P.N. Oak was born on March 2 1917 in Indore, India. P.N. Oak was born in a Maharashtrian Brahmin Family in which his father talked to him only in Sanskrit, mother only in English, relations in Marathi and town-folk in Hindi. That gave him fluency in all these four languages right from his childhood.
After obtaining his B.A. degree from Agra University and completing M.A. and LL.B courses from Bombay University, Oak worked for a year as Tutor in English at the Fergusson College Pune, and later having joined the army was posted to Singapore at the age of 24.
after the British surrender, Oak was one of the organizers of the Indian National Army, a director and commentator at the Free India Radio, Saigon, and later a co-worker of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.
After the end of World War II, Oak hitchhiked from Singapore to Calcutta across the border jungles of several countries.
From 1947 to 1974 his profession has been mainly journalism having worked on the editorial staffs of the Hindustan Times and the Statesman, as a Class I officer in the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India, and as editor in the American Embassy's Information Service, all in New Delhi.
Around 1959, Oak developed a curious new insight into history, which led him to some stunning discoveries as a result of his absorbing hobby of visiting historic sites. He then founded (June 14, 1964) the Institute for Rewriting Indian History and wrote several books
Oak's historical acumen led him to discover further that even world history has gone wrong. His discoveries have therefore, out-grown the name and scope of the Institute for Rewriting Indian History.
Having discovered that from time immemorial up to the Mahabharat War, Vedic culture and Sanskrit pervaded the whole world. Oak is keen to find a World Vedic Heritage University to educate the world in the primordial Vedic unity of all humanity.
