Fanciful Ideas of Dr. Nicholas Kazanas!

Posted Yesterday at 05:14 AM by Sanjay Sonawani

Indigenous Aryan Theorists now-a-days are becoming inveterate adherents of the claims those cannot be substantiated even on the basis of common logic.

Engrossed in a new book, I've been studying more about the early Southern Dynasties. Although I'm familiar with the Liang from a literary perspective, outside of David Graff's work my grounding in the Song and Qi dynasties isn't particularly solid.
