Prithviraj R writes in a friendly, easily accessible style for the lay reader while unlocking the mysteries of history and religion. The journey through the book’s pages will leave readers with a sense of mystery, wonder, and awe as numerous theories are explored from why Jesus did not die on the cross to how all religions may have their source in an ancient culture near the Arctic that moved southward following the end of the Ice Age.

About the Author
Born into a devout family, Prithviraj R had read the huge and unabridged version of India’s famous epic Valmiki Ramayan and become well versed in India’s epic Mahabharat by age ten. He soon gained a comparative knowledge of other major world religions by observing huge differences between the religious cultures of India’s different regions. Prithviraj R felt that India as well as other cultures faced several to and fro migrations throughout their histories. This book is a product of two decades of research in religious studies, in which Prithviraj R traces Indian as well as world history to a group of people who lived in the Arctic region 19,000 years ago.
