 Puranic data indicate that Lord Ram lived around 6,000 BCE to 7,000 BCE.

 My sole reason for this particular thread on Ramopakhyana is
 to question the dating of the Uttara Kanda -- whether or not
 it formed part
 of the original Valmiki Ramayana, nothing else!
 Read the rAmAyaNa properly..
 चतुर् विंशत् सहस्राणि
 श्लोकानाम् उक्तवान्
 ऋषिः |
 तथा सर्ग शतान् पंच षट्
 काण्डानि तथा उत्तरम्
 ...All the 7 kANDAs were composed simultaneously.
 That is the reason I have mentioned about those foreign
 scholars who tried to 
 fix the date.
 Keith fixes the date as 320 BC; Prof.Jacobi fixes as 6 BC.
 There are more such fascinating dates from Indian scholars 
 like Prof.Bhandarkar, Sri.Chintamani Vaidya,
 We must go by what tradition says after proper study of
 without carrying away by whims & fancies of western
 indologists !
