Format: Paperback
This is an interesting book. It is written by a Zoroastrian author, from India, and concerns the "history of the Aryan Race". The style is simplistic but effective, in the vein of epic sagas of the Indian variety. We get to follow a number of heroic characters (mainly manly men and fair ladies of various stripes), as they leave their home in the polar region to conquer the world. The book is based on a Zoroastrian world-view (according to which zoroastrianism, or rather the worship of Ahura Mazda, is the original Indo-European religion, though it has become diluted in both Europe and elsewhere), and as the wanderings of the Aryans continue, we finally end up in the area of Iran. Here Zoroaster/Zarathustra is born to restore the True Religion.

The intention of the book is to inspire pride in the author's fellow Zoroastrians. The communities of Parsis and Irani Zoroastrians are dwindling on a global scale due to low birthrates and intermarriage causing children to be raised outside the faith, as well as (I would guess) the severity of the Islamic repression in Iran, which has reduced the Zoroastrian population in Iran to a minimal fraction. This is probably one of the reasons why the book is so simple in style - while it is a really good read for an adult, it is not too complex to be understood even by children.

I can only wish Porus the best of luck in his struggle to maintain and restore his once-proud community to health. His book is an impressive effort to write a modern day spiritual epic.

In Iran and India, "Aryan" is the tribal forbearers of these modern nations, in the same way "Anglo-Saxons" are the tribal forbearers of the United States. This book, The Saga of the Aryan Race, seeks to flesh out this tribes story by connecting it to the ancient scriptures of the Zoroastrianism religion.

The book is a compilation of a series about the Aryans moving from their mythical home in the Arctic to Iran. They must survive against nature and savage man, carry out good marriages to preserve their people, and follow their religion.

What is striking is just how similar the Zoroastrian faith is to Christianity in many ways. The story is much like the early Puritan founders of Massachusetts Bay Colony. One wonders if Indo-European expansion across the globe has been carried out by means of a common pattern.

The book is best read and understood by a person familiar with Zoroastrian ideas.

Format: Paperback
Talageri researches beautifully but lacks an analytical thought process - A hundred and twenty years ago, Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak proved in his seminal work 'Arctic Home In The Vedas ; An Ignored Historical Research" in 1885 that the original home of the Aryans was in the Arctic. So this poop about Aryans migrating outwards from the Land of the Black Monkey just doesn't jell. Must be an excellent book but I'll wait for the paperback edition which is cheaper. Moreover, renowned archaeo-astronomer Nilesh Nilkanth Oak has made Talageri look like a confused clown in his 2 books 'When Did the Mahabharata War Happen?: The Mystery of Arundhati' and 'The Historic Rama: Indian Civilization at the End of Pleistocene' so I'll reserve my verdict . . .

The subject is interesting though, and anyone interested in it will find it much more convincing (and cheaper) to read the 3-volume historical fiction by Porus Homi Havewala "The Saga of the Aryan Race" (Paperback) – April 6, 2011 . . .

The Saga of the Aryans is a semi-fictional historical novel on the origins of the Aryan people. The Saga deals with the lives of the ancient Indo-Europeans about twenty thousand years ago, who proudly called themselves the Aryans - the Noble Ones. They were the first MazdaYasnis, the Worshippers of Ahura Mazda: God in the ancient Aryan tongue of Avestan.

Volume I of the Saga describes vividly the Great Migration of the Aryan ancestors from their ancient homeland Airyanam Vaejo in the North Pole, due to the Ice Age glaciations that occurred in that ancient age. Drawing inspiration from the sacred Scriptures of the Aryan Zoroastrians, in which the great journey is authenticated; the book unfolds the trials and tribulations that befell the ancient ancestors of mankind in their great journey to the South and the South-West, towards Iran, India, Greece, Russia, Germany and the other nations of Europe. The Aryans display great heroism against the bitter cold and blizzards, the wild animals and the savage barbarians. Romance blooms among the young, as they travel onwards to IRAN.

The Saga is interspersed with heroic verse, in the great Aryan tradition. In Volume II, The Advent of Asho Zarathushtra, the story takes up the life of the ancient Aryan Prophet Zarathushtra, eight thousand years ago. When the Earth-Soul cried out for a Saviour, Zarathushtra was born to redeem the ancient Aryan faith. The glorious birth of the Aryan Prophet in Iran is vividly described, followed by the many miraculous events in his early childhood. Volume III onwards continue the story of the youth and manhood of the Prophet Zarathustra, including the Divine Relevations he received from Ahura Mazda, his travels in Iran, and his tribulations in the Royal court of Iran.
