A probable range compiled from different sources. Recently came to know of the date mentioned in the Aihole inscriptions. I read in wiki that we are now in Golden Era of Kali Yuga, that is just the beginning of it.. When planning a trip to Aihole we will definitely love to see the inscription. Thanks for bringing the post from various sources.

The conflict arose from a dynastic succession struggle between two groups of cousins, the Kauravas and Pandavas , for the throne of Hastinapura in an Indian kingdom called Kuru. It involved a number of ancient kingdoms participating as allies of the rival groups. The location of the battle is described as having occurred in Kurukshetra in north India. Despite only referring to these eighteen days, the war narrative forms more than a quarter of the book, suggesting its relative importance within the epic, which overall spans decades of the warring families. The narrative describes individual battles and deaths of various heroes of both sides, military formations, war diplomacy, meetings and discussions among the characters, and the weapons used.
