The Glory of Kirat History

The Glory of Kirat History
or, the missing chapter from Vincent Smith’s Oxford History of India.

As the name suggests, this history of ours does not merely default one of the great historians of the British Empire, but fills up the void he created with an ebook titled “The Glory of Kirat History” which contains accurate historical details such as:

1. Kiratdom of Kathmandu in relation to Manjusri, Swayambhunath and Yellung Hang;
2. the historicity of the Kirati Bungsawali;
3. the significance of Swayambhu Puran in historical perspective;
4. The Buddha’s (and later Ashok’s) relations with Kiratdom of Kathmandu;
5. Kirati Mongolian monks travel eastward from Nepal to Thailand and beyond to Indonesia and likewise westward to Judeo-Christian World;
6. How Pali was refined into Sanskrit by pre-brahminic scholars; no brahmins were present in Kiratland and how they entered subsequently etc etc

No history of India existed before the Europeans arrived, except for the Moslem period who used to maintain very exhaustive chronicles of their realm. Sir Vincent Smith researched and wrote Oxford History of India, published in 1920 covering the period from Pre-Historic Age to British Raj thus earning himself the official title of Herodotus of India. However, for unknown reason Herodotus excluded everything about Mongolian people of this region from Gautam Buddha to Ashok and the Great Volkerwanderungen of the people from Gangetic Plains to the Far East. Following his precedent, no historian has ever written more than a cursory mention until now. And, this is good enough a reason why you want to read this book.
