2017-02-17 SICON02 S14 Monograph 2: Politics of Sanskrit Studies

Swadeshi Indology Conference 2 – Inaugural Session

Speaker: Manjushree Hegde

Sheldon Pollock employs a three-dimensional philology to “make sense” of Valmiki’s Ramayana i.e, he analyzes the text from three different angles/planes: a) Plane 1 — analysis of the “original nucleus” of the Ramayana; b) Plane 2 — analysis of Indian tradition’s reading of it; c) Plane 3 — analysis of the employment of the classical text in politics today. In the present monograph, I employ three angles to analyze and critique his different readings: a) Philological — analysis of the method employed to “make sense” of the text; b) Semantic — analysis of factuality of certain data, translations, interpretations, etc; c) Linguistic — analysis of language employed for sophisticated hypothesizing. I also propose an alternate model of philology that may be employed in “making sense” of texts like the Ramayana.

2017-02-17 SICON02 S9 Critique of & Rebuttal to Pollock’s Dating for epics

Swadeshi Indology Conference 2
Critique of & Rebuttal to Pollock’s Dating for epics

Speaker: Nilesh Oak

A Critique of Pollock’s “Self-Evident Claims” for the Chronology of Mahabharata & Ramayana AND Assertion
for the Dating of Mahabharata & Ramayana Events
Based on the Internal Astronomy Evidence

The presentation provides a summary of astronomy evidence that sets specific timelines for the chronology of Mahabharata and Ramayana which in turn falsifies all claims for the chronology of Mahabharata that fall after 4500 BCE and all claims for the chronology of Ramayana that fall after 10,000 BCE.
