It Cherry-Picks Details Of Many Similar Aspects Found In Varied Works. The Samhita In Subject Relevant Astrological Parlance, Is Nothing But An Encyclopedia Of Astronomical, Astrological, And Other Aspects Of Human Interest Where People Have An Abiding Faith And Belief. Hence, The Samhita Can Rightly Be Termed A Work Of Social Science, For Social Science Has Reference To And Explanation Of Almost All The Aspects Of Social Life And Those That Have A Human Appeal.
