Kuru realm: Black and red Ware or Painted Grey Ware Culture?[edit]

I think it must be clarified if Kuru realm belongs to BRW or PGW. As far as I know it belongs to PGW. Sites like Hastinapura has PGW and no BRW. I would like the sources for putting BRW in the article. Thank you





There is a kuruba community in Southern India. Many ancient dynasties of south India like Pallava, Hoysala, Sangama of Vijayanagara Empire etc are supposed to be from this clan. Their is a belief and practices of ancestor worship like worshiping badaganadaiah ( god from North etc) along with Beeralingeswara. May be research into genealogy of these people would give more truth to the Indian History.TT 22:07, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

Lack of Reference[edit]

This page does not have any reference. Without any reference the content is not verifiable. --UB 11:30, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

Harsh POV[edit]

The view that the Kurus were from Central Asia is contradicted by the new debunking of the supposed "Aryan invasion 
of India" which never happened. Thus, the Indo-Aryan Kurus were not from Central Asia or Europe or anywhere outside 
India for that matter. Ancient Indian texts mention no geographical references outside India and it is prepostrous 
to assume that the Ganga refer to anything but the Ganga in India. If texts are to be interpreted that way, no 
geographical reference can be accepted. The Himalayas will become a Central Asian mountain range!

Needs to be removed but I am not familiar enough with this topic to rewrite it myself.

the usual polemic BS, just remove. dab () 09:31, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

I agree. WHy this pathetic need to identify with Iran and Central Asia. India was a distinct and powerful civilisation whose culture was unique. Also any migration could have been the other way. India did rule Afghanistand and parts of Iran and Central Asia during the later Mauryan period

Kaurava not Kuru[edit]

Shouldn't this really be at Kaurava Kingdom, as I believe Kaurava refers to descendants or anything else "of Kuru", whereas Kuru was just the name of an ancestral King of the Candravamsha? --Grammatical error 20:08, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
