Indology

Indology is the academic study of the history and cultures, languages, and literature of the Indian subcontinent (most specifically the modern-day states of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal), and as such is a subset of Asian studies. Indology may also be known as Indic studies or Indian studies, or South Asian studies, although scholars and university administrators sometimes have only partially overlapping interpretations of these terms

Here I publish with the intention of revealing the civilizational continuum of India under what i like to call – ” the Holistic Ancient Indian Knowledge Tradition” (HAIK) tradition. As a student of Indology, I believe that  a special Holistic approach to etymology is required to do justice to the study of longest surviving culture in History

Unlike Egyptology or study of any other ancient civilization  which deal with dead and extinct cultures. Indology studies a culture, a civilization, a heritage that is so dynamically alive that it has not only survived but spawned several sub-cultures and sub-societies by assimilations various components of Human Endeavour

My attempt here shall be unravel the process of such cultural assimilation as to present a clear idea of  India, India-ness and Indology to students as well as scholars of this vast and timeless isntitution
