true identity and makes it vulnerable to attacks of anti-culturals.
If Vedas contain history, then all other texts, including new Purans at once become fraud texts without any further analysis. The list includes:
a. New Purans (Shiv, Vishnu, Bhagvat, etc etc)
d. Darshans (Yoga, Nyaya, Meemansa, Vedaant etc)
g. Smritis: Manu etc
and all other texts of ancient times which we associate with our culture or knowledge.
Because each of them procliams clearly that Vedas/ Shruti are first knowedge to mankind, given at
beginning of creation and hence self-sufficient proofs. This is one common theme that unites all the various factions of so-called Hinduism.
To say that Vedas contain history because of words like Pururuva, Ram, Tutvasu is like saying Bhagvad Puran and poems of Soordas are stories of BJP because it contains mention of Lal Krishna Advani, Murli Manohar, Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley, Atal, etc.
Its like saying history of freedom struggle is about ancestors of Sushma Swaraj.
Half-baked self-proclaimed intellectuals inspired by Max Muller et al continue their spree to discover various crazy people in Vedas. So far the list contains Christ, Muhammad, Kabeer, Ram, Krishna, etc etc.
Let us analyse vedas from its true context. only then shall the mantras make sense. Else if you search a place in London with map of New York, failure and wastage of time and energy and creating confusion in others would be the only outcomes.
