No Term Called Dalit; Bharatiyas Moolnivasis since 75000 BCE
Aryan Invasion theory! Aryan Dravidian divide! Dalits versus Brahmins! Bhim Sena! All of these terminologies are part of the ‘Break India’ forces. These break India forces are ‘dalitising’ situations for vote gains and to create chaos and unrest across the country.
In Sanskrit, ‘dalit’ means ‘oppressed’ and in Hindi, the term denotes ‘broken or scattered’. Dalit is thus no particular caste group, as perceived and coined. So any person, irrespective of creed, community, or religion, facing oppression, can be called a Dalit, but not a particular group of people. No ancient records find mention of Dalit as any group of people. Even Babasaheb Ambedkar would not have imagined in his wildest of dreams that a mass revolution targeted towards breaking India in the name of Bhim Sena would arise one day! Dalits keep criticizing Brahmins, citing they were Aryans, giving impetus to the false Aryan invasion theory.
Beginning 1100 AD, Islamic rule was established in the Indian sub continent. The Islamic rulers subjected Indians to the worst of oppression through loot, plunder, massacre, forced conversions, and what not, destroying the nation culturally, socially, and economically. And with British rule, India was further drained of her rich culture and resources. Their divide and rule policy was their biggest advantage. History is proof of how, over time, the Indians themselves have been responsible for the destruction of India by falling prey to the vicious net trap laid by ‘Break India’ forces. The British left India yet their ‘break and divide India’ influence hasn’t. Besides, distorted historical records which they have left behind and which find a prominent place in our History text books continue to influence minds, generation after generation.
Maria Wirth rightly describes thus, “Curiously, ‘caste’ is Portuguese for class. It is not even an Indian term. The ancient Vedas mention four varnas – Brahmins, Kshatryas, Vaishyas and Sudras, which form the body of society, like the head, arms, thighs and feet form the body of a human being. It is a beautiful analogy which implies that all parts are important. True, the head will be given more respect, but will you ignore your feet? Not everyone is made for intellectual work, fortunately, because a society without farmers, traders, workers won’t be possible. All have their role to play…. Varna was not hereditary originally. It depended on one’s predominant guna (quality of character) and one’s profession. The job of Brahmins was specifically to memorise the Vedas and preserve them absolute correctly for future generation. They had to have predominately satwa (pure) guna and had to stick to many more rules for purity than any other caste.” According to her, the agenda of bashing the Brahmins is “to shame Brahmins, to make them feel guilty about their forefathers and to make them reluctant to follow their original Dharma of learning and teaching the Vedas.”
To break the rich Indic civilization dating back to thousands of years, the British created several theories. One worth mentioning is the Aryan invasion theory. Another is the Aryan Dravidian divide. In the words of Arun Upadhyay, IPS, researcher, linguist, and author of 8 books and 80 research papers, “To justify British rule in India, it was necessary to create a theory that all Indians also migrated from outside in past and ruled India. British rule was the latest version. They could not find any evidence in ancient Indian texts. Even the Greek Historians in time of Alexander wrote that India is only country where all persons are indigenous. As India was self sufficient in food and minerals, it never attacked any nation in past 15,000 years. From figure of 15,000 years, one zero was dropped and 1500 BC was declared as start of Vedic civilization of Aryans who migrated from north west.”
There are various scientifically and genetically proven theories and architectural evidences that suggest the indigenousness of Indians dating back to millions of years. This proves the Aryan invasion theory wrong. There was no North-South divide, termed Aryan Dravidian divide by ‘break India’ forces. Bashing of Brahmins by Dalits or the rise of Bhim Sena are only political agendas of further breaking India and dividing India. Here are few of the proven theories and evidences.
Whenever we speak about our ancient common origin of Homo sapien dating back to thousands of years, the Africa theory of ‘LUCY’ as our ancestors crop up in our minds. But a 1982 discovery in India proved this theory wrong. Our ancestors were not from Africa but from India! Narmada Nensis, the fossil skull of a man found in the Narmada in Madhya Pradesh proves this.
The find was in the boulder conglomeration of the Narmada river, Indian geologist Arun Sonakia discovered the only known fossil of a human ancestor from South Asia. It was December 5, 1982. Place: Hathnora village in Sehore district, around 35 kilometres east of Hoshangabad in Madhya Pradesh. This fossil skull belongs to the ancestor category of Homo erectus, who preceded Homo sapiens. They colonized the earth from 1.8 million to 200,000 years ago. The most tantalising fossil discovery of a human ancestor!
The age of Narmada Nensis, according to Arun Sonakia is 500,000 to 600,000 years old. The fossil skull is not even a full skull. It is rather, a skull cap with a little bit of orbital roof. Dating of the skull is corroborated by animals found along with the fossil. Other factors that helped Sonakia determine the date are features of the fossil skull and palaeo-magnetic dating studies done at the Geological Survey of India.
According to a scientific and archaeological evidence, civilizations existed in India 75,000 years ago. The archaeological site of Jwalapuram proves this. According to the Toba catastrophe theory, there were traces of hominid habitation before and after the Toba event in India.
The Toba eruptions indeed blanketed the Indian subcontinent and many regions around the volcanic site in four to six inches of ash. But excavations in South India’s Jwalapuram Valley prove that people residing in that region endured the catastrophe. There were deposits above and below the ash layer where sets of stone tools were found by archaeologists. These stone artifacts were buried in layers of sediments just below the ash layer, proving the existence of ancient Vedic civilization.
Gene D. Matlock’s Analysis
According to Gene D. Matlock, who is best known for his books on his views of the history of religion India once ruled the entire world and that the American Indians were immigrants from India. Gene D. Matlock has delved on the history of humans and religion in several of his books, namely What Strange Mystery Unites the Turkish Nations, India, Catholicism, and Mexico?, Jesus and Moses Are Buried in India, Birthplace of Abraham and the Hebrews, India Once Ruled the Americas!
In the opinion of Gene D. Matlock, the Vedas tell us about Patala or “The Underworld” which the ancient Hindus called Meso-America. They mention the flight of Garuda (the eagle) taking the Nagas (snakes) there in its beak. The Ramayana tells us why Kubera dumped incorrigible tribes there. It tells us some implausible stories as well, such as the story about Kubera keeping his head under water for ten thousand years. In reality it is telling us that the Kuberas were not a single person but a Phoenician (Middle Eastern Puni and Indian Pani), a mariner caste who plied the seas for that amount of time. When a ship sailing out to sea disappears into the horizon, it looks as if it is sinking under water.
Gene D. Matlock further wrote, “The legends and myths of the Meso-Americans support the Vedas in this respect. As I have previously stated, the image on the Mexican flag of an eagle with a snake in its beak commemorates the arrival of the Nagas in Meso-America. But yet, we are always somewhat skeptical of such myths. How can we convince ourselves? We can be totally confident that India and the Kurus or Turks discovered America if we’ll quit thinking that Mt. Meru is a ‘mystical mountain’ but just mankind’s first world map”
According to a recent article report published by dailymail.co.uk, researchers from Archaeology and Anthropology of Brown University made a fascinating discovery of an ancient Mayan ‘megalopolis’ hidden beneath thick jungle foliage in Guatemala. Scientists used Lidar technology to probe the dense jungle foliage to accurately map out the structures hidden beneath. Going by Matlock’s research on Meso-Americans, who were originally from India, this discovery of Maya settlements in Gautemala suggests that these ancient civilizations were from India.
Research from Harvard
Researchers from Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Public Health, Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT in collaboration with indigenous scientists from Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) submitted a research paper on ancestral Indian populations. This report was published in the Times of India. This paper refutes the north-south divide. It proves the Aryan Dravidian divide to be a myth SCIENTIFICALLY!!!
The research paper points out about the existence of a genetic relationship between all Indians irrespective of the north and south, east and west. Hence the hullaballoo created about the Aryan Dravidian theory stands null. How can there be a divide when genetic relationship exists between the two?
As per the this report, “the study analysed 500,000 genetic markers across the genomes of 132 individuals from 25 diverse groups from 13 states. All the individuals were from six-language families….it was impossible to distinguish between castes and tribes since their genetics proved they were not systematically different.”
Time and again, there have been debates and researches on the Aryan invasion and Aryan Dravidian theories. All researches prove these theories to be myth.
300 BC Book Indica by Megasthenes
Greek authors in time of Alexander wrote firmly that India was only country where all people were indigenous. Megasthenes, the Greek ambassador to India around 300 BC, wrote in his book Indica that India, being of enormous size when taken as a whole, is peopled by races both numerous and diverse, of which not even one was originally of foreign descent, but all were evidently indigenous. The book points out that India did not receive any colony from abroad.
According to the book Indica, there was no caste system in ancient India. 7 types of division of labour have been described, not caste. The book documents India as a free society, indicating there were no slaves and no forced labor in Indian society.
What History Says
Ramayana (5677-5577BCE) speaks of Shri Rama from north having same culture throughout the Vedic lands of Tamil Nadu. The Pandyan kings are mentioned to have attended Arjuna’s wedding (Mahabharata 3162 BCE). Rajarajendra Cholan went by ship to Konark temple and then onwards by land to Ayodhya and then Badrinath Kedarnath and was felicitated by all kings enroute including the King of Nepal. Kokkula Vikramaditya of Kalyani of 7th century AD had Kalhana as his court scribe.
There is nothing north and south except difference in languages which was mangled by attacks of Mlechhas starting in India in Sindh in the year 715 A.D. There are references in the Vedas, Puranas and other ancient scriptures about the similarity of culture across Bharat. Hence no question of Aryan invasion, Dravidian identity or Aryan Dravidian divide!
