Let us now look at the importance of the three references to River Yamuna in the Rig Veda:

The reference to river Yamuna links it with the most famous war in the Vedas. It is called Dasa Rajna Yuddha (War of Ten Kings)

On 1 June 2015, I wrote:-

Now let us look at the details of the Ten Kings War.

The Dasarajna or the Battle of the Ten Kings, is an important historical event alluded to in various hymns of the Rig Veda.

Sudas was the king of Bharata Kingdom. He belonged to Trstu family. At first Visvamitra was their priest. He led him to victorious campaigns on the banks of Vipas and Sutudri. Later there was some misunderstanding and Vasistha was appointed as the priest and Visvamitra was sacked. Thereupon a long and bitter rivalry ensued between the two priests and, in revenge, Visvamitra led ten kings against the Bharata kingdom.

The ten kings were from the kingdoms of Puru, Yadu, Turvasa, Anu and Drhyu, Alina, Paktha, Bhalanas, Siva and Visvanin. In the bloody and decisive battle on the banks of River Parusni, the Bharats emerged victorious, utterly routing the ten kings. The kings of Anu and Druhyu kingdoms were drowned, while Purukutsa, King of the Puru Kingdom met his death.

There was another battle in which Sudas fought with Ajas, Sigrus and Yaksus who had united under King Bheda; but these new assailants also met the same fate and were defeated, being slaughtered on the River Jamuna.

By the time of this war, the Vedic Hindus covered a vast territory, from the banks of Jamuna in the east to Iran in in the west. In modern terms it covers the North India ,Pakistan ,Afghanistan and Iran! The earliest part of the Rig Veda sings about Ganges. So the ten people can’t be tribal chiefs. When it comes to Chera, Choza and Pandyas of Tamil kingdoms we don’t dub them as tribal chiefs. There were umpteen tribals and chieftains, but yet these three were called kingdoms. In the same way all the ten names gave big dynasties in India. Even Morton Smith’ conservative estimate gives a long list of Yadava (Yadu) kings from 1800 BCE and Puru Kings from 1800 BCE.


Shrikant G Talageri comments on this war :

Through logical argument Shrikant G Talageri has shown that the Vedic Hindus marched from East to the West. All our epics and mythologies are also confirming it. We know the exact location of Ayodhya of Ramayana, Brindhavan of Bhagavata Purana and the Indraprastha/Delhi of Mahabharata . all these places are in the East. Now we know that Kasi/Benares/Varanasi is the oldest city in the world. Because of two Monsoons and Changing river systems we don’t have much archaeological proofs. The oldest parts of the Rig Veda contain references to Ganges and Yamuna (also called Jamuna). Both these are in Sangam Tamil literature too. That means the name and fame of these rivers were known to people in the southern most part of India. Geographically speaking, it overs a vast area, which is the largest country at that time.


Max Mullers and Marxists Torn to pieces

The gangs which dubbed Vedic Hindus as nomads are torn to pieces by these references. Vedas refer to several kings, kingdoms and patriotic feelings of the Hindus. Bhagawan Singh in his book ‘The Vedic Harappans’ puts forth a beautiful argument:

“More than the names of the rivers , emotional attachment to a wide area is indicative of a national and cultural unity not to be found among people who are not highly advanced.  The passion with which the poet (RV.10-75-5) sings,

‘Favour this my land, O Ganga, O Yamuna, O Sutudri , O Parusni, O Askini, O Vitasta, O Marudvratha, O Arjikiya with Susoma, hear my call…………. Is by itself a proof of a cultural unity across the state boundaries. Another significant feature of the list of rivers, in their order from the East to West beginning from Ganges, in accordance with the course of Aila expansion and its outflow beyond northwest (Mookerji, 1957)

Has a nomadic or semi agricultural community ever emotionally associated itself with such a vast area stretching over a thousand kilometres? Could such a consciousness emerge without political and cultural unity? Has people with its roots somewhere else, even after the occupation of a country, ever attached so passionately and reverently with rivers and mountains in newfound land? No one took care to ask these questions, as the answers could be counterproductive. The geographical area mentioned in RV 10-75 broadly covers the entire Harappan area from East to West. (Now there are over 1500 Harappan Civilization sites up to Delhi)”.


My comments

Max Muller gang and Marxists gang treated Hindus as idiots and wrote and commented according to their whims and fancies. What we must take into account is

Neither of them believed in Hindu religion nor United India. Their loyalty lied elsewhere.

Neither of them took the Puranic list of kings as historical. They started Indian History from Buddha Period (Sixth Century BCE). They believed in the list of Kings in Sumer and Egypt, but not India.

Those idiots say that India did not have anyone ruling before Buddha. That means from 2500 BCE Indus Valley Civilization up to Buddha , India had no kings!!!!!

Neither of them practised Hinduism. They never believed in Re birth, Karma Theory or Miracles listed in Hindu Buddhist, Jain and Sikh Scriptures.

They never accepted our calculation of Time,

Above all, these gangs ignored all the references to Agriculture in the Vedas. There is a beautiful poem about Gambling in the Rig Veda. Even the addicted gambler in his monologue says,

Play not with dice; No! Cultivate your land; enjoy the gain (harvest) and deem that wealth sufficient ( RV.10-34-13)

There are scores of references to agriculture, through it is a religious book!

Even if one doesn’t believe in Hindus’ march towards west, one cannot ignore the vast area mentioned from Yamuna to Iran and the patriotic fervour of Vedic Hindus towards their country.

Last but not the least, the idiots who translated the Vedas could not even identify several lakes and rivers. They could not even agree among themselves whether they are lake names or river names or names of insects or food!!!! Big jokers give us a lot of jokes in their commentaries.

We must reject all the arguments of those gangs and start afresh.

“Long Live the Vedas; Beat the Drum saying this; Let there be victory in all the Eight Directions”— Tamil Poet Bharati


RV 5-52-17

17. The mighty ones, the seven times seven, have singly given me hundred gifts.

     I have obtained on Yamuna famed wealth in kine and wealth in steeds.

RV 7-18-19

19. Yamuna and the Trtsus aided Indra. There he stripped Bheda bare of all his treasures.

     The Ajas and the Sigrus and the Yaksus brought in to him as tribute heads of horses.

RV 10-75-5

5. Favour ye this my laud, O Ganga, Yamuna, O Sutudri, Parusni and Sarasvati:

     With Asikni, Vitasta, O Marudvrdha, O Arjikiya with Susoma hear my call.
