The concepts presented looks some what tweaked to fit with the dates, and theories presented are not correct.
certain assumptions made made were baseless and cannot be substantiated with theories.
King of devas is called Indra no matter what the name of the king is, this is hard to digest, In an dominian world people have tendency to spell his name rather than the position like "Indra". As devas tribe existed for around centuries their customs did not change, they always faught wars with Raksas.
Also According to author, Life of devas (human beings) started from Tibet and suprisingly they travelled only to south and crossed great himalayas (that are very harsh for the human beings to survive) from their present location, though they can travel to china easily without any hurdles if their goal to reach out new areas to rule.
kings of Tibet region are always called Indra, surprisingly all the kings accepted the position as important rather than their name other than Shiva who is known by his name.
Concept of each ruling of King is around 20 yrs and it is passed on to the next son so that dates can be tweaked to fit has no substantial evidence. On an average each king has more than 5 kids (Male) to carry his empire to next generation. Also based on the tribal conditions this extrapolation is really hard to digest because health is not that much developed in those days it is also provide by science that majority of the diseases were landed on humans because of non vegetaranism. If people would have known agriculture at that time then we can expect they would live longer.
Surisingly It took rama around 8 months to reach ayodhya from his so called concept of Lanka an island near Orrissa, but kings of Tibet travelled to all over india in a matter of days during wars, Some thing strange. Also looks like author travelled less in the south. There are many lankas in south. Atleast you can name more than 2 in Andhrapradesh itself.
Indonesia history tells that there were more Ganesh temples in Indonesia and Malaysia etc that were ruined than currently are. this means that these lands are attached some how so that people can travel to those places if your tought is people did not make boats, so rama need not make any bridges to go to lanka.
Diversion of river by bhagiratha: If he has powers to divert a river in those days this means that technology is good enough to move earth material or India would have some many labourers existing and asking for work to get food, This can be contradicting because if so many people existed in the olden days our history would have been preserved very well.
Also the character of narada is like generations, i.e Tribes have customized the tradition of narada, Indra, and so on. Also it is very strange to know that if the so called gods are well cultured they would have preferred to call by their names rather than their positions.
It took years for them to travel from one place to another place, but some how Vedas spread like wild fire almost every sage has got oppurtunity to read vedas according to the book.
Some how after reading this book I feel that history was tweaked to fit in rather than the real exploration in this area. Need a bit more research to present with facts.

It has tremendous potential, I wish the author had spent more time editing.
