MASS KILLING OF MEGHS BY ANCIENT ARYANS

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Repeated descriptions of Indira and Dasyu/Dasa/Meghs in Rigveda indicate that the Aryans had to struggle for long (about 500-600 years) in order to gain control over the Sapta Sindhu empire ruled by Meghs (who in the Aryan literature also find mention as Dasyu, Dasa, Asur, etc.). Among the Megh rulers, Vritra (known as Megh Rishi) was the prominent emperor. This struggle is mentioned in the hymns (R.V. II-12-4, II-11-4, II-11-5, II-11-19, VI-16-15). In some 100 Hymns out of 10,000 Hymns of Rigveda, it is found that the Aryans prayed to Gods for providing them wealth, women and cows of the enemies. The following Rigvedic hymns reveal the massacre of their enemies who have been addressed as Asuras/ Dasyus/ Dassas or Meghs. In Rigveda, the word Asura has been used atleast of 47 times and refers to Meghs. The word Megh figures for about 38 times, out of which only at two places or so, it refers to the clouds. Scientifically thinking, the clouds are harbingers of rains. The word Megh, in fact, has been frequently used to refer to Vritra or to the people following him or his subjects under his rule. Therefore, Vritra has also been mentioned as 'Pratham Megh'(RV-I/32(4).
