  1. Thank you for the effort. Have you covered all the available sites? Can we solely rely on this source for map practice?

  2. how you have drawn grid lines on map haven’t taken longitude or latitude as a reference.. can you explain the method for drawing the grids?

    1. Taking longitude and latitude is not desirable if one wants to make it simple. Grid lines are drawn from specific “critical” points on the border which one needs to remember. Critical points could be lowermost point in Tamilnadu, leftmost point in gujarat etc. This is not difficult to remember as there are only 9 or 10 vertical and horizontal lines.

  3. Sir your history through maps is nice but there is one problem.when I am going to click on the sites then it does not open e.g chalcolithic sites,harappan sites etc.only three sites namely neo,meso and Paleolithic being open and others are not….plz reply…

  4. Sir,

    By what time we can expect the important site groupings to be complete? That would be immensely helpful.

    Thanks in advance

  5. Chalcolithic Sites are asked frequently..when can we expect this on this portal? Thanks in advance..

  8. All Lithic Sites are not found in your categories of A B C D which you mention in important history optioal sites category. So provide all list of neo,meso,paleo.
