Witzel: "To sum up: as has been discussed in detail elsewhere [ Early Sanskritization], the new Kuru dynasty of Parik it, living in the Holy Land of Kuruk etra, unified most of the Rigvedic tribes, brought the poets and priests together in the common enterprise of collecting their texts and of "reforming" the ritual." [54] I just instantly felt like these are my people in a way - coz I'm Canadian and we are very different from Americans - there is really this connection, I feel, with UK actors and Scottish actors and people that we can make fun of ourselves. If the people on the rig want to survive, they must trust each other. But doing so becomes increasingly complex, as many workers become affected by what the fog has brought. The horror drama series is a tale of the extreme effects of climate change. Given the world we live in, if that has made you wonder whether ‘The Rig’ is inspired by actual events, here is what we think.

ISBN 978-3-11-081643-3. , Quote (p. 99): "Although the Middle/Late Vedic periods are the earliest for which we can reconstruct a linguistic map, the situation even at the time of the Indua Civilisation and certainly during the time of the earliest texts of the Rigveda, cannot have been very different. There are clear indications that the speakers of Rigvedic Sanskrit knew, and interacted with, Dravidian and Munda speakers."Tradition associates a rishi (the composer) with each ṛc (verse) of the Rigveda. Most sūktas are attributed to single composers; [note 5] for each of them the Rigveda includes a lineage-specific āprī hymn (a special sūkta of rigidly formulaic structure, used for rituals). In all, 10 families of rishis account for more than 95 per cent of the ṛcs Book Verse 1.164.20 (a hymn that is widely cited in the Upanishads as the parable of the Body and the Soul): "Two birds with fair wings, inseparable companions; Have found refuge in the same sheltering tree. One incessantly eats from the fig tree; the other, not eating, just looks on.";

Hampshire says she was keen to be involved in the show because she wanted to play the scientist Rose in the hope she would become more like her.

The Rigveda offers no direct evidence of social or political systems in the Vedic era, whether ordinary or elite. [37] Only hints such as cattle raising and horse racing are discernible, and the text offers very general ideas about the ancient Indian society. There is no evidence, state Jamison and Brereton, of any elaborate, pervasive or structured caste system. [37] Social stratification seems embryonic, then and later a social ideal rather than a social reality. [37] The society was semi-nomadic and pastoral with evidence of agriculture since hymns mention plow and celebrate agricultural divinities. [38] There was division of labor and a complementary relationship between kings and poet-priests but no discussion of a relative status of social classes. [37] Women in the Rigveda appear disproportionately as speakers in dialogue hymns, both as mythical or divine Indrani, Apsaras Urvasi, or Yami, as well as Apāla Ātreyī (RV 8.91), Godhā (RV 10.134.6), Ghoṣā Kākṣīvatī (RV 10.39.40), Romaśā (RV 1.126.7), Lopāmudrā (RV 1.179.1–2), Viśvavārā Ātreyī (RV 5.28), Śacī Paulomī (RV 10.159), Śaśvatī Āṅgirasī (RV 8.1.34). The women of the Rigveda are quite outspoken and appear more sexually confident than men, in the text. [37] Elaborate and aesthetic hymns on wedding suggest rites of passage had developed during the Rigvedic period. [37] There is little evidence of dowry and no evidence of sati in it or related Vedic texts. [39]


Maurice Winternitz ( History of Sanskrit Literature, Revised English Translation Edition, 1926, vol. 1, p. 283. Mandala 5 comprises 87 hymns, mainly to Agni and Indra, the Visvedevas ("all the gods'), the Maruts, the twin-deity Mitra-Varuna and the Asvins. Two hymns each are dedicated to Ushas (the dawn) and to Savitr. Most hymns in this book are attributed to the atri clan. [ citation needed] The text is organized in ten "books", or maṇḍalas ("circles"), of varying age and length. [56] The "family books", mandalas 2–7, are the oldest part of the Rigveda and the shortest books; they are arranged by length (decreasing length of hymns per book) and account for 38% of the text.
