Indika, based on Hekataios' Aegyptiaka, was written in either the Attic or Ionian dialects and was divided into four sections.

In a nutshell, it's a detailed description from the king to the most remote tribe.
The Church was successful in vilifying Hindus and their tradition. Most people associate with India and Hinduism even today mainly “an oppressive caste system and many strange gods”. It was also what I had learnt in school about Hinduism.
