Lord Rama’s name is found in all ancient literature in the world. A deep study shows how the name has been changed, corrupted and mispronounced during the past 2000 years. We all know how the Ramayana characters are spelt in Ramkien of South East Asia. It is easy to identify them because it is a living culture. Ramayana sculptures, dramas, theatres, stamps and names of people are available there . So we know who is who. But in Sumeria (southern Iraq) and Egypt (in Africa) many names were corrupted beyond recognition.

So, I like Isaac Newton formed a new law. You may call it ‘Swamintha Newton’s fourth Law of Motion’.

“Longer the distance a name goes, more corrupted it becomes” is the law I made.

My friends in Malaysia write Tamayanti instead of Damayanthi, Puvana in Mauritius in stead of Bhuvana, Tenuka in Sri Lanka in stead of Dhenuka, Souupramoniam instead of Subrahmanyam in Paris or French ruled Indian territory of Pondichery. There are various reasons for this, which is not going to be a part of this essay.

Rama’s name is changed to Rim in Sumerian.

Bharata’s name is changed to Varad in Sumerian.

Most of us know that B=V.

Bengal is Vanga in Tamil and Sanskrit.

But the change is natural. Even 2000 year old Sangam Tamil literature has Bandi/cart instead of Vandi/cart. Paninian Grammar also shows several place names with B/V change.

There was a very good article titled RAMA, THE GREAT KING OF SUMER, ELAM AND INDUS by Ranajit Pal (published in Sunday Statesman in 1992). I am commenting on it with my additional inputs in this article.

The biggest blunder the author committed was that he interpreted everything as Middle Eastern and Rama  or his story migrated to India.

And another drawback is he missed Mitannian names and Egyptian names.

First let me give the names given by him (Ranajit Pal)-

Arya – Ram- anna = ancestor of Darius I of Pre Islamic Iran

Ram Yast= Zoroastrian Calendar= Ram and Vayu= Rama and Hanuman/Vayu Kumara

Ram Bzrang = A Kurdish Tribe in Fars.

Ram -names, Ram-ardashir, Ram-hormuzd, Ram-peroz, Rema, Ruma gam= Sasanian Cities.

Ram – sahristan = famed capital of the Surens

Ram- alla= two towns in Palestne and on the banks of Euphrates River.


Sumerian King List

Ram Sin from Elam- ruled for 60 years

Bharat /warad Sin – ruled for  12 years (1834-1822 BC

Dasaratha Jataka also said Rama ruled years sixty times hundred and ten thousand more.

Agade = capital of Sargon = Ayodhya.

Ram -Ravana Yuddha – 1794  BC

Raghupati Rama = Laghumal


Ragupati Rama in the Bible

At that time Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar/Larsa, Kedorlaomer king of Elam and Tidal, king of Goyim went to war against Bera king of Sodom, Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, Shmeber king of Zeboiim and the king of Bea (tha is Zoar)

Amraphel is Hammurabi-ilu according to many scholars.

Babaylonian Legends

Kudur- laghumal= above mentioned Kedorlaomer king of Elam.

Two tablets mention Eri Aku, son of Durmah-ilani= Dharma

Tudhula= above mentioned Tidal


Durmah -ilani= Dasaratha , father of Rama

Buddha and Babylonia

Kudur Mabuk = a tribal Shaikh

Gotama Buddha was a Sakya (shaikh)

Gotama was called Bhagava= corresponds to Baghapa of Babylonia

Mabuk-= Maha bhaga

Dasaratha might have controlled ten territories; that is why ten chariots in his name


Ram chapel was excavated by Sir Leonard Woolley.

This may be in memory of Ram sin of Larsa.

Joan oates has published Ram chapel picture in Babylon (page 77)


Sita in Sumeria and  Rig Veda

The Rig Veda (xvii) refers to an Asura named Rama

RV refers to Sita 4-57-6 (auspicious Sita, come thou near, we venerate and worship you.

Warad sin’s was consecrated as high priestess of the Moon God (sin) at Ur under the name Enanedu

The first known chief priestess was Hedu- ann, sister of Rimush.

There survives a number of hymns composed by her in fluent Sumerian which makes her first literary figure of history.

1500 years after her demise, King Nabonindus recorded how he searched for and recovered her memorial.


Rock cut relief at Kurangun

A god sits on a throne formed by the coils of a serpent  which he holds by the neck. He also holds a vessel from which two streams of water flow. One strem forms a canopy over the god and goddessbehind him and is probably caught. In a vessel held by an attendant.

Throne formed by the coils of serpent reminds us of Hanuman seated on a coil of his tail.

Pig tailed igures in the relief may be Vanaras (Amorites)


Mohenjadao= Maha Anga Dvara

During Elamite rule Kurangan was  a dual capital with Susa

Ram -Sin (Rama Chndran) ws an Eamite king

Sasanian city Ram sahriastan may be Surya sthana


Vali and Kishkinda

In Sumerian myth Bali, son of Etanah, ruled Kish for 400 years.

It may be Ramayana Kishki nda

Ilu -Ma- Ilu , the Hanuman of the epic

Cuneiform symbol for ilu can also be read AN

So  Joan Oates read it as Illiman ; it may be Hanuman


Ravana was the great maw maker Hammurabi, son of Mubalit

If ram sin is identified with Rama then his enemy must be Hammurabi= Ravana= Ravi-anna

The battle between Khammu Ravi and Ram Sin who led a group of Ten Kings was one of the most famous events of Sumerian History

Sin Mubalit was Hammurabi’s father. It links him with Mahabali.

Great Assyriologist C J Gadd termed Ram-Sin’s rule as the Golden Age of Sumer.


Badar e Lengeh in Persin Gulf = Setu Bandanam

Hetumant  (in the Helmand) = Setu band

Dandanakan near Merv= Dandaka vana

According to E A Speiser, many Sumerian city names were echoes of the earlier cities in Elam

Thus Larsa was an echo of Lar in the Gulf area; :ar was once the name of Gujarat


Rama in Indus Seals

The bow man symbol in Indus seals may be Rama

Rama was an Indo Aryan or Indo Iranian.

The presence of Indo-Aryans in Sumer in the early second millennium BC disproves some of the old assumptions about the arrival of the Indo nIranians in the Middle East.



1.Author has collected lot f information regarding Rama and Sita

But he imagined that Iran and Iraq were the original place of Rama and Dasaratha. If we look at it in the revere , all will fall in its place perfectly. In his argument we see many chronological aberrations. If you say that Ramayana story travelled from the India to Iraq (Sumer) and Iran, the picture changes.

2.Author has assumed all the above mentioned characters were original characters in Ramayana. It is wrong. Because of the fame of Rama and Sita, they copied the names. This we see in modern history as well. Those who travelled from Tamil Nadu named several places after their native places in  Tamil Nadu. Those who went to Australia, Canada and America and South Africa named those places after their native places by simply adding New (south wales, England etc)

3.This is proved by Tushratta, Pratardhana etc in Mitannin around 1400 BCE

4. There were 14 Ramses kings in Egypt. They may be Rama sesha/snake or Ramesha/Siva with snake

5. We have to look at other aspects in Sumer (which I have already listed in my old articles)

We can easily see the direction of migration. The longer you go rituals get diluted or disappear. The longer you travel names get distorted. Myself living in Britain for over 30 years see all the rituals get abridged or diluted. Sri Lankan names were distorted beyond recognition. Some became awkward. This is what we see in Sumer/Iraq and Iran.

6.From Mekong river in South East Asia to Congo river in Central Africa we see the name of Holy Ganga. River Volga (Udaka), Caspian Sea (Kasyapa rishi), Adriatic sea (Atri Maharishi) Singapore (Srngapuri) Laos (Lava kusa), all places ending with Apad (janapada) Gham (grama), Stan (stan) are of Hindu origin. They are all Sanskrit words. That is why WE HAVE ONLY ONE LANGUAGE IN THE WORLD WITHOUT A RACE OR COMMUNITY ATTACHED TO IT. Greek, Latin, Chinese, Hebrew, Tamil and Persian are all named after the places or the people who spoke it. Sanskrit was the common language of the world. Even its original name is Basha/language! No name except ‘language’, because that was the original Vak/word humans spoke!

7.It will be interesting to compare the Dasarajna Yuddh / Ten Kinggs of Rig Veda and Kings in Genesis of Bible. Other Sumrian Sanskrit names are given in my article. Also needed urgently is to the see the similarities in the flood story and how Dravidian King Sathyavratan ruled during the Great Floods. Sambandar’s Thevaram also confirms it.

8. Last but not the least, Kanchi Paramacharya (1894-1994) has pointed out in his 1932 Mylapore speeches, that Adam and Eve Story is a copy of Upanishad story of two birds sitting on a tree, one eating the fruit and the other not. Adam/Atma and Eve/Jivatma is made clear in this story.

There are books saying that there were six Avvaiyars in Tamil literature, many Agastyas from Rig Veda to Indonesia and many Ravanas as well. Ravana who was defeated by Karta Veerya Arjuna was not the one in Ramayana. Ravana who lifted the Kailash is not the one who abducted Sita Devi. Kanhi Paramacharya (1894-1994) has also pointed out that Indra is not single person. Foreigners translated all our scriptures wrong and caused immense damage to our history. We must sit to gether and rewrie history ASAP.

Mystery of Horse: Sudden Appearance from Egypt to India! (Post No.3181)


Written by London swaminathan

Date: 23 September 2016

Time uploaded in London: 15-30

Post No.3181

Pictures are taken from various sources; thanks.


Rig Veda, the oldest book in the world, contains references to horse, horse race, chariots and riding in almost all the ten Mandalas. No other literature in the world has so many references to horses. May be Zend Avesta which came after Rig Veda has some references. We know Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey came nearly 1000 years after the Rig Veda.


A research paper submitted on the basis of fossils discovered in Western India in 2014 showed that the ancient relatives of horses originated in India.

“Working at the edge of a coal mine in India, a team of Johns Hopkins researchers and colleagues have filled in a major gap in science’s understanding of the evolution of a group of animals that includes horses and rhinos. That group likely originated on the subcontinent when it was still an island headed swiftly for collision with Asia, the researchers report today in the online journal Nature Communications. It happened more than fifty million years ago. (20 November 2014 newspaper report)


Though there is a very big gap in time between the Rig Veda and the fossils, the fossil discovery shows that horses are not new to this region. Actually a great mystery lies in the fact that horses appeared suddenly in Egypt, Middle East and India at the “same time”. But latest hydrological research in the Sarasvati basin shows that Rig Veda was “composed” or “heard” by the seers before 1900 BCE. The precession of the earth and the stars mentioned in the Vedic literature shows that Rig Veda must have been composed or heard before 3000 BCE. This means that the horses were exported from India to other parts of the world.


Is there any other proof to support this hypotheses? Yes, we have archaeological proof from the Hittite empire. They were trained in Sanskrit!

Mitannian kings had Sanskrit names found in Ramayana and Vishnu sahasranama such as Dasarata, Pratardana. But being distant from the place of origin they had corrupted spellings like Tushratta. We see such trends in Mauritius, Sri Lanka and Malaysia where the migrated Tamils write Turka instead of Durga, Tamayanti instead of Damayanti, Murder mootoo instead of Marudamuthu.


We also find the Sanskrit word asva/horse in their names: Biridaswa (Brhad Asva) possessing great horses, sattasva (Sapta+ Asva), possessing or winning seven horses.


Zend Avesta, holy book of Zoroastrians, also has names such as Drvaspa ( agoddess)- she who keeps horses in good health, Vistaspa ( a king of Bactria), son of Aurvat aspa, Pourus aspa, father of Zarathustra, he who possess many horses, Arbataspa master of war like hoses, Huaspa- having good horses.

Aspa= Asva= Hrasva= Horse

Kikkuli of Mitanni was the one who taught them to use war horses. His horse training manual is in Sanskrit:

Wartanna = vartana = a turn

Akika = Eka = one turn

Tera = tri = three turns

Panza = pancha = five turns

Nava artanna = nava = nine turns.

Foreigners looking at the colloquial form of Sanskrit thought that it was Proto Sanskrit. It is actually the localised Sanskrit. Even today Sanskrit words are Tamilized in Tamil Nadu and the ancient Tamil Grammar book has rules for it. Without understanding this, they thought it was a different language.


There is another proof also. The Bogaizkoy inscription mentioned the Vedic Gods in the same order as Rig Veda. When two kings signed an agreement they sealed their agreement with the Vedic mantra. All the scholars who studied Vedas agree that the Vedas originated on Indian soil. This shows that  the Hindu scriptures have spread to Turkey-Syria border around 1400 BCE!

We see horses at the same time from Egypt to India


With the archaeological and linguistics evidence, now it is confirmed that the Hindus went from India to give training in horses. There are more proofs in the Rig Veda:-

The horse was called asva, atya (runner), arvant (swift), strong for pulling (vaajin), the runner (sapti). Mare was called with four different names. Different colours of horses are also described. A white horse with black ears is mentioned in the Athrva Vedas as of special value. Horses were highly prized. Gifts of 400 horse are mentioned. Horses were decorated with pearls and gold. Horses from Indus and Sarasvati were praised high.   Kings had names as Asvapati etc. chariots, races and Asvamedha Yajna are mentioned.

All these show that the technic of raising horses originated in India.

Now that we know the Rig Veda is dated between 1900 BCE and 3000 BCE following dates are better understood:–

Hittite empire, a city rebelling against King Anittas in 1750 BCE, fielded 40 Chariots; Hattusilis I (sathyaseela)  (1650 BCE) fielded 80 chariots at the siege of Urshu; by the Battle of Kadesh (1285 BCE) Hattusas fielded 2500 chariots under Muwattalis II (1306 BCE)



The Hyksos (Hindu Yakshas)

Egypt used ‘equus asinus’ first for carrying burdens and then ‘equus caballus’. Asiatic Hyksos captured power in Nile delta in 1750 BCE. They were the one who brought horses from India to Egypt they are shown in chariots.


We see horses in a plaque of Tuthmose III (1479 BCE). Later we see more horses. So around 1400 BCE it is seen on a large area frm Egypt to Plains of Ganges. How was it possible where there was no modern transport like today. It was possible only because India sent trainers like Kikkuli to all the countries


Science of Horses

Mitochondrial DNA tests conducted on over 600 horses from 25 breeds world wide prove that at least 17 genetic groups are involved; that horses originally from diverse locations; and there were at least six locations in which horses were domesticated. At present no direct glimse of how the first horse was domesticated (Daily telegraph, 14-8-2002)


Domesticated horse was present in Mesopotamia from 2500 BCE. Horse remains found in Syria are dated 2400 BCE. Syria and Turkey were under Vedic Kings from very early times under Kassites, Hittites and Mitanni. Standard of Ur depicts five four wheeled wagons with four equids apiece. Mesopotamian horse artefacts are dated between 2800-2500 BCE. Sice the Vedas are dated before this date by astronomical refrences, we may assume that domesticated horses went for India to other countries.


The horse appears in a Sumerian text ‘The Curse of Agade” where the Goddess Inanna of Agade, capital of Sumer, sought to bring harmony to men and nimals, among them the ass of the mountains Anse Kur ra – the horse (2000 BCE)


There are proverbs about horses in Sumerian texts :

You sweat like a horse (it is) what you have drunk

If my burden is always  to be this, I shall become weak (horse says)


Domestic horse remains are recovered from south west Iran. They are from the Kaftari era (2100-1800 BCE)


Biblical reference

Genesis 47:16 has reference to horses. Canaanites had come requesting food from Egypt; this was granted ‘in exchange for their horses, their sheep and goats, their cattle and donkeys’.

Mari used chariotry in war, and also the donkey mounted couriers. From mari comes the earliest personal record of horse riding. King Zimri Lim was advised to take the safer option of riding a mule, or in a chariot, rather than risk riding horses.


The scarcity of horses at this time is shown by the value of a single animal:

A horse is worth 30 times that of a slave

Or 500 sheep

Or 5 minas of silver (2-4 Kilos)

From the above facts  we can prove that the Rig Veda is the first source of horses provided the date 3000 BCE is accepted.



At Jaggayyapeta, India is a relief where the horse is depicted as a symbol of the world ruler- Chakravarti.


The horse sacrifice also appears in Zend Avesta , albeit in religious fiction, when 100 male horses, 1000 oxen, 10,000 lambs are offered to Ardvi sura Anahita on the Hara, the Alborz mountains south of Caspian Sea.

(This shows Zend Avesta is an imitation of Hindu scriptures, sometimes a caricature of the Hindu Vedas)

Why did Sumeria and Egypt worship Indra?

Vientine, Laos

Indra in Vientaine, Laos (South East Asian country)

Research Paper written by London Swaminathan
Post No.1288; Dated:14th September 2014.

Indra is the oldest God in the world worshipped until today. There are over 100,000 temples in India and millions of Brahmins all over the world. In all these places we hear Indra’s name every day. Children are named after Indra or his wife Indrani (Saci) from Nepal to Sri Lanka and all over South East Asia.

I have written umpteen articles on Indra creating an Encyclopaedia of Indra to dispel the false notion spread by foreign ‘scholars’. He is NOT an “Aryan” God from Central Asia or Siberia. He is a Hindu god from India travelling to different parts of the world. In my previous article, I published the pictures of Laos and Mongolia stamps on Indra.

My conclusion is Indra is not one person. It is a title like KING or a LEADER. Indra is also used for GOD. In ancient Hindu India, kings were considered God. We see it in the Rig Veda and 2000 year old Sangam Tamil literature.

This article gives more proof to show that Indra was worshipped as God in Egypt, Sumer and Greece.

Indra referred to a title is confirmed by Mahabharata (Santi Parva, Chapter 224) and Vayu Purana (64-6-9). While Vayu Purana allocated 14 Indras for 14 Manvanataras, Mahabharata said that there were thousands of Indras in the past (See Indra in Indian Mythology by Muralidhar Mohanty for more details).

indra saci nepal
Wooden Sculpture of Indra and Saci from Nepal.

Foreign ‘scholars’ who did not study Tamil Tolkappiam or Mahabaharta made wrong statements that one Indra killed more than 30 demons in the Rig Veda. In fact they were not demons. Indra ‘s most celebrated episode is about killing a Brahmin !!!

We know for sure from the oldest Tamil book Tolkappaiam that Tamils worshiped the Vedic deity Indra. We know that Vedic Hindus gave top place to Indra in their worship. He is praised more than anyone else in the Vedas. But Indra worship did not stop there. Even Iranians, Sumerians, Egyptians and Greeks worshipped Indra! In their languages Indra meant The God!

In Egypt:
In Egypt “ntr” meant God. The hieroglyph ‘ntr’ meaning god is derived from a staff bound with cloth. This is Indra Dwaja (Flag of Indra) found in Ramayana and Tamil literature. Tamil epic Silappadikaram describes the Indra festival and Indra flag in great detail. Many of the ancient languages never write vowels. We have to insert vowels before reading it. “Ntr” will become Intra, if we introduce vowels into them.

3000 Gods in Sumeria

More than 3000 deities’ names have been recovered from Mesopotamia alone. These were organised by the Mesopotamians into groups resembling households, extended families or states (See Dictionary of the Ancient Near East published by The British Museum for more details).

In Avesta, Andira meant Indra and in Tamil Andiran meant Indra. I explain them below; Indra is mentioned in a two places in Zend Avesta.

In Sumeria Andara is Indra ( See page 147 of the ‘India We have Lost’)
Laos has issued stamps for Indra and Mongolia has issued stamps for Vajrayudha! Indra’s name is found all over the world in names like Andrew etc.


Of the 27 stars, Jyeshta is one. Greeks named the star Antares, i.e Indra. In Hindu scriptures the Devata/deity for Anatres is Indra! Hindus called this red star as Jyeshta meaning ‘the eldest’. This is another proof to show that Greek name Anatres and Indra are one and the same. (Among the goddesses also there is one Jyeshta). Scholars who did not know linked Antares with Ares (Mars) without any rhyme or reason!

There is another proof from ancient Sangam Tamil literature. Oldest book Tolkappiam called Indra with the name “Vendhan” meaning The King. But Sangam Tamil literature and later books like Tirukkural used Sanskrit word Indra. But not many people know that Andiran in Sanagam Tamil literature is also Indra.

There are two verses (240 and 241) in Purananuru sung by a Brahmin woman Uraiyur Enicheri Mudamosi. She composed many poems in praise of Ay Andiran, a Tamil chieftain. Only three poets used this word Andiran — all meaning chieftain Ay Andiran.

Miss Mudomosi gives us two vital facts:

1.When Ay Andiran died his wives burnt themselves in the funeral pyre. This custom known as “Sati” was practised more in the north from the Mahabharata days. But it was not compulsory. Even in the Mahabharata days, Pandava’s mother Kunti did NOT die in funeral pyre after Pandu’s death. Dasaratha’s wives did NOT die after Dasaratha’s death as well. There are two more references to Sati in Tamil literature, which I have already dealt with.

2.When Ay Andiran died Indra’s temple drums started playing loudly to welcome him! Miss Mudamosi described very clearly “Vajara Thadakkai Nediyon Koyil” meaning the “Temple of God one who wields the weapon Vajra/thunderbolt”. Why did she suddenly mention Indra welcoming her in the heaven? This is because Andiran meant Indra. Ayu/Ay is also found throughout Mahabharata and the Puranas (Hindu Mythlogy)

Ay Andiran’s forefathers came from Dwaraka of Krishna. He belonged to Velir clan which was brought to Tamil Nadu by Agastya 3000 years ago — around 1000 BCE. Another Brahmin poet of Sangam age Kapila gave this information in Purananuru verse 201.

Indra in the Indus Valley Civilization
The Rig-Veda identifies Indra with the bull which is the predominant seal in Indus valley civilisation. So we can conclude that Indra worship prevailed in the Indus Valley.

Indra’s vehicle is an elephant known as Airavata which is a predominant animal in Indus valley civilization. No other ancient civilization has elephant figure or association of an elephant with any ancient god. This is a very clear proof to show that Indra is an Indus God and not a foreigner from central Asia or Siberia. I have already explained the elephant and the standing figure with a wheel above, on an Indus tablet is Indra.
He is the god of the direction “East” which shows that he belongs to India and not a foreign god from the “West”.

His wife Indrani is the daughter of Asura Puloman which shows that Asuras belonged to one and the same race, belying Aryan – Dravidian racist theory. She is also known as Paulomi and Aindri. Andiran is Indra and Aindri is Indrani.

The English name Andrew and Andreas all came from Indra. Later new explanations were added by struggling foreign “Scholars”!!!

Indra Jatra in Nepal. This was celebrated in ancient Tamil Nadu.

Afghans worship Indra!
Indra and Imra are worshipped as Kafir gods in Afghanistan. The place where he was worshiped was called Kafiristan. He is worshiped in Waigal, Prasun areas of Hindukush and in Nuristan.

Indra is identified with Zeus of Greece,Thor of Norse Jupiter of Romans and Taranis of Celts.
