It was established in the previous article, that a mountain known as “Udayagiri” located in Fiji Islands (180 degree E) was regarded as the first location of sunrise on the earth. The route towards this place from India was narrated by the Vanara king, Sugreeva and recorded in Valmiki Ramayana. This narration showed that when the sun is overhead in this location, it is dawn in the Indian subcontinent.
There also existed a 'Kush' empire that ruled Egypt in the 7th and 6th century BCE. Their origin is traced to Sudan, but there is nothing more known about their previous roots. The analysis of the web sources of this Kush throws interesting connection with India and Nepal where Kush and Luv were born.
For example the ruling queens of Kush empire were known as 'Kandake' . This is phonetically similar to Ganadki, a river that flows from Nepal to India. In the vicinity of this river lived Sita! There is a Valmiki Ashram on the banks of this river in Nepal where Sita took asylum under Valmiki Maharishi when she was pregnant. Her children Luv and Kush were born in this place. This is really a surprising connection that the queens of Kush dynasty in Egypt were known as Kandake!
Like Kandake for queens, the kings of this dynasty bore a titular name, "Qore" 'Khola' is the name of the streams in Gandaki river!
Another interesting connection with Indic sources is the prevalence of the name 'Mani' (meaning gem in Sanskrit) in the names of kings of Kush dynasty. The names of kings of Kush dynasty run like this: Aserkamani,
All these show that a deeper analysis of the roots of Kush dynasty is needed to be done. The preliminary indications show that they were an of-shoot of Kush, the son of Rama!
