Delhi, 24 February, 1984 -Beneath the soil lies the ancient city of Indraprastha which Lord Krsna also visited from time to time in those days, that is more than quarter to four thousand years ago. “Exacavation should be made and true ancient city shall be found.” said Preceptor Shrii P.R.Sarkar of Ananda Marga Pracaraka Samgha, when Beloved BA’BA’ visited the Purana Quila, Delhi today.

Speaking on the architectural style of the gate, Shrii P.R.Sarkar said that its stones, the loose joining of stones and the style, speak that this building was constructed in the first portion of Pathan period.

The structure is a blending of semitic and rajwara architect. In those days, the joining material was a mixture of crude molasses and lime, consequently it was a loose joining.

Besides, the square type of size of stones doesn not speak of a subtler taste as is evident from the Taj. Beloved BA’BA’ had a glance over other structures, and said all these structures had been constructed above seven hundred years ago, and some of the material used were taken from the older ones.

Destruction of these ancient structures distorts history and wounds humanity.

Preceptor Shrii P.R.Sarkar said, that if excavation be made Shauraseni language shall be found in Brahmi script, at some places Kharosti script can also be found, speaking on architectural metamorphosis, Ba’ba’ said that every five hundred years, it changes just as chin and nose get a significant change after 20 generations. Acrhitecture had several styles – the Utkal style is found in Orissa, In Bengal is found a blending of Gauria and Utkal styles, in Chattisgarh of M.P., the blending of Rajawara and Utkal style. Preceptor Shrii P.R.Sarkar has named the blending in Chattisgarhi a Chattisgarhi style beyond the river Godavari, the style of architect is Dravida like that of Meenakshi temple, Tamil Nadu.

Preceptor Shrii P.R.Sarkar said, real history is a blending of architect, anthropology and Philology. Department of Archeaology should guard and maintain the ancient relics.

Beloved BA’BA’ suggested that an independent Board of Historians should be made to write real history of men which should not be a chronology of Kings and rulers, but the history of people.

Excavation here will reveal the glory of ancient India and the city of Indraprastha. Of course, Hastinapura, the capital of Kauravas was more gorgeous than Indraprastha.

Speaking on the symbol with two triangles, one having its vertex upwards and the other downwards, Preceptor Shrii P.R.Sarkar said it is a Tantrika symbol and so the influence of Tantric symbol is curved on these buildings.

Preceptor Shrii P.R.Sarkar visit to several places of religious and historical importance and reveals many things which are beyond human comprehension.

Strange are the ways of divine personality, under whose divine guidance the sublime architect of new human society is being curved out.
