India history and geographySource: archive.org: Nilamata Purana: a cultural and literary study (history)
Gotamī (गोतमी) is the name of a river mentioned in the Nīlamatapurāṇa. The Gotamī according to the Godāvarī Māhātmya flows from the Vārāhaparvata. Gomatī mentioned in v. 1255 of the Nīlamata is probably a misreading for Gotamī of v. 1152.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.

Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
