Searching for a basis to tie Saka Era to CE (AD)
Everyone cheerfully declares that 78 AD is the zero year of Salivahana Saka (Saka Era) but No One tells me how they concluded this. Some quote Whitaker but I could not find his rationale either!
The rationale is important to me. Please Let me know if you find out before I do.
