  3. Namaste Aneesh ji,
    Firstly dhannyawaad for bringing to us information and knowledge about our history that is not taught in our schools your videos and article are awesome and a treat to watch and read. I would like to if one wanted to know more about the Maratha history, Assam history and related things down to the minute details where and how should one start. Like which books to read, where to find such book a etc. It would be great if you would guide me. Also it would great if you created a section in your site where you list all your sources.
