Pitaji_GuruPurnima05_CleanDr. Fatah Singh (13.7.1913 to 6.2.2008 AD) was a scholar of the century, when it comes to interpretation of Vedas and related scriptures in spiritual light. He would be best remembered for his unique, scientifically coherent, and practical interpretation of Vedic literature, that is useful to every day life, as supported by the manuscripts he has left behind and a number of doctoral thesis’s he guided.

 

Dr. Singh was also a known expert on Indus Valley Civilization. Based upon his decipherment of nearly 1500 Indus Valley seals, he found that the Indus Valley Civilization was a carry-over of Vedic Civilization which existed throughout India ; not just in Harappa & Mohenjo-Daro region of Sindhu. In 1968 his research revealed for the first time that the Indus Valley seals contained thoughts of Vedas and Upanishads, thus exploding the myth of Aryan migration theory. He observed that the Aryan and Dravidian cultures are both of Vedic origin.

 

An eminent scholar of  Veda, Hindi & Sanskrit literature, and linguistics, Dr. Singh was honored by several prestigious national awards which included the Harjimal Dalmia Puraskar(1948), for Vedic Darshan, U. P. Government prize for  Kamayani Saundarya (1953), Rajasthan Government  Special Merit Pay for original research (1963-72), Honorary Mahamahopadhyaya title (1982), Maharana Kumbha award of Mewar Foundation (1988), Delhi Sanskrit Academy Samman (1990), Rajasthan Sanskrit Academy Samman (1992), Sahitya Bhushan Samman by U.P. Hindi Sansthan (1998). Ved Vedaang Samman by Sandipani Asharam (2000), and Sahitya Shiromani Samman by Savitri Sansthan Lucknow (2001). During his visits to USA he expounded upon his integration vision for the World Man, and that Veda is the fountain head of all religions.

 

Dr. Fatah Singh’s beginning was very humble, with strong core values that remained a solid foundation throughout his immensely challenging life. He was born in a farmer’s family at Bhadeng Kanja, a village in Pilibhit district of U.P. that had no schools or educated people. In spite of practically no support for education, with inspiration from Dayanand Saraswati, he went all the way to obtain the first “D. Lit.” degree from the famous Banaras Hindu University in 1944. His thesis was entitled "Vedic Quest into the Mysteries of Vak".

 

For several years Dr. Singh served as Head of Hindi & Sanskrit Departments and, later as Principal, in various colleges of Rajasthan University . In later years of active service he was Director of the Rajasthan Oriental Research Institute, where he edited 33 ancient manuscripts and deciphered nearly 1500 seals from the Indus Valley . After retiring from the Oriental Research Institute, he stayed for several years at Veda Sansthan in New Delhi , where he guided research for a meaningful elaboration of Vedic glossary called Nighantu, to enhance a method of Vedic interpretation initiated by Yaska in about 1000 BC.
