For many, the demand for a separate state of Telangana was something new when they first heard of it in 2009. It was perhaps out of context, given that school textbooks also barely mentioned the name. However, the origins of Telangana's creation and demand as a separate state in fact go back to when the state was part of the erstwhile Hyderabad state, which was under the Nizams. To understand how, from there, the state was first merged with the Andhra areas and then became separate, host Yunus Lasania speaks to Prof Kodandaram, who led the statehood struggle as chairman of the Telangana Joint Action Committee, and with Vijay Burgula, son of Burgula Narsing Rao, a freedom fighter from the Nizam era who was a staunch pro-Telangana voice.

The year was 1991. And it was the peak of Ram Janmabhoomi movement. The country had seen communal riots in Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka and Andhra a few months ago, leaving scores dead and P V Narasimha Rao was in the Prime Minister's seat. It was then that the Rao government introduced a law in an effort to put a lid on any future controversy arising out of the ownership and character of any place of worship in the country. This was introduced to prevent another Ram Janmabhoomi movement kind of controversy from erupting. The Babri mosque in Ayodhya was razed a year later. While introducing the Bill in Parliament, then Home Minister S B Chavan had said that it will effectively prevent any new controversies from arising in respect of conversion of any place of worship. “An Act to prohibit conversion of any place of worship and to provide for the maintenance of the religious character of any place of worship as it existed on the 15th day of August, 1947, and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto,” reads the Act. The law, Places of Worship Act, 1991, lays down that the character of a religious place cannot be altered from what it was on August 15, 1947-- the day India got its independence. So, if a building was being used as a temple on August 15, 1947, it cannot be turned into a mosque, church or a gurdwara. While Section 4(2) of the Act says any suit or legal proceeding with respect to the conversion of the religious nature of any place of worship existing on August 15, 1947, pending before any court, shall abate. And no fresh suit or legal proceedings shall be started. The Bill had met with vehement opposition from the BJP in Parliament. While referring to Kashi Vishwanath temple-Gyanvapi mosque dispute, Uma Bharti had then asked, “Was not the intention of Aurangzeb behind leaving remnants of the temple at the site of mosque, to keep reminding Hindus of their historical fate and to remind coming generations of Muslims of their past glory and power?” A five judge bench of the Supreme Court, which had in November 2019 ruled in the favour of the Hindu litigants, had also quoted heavily from the 1991 Act. “In preserving the character of places of public worship, Parliament has mandated in no uncertain terms that history and its wrongs shall not be used as instruments to oppress the present and the future.” While holding the sanctity of the Places of Worship Act, 1991, the bench led by the then CJI Ranjan Gogoi had said that they were making an exception in case of Ayodhya as it was an ongoing episode. The bench had said that “history and its wrongs shall not be used as instruments to oppress the present and the future.” “Non-retrogression is a foundational feature of the fundamental constitutional principles of which secularism is a core component. The Places of Worship Act is, thus, a legislative intervention which preserves non-retrogression as an essential feature of our secular values” The apex court had said that the Places of Worship Act, 1991 is a legislative intervention which preserves non-retrogression as an essential feature of our secular values.

There was once a little girl in Mumbai who would go to school every day and fret over the three R's ... reading, writing and 'rithmetic. She was dyslexic and these shibboleths of the conventional education system just didn't talk to her. She would come home feeling frustrated, sit in the kitchen and see her mother (a Gujarati) and paternal grand-mom (an Andhra'ite) cook for the family. This was her happy place. She would see the joy that the food cooked by the two ladies would give to all at her home and then had her eureka moment, 'cooking can be my super power.' 'I want to be a chef,' she told her mother. Not that our young hero had any reference point to go by then. Her dad was a renowned musician. Her mother a scientist in pharmacalogy. Her parents did not say anything. A few days later, the little girl and her mum were travelling down Dadar in Mumbai in a cab. "See that building to our left?" asked mum to her daughter. "That is where India's top chefs come from." Fast forward a few years and our superhero, now a teen, cleared the competitive exams and walked into the hallowed portals of IHM, Mumbai, aka the 'Dadar Catering College." 'Hallowed portals' became synonymous with the story of chef Niyati Rao. She said goodbye to India's straightjacketed education when school got over. She came into her own at college and then walked down the 'hallowed portals' of Taj Mahal Mumbai, where she worked at the legendary Zodiac Grill, the Chambers and Wasabi, Mumbai, at the very start of her career. She then spent some time at A Reverie, Goa, where she learnt what it meant to helm a kitchen and create a menu. More 'hallowed portals' followed. She worked at Noma, Copenhagen, for a while before the pandemic and a personal health crisis made her return to India. After two years of cooling her heels at home, a message from Sagar Neve, once a fellow intern at the JW Marriott, Mumbai, led to their getting together and opening Ekaa, Mumbai. Will it gain 'hallowed portals' status one day is anybody's guess. Some say Ekaa is India's best restaurant...our food media glossies do tend to go overboard at times. Others were in a hurry to say why it is not 'India's best' ...we are the original 'crab in a pot' country after all. Chef Niyati has no time for this. As the co-founder and head chef of Ekaa, her focus is to put ingredients first. And the customer. That's all. Oh and yes, after her Noma experience, she is hellbent to make India proud by "the time I am done with it." Sounds like the stuff of a biopic? Hold on. Niyati is just 28 (!) and has many more stories to create. For now, do listen to the podcast where for the first time ever (yay) she talks about her life and dreams as a chef. Oh, and she is a fellow cat parent and our respective cats sat by us during the interview. #FoodocracyForHer by Kalyan Karmakar is India's longest running podcast featuring women entrepreneurs in the food and beverage business.

Two essential ceremonies are conducted in Brahmin Households in the South. These are followed as a More than as one sanctioned by Sruthi or even Smriti. More is a Group of practices followed by a specific group rather than as a matter of personal choice. These are followed in the South of India, in the States of Tamil Nadu,Karnataka, Kerala and Andhra. One is Samaradhanai and the other is Sumangali Prarathanai. Samaradhanai is conducted before or after an auspicious occasion like Ayush Homa, Upanayana, Pilgrimage , Marriage. This is conducted for any auspicious occasion. This is conducted either before or after the event . In Samaradhanai , Family Deity is worshiped at Home and people are fed. In Sri Vaishnava Sampradaya, this is called Dhadhiyaarathanai. In those case where people are not sure of their Family Deity, the Pooja is offered to Lord Subrahmanya, in the case of Iyers, and in the case of Sri Vaishnavas, Lord Balaji. The other ceremony is the Sumangali Prarthanai. This again is a custom practiced and it does not find a reference in the Sruthi or Smriti. This function is more of sentiments practiced in the Family. This has to be performed, as a thumb rule, following the practices of the ancestors .While it is not advisable to start this practice if it has not been practiced by the ancestors, it is equally essential note that the practice is not to be discontinued if it had been in vogue in the Family. This is a function meant for women, married with Husband being alive. This has to be performed once a year for one Gothra and more than once in year should not be conducted. Tuesdays and Saturdays are to be avoided. Fridays during the Waxing of the Moon is advisable. Wednesdays/Thursdays are also permissible. Ashtami,Navami Thithis are normally avoided. Panchami is preferable. In this function the Blessings of the departed Sumangalis, those whose deaths precede the death of their husbands are sought and those who died young before getting married. Generally, if the daughter is getting married, the event is done before the marriage. In the case of a son getting married, this is performed after the marriage, with the Daughter-in-law conducting it. 7 ladies and 2 young girls (preferably below the age of 10) are invited to participate in the function, partake the feast and receive thamboolam. The total number of ladies should always be in Odd numbers. The maximum number of ladies allowed normally is 11. Minimum is 5 +2. Advisable that unmarried Girl is about Eight Years as it is believed that she represents the Devi. The ladies who sit for the puja represent all the women of the family who are no more alive. The function is presided over by the elderly lady members of the family. Usually the kartha is a sumangali from the family. The gifts to the ladies vary among families and depend on the financial status of the kartha, very similar to the nandi sradham. The menu for the feast is also very similar. 9 yds saree in silk or cotton is be bought along with a Blouse piece. The preferable colours are red, yellow and green. Invite and procedure. Those to be invited, kumkum, haldi, oil, shikakai, vasanai podi are to offered at thier Home a day earlier On the morning of the day, wash the 9 yds saree & a blouse piece with madi (shuddam)after bath & dry.

On Field Notes this week, we look outside India's shores, across the Palk Strait. Neighbouring Srilanka in recent months has been ravaged by food shortages. The crisis has been precipitated by a Gotabaya Rajapaksa-government decision that can charitably be called crackpot. In April this year, the country imposed a ban on the use of synthetic or chemical fertilisers. With the stroke of a pen, the government wants to make the Island nation of 22 million people and 1.8 million farming families into a fully organic food producing paradise. Instead, it threatens to turn the country into a basket case. Without fertilizers, farm output is tanking. Food prices have shot through the roof, tea exports have halved and farmers are on the streets protesting. Sri Lanka's crisis has great relevance for India. Here too, several state governments like Andhra plan to go completely organic in the next decade or so. Even the central government enthusiastically promotes ideas like zero budget natural farming. Justified fears around climate change and ecological damage has helped activists offer organic farming as the only alternative. TR Vivek speaks to Buddhi Marambe, a professor of agriculture in Peradeniya University in Sri Lanka for a Ground Zero view and possible lessons for India. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/business-line/message
The Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Act, 2020 has now been notified. The state government says that it will come into effect from January 15 next year. The law covers jobs where the monthly salary is less than Rs 30,000 and applies to private companies, societies, trusts and partnership firms in the state with 10 or more employees. At a time when attracting investments should be the highest priority for the government, the new legislation threatens to hurt the industry's freedom. This report explains what consequences the law may have Haryana has thriving tech, finance and automobile industries, where lakhs of migrant workers are employed. According to the 2018-19 Periodic Labour Force Survey, just 4.4%, that is, 15.6 million of the estimated workforce of 356 million in India had monthly incomes above Rs 30,000. The survey also says that only 10.7% of the salaried jobs in Haryana pay more than Rs 30,000 a month. Companies prefer to hire workers according to their capabilities, rather than their place of domicile. Although Haryana lowered the domicile stipulation from 15 years to 5 years for the new law, proving this will still be a hassle since it requires a residence certificate based on a voter ID, Aadhaar or a ration card. The law also seems to be against the spirit of the Constitution of India which guarantees the right to equality and the freedom to reside in any part of the country and practise any occupation. In Haryana, India's largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki has manufacturing facilities in Gurugram and Manesar and an R&D centre in Rohtak. This is what Maruti Chairman RC Bharagava told Business Standard: “Such restrictive policies are not at all welcome. However, due to our negotiations, the salary ceiling has come down. Almost all of our employees earn more than Rs 30,000. So, we are happy that the negotiations have shown some results.” But a myriad of auto component firms supply material to companies like Maruti Suzuki. And these companies will bear the brunt of the law. Industries feel it will not benefit the state and hit MSMEs that are just coming out of the crippling effects of the pandemic. We spoke with Sunjay Kapur, the chairman of auto component major Sona Comstar and president of the Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India. He voiced his discontent: New law can make us uncompetitive Govt should take a relook, specifically on technical jobs Need a better solution to create jobs in the state The way ahead for the smaller players Companies in the Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME) sector are planning to challenge the law in court. Meanwhile, the IT industry is evaluating relocation options in nearby Delhi and Noida for fresh growth since the policy applies only to new jobs. According to IT industry body NASSCOM, Haryana is home to about 500 companies in the IT and ITeS sector. A populist move Haryana not the first state to take the populist decision Jharkhand too passed a bill to provide 75% reservation for locals Andhra Pradesh too had reserved 75% of jobs in private sector for locals But, facing resistance, Andhra gave companies three years of exemption Haryana is not the first state to take the populist decision. In September this year, the Jharkhand Assembly passed a bill to provide 75% reservation for locals in the private sector with a salary up to Rs 40,000. It has not been notified yet. And in 2019, Andhra Pradesh reserved 75% of jobs in private industries and factories for locals. Although the law was notified more than two years ago, the state has gone slow in enforcing it. Finding sufficient local talent has been difficult for industries in the state. Haryana's new law hampers ease of doing business, reduces competitiveness and may discourage firms from expanding their businesses. The private sector now fears that more states could take a page out of Haryana's playbook.

A version of this essay was published by swarajyamag.com at https://swarajyamag.com/world/lessons-for-india-from-south-africa-beware-of-those-bearing-gifts. Please listen to the podcast (click the ‘play’ button above), and give me feedback. It takes a lot of work to put the podcast together, and I would like to hear what you guys think of it, and your suggestions on how it can be improved. As I write this, there are riots in South Africa over a court order to jail former President Jacob Zuma on corruption charges. It may escalate to a quasi-civil war. It was startling to hear that model-minority Indian-origin South Africans are facing threats to their lives and livelihoods, and that some of them are defending themselves with firearms. As a teenager I read several novels by the Afrikaner author Laurens van der Post about the days of apartheid, and I was struck by the trisanku nature of the Indians there: disrespected by both blacks and whites, living a tenuous and uncertain existence. We saw what happened to Indians in Idi Amin’s Uganda, and we saw how the Chettiars were ejected from Burma. A big reason for the assaults is the certainty that Indians are soft targets: that they do not fight back and they often have assets because they are diligent and save whatever they can. Indian businesses are being torched, and their very lives are in jeopardy.It is important to pay attention to this because India’s future is entwined with the Indian Ocean Rim, and with the fast-growing (at least till the pandemic struck) economies of that huge and relatively empty continent. The Chinese have made massive inroads there, but there is also a backlash. India needs to have an Africa strategy. India, meanwhile, merely gets second-hand information about Africa from the Anglosphere. This has to change. There are serious commercial opportunities. For example, Indian digitization and payment options may be attractive to African nations: UPI, RuPay, Aadhar, Cowin, India Stack etc., along with a bridge between UPI and Kenya’s mPESA. More to the point, there are lessons for us from the African encounter with the West. The net result has been the impoverishment and suffering of the African, including arbitrary lines drawn across the continent tearing apart traditional ethnic identities, leading to endless wars and displacement and ethnic cleansing. That must sound familiar to subcontinentals: the legacy of European empire.I shall confine myself to three examples: Rwanda, Ethiopia and South Sudan. RwandaThere are two ethnic groups in Rwanda, the ‘tall, fair’ Tutsis and the ‘short, dark’ Hutus. Well, that’s the theory, but to the impartial observer, they seem identical: they are very close genetically, and they had generally lived peacefully with each other for centuries. Christian missionaries arriving in Rwanda ‘discovered’ that the minority Tutsi were lording it over the Hutu. I don’t remember if they ‘discovered’ that the Tutsi were also migrants who had defeated and now oppressed the Hutus. In any case, under the missionaries, cleavages in society were manufactured or at least dramatically magnified. In the end, there was a horrific genocide. The Hutus attempted to wipe out the Tutsis, with the collusion of the church. If you get away from the gruesome killings, this might sound vaguely familiar to Indians: yes, it is the ‘Aryan’ Invasion Fairytale in a slightly different form. But the intent was the same: divide et impera. The goal was to maintain white control by fomenting fratricide and civil war.It was the late N S Rajaram who had the insight that what happened in Rwanda was the template for the ‘Aryan’-‘Dravidian’ divide that missionaries created in India. One Bishop Caldwell, and later, his ideological descendants such as EV Ramaswamy Naicker, created exactly the same kind of unscientific and unsubstantiated division between the allegedly ‘Aryan’ Tamil Brahmins and the allegedly ‘Dravidian’ middle castes.We have to assume that the intent in India was also (in addition to divide and rule) continuous fratricidal warfare, bhedam, and thus easy pickings for the imperialists. The funny thing is that Tamil Brahmins are genetically identical to the allegedly ‘Dravidian’ middle castes, but then, there is no reason to let science stand in the way of a good narrative. The fact that this whole thing didn’t lead to genocide in India, a la Rwanda, is miraculous, because it could easily have done so. Perhaps some vestige of civilizational tolerance meant only exile, not physical liquidation.In Rwanda, after the horrific genocide, Tutsis led by Robert Kagame, who had honed fighting skills in neighboring countries, came to power. They have maintained the peace, and led to some level of development, although there are murmurs about autocracy. Interestingly enough, a deep dive into Kagame’s Rwanda brings up a lot of not-so-flattering comparisons to everybody’s poster-child du jour, Bangladesh, but that’s a story for another time. EthiopiaThis is an ancient Christian country with roots going back to the days around the Council of Nicae, 325 CE, that codified Christian dogma. Some seafaring European adventurers who ended up in India were looking for the fabled lost kingdom of ‘Prester John’, supposedly the king of Ethiopia. That didn’t save the country from going through a brutal civil war in the 20th century. The province of Eritrea rebelled, and after a 20-year-long war, which took the lives of an estimated 100,000 people on both sides put together, Eritrea formally became a new nation. In the past year, another rebellion in the province of Tigray has become a serious military problem. It appears as though the Tigrayans, whose fighters had earlier allied with different factions in the Ethiopia-Eritrea war, are now on the verge of defeating combined Ethiopian and Eritrean forces, and are now threatening to take the war into neighboring states. Just like Yugoslavia a while ago, Ethiopia has fallen apart.Why is this relevant to India? Because the West is pushing for the balkanization of India, under the new and sexy name of “sub-national diplomacy”. Thanks to Abhinav Agarwal for pointing out the following article and a pithy quote from it: “Subnational diplomacy should be a crucial tool of Biden’s India strategy... "And, putting their money where their mouth is, Americans are following up by ‘canceling’ the word ‘India’. It is either ‘South Asia’ (which, to quote that war-criminal Churchill, is “about as tangible as the equator”), or it is sub-national. It appears the West is reaching out to West Bengal and also to Tamil Nadu (see the ecstasy with which they received the appointment of Esther Duflo and Jean Dreze to an economic affairs panel there).So it’s never “Indian-American”, but “Bengali-American”, or “South Asian American”, as far as US communiques are concerned. It took them 48 hours, and a lot of noise on social media, to issue a half-hearted retraction to the following. The funny thing is that Samir Banerjee’s father is not even Bengali, he’s Assamese! But hey, anything in the cause of bhedam. Chanakya, I am sure, would approve. Creating divisions where they don’t exist: now where have we seen this before?South SudanThis country was created exactly ten years ago, as a refuge for Christians who, it seems, were being oppressed by North Sudan’s Muslim majority. That is also a story we have heard elsewhere: partition on ideological or especially on religious grounds, courtesy the West. East Timor, for instance. Intriguingly, though, when a European country was divided (Germany) it was quickly reunited. I doubt the same will be true for other countries divided by the West. In 2011, there were hopeful predictions about an egalitarian and prosperous South Sudan, especially because it has oil. But the reality is far from it: the country is desperately poor, and there are accusations of gross human rights violations and oppression based on ethnicity. Child marriage is rife, child soldiers are common, and rape is used widely as a war tactic.The creation of South Sudan has not led to any great improvement in the lives of the people.Of the various ‘splittist’ (to use Chinese vocabulary for a minute) groups in India, the most virulent are the ‘Dravidian’ parties of Tamil Nadu, which nurse fond hopes for something they call ‘United States of South India’. India has also seen that widespread Christian conversion leads to secession and demands for separate homelands: as in much of the Northeast. As conversion increases in Andhra, Telangana and Tamil Nadu (there are already substantial numbers in Kerala), the urge to secede will likely increase. South Sudan’s case is salutary: creating a new nation based on religion is not exactly the most sensible course of action. Fortunately, in India’s case, apart from a few hard-core Tamils, most people in South India have no particular interest in anything ‘Dravidian’. But the ‘subnational diplomacy’ specialists from the Biden administration will likely create trouble. As an example, the closure of the Sterlite copper plant -- precisely when copper prices and demand are set to go through the roof -- must rank as one of the most brain-dead, malicious acts of recent times. It is quite likely that the famed sub-national diplomacy spoken of by CSIS is being applied to the cause of ‘Dravida Nadu’. In this, there will be other eager partners: Pakistan, China and various busybodies such as the Scandinavians who like to fish in troubled waters.African LessonsInterestingly, I have been seeing at least on social media that ordinary Africans are far more cognizant of the malfeasance of ex-colonials than Indians are. Their leaders are aware, too. Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia, who died recently, was one. So was whoever it is who said, pithily, “When the missionaries came, they had the book and we had the land. They taught us to pray with our eyes closed. When we opened our eyes, they had the land, and we had the book”. Indians, and our leaders, are still bedazzled, and mouth platitudes such as vasudhaiva kutumbakam and athithi devo bhava out of context. It is time we learned something from the Africans. 1600 words, 14 Jul 2021 This is a public episode.

This episode of BIC Talks remembers an individual who has been described as “the conscience of the collective self known as Andhra society”. Arvind Narrain in a conversation with Aishwarya Ravikumar provides a primer and an insight into the inner workings of a profound and rare mind of clarity and action, as we mark his birth anniversary on the 10th of June. K Balagopal (1952-2009) was a trained Mathematician who became one of the country's most important human rights activists. He was initially with the Andhra Pradesh Civil Liberties Committee and then went on to found the Human Rights Forum. As an inspirational part of these human rights organisations he travelled the length and breadth of the land from Kashmir in the North to Orissa and the North East, Gujarat and of course his own home state, the then Andhra Pradesh, producing an astonishing series of Fact Finding Reports which documented and analysed human rights violations. He also wrote extensively in the Economic and Political Weekly and was an insightful commentor on Indian political and legal developments right from Gujarat 2002, the rise of the Naxalites to the politics of Mandal. His writings and speeches have been archived at www.balagopal.org. Arvind Narrain is a lawyer and writer based in Bangalore. Aishwarya Ravikumar has worked in different contexts to make short documentary films and learn about governance and community perspectives on land & forest rights, right to employment, fair wages and information and food sovereignty.

The Shiva Cult in the south oh Vindhya Mountains,Dravida Desa preceded Shiva worship in the Vedic period. 1 Shiva is hardly mentioned by name in the Vedas,although He is mentioned in Sreerudram as ”nama Sivaayaca, Sivadharaayaca' 2.Shiva is mentioned copiously in all the ancient Tamil Classics. 3.While Shiva legends of the North deal only with his marriage with Uma,Sati's death , the subsequent Unmatha of Shiva and the scattering of Devi's body ,which are worshiped as 108 Shakti Peetas. 3.Though Daksha's Yagnya,his fight with Shiva is referred to in the North Indian Traditions,more details of this incident is found in the literature of South. 4.Daksha, to avoid Shiva's wrath,hid in Antarctica. 5.Daksha Yagnya Temple is in Kerala. Shiva is praised as A Hunter,Kirata,in Srirudram. 7.Kirata Shiva Temple is in Kerala. 8.Arjuna fought with Shiva in the south to obtain Pasupathastra. 9.Parashurama,an Avatar of Vishnu worshiped Shiva in South. 10.Karna studied under Parashurama in the South. 11.The earliest mountain temple of Shiva,Thiruvannamalai is in Tamil Nadu. 12.Jwalapuram,Cuddapah district,Andhra,Nataraja Temple is 72,000 years old. 13.Thiruvannamalai,Tamil Nadu is dated at 3.94 Billion years. 14.Temple where Shiva drank the Halakala poison is in Suruttupalli,border between Andhra(is it Telengana now?). 15.One Tamil king built 108 Shiva temples on the banks of River Kaveri,starting from Srirangapatna near Mysore,Karnataka to Thiruvanaikkaval,Tamil Nadu. 16.Some of these kings date back to Ramayana period,Perunchotru Udiyan Nedun Cheralaathan being one,Kochchenganaan,the other.And there are many more. 17.Shiva,as Chokkanatha,married Devi Meenakshi at Madurai. 18.Meenakshi's father Malayathdwaja Pandya fought on the side of Pandavas during Mahabhartha Battle. 19.Shiva's temples in all His aspects,Satyojaatham,Tatpurusham,Eesaanam,Vamadevam and Agoram are found in the south. 20.Shiva founded the Tamil language. 21.Sage Agastya,who is a link between north and south settled down in Podhigai range,Tamil Nadu. 22. Shiva,Agastya and Valmiki,who wrote Ramayana were Siddhas,Realized souls,Shiva being the First,Adi Yogi. 23.Satyavrata Manu was a king of Dravida desa. 24.Rama's ancestor Sivi/Sibi built a temple for Vishnu as Punadarikaksha at Thiruvellarai near Sri Rangam 25. Tamil Chola kings belong to Ikshvaku dynasty. 26.The Yoga system of the Siddhas of south is based on Vaasi yoga and Patanjali's Yoga Sutra came later and it is a tool to practice Vaasi Yoga(please read my article on Vaasi Yoga) I have written detailed article on each of the points mentioned in this article. You may find them under Hinduism Category or Google search term ramanan50. So it appears that Shiva and His people/tribe were distributed throughout India. They were also present throughout the world. With the available evidence now,Shiva tribes seem to have been in Kabul, Near Chittore,Rajasthan, Near Yamuna river and near River Kaveri I may add that the ancient landmass was different from what it is now and places mentioned in South India were a part of Lemuria,others in Ikshvaku And Uighur Kingdoms. ‘It appears likely that the Sivis originally lived in north of river Kabol in remote antiquity, from where sections of them moved southwards in later times and settled in what is called Seva around Bolan Pass, which region was known as Sivistan till recently. Pāṇini also mentions a place called Sivapura which he includes in the Udichya (northern) division of Ancient India and which is identified by some scholars with Sibipura of the Shorkot Inscriptions edited by Vogel. The southerly movement of the Sivis is also evidenced from their other settlement called Usinara near Yamuna, ruled by Sivi king called Usinara. Sivis also are attested to have one settlement in Sind, another one in Madhyamika (Tambavati Nagri) near https://ramanisblog.in/2017/03/04/shiva-tribes-in-kabul-to-kaveri/ --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ramanispodcast/message
