Indians talk frequently about the economy of ancient India along with many other topics and always mention China. Chinese barely if ever talk about India in the same terms and do not look to us as peers as much as we like to pursue that belief. A proud civilization stands on its own, not under the shadow of others.

Western Historians (mainstream at present) portray Europe and China as the two notable powers throughout history and leave India out of the discussion even during our Golden eras. India is mentioned as a mere footnote if at all in summaries of human history. Doesn''''t mean this is reality (which I am certain it isn''''t). Clearly not an accurate portrayal of history but since (at present) the West produces the most research they are seen as the premier authority on these matters. Many great Indian libraries and monuments were destroyed by invaders. India is really in "the dark ages" at present in terms of scholarly research and scope of study of history in India is very limited (WE NEED MORE NON BIASED INDIAN HISTORIANS TO TAKE UP THIS IMPORTANT WORK).

西方历史学家(目前的主流)将欧洲和中国描绘为历史上的两大引人瞩目的强国,却将印度排除在外,甚至我们的黄金时代也一样被忽略了。在人类历史的总结中,印度仅仅是一个注脚——并不意味着这就是事实(我确信不是)。显然,这不是对历史的准确描述,但由于(目前)西方进行了最多的研究,他们被视为这些问题的首要权威。897172.com_【官方首页】-澳门威尼斯人印度许多伟大的图书馆和纪念碑都被侵略者摧毁了。印度目前在学术研究方面确实处于“黑暗时代”,印度历史研究的范围非常有限(我们需要更多没有偏见的印度历史学家来从事这项重要的工作)。

Many ancient sites across India are known but have not been excavated at all because of limited funds and perhaps overall lack of initiative. I think the deciphering of Indus scxt, if accomplished, will be revolutionary in our understanding of world history. Recent genetic studies are already suggesting Indian merchant presence as in Mesopotamia and eastward migration from India.
