Q.

There does not exist a history of ancient India. Their books contain no historical data whatever, except for a few religious books in which historical information is buried under a heap of parables and folk-lore, and their buildings and other monuments also do nothing to fill the void for the oldest among them do not go beyond the third century B.C. To discover facts about India of the ancient times is as difficult a task as the discovery of the island of Atlantis, which, according to Plato, was destroyed due to the changes of the earth... The historical phase of India began with the Muslim ?

Hinduism is often regarded as the oldest religion in the world, with roots tracing back to prehistoric times, or 5000 years. Over time, Brahmanism gradually became Hinduism. Hinduism was spread through parts of Southeastern Asia, China, Korea, and Japan. Hindus worship a god with different forms. (Vishnu the preserver is an important Hindu deity.)Evidence attesting to prehistoric religion in the Indian "subcontinent" derives from scattered Mesolithic rock paintings depicting dances and rituals. Neolithic pastoralists inhabiting the Indus River Valley buried their dead in a manner suggestive of spiritual practices that incorporated notions of an afterlife and belief in magic.[14] Other South Asian Stone Age sites, such as the Bhimbetka rock shelters in central Madhya Pradesh and the Kupgal petroglyphs of eastern Karnataka, contain rock art portraying religious rites and evidence of possible ritualised music.[15]

The historical phase of India began with the Muslim invasion. Muslims were India's first historians."

You are free to believe whatever that makes you feel good.
What difference does it make?
At least living in the (real or imaginary past glories) helps to obliviate the pain of the current pathetic situation all around you.
