Nov 3 '15 at 21:45 comment added Keshav Srinivasan @sv. By the way, your comment led me to look more into Parashara and Maitreya, so I just posted a question related to them: hinduism.stackexchange.com/q/9308/36
Nov 3 '15 at 18:39 comment added Keshav Srinivasan OK, I edited my answer. The person speaking is Vyasa's father Parashara, who is telling the Vishnu Purana to the sage Maitreya. Parashara is the author of either two or three of the Puranas depending on how you count. He composed the Vishnu Purana and he composed another work called the Shiva Purana, but Vyasa split up Parashara's Shiva Purana into the two texts we now call the Shiva Purana and the Vayu Purana. Vyasa is the author of the other 16 Puranas, though.

Sep 20 '15 at 16:02 comment added Keshav Srinivasan No, Brahmanas can't be converted to other castes, at least not in their current birth. So I think it was just a Kshatriya advisor.
Sep 20 '15 at 15:48 comment added Yogi the minister might also be converted to kshatriya because he had all the rule under his hands and btw can any body like bramhin be converted to lower casts like kshatriya??
Sep 20 '15 at 12:03 comment added Keshav Srinivasan @Yogi Ministers aren't always Brahmins. I think Kshemaka's minister Vishrava was a Kshatriya, because otherwise I don't see how he and his descendants would have been accepted as king. As far how he could be so filthy, it is the Kali Yuga after all, so there's lots of evil going on.
Sep 20 '15 at 11:55 comment added Yogi Minister Must be a bramhin how can he be so filthy??
Sep 20 '15 at 11:53 comment added Keshav Srinivasan @Yogi Like I said, Kshemaka was killed by his minister, who became king and started a new dynasty. Ministers killing their king and taking over the kingdom was unfortunately a common thing in ancient India (at least in the Kali Yuga).
Sep 20 '15 at 5:59 comment added Yogi So after 25 generations kuruvansha will end with kshemaka but why I mean how did it came to an abrupt end?
Jul 10 '15 at 17:10 comment added Keshav Srinivasan @Naveen Yeah, the Vayu Purana was recited by Ugrashrava (aka Suta) during a Yagna conducted during the reign of Janamajeya's great-grandson Asimakrishna, as described in this excerpt from the Vayu Purana: gdurl.com/u-GX
Jul 10 '15 at 9:54 comment added Naveen This a prediction of lineage. Is there any historical record(aposteriori) on at-least one of the above mentioned kings who come after Janamajeya's son.
