    - not sure if I posted this link before, but here is a series of videos produced by a Hindus with the help of a grant from an educational foundation. This is just the first one, on ancient times. So often our history is presented with a western bias.

    Skepticism is always good. As you well know, in Hindu studies, you can never please everyone. All you can do is attempt it.

    "The History of Hindu India (Part One) was developed by the editors of Hinduism Today magazine in collaboration with Dr. Shiva Bajpai, Professor Emeritus of History, California State University Northridge. It is intended to provide an authentic presentation of the history of India and Hinduism for use in American 6th grade social study classes, as well as Hindu temple study groups and general presentations on the Hindu religion and history. The documentary is based on the first chapter of the textbook, The History of Hindu India, published in 2011. For more information and for class lesson plans based on the book visit www.hinduismtoday.com/education/. Funded by the Uberoi Foundation, Institute for Curriculum Advancement. May be freely distributed for educational purposes."

    I watched all five videos in the series and found them very educational. Thanks for posting this, @Vinayaka!

    I am an advaitist Hindu and a strong atheist.
    With my problem in hearing, I will go to the book (what is detailed in hours of video, I will get it in a few minutes. Later, I can go to video for visuals). Thanks.
