    No Sir. Where the evidence is explicit there is no need for assumption. In fact this may be better off in it's own topic. Let's keep this topic about the references to Brahmans in Bansawalinama only, and it won't clutter up the topic. It will help those who wish to read these topics in the future.

    ...good on you !
    ..confirmed
    ..I'll go along with what you're saying, pls continue ..
    ..hmn, "history" ? I think we have to be careful Kully Ji to call someone historian just because he's written books. I mean, loads n loads of writers from all over the planet have made brave efforts to base their work on primary n secondary sources, but nothing of the sort springs to mind that would deem it "good history" when it comes to Indian historians because there was no systematic use of sources and there were no accepted methodological principles. Accordingly, I'm obliged to interrogate to my hearts content whether Chibber be a reliable candidate ?
    ..good !
    ..yes, pretty much dependent upon what the subject-matter is ! For example, the existence of God cannot be intellectually analysed. And, if you recall, it was for this reason, I once said to you whether questions of religious faith be susceptible to rational deliberations ?
    ...now this kind of literature throws up lot of questions; who is writing, is it Gobind the mortal man, Gobind the Guru or, is it the transcendent Gobind ?

    Don't know. But would like to know what you think. What is your own thought on this?

    Given that you, Kully, the wannabe scholar, try and workout which of his compositions corresponds with which Gobind !
