The volume contains twenty research papers in the fields of historical geography, history and ethnography of ancient India, based on a wide and penetrating study of ancient Indian literature Vedic, classical and Prakrit as well as the most recent investigations in the field of epigraphy and archaeology.

The author has brought to light new facts and revolutionizing interpretations of existing source material, giving the lie to the superficial derivations based on mere sound similarities, as is convincingly exemplified by his epoch-making identifications like that of Ludhiana with the Ailadhana of Valmiki's Ramayana; of the Shiwalik hills with the Salvakagiri of Paninis Ganapatha; among several others.
