Exciting New Contents on Durable Link to this BLOG
One of the treasured artifacts in my family are the anthropological illustrations my dad made based on the cave-shelter paintings of Bhimbetka. There are thousands of them, they might look monotonous to a casual viewer, but they all are based on detailed studies and photographs, and are authentic sources of primary research.

I am happy to announce that some of these illustrations are now available on Kamat Research Database.

Prehistoric Plough (?)

They are nothing short of astonishing in theme, artistic beauty, and imagination and shed light in the progress even the primitive man had made in the fields of agriculture, zoology, and society.

Increasingly, there is more and more evidence (link to National Geographic article) that human civilization progressed in India far earlier than initially thought, and these illustrations will be a visual tool to discuss many aspects of early life of mankind (not just Indians). They make you think about "Did early humans live naked?" or "Who really invented the wheel?"
