HINDsight -1

If there is one good thing that came out of watching 'Mangal Pandey - The rising', it is, my desire to re-read Indian history. I discovered, not to my surprise, that different historians have different takes and different arguments. No wonder, Schelegel said, " The historian is a prophet looking backwards". waise... what fun is reading without sharing... I intend writing a series of synopsis quoting all that i like and my own point of view ofcourse... so here are the lessons for the day...

Stone Age : around the time when people threw stones at each other. There weren't any glass houses or windows for that matter and so there was no damage done to property...

Copper Age: The period when people use/used copper... so this age isn't over yet...

Iron Age : Begins when Tata Iron and Steel was established... Sardar Patel is their best product yet.

Dark Ages : spread from sunset to dawn every day... it was once a periodical event... electricity and Edison though disturbed the dark ages...

The old age : The time period just before the day of judgement, apocalypse, or Armageddon. So, thats right about now...

This is very well written, except that it somehow is mismatched to the sessions that follow....I haven't yet gone to the next sessions though...coming one after one....

@ amaranthine

Thank you. This whole series of HINDsight is not completely my own work... I'm re-writing stuff as i recollect... part quoted and part in my own words, mixed with my own opinion and point of view... The mismatch i think comes from the second part which i think is out of sync...

Reading your comment prompted me to read through your blogs randomly at the expense of my office :)...and honestly it was worth it.
