Orion, or Researches into the Antiquity of the Vedas

Bombay: MRS, BiDHiBil iTMiRAM 8AGOON, AND PUBLISHER

For example, it was in a direct challenge to Britain's imposed history of civilization, that India's great scientist (and political leader), Bal Gandgadhar Tilak, proved that India's culture was far more ancient and advanced than the oligarchy's Mesopotamia. In his 1893 Orion, or Researches into the Antiquity of the Vedas, Tilak demonstrated that the description in the ancient Vedic hymns of the position of the constellation Orion at the vernal equinox, necessitated dating the compostion of these hymns back to 4500 b.c.. His 1903 The Arctic Home in the Vedas extended the time-frame back even further, to the period of the last Ice Age.
