References on Indic History

The History and Culture of the Indian People (HCIP) by R.C. Majumdar is a
 comprehensive multivolume series that covers the entire history pretty well too
 but then he is also called "saffron" though what he
 wrote is the same as written by the Muslim historians

"This book provides an interesting foray into the undated history of ancient Vedic, Brahamanic and Puranic India. Based upon the author's research into ancient Indian literature like the Puranas, Mahabharata, Ramayana, Aranyakas, Upanisads etc, along with Buddhist, Pali and Jain evidences; this work provides the only attempt at historically authenticating what has generally been relegated to the folk or mythical level.

"This includes providing the correct genealogies of the ancient Indian dynasties and putting events in a proper chronological order and to provide sequential dating to important events, such as the Mahabharata war. This work of remarkable scholarship has provided a critique of all existing works on the era and made reference to every known historical explanation." (jacket)

Jadunath Sarkar is a well respected historian and his books on Aurangzeb
and other Muslim rulers are also a good source. His book on Aurangzeb is not
easily available since reprint rights are not granted. Some libraries might
have old prints. It is worth reading though. Sarkar does have his bias
against the Marathas, for whatever reason.
