Re: References for Prof. Guptara

Dear Professor Roy
     Thanks for your references, which I regard as fundamental reading and 
     I am familiar with these (though, as you know, none of these is 
     without its limitations).
     Probably, I did not make my request clear: I was asking about a 
     history specifically of the development of Indian religion.
     These other books throw some tangential light on the subject, but do 
     not help us to get a sense of how Vedic religion gave way to the 
     Buddhist-Jain hegemony in the 6th to 3rd centuries BC, how those 
     hegemonies themselves dissolved due to their own corruption by around 
     the 1st century BC-1st century AD, and the subsequent division between 
     Advaita philosophy and the later PHILOSOPHICAL schools in "Hinduism" 
     versus the YOGIS versus BHAKTI religion versus TEMPLE religion versus 
     FAMILY religion; then of course there was the impact on Indian 
     religion of Christianity, Islam, Sikhism, and what might be called 
     "Islamised- and Christianised-Hinduism" specifically from the middle 
     of the nineteenth century onwards; and so on.
