Hi there,
I was wondering if there are people interested in a meetup/conversation about our history, and history in general. How for example archaeological finds in Arikamedu or Nalanda or Indus Valley have shaped our perspective of history. How the rest of the classical civilizations in near east and europe compare to us, interesting still, do we have exposure to the New World civilizations, the Mayans, The Aztecs, the Olmecs and Teotihuacans or the Incas - collectively classified as meso american or pre-columbian civilizations. History of language, how linguists and archaeologists reconstruct a dead language called the proto indo european of which our Sanskrit, Hindi, Bengali have descended. How from an early primate stage of the Neanderthals we have evolved to this homo-sapiens age of computers and internet.

Would anybody be interested to discuss these with a few bottles of beer ?
