Aryavarta version of lord of the Rings


A novel way, literally, , of studying the history of India. lets use the events and nations and characters and geography of the story and link them with real events and kingdoms and characters and geography to maybe learn something new.


Ok, so who is Sauron, Jesus or Mohamed?

You're not serious... 'Which Sikh gets to be the wizard' ?

India doesn't need the Lord of the Rings... it's got the Mahabharat and Ramayan. Lets reorient this... what figures from the Ramayan can fit the Lord of the Rings? Easily the Elves could be the Gandharvas. The Orcs and Trolls? The Rakashas.

Asuras maybe. We have plenty of good rakshasas. No such thing as a good orc so far as I know.

Maybe the dwarves could be rakshasas?

Lord of the rings is pretty well known because of the movies, and I also wanted to involve everyone on earth in relation to Indian history, not just the Vedic tribes. So similarly I didn't pick the Epic of Gilgamesh or the Illiad or Journey to the west or Beowolf etc but instead picked something made up entirely.

So, Which Sikh wizard gets to be subverted by sauron?

Actually, I'm quite surprised by the amount of parallels that we can make.

Are the elves still in love with trees?
