Kafirnama A Trek through 5000 Years of India’s Economic Dominance

Author Name: Ajay Sharma | Format: Paperback | Genre : History & Politics | Other Details

Kāfirnāma uses Scientific studies and archaeological discoveries from across the world - never written about earlier - to reconstruct the 11 FACTORS that worked in tandem to build India’s economic dominance over most of the last 5000 years.

As India strives to reclaim its position as one of the top 3 global economies after a gap of 150 years, read the Kāfirnāma and judge for yourself on how does India score on these 11 Economic Factors today.

Along the way, discover startling new revelations from India’s economic history, including some really eerie similarities with the world of today. For instance

·       The fine ‘Chinese’ silk sold to Europe in ancient times was manufactured in India. Albeit, the Parthians tricked the Chinese into buying Indian silk by claiming that it was silk made in Rome!

·       How Indians set up the world’s first trans-civilizational enterprise and the first global value chain.

·       Silver used in Indian coins from the 6th- 4th Century BC came from mines located in the British Isles, Spain, Greece, Turkey, and Iran – first ever scientific proof that India was trading with these regions in ancient times. 

·       India’s luxury trade with the Romans during the 2nd Century BC – 3rd Century AD was but one part of its highly diversified trade and destinations. All Ships did not lead to Rome!

·       Why Pakistanis can truly lay claim to be the descendants of the Mughals
