...Fort”; 1a) archaeologists uncovered shards of Painted Gray ware (a fine gray earthenware often with designs in black) datable to the 10th century bce . The presence of Painted Gray ware, uncovered at Hastinapura and other sites associated with the Mahābhārata epic, tends to confirm the theory that the mound on which the Purana Qil῾a stands conceals the ancient city of Indraprastha, the capital of the Pandava heroes in the epic. The area was known as Inderpat until recent times. The Painted Gray ware at the Purana Qil῾a was, however, mixed with later...

Holmes is said to have remarked of Brandeis, “He believed in footnotes, and I didn't.” Cardozo would take a page to say what Holmes could say in a sentence, and on occasion his quest for exalted eloquence made his writing vacuous. In Welch v. Helvering ( 1933 ), involving the question whether a person who paid his employers' debts could take a tax deduction, Justice Cardozo said: “Life in all its fullness must supply the answer to the riddle” (p. 115).

The Crystal Palace exhibition held in London in that year included bidri ware of high quality from Bidar; the Paris exhibition followed in 1855 . Details of bidri ware shown at both exhibitions were singled out for illustration in the influential book, The...
