In this book, the chronological reconstruction of the Indian history is continued beginning with the rise of the Satavahanas. The revised dating of the Kushanas is confirmed by the identification of Kushana king Vasudeva II with the king Basdeo whose daughter was married to Sasanian king Bahram V. The chronology of the Vallabhi kings is fixed by counting their dates from the Shaka era instead of the Vallabhi era. The new chronology validates the numerous Rajput genealogies describing the celebrated Bappa Rawal as a descendant of Shiladitya VII in the eighth generation. In a travesty of history, current historians place Śilāditya VII chronologically after Bappa Rawal. The chronology of the Gurjara kings is fixed by counting their dates from the Shaka era instead of the Kalachuri-Chedi era. For the first time, the history of Persia, Vallabhi, Gurjaras, Later Guptas, Pushyabhutis, Maukharis, Hunas and Turks are critically analyzed to reconstruct the epic battle of Korur, which is currently deleted from the pages of history.
