actually its the oppositeWhat that Porus could be trained in controlling his elephant? There's no dearth of references to Indian kings being trained in the skills associated with Mahouts. Also, you really should think about letting some of that weird complex you have about european scholars go.
Actually never mind. I'll just say - ethnocentrism is never a good look on someone wanting to appear academically justified.
this eurocentric argument is not backed by hard facts but mere claims. when evidence is presented and busting their false claims they label those people as ethnocentric, nationalists etc which i find abhorring. The nationalism is not producing counter evidences that howdahs were present or coin is an artistic rendition nothing else, but nationalism is making tall false claims based on agenda driven just like ''victory coin'' minted by alexander in honour of his victory against porus or howdahs ''invented'' by ''greek engineers''. where is the evidence of this ''victory coin'' how is it a ''victory coin''? it is like seeing some holy name in clouds or banana peel or animal hide or something
these are all european fake claims is making a mountain out of a mole for european history.
