Pandit Duli Chand, Vidyapati Brahman of Agra, Indo-Aryan Type, Plate 25


“This is a fine picture of the old fashioned, learned Brahman of Northern India, whose life is devoted to the study of Sanskrit literature and the observance of an intricate form of ritual. He has been little influenced by the western culture. He wears wooden clogs, held between his toes by a brass peg, because the touch of leather is a source of ceremonial pollution. He carries a rosary, but the help of which he mutters prayers or holy texts, and recites the names of the Deity whom he worships. He is in many ways like the Nambuthiri Brahman of Malabar, the most primitive type of Brahman. But the latter have preserved their isolation more successfully than their Northern Brethern, who have lived for centuries under foreign governments. His title Vidyapati implies that he is a master of learning.”


My comments: – The author has bracketed him with the Indo-Aryan type without any rhyme or reason. May be his skin colour is fairer than the black “Dravidians”. His nose and other features are like any other person in India. Like him the Sikhs, Buddhists, Muslims and Catholic Christian mutters prayers. So that is not a criterion of “Aryanism”. The author says he was least influenced by the Western culture. Yes. The hill tribes were also least affected by the Western culture. That is not a criterion for “Aryanism”. He does not wear anything leather. Yes. Even the animal rights people don’t wear anything leather in London and New York. So that is also not a criterion for Aryanism. Even before the DNA tests and genetic tests were available, foreigners divided the entire universe into many groups according to their whims and fancies.

Brahmins changed a very little; yes, the hill tribes also have least changes. How come the hill tribes have hundreds of groups without many similarities?


There are eight types of Brahmins. Even the hair style of Soziya Brahmins, and Dikshitas are different. Why? The fact of the matter is these differences don’t decide which race you belong to. Foreigners took whatever suited to their theories and hid the other important factors. Even modern genetic research is inconclusive. If the appearance is the decisive factor, then Indus Valley civilization is not Dravidian. The skeletons discovered in the Indus Valley are of Punjabi type.

Sutaars, carpenters of Bengal, Mongolo Dravidian Type, Plate 26:

“The carpenters of Bengal, like other craftsmen, hold a low rank, and Brahmans will not take water from their hands. Besides ordinary work in wood, they carve conch-shells into bracelets, make images of gods and paint religious pictures. They are probably recruited from the non-Aryan or indigenous races. Their chief object of worship is Visvakarma, the Divine architect of the universe, sometimes represented as a white man with three eyes and bearing a club; but more usually he is symbolised by the tools used by the house holder, which are set up and decorated with flowers; offerings are presented to them, and the god is besought to favour his votaries in their profession during the coming year.”


My comments: taking water or not taking water from a particular group or sect wont decide the race. Orthodox Vaishnavite Brahmins wont even take anything from orthodox Saivite Brahmins. Vaishnavite Brahmins will close the doors when saivite Gods taken in procession through their streets in Tamil Nadu. So this wont decide Mongoloid or Dravidianism. Author Risley himself was puzzled and so he created a mixed Mongolo- Dravidian Type. This is a typical example to show how Whiteman fooled Hindus hundred years ago. Hindu scholars who wanted posts in educational institutions played second fiddle to them. When the foreigners are puzzled, they created newer and newer groups to shut the mouths of intelligent people.


These people do not know that the Tamil Cities of Sangam age were arranged in caste order. It is very clear in Sangam Tamil literature and Tamil epic Silppadikaram.

Tamil Brahmins like the great poet also cut conches and made bangles. Those who did not recite the Vedas were considered Vratya Brahmins. So cutting conch shells to make bracelets won tdecide the race. Either.

Viswakarma is a Vedic God. Those who worship him in Tamil Nadu, the non -Brahmin Aasaari caste, wears sacred thread like Brahmins!


Mochis, Shoe makers of Bengal, Mongolo-Dravidian Type, Plate 27:-


“The Mochis or Muchis are a branch of the Chamaar caste, whose business is tanning leather. Their association with this material renders them impure in the estimation of high caste Hindus. The Mochis’ chief business is making the slipper like shoes worn by their customers. They also, as in the illustration, manufacture drums. The covering is made up of goat skins, while strips of cow hide are used for tightening the parchment. In all native drums, at one or both ends, black circles are inscribed with a paste of iron filings and rice in order to improve the pitch. Muchi women never acts as midwives, like those of the Chamaar caste.”


My comments: Here is another hollow argument of the foreigners. Several types of drums are listed by the oldest book in the world, the Rig Veda. If they are untouchables, because they dealt with leather, that caste existed during the Vedic times as well. I have already written about the biggest drum in the world – Bhumi Dundubi – from the Rig Veda. There is no reference to pollution or segregation of the drummers in the Vedas. In Sangam Tamil literature Royal Drum is considered a sacred object. The issue of cleanliness and hygiene is considered very important in every culture. Even today Hindu doctors and nurses consider them impure until they take a shower. They wont do cooking or praying. It is all about cleanliness, not about Mongolo-Dravidianism. All through the Sanskrit literature we see all types of craftsmen with due respect given to them. Even today no one can touch the queen or king in England. You have to bend and salute them. These are all customs not racial dividing lines.
