Historical background

Veda Vyasa is the eponym of the waterway Beas, the creator of Indian epic Mahabharata; he is said to have made it from its source lake, the Vyas Kund.

Apparatus veda calls the waterway Vipās, which implies liberated, in later Sanskrit messages it’s been called Vipāsā, Yāska distinguishes it with Argrikiya

Antiquated Greeks called it Hyphasis, Pliny called it Hypasis, an estimation to the vedic Vipās. Other traditional names are Hynais, Bipasis, Bibasis.

In current circumstances it’s likewise been called Bias or Bejah

Beas or Bias is one of Punjab’s streams specified with regards to Sapta-Sindhu in the holy Rig-Veda, the main book of the subcontinent in the until now written history. It was called Vapashain the Vedic writing and was referred to the old Greeks as Hyphasis. Sapta-Sindhu is same ashapta hənduin Avestian dialect. The stream is named after Rishi Vyasa who says the fantasy, made it from Vyas Kund, the lake that is its source in Himalayas from where it streams into the Himachal Pradesh (a piece of Punjab before its division) and after that enters East Punjab. In the wake of navigating many kilometers it at last falls into the Sutlej (Sutudri) in Kapurthala District. The Rig-Veda, in one of its notable songs, depicts the Bharata clan’s intersection of thundering Sutlej and Beas streams by chariots in this way: ‘like two brilliant mother dairy animals who lick their youngling, Vapasha and Stutudri speed down their waters (trans. Griffith)’. Comparison of dairy animals for waterway may sound irregular to us however in the realm of Vedic writing, stream and bovine were seen to have a natural connection. The reason most likely was that in those old circumstances both were and still are essential wellspring of life. Stream gave water to human, creature, plant life and flooded land while bovine with its drain managed family and supported farming produce with the bulls it brought forth.


In one fantasy, Aryan warlord Indra who was idolized, is commended for his overcome demonstration of killing Viritra  and freeing the waterways from the Harappa individuals. In another legend, Indra is celebrated for crushing the Vala give in and getting back dairy animals purportedly stolen and kept there by the Harappa individuals. So access to streams and ownership of dairy animals were critical to the developing Aryan domination. After all it was anything but a matter of ox-like idiocy to set up linkages between booing cow and thundering stream in the prolific fields of Punjab.Therein lies the mystery of the procedure that has changed dairy animals into sacrosanct creature which is the driver of Hindutva governmental issues in the Northern India nowadays.
