Rigveda is the oldest anthology and religious book in the world. Herman Jacobi of Germany and Bala Gangadhar Tilak of India dated the book around 4000 BCE based on astronomical data in the Rigveda. It has got more than 20 women poets and stands unique in the world. Ancient languages like Hebrew, Greek, Latin, Persian, Chinese , Egyptian and Sumerian have got a few poetesses only, that too  later than the Rigveda. Tamil, which is the junior most among the ancient languages have got over 25 poetesses but several thousand years after the Rig Veda. Tamil is the youngest language in the group of classical languages. Tamil poetesses belong to first three centuries of common era CE.

The so-called scholars who are part of anti Hindu Marxist gang or anti Hindu Max Muller gang argue that the Vedic Hindus were immigrants from a cold region. Those half baked, jaundiced eyed, twisted angled, cross eyed fellows did not agree on the period of the immigration or the region from where they emigrated. This itself exposes their hollow and shallow hypothesis.

Hindus are the only people who use water from birth to death in all rites and religious ceremonies. Had they migrated from a cold area like central Asia or Siberia they wouldn’t even touch water like our modern brothers in the West. My white friends in London rarely take daily shower. But they wouldn’t smell like us. They never sweat like us, Hindus, because they are genetically designed that way. These gangs have been lying about Soma Juice as well. None of the gang members lived as a Hindu , practised as a Hindu or believed like a Hindu. They were pukka anti Hindu and never said a single word about other religions. This also shows their true colours.

A poem in the Rig Veda in the name of Rishi Apaalaa is very interesting and it shows that the Vedic Hindus were great farmers. This woman Apala prays to Indra to cure her skin disease, to give good hair growth in her father’s bald head and a fertile growth in their farms.

There is some unknown ritual as getting one through the three knaves of a chariot. None of the idiots in the West agree on what it is. She says that she found the valuable Soma plant near a stream while walking. She adds she would crush it with her teeth and give it to Indra. There are over 1000 references to Soma juice in the Veda. They used it thrice a day in the fire sacrifices. The first was in the early morning before sunrise. No westerner gets up that early, leave alone going to shower.

This woman is cured of skin disease after finding this herb.

The woman brings out some valiant information in her poem.

What do we know from this poem?

1.Soma cures even skin disease

2.Herself and her father were suffering from some rare skin disease and both of them lost hair in their body.

3. Through her prayer and use of Soma herb, both of them were cured.

4. And the most interesting point is she prayed for a fertile growth in her father’s field. This shows that they were farming. A lot of references on agriculture and agricultural machinery or equipment’s are available in the Rig Veda. Since it is a religious book and not a book on Botany or Agriculture we get them as passing remarks. One must read the Veda with a farmer’s eyes.

5.Soma plant is associated with falcon, hawk and eagle in several hymns ,at least in ten hymns. The seers/rishis say Soma was brought by falcon. None gave a satisfactory explanation for this. But they say they have identified the plant!!!!! A big joke!

6.Poetess Apala found this herb near a stream, probably she lived in a mountain. Rig Veda sings about 99 rivers, hills and unknown rivers and unidentified lakes. Vedic Hindus lived in a vast region between Afgahnistan and Delhi on the banks of Yamuna. In one and the same verse they mentioned Yamuna and far west Parusni river.

7.So finding Soma plant near a stream just like that by a woman raises interesting issues.

8.Interesting comparisons

Lot of people wrote that Bhakti movement was a very late one. Though Bhagavad Gita has Karma, Bhakti, Gnana yogas, Rigveda has got more references to Bhatkti. Like the Ramayana fame Forest tribal woman Miss Sabari who tasted every berry fruit before giving  it to Rama and Rama happily accepted it. This poetess Apala used her teeth to extract Soma juice and offered it to Indra. Indra accepted it. Sabari, probably followed Apala.

Another interesting comparison between the Tamil poetess Andal and Apala is the patriotism. Andal who lived 1400 years ago in Tamil Nadu, India also prays for abundant milk and fertile lands. In her third verse in Tiruppavai, she prays for Three Rains a Month ( it is a Hindu phrase to show the prosperity of land) and water stagnant fields with greeneries.

Apala could have stopped praying for herself. But she prayed for her father as well . Throughout the Rig Veda we see close knit family relationship. They always use similes like a lover rushing to her lady love or vice versa , child getting warmth from the clothes of father or mother, or son inheriting the father’s property.

Apala did not stop with her family. She wants prosperity to the country as well. Her patriotism makes her to sing for the prosperity of the green fields as well.

This poem has a single reference to growth of hair below her waist. This gave much fuel to sex maniacs in the West. Even if they find a single word about sex in the Hindu literature, they write doctoral thesis and publish a book. So much sex starved maniacs. Every house has got two important parts- one kitchen and another toilet. The non believers, the non practitioners, the anti Hindu Marxist, Max muller gangs are interested only in the toilets and not in the kitchen!


Here is Apala’s poem RV 8-91

1. DOWN to the stream a maiden came, and found the Soma by the way.

     Bearing it to her home she said, For Indra will I press thee out, for Sakra will I press thee out.

2. Thou roaming yonder, little man, beholding every house in turn,

     Drink thou this Soma pressed with teeth, accompanied with grain and curds, with cake of meal and song of praise.

3. Fain would we learn to know thee well, nor yet can we attain to thee.

     Still slowly and in gradual drops, O Indu, unto Indra flow.

4. Will he not help and work for us? Will he not make us wealthier?

     Shall we not, hostile to our lord, unite ourselves to Indra now?

5. O Indra, cause to sprout again three places, these which I declare,-

     My father’s head, his cultured field, and this the part below my waist.

6. Make all of these grow crops of hair, you cultivated field of ours,

     My body, and my father’s head.

7. Cleansing Apala, Indra! thrice, thou gavest sunlike skin to her,

     Drawn, Satakratu! through the hole of car, of wagon, and of yoke.

In some books, RV 8-91 is given as 8-80 because of 11 Valakhilya hymns.
