Dashrajanya battle

The real description of the battle:


Pitdwellers in the Rigveda

Indra and Vritra

A fresh translation of hymn 1.32 of Rigveda available at


The misers

Hymn 3.53.14

kiṃ te kṛṇvanti kīkaṭeṣu ghāvo nāśiraṃ duhre na tapantigharmam


“What will they hear, why sing for them? they are such misers, they won’t even donate their mucous; they won’t even donate their sweat when it’s hot!”


My translation (for more see my ebook “A Horse Amongst Donkeys”)
