I’m really glad to know that the Greeks (read white people) were responsible for the Ramayan. That’s a huge weight off my mind.
The author apologised in the following tweets but I’m posting it that we may remember. There is a very subtle historical bias that constantly pumps up the Greco-Romans at the expense of other civilisations. It’s a way to justify not only colonialism and a linkage that there has always been something exceptional (and outward looking) about Western Civ.
