Kalhana, the 12th century historian and author of Rajatarangni mentioned DRAVIDIAN in three places. There is a very interesting story about a Dravidian magician in his book Rajatarangini (River of Kings).

 

It is a true story according to Kalhana and it happened during the reign of Jayapida (751 CE).

 

From Fourth Taranga (Chapter) of Rajatarangini:

On one occasion, to the king who had acquired glory in all directions a certain person of divine figure spoke in a dream with folded hands:

“O King! in your realm I have been residing in comfort with my relatives; I am the Lord of the Nagas called Mahapadma, I come to you for asylum.

 

‘A certain Dravidian spell-monger is trying to draw me away from here in order to sell me for money in the Territory of Maru (desert) which yearns for water.

If you save me from him, I shall show in your country, a hill which produces god ore. The king having heard it in the dream, despatched spies in all directions the very next day. King’s spies found him and brought him before the king (Jayapida).

 

Ulur Lake Near Sri Nagar, Kashmir, India (also known as Wular)

When he confessed his intention, the king pardoned him. The king asked the Dravidian spell-monger (magician):

“How is it possible for you to draw out this Naga, who excels in spiritual power,  from the interior of the lake which extends for several Yojanas?”

Dravidian magician said to the king, “O, King! Inconceivable are the powers of the spell (mantra). If you desire to see it, come and see the marvel.

 

 

The king followed the magician to the lake. The Dravidian muttered incantations and then shot some arrows. The lake became dry. Then the king could see a snake (Naga) about a span in size with a human face, which was wriggling in the mud surrounded by several small snakes.

 

O King! I am going to catch him now. But the king ordered him not to catch the snake. At once the Dravidian spell monger (magician) withdrew the power of his spell and the lake became full. (The Vulur/Wular lake was called the Mahapadma lake after this naga who was supposed to live in it).

 

King disposed the magician by paying him some money.

 

The king was expecting the Naga to show him the Hill of Gold ore. But it did not happen. When the king asked him about it Mahapadma Naga said, “I asked for asylum; you did not give me asylum; but you drove away the spell-monger. So I will show you the hill of copper. When the king got the directions to it, he excavated copper from Kramarajya Hill and struck a hundred crores of Dinnaras (coins)”.

 

Dravidian Brahmins

In another chapter Kalhana referred to Dravids (Dravidian Brahmins in Kashmir). Until Max Muller and Caldwell gave the wrong connotations for the words Dravidian and Aryan, the words meant only A South Indian (Dravida) , A cultured person or ascetics of Himalayas ( aryan) in Indian literature.

Following is the reference found in Eighth Taranga (chapter)

“The daughter’s son of the chief of Karapatha settled in this place (Simhapura). Brahmans born in Indus region as well as Dravid Brahmans who formerly lived in the centre of siddhacchatra.”

 

Translator R S Pandit adds a footnote: As late as the 12th century Dravid Brahmans are mentioned as students in Kashmir.

According to foreign “scholars”, all dark-skinned people, particularly tribal people, are Dravidians. But I have been saying that they are neither Dravidians nor Aryans, because no such thing is found in Sangam Tamil literature and Vedic literature. According to foreign writers these were the people once occupied Indus valley cities; but I have been arguing these people have nothing to do with Indus valley Civilization. These were the people who have been living in tis country from Bhimbetka Cave (Madhya Pradesh) days along with the Vedic culture. There are hundreds of tribes in India with different customs. There is no uniform culture. The surprising thing about the tribes is that they tie MANGALA SUTRAM (Thaali in Tamil) around bride’s neck. So, following piece gives a severe blow to Aryan-Dravidian theories—swami

 

Following is an excerpt from ‘The Hindu at Home’ written by Rev J E Padfield written in 1908.

 

Hitherto I have been speaking of things as they are in the Telugu country. Farther south, in the Tamil speaking parts, there many varieties the marriage rites amongst the various aboriginal tribes.

 

Vellalar and Milk Bowl

The Karakat Vellalans, for instance, who live on and near the Palani Mountains in South India, have very peculiar marriage customs. The ceremony is performed in a booth (Pandal), erected for the purpose before the house door of the bride. The bride and bridegroom are seated on the floor with their faces towards the east. A lamp kept burning on a stool near where they sit, whilst a measure of grain and a rude image of Ganésha made of cow dung, is placed near them. After both have prostrated themselves before the symbol, the bride- groom receives the mangalasutram from some of the relatives present, which he proceeds to tie around the bride’s neck. At the same time a bowl of milk is brought, in which a few leaves of the peepul tree have been steeped. The relatives on both sides then sprinkle some of this milk upon the heads of the pair.

 

The newly-married couple then prostrate themselves before their several relatives, and the day’s ceremony is concluded with a feast and a formal distribution of betel. This concludes the marriage ceremony. On the following day the bridegroom gives a grand feast, when various marriage presents are distributed to the bride and her relatives.

 

Maravans and Conch Shells

Amongst the Maravans, a people dwelling mostly in the extreme south-east of the peninsula, the marriage ceremonies are very strange and unusual. After a marriage has been agreed upon by the principal members of two families, a few of the relatives of the intended bridegroom go to the house of the bride, and then, with or without her consent and, even perhaps without having sought the consent of the bridegroom they tie upon her neck the mangalasutram whilst conch shells are blown loudly outside They then escort the bride to the house of her husband. A feast is given which lasts for several days.

 

Processions are formed through the streets and a cocoanut broken before an image of Ganésha. These and a few other one ceremonies conclude the marriage rites. There is one curious custom which must be noted when these people have not the means to pay for the feast and other expenses. They simply tie on the mangalasutram, upon which the parties live together as man and wife. The other ceremonies, however, must be gone through at some time or other, when means admit of it. Should the husband happen to die before the defect has been supplied, the friends and relatives at once borrow money, if they have none by them, and proceed to complete the marriage ceremonies in the presence and on behalf of the corpse. The dead body supposed to be the bridegroom is placed on a seat with the woman by it. After this gruesome ceremony, the mangala- sutram is taken off the woman and she is free, as a widow, to remarry.

 

Kallans and Boomerangs

Amongst the Kallans, an important caste in the south, a marriage alliance depends upon consanguinity, and it is entirely irrespective of the wishes of either parties to the contract, or even of their parents. When a wedding has been fixed upon, the sister of the bridegroom, with a present in her hand, goes to the house of the parents of the bride and ties some horse-hair around the bride’s neck. She then takes her, accompanied by some of her relatives, to the house of the bridegroom where a feast is prepared. After the feast the pair are conducted to the house of the bridegroom where a solemn exchange is made of vallari thadis or boomerangs. Another feast is then given in the bride’s house, and the bride is presented by her parents with some rice and a hen. The bride and bridegroom, now husband and wife, then repair to his home and the marriage ceremony is complete.

 

Tottiyans and Bullock-sadle

 

There is a caste of cultivators in the south called Tottians, who perform their weddings as follows. Two booths are erected, outside the limits of the village, and in each of them is placed a bullock-saddle, and upon these are seated the bride and bridegroom, whilst the relatives and friends congregate around. The attendant priest addresses the assembly, after which the price of the bride, usually so much grain, is carried under a canopy of white cloth to the house of the bride’s father. This procession, which is heralded by music and dancing, is met by the friends of the bride who receive the grain, and they all go together into the house. Here betel is distributed and mutual congratulations exchanged, after which the whole party is led to the bride’s booth by the priest.

 

Arrived there, the priest receives at the hand of the bridegroom a small chain of black beads and a tiny circlet of gold. The priest then proceeds to tie the chain round the bride’s neck and attaches the circlet of gold to her forehead, with which ceremony the marriage is complete. This is succeeded by the usual feasting, without which it does not seem possible for a marriage to take place anywhere.

 

Poleiyans

 

There are people of a very low status like the Poleiyans, for instance, whose marriage ceremony merely consists of a declaration of consent made by both parties at a feast to which all the relatives are invited. I now proceed to describe the nuptial rites of the hill tribes of Southern India which are of the most simple and primitive character.

 

Todas: Foot on Bride’s Head!

 

Amongst the Todas early betrothals are common, and the agreement is ratified by an interchange of buffaloes. When the time comes for the marriage to be consummated there is another exchange of buffaloes.

The only ceremony is that the woman bows down before the man and he places his foot upon her head. This humiliating acknowledgment of submission on the part of woman is not what one would have expected in a tribe where polyandry is practised. The wife is installed in her position by proceeding to perform some household duties, such as cooking and drawing water.

Kotas

The Kotas, a tribe dwelling on the slopes of the Nilgiri Hills, perform their marriages in the following manner. It is usual for the couple to be betrothed when they are quite young and, when the girl becomes of a marriageable age, she is sent for to the house of her future father-in-law. The usual marriage feast is given, followed by music and dancing, and the ceremony is concluded by the bridegroom’s mother tying the mangalasutram round the bride’s neck.

 

Kurumbas: No Marriage rites!!

Amongst the Kurambas, who are also dwellers on the Nilgiri slopes, there seem to be no marriage rites whatever. When a couple decide to come together, or even after they may have been living together for some time, a feast is given to their friends and the marriage is complete.

Irulas

With the Irulas, another Nilgiri tribe, there is no marriage ceremony, neither is there any previous betrothal. When a youth comes of age to choose a wife, he finds one for himself and the matter is ended.

 

Badagas

The Badagas, who are dwellers on the Nilgiri plateau are said to be the descendants of Canarese colonists. Amongst this people marriages are contracted without any special rites and the marriage tie is held by them very loosely. After a couple have agreed to come together, a time of probation is allowed during which either of the parties may draw back and decline to go further with the connection. A man may make several of these temporary alliances before definitely decides upon a partner for life. There is some feasting when a definite alliance has been agreed to, and that is all there is by way of rites and ceremonies.

Tamils have superstitions about sneezing, crows, lizard chirping and fluttering of eyes. It is seen in 2000-year-old Sangam Tamil literature.

 

Tamil Panchang (traditional calendars with Hindu festival days etc.) has got two pages devoted to Pancha Pakshi Shastra (Prediction by Five Birds) and Lizard Predictions. Nobody has done any scientific research into it to prove it or disprove it. The Bird astrology divides the day into five parts allocating one each to vulture, owl, crow, cock and peacock. Actually there is more to it. They tell you what would happen depending upon the nature of flights of birds. It is an interesting area for research students. Brhat Samhita of Varahamihira gives information about wagtail bird predictions.

If we go to the Lizard astrology page, the Panchang divides it into two parts. It tells you what would happen if a lizard falls on you and if the lizard calls (makes sound). It tells you something good or bad would happen depending upon the part of the body it touches or the direction of the sound. Big tabular columns are in the Panchang for birds and lizards predictions.

Lizards in Tamil Sangam Literature
The sound made by the lizards served as omens for the Tamils. Sangam period Tamil poet Kavan mullai putanar says,” the lizard on the Kalli tree makes its characteristic tickling sound and is taken as predicting the events to the wayfarers (Agam 151). Another poet says that the travellers paused a while hearing the tickling sound of the lizard (Agam 387). Even wild animals followed lizard sounds! A boar was just about to enter a millet field, but it went back on hearing the tickling sound of the lizard (Agam 186).
More references:–Agam 9, 151, 289, 387; Narrinai 98, 169,3 33, 9.
Comets

Fluttering Eyes

 

Flutter of eyes also is taken into account to find what is going to happen next. This is supported in Sanskrit literature as well. Tamils are not alone in it. One thing is common in all these strange predictions. Left is good for women and right is good for men. Probably the logic for this is Ardhanari principle of Lord Shiva, i.e. Shiva’s left side is shared by Parvathy. Bible also supports it by saying the woman is made from the left rib of man (For more, please read my Sanskrit in Bible posts)

 

Sneeze in Tamil Veda Tirukkural

sneezing

If a person sneezes they say “Bless you” in western countries. Actually it started in India. We say Dirgayush (Long live). We have enough proof for this in Tamil and Sanskrit literature.

Tirukkural, the most famous book of the Tamils, says in Chapter FEIGNED:

When I continue to be receding, he sneezed and thought I would then wish him long life (Kural 1312)

I sneezed; “Live long”, she blessed. Then suddenly she wept saying, “You sneezed thinking of some other lady” (Kural 1317)

I stifled my sneeze. She wept saying, “Is it to hide from me the thought of thee in the mind of thy beloved” (Kural 1318)

This is based on the belief that you sneeze when someone who loves you thinks about you. If some sneezes then the Tamils wished them long life, says Tiruvalluvar in his Tirukkural. Even number and odd number of sneezes also make big difference. Even number of sneezes is good.

I want to add what Arthur Miles say about these superstitions in his book:-

 

Lizard Chirps
“Superstition plays an important part in daily life. The chirping or fall of the lizard; the shadow of a bird in flight; the flutter of a leaf; the first object one sees when awakening in the morning; are of the utmost importance in the sense of superstitious observance.

 

The lizard formula is so long and complicated that I wonder how any Indian can remember it. Everything depends upon the number of chirps, and the direction from which they come. As it is not unusual for two or more lizards to be chirping from different directions at the same time, deductions become rather involved. If a lizard chirps twice from the south-east on Monday, it portends rebellion. On Friday, however, the meaning is that the hearer will be decorated. The chirps which on Tuesday indicate enmity, on Saturday denote relationship with a new woman.

lizard

The lizard is a courageous little reptile, and to avoid danger or to escape from a palm squirrel, he will not hesitate to throw himself from a rafter to the floor. His fall augurs good or evil, to whoever happens to be underneath. If he falls on one’s head it means death; if on the eyes, it indicates prison. It is lucky if he falls on the forehead or the right arm, for this means coronation or general good health. Falling on the lips or chin is not so good, since there is a chance of losing money or of receiving priestly punishment. On the left arm the fall means great sexual enjoyment, but should it fall on the penis one will suffer penury and want. These are only a few of the lizard superstitions.

 

Another indication of good or bad influences is contained the sneeze. Should one sneeze but once it indicates failure but sneezing twice is decidedly auspicious. There are employed a number of absurd antics in order to produce the second sneeze.

 

Some friends and I were sitting under a tree in my garden in Mysore, when a leaf fluttered down. Before it could alight on a lady’s shoulder an Indian surgeon, attached to a regiment stationed in the district, diverted it so that it fluttered to the ground. To do this he jumped up, and overturned a small table. The Surgeon explained that we were sitting under a tamarind tree, which in itself was a very unwise thing to do. After examining the leaf, however, his face lighted up and a smile displaced apprehension. When he had apologized for turning over the table, he told the lady that nothing disastrous would have happened even if the leaf had touched her, as it was not a dead one. Had it been a dead leaf, some dire calamity, which nothing could avert, would have followed.

 

A caste of Tamil artisans pays particular attention to what they see in the early morning, especially on their New Year’s Day. The women make it their duty to ensure on New Year’s Day their husbands, on waking, see only objects of good omen. Ashes, firewood, and oil, being unlucky, are carefully screened from view. (Fruits, gold coins, flowers, mirror, new clothes are arranged on a plate; they are considered good)

seven-fire

Unlucky Seven! Koravas Supestition!

The Koravas watch for omens before starting out on one of their house breaking expeditions.

Water standing perfectly still is a good omen, but it is unfortunate to see widows, pots of milk, a bull bellowing, or a dog urinating. On the other hand, it is very lucky to hear a bull bellowing at the time of the criminal operation.

 

The number seven is considered ominous, and a burglary expedition seldom consists of seven men. It is even unlucky utter the number seven. A man who has just been released from jail, or a newly married man, is unlucky for criminal excursions. Should the number seven be unavoidable when starting out, the house-breaking instrument is considered the eighth member of the gang.

 

The women of this caste resort to divination, if their husbands are sometime absent and they fear the men have been apprehended. A long strand is pulled out of a broom, and at one end of it are tied several smaller strands, which have been dipped in oil. If the strand floats in water, there is no need to worry but if it sinks, the wife starts out at once to find her husband.

 

The eighteenth day of a month is the luckiest day for committing crimes. A successful criminal adventure on this day is sure to be followed by good luck. Sundays, while they auspicious for weddings, are unlucky for crimes. Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays are unlucky until the afternoon for the beginning of burglary, as is also the day of the new moon. Fridays are not suitable for breaking into the homes of Brahmans.

 

Khondh Tribe’s Superstitions!
If a Kondh meets a woman, whether married or unmarried, when he is starting out on a hunting expedition, he will turn back. He will then make a fresh start, waving every woman that he meets out of his way. If a Kondh woman is menstruating, her husband, sons and brothers will not hunt game until her period is over. The men believe that they will come across no animals at such a time. The Kondh will not kill a crow because it would amount to killing a friend. According to one of the folk tales of the caste, soon after the creation of the world there lived a family of an aged man, a woman, and five children. Plague carried off the children one after the other in quick succession, and the parents being too old and too poor to take the necessary steps for the cremation of the bodies, they were obliged to throw them on the ground a little distance from their home. Vishnu then appeared to them one night in a dream, and promised to create the crow so that it might devour the dead bodies.

Superstition of the Aborigines

Many of the aborigines believe that they can transform themselves into tigers or snakes. Half the soul is supposed to leave the body, and in the guise of a tiger or snake it kill an enemy or satisfy its hunger by feeding on cattle in the jungle. During this time such people are said to remain dull and listless, and to shirk any sort of work. It is also believed soul wanders during sleep, when it may enter the body of a tiger or some other wild animal.

(Please read First part of this article and continue here:London Swaminathan)

1.When white skinned people started reading our Tamil and Sanskrit scriptures and started writing in ENGLISH, that too, with Christian names like John, Hart, William, David, July, Mary, Wendy we thought all of them are ‘’SCHOLARS’’!!!

2.Then came the ‘Ph.D.wallas’ challenging all the old views. Just because they have the big title DOCTOR in front of their names, we thought they are all ‘’SCHOLARS’’!!! (Read below how one ‘scholar’ insulted Kalidasa).

 

3. But both these groups knew that if they say anything against the established systems and age old beliefs, all of us will join together and smash them. So they first sowed the seeds of division. It is a slow poison that will kill us all in course of time. All of you knew what Lord Macaulay openly said the reason for introducing ENGLISH education in this country (India).

4.First they introduced Aryan Dravidian Race theory. There is no basis for this in Tamil or Sanskrit literature. Slowly they introduced Munda, Tribes and aborigines in to it. They know ‘’Samsaya Atma Vinasyati’’= Doubting Thomasses are destroyed.

 

5.Then they confused us by giving various dates in Indian History. Rig Veda is dated between 6000 BC and 900 BC by various foreign scholars! Kalidasa is given a date between 2nd century BC and 5th century AD. One so called ‘’scholar’’ even fixed the date of Kalidasa in Gupta period and called Kalidasa a Copy Cat! Kalidasa copied a lot from Tamil poets and Prakrit gath Sapta sati, he said! Another ‘’scholar’’ said Kalidasa copied from Asvagosha! I have proved them wrong in my ten part article on Kalidasa and Tamil literature. Kalidasa became world famous because of his new similes and images and not by COPYING!

 

6.They told us Tamils came from the Mediterranean area and Aryans came from Central Asia. They linked Tamil with Finnish and Turkish! Turkey is full of Vedic monuments. The oldest inscription with names of Vedic Gods was discovered in Turkey-Syria (Bogazkoi) area dated around 1400 BC. The oldest Sanskrit (Mitanni) names are in Syria-Iraq area. Kanchi Shankaracharya said in one of his lectures, ‘’don’t think we went there to spread our religion. It was there all over the world. That is why we call our religion Sanatan Dharma’’.

 

7. Slowly, cleverly and cunningly they introduced colour skin to Hindu Gods. They said Tamil Skanda/Murugan is different from Aryan Skanda. Tamil Shiva is different from Aryan Rudra! Those who read Tamil hymns will have a good laugh at those ‘SCHOLARS’, where Murugan and Shiva are red and Vishnu is bluish black. They said all villages Gods are of local origin. But the fact of the matter is all names are in Sanskrit! Read Kanchi Paramacharya’s seven part book ‘Voice of the Divine’’ (Deivathin Kural in Tamil).

 

8. Slowly and cunningly they introduced the word ‘’Interpolations’’. Whenever and wherever they wanted they said ‘’it is interpolated’’. The ever changing language will have something introduced at any time in History by enthusiasts. Then they will take the latest one and date it as 5th century or ninth century AD where as the original would have belonged to 5th century BC. They did it to all our Puranas and epics.

 

9. They sowed a seed of doubt about Kaliyuga and challenged all our dates. They projected one Indra in the whole history of Hinduism and attributed everything to him. Indra (king) is a title like Pope, Dalai Lama and Shankaracharya. They made us believe one Indra did all the ‘bad’ things.

 

10. They take one or two controversial statements from a book they hate and project them as the gist of the book. Manu Dharma Shastra is a typical example. Leaving all the passages where he praised women, they projected him as Anti woman by giving one sloka. They never talk about interpolations in the scriptures of other religions!

Sarasvati

Discovery of Mighty Saraswati river proved Aryan Dravidian Race theory wrong.

 

Egypt,Babylonia,Greece,China & Israel had Kings

11. They said India knew no king before the Nanda Dynasty leaving a gap for 2300 years in Indian history. Puranas and epics give a long list of kings including the kings who ruled INDUS VALLEY. The foreigners said that they are all not reliable where as Egypt, Babylonia, Greek, Chinese and Israel kings were real! Indians are stupid till this day to retain the old History books. They still think they had no kings before Maurya Chandra Gupta or the Nandas!! Rig Veda, Ramayana, Mahabharata and Puranas give a long list of kings.

12. They wrote Tamil culture is different from  ‘’Aryans’’, where as the Sangam literature praises all that is Hindu every 10th line. There is no verse or passage without a Sanskrit word or a Hindu theme. I have read all the 30,000 lines umpteen times. I can quote thousands of references about Veda, Hindu Gods Yaga/fire ceremony, Puja etc.

Tamils did not even have a word for heart. They simply used Sanskrit word Hrudaya ( This gave the English word heart and Tamil word iruthayam). Ancient Tamils never hated Sanskrit. They considered Tamil and Sanskrit as two eyes and their literature say both came from Lord Shiva. Foreigners selected the passages which suited them and hid lot of facts about Tamils. Sanskrit also borrowed Tamil words without any hesitation.

 

13. They made us believe that Indians were migrants where as our old literature say that Indians went to different parts of the world to spread culture and civilization (e.g 1300 year Hindu rule in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Burma, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia). Rishis’ names are all over the world Adriatic (Atri Maharishi) sea, Caspian (Kashyapa maharishi) sea, California (Kapila Aranya)! Read my article Is California- Kapila Aranya?. I have based it on Kanchi Shankaracharya’s talk.

14. Foreigners gave credits for all the discoveries and inventions to Greeks and Babylonians contradictory to the facts in our scriptures. Even when they knew the numerals came from India, Chess came from India, they called it Arabic numerals, Persian game!! Deliberate distortions!

 

15. When passages of violence are in every scripture in the world, every literature in the world, they projected Vedic hymns as violent where as others as ‘Holy wars’. Look at the wordings!! Words like ‘River of blood ‘are found in all the literature. When they ate nothing but meat, they shed crocodile tears for the ‘’millions of creatures’’ sacrificed in the Yaga fire!! They even interpreted Samudra (Ocean) in Rig Veda as a pond! Durga as ‘Indus forts’!! Shiva also destroyed forts like Indra! Is HE a Dravidian or Aryan?

 

16. When they first excavated Harappa and Mohanjadaro  on the banks of Indus (Sindhu) river we called it Indus civilization. Now we have excavated over 200 places in Punjab, Haryana, Rajathan, Gujarat and Delhi. This is the largest of the ancient civilizations. We have explored Dwaraka under sea with artefacts dated 3000 BC. Bhaba Atomic Research Institute scientists have proved the existence of mighty river Saraswati that ran 5000 years ago.All these prove our Puranas, Epics and Vedas were right about our ancient beginnings. As long as one believes in Aryan Dravidian division, everything will be misty, confusing and mysterious.

 

17. On one hand they insulted, degraded and undervalued all that is Indian, but on the other hand they plundered all our artefacts including Kohinoor diamond. The best of our treasures are in London, Paris and Tehran.

18.They divided the languages of the world as they wished and showed Sanskrit as the youngest of the Indo European group. On the contrary, parents of Sanskrit speakers went to different parts of Europe and gave them languages. It is not vice versa (E.g. Zend Avesta  is far down the chronological table.)

19. They confused the Indian intellectuals by wrongly fixing the date for iron and horse. Latest discoveries around the world pushed the date of both back by 5000 to 10000 years. Ayas (Aes in Latin and Pon in Tamil) was used for many

metals including iron.

swaraka under sea

 

Discovery of Dwaraka under sea proved Aryan Dravidian race theory wrong.

 

Insult to Dravidians !

20.From the very beginning they misled the world by saying Indus valley was destroyed by the invading Aryans and Dravdians ran for life to the far south and to the hills!!! They projected Dravidians as ‘’cowards’’ and invading Aryans as ‘’Heroes’’. This is because white skinned foreign ‘’scholars’’ identified themselves with Aryans! They misled the world by saying the Indus language was Dravidian in structure sixty years ago and not a single word is deciphered till this day! Most ridiculous thing is that they have never discovered or disclosed ‘’Aryan and Dravidian skeletons’’ till this day. Now we know 1000s of cities and villages became deserted because of geological changes.

21. Our Puranas and Sangam Tamil literature  (see Purananuru Commentary) divided people in to 18 types including Devas, Asuras, Kinnaras, Siddhas, Gandharvas—not  Aryas and Dravidas! Our division was on the basis of their virtues and behaviour, not on skin colour or race.

 

22. If one believes in Aryan Dravidian race theory, one can’t believe in historical Ramayana and Mahabharata! They wouldn’t fit anywhere in the chronology. Aryan Race Theory created Hitler who killed millions of Hindu Gypsies and European Jews. He claimed himself Pure Aryan and used Hindu Swastika in his flags. Westerners realised that their theory was nonsense and buried it. But Indian idiots still keep this theory alive!

23. They confused us about the Vedas. Some scholars said Adharva Veda was earlier than Rig Veda and it belonged to the Dravidians. Some other scholars said it was later one. But Adharva Veda is in Sanskrit. Other scholars confused the world about Zend Avesta. They said it was written before ‘’Aryans migrated to India’’. But the latest linguistic research shows that Atharva Veda and Zend Avesta belonged to a period than Rig Veda.

24. If you are very intelligent and show the ‘’scholars’’ that Aswamedham, Rajasuyam, Soma Rasam, Fire ceremonies, Swayamvaram, caste system, Eight types of marriage, funeral ceremonies, wedding ceremonies are not the same in Indo European areas ,they will say all these were PROBABLY borrowed from Dravidians or Mundas!!! If you are more intelligent and show the ‘’Scholars’’ that certain customs exist in both the areas—from Himalayas to Kanyakumari—they will say PROBABLY they borrowed it from a common source=Pan Indian! In short, they will escape without giving a genuine answer!

 

Then, What is the truth? Indians went and civilized the barbaric Europeans. The first thing anyone learns will be the language of the cultured people. Without that no one can communicate. Then they grab certain aspects of the culture. India was more civilized than all parts of Europe according to Greeks. The Greeks started writing at least 800 years after the Vedic people. Another fact is mankind is one. We all had the same roots and so certain ancient beliefs and customs are common to all the people. This is known as Santana Dharma (Please read Kanchi Paramacharya’s lectures in Seven Volumes)

When we look at the development of human mind, thinking etc. we see Indians were far advanced than any race or clan. Even before the world started writing a book, we produced Upanishads with highest philosophy.This is another proof that we educated them. Whether it is composing poetry ,writing grammar, writing sex manual, preparing dictionary, solving mathematical problems, charting the stars, writing books, preparing Index, Yoga, Karate, all types of arts—name anything we were first. Babylonian, Egyptian, Sumerian, Greek and Chinese civilizations are in show cases of museum. Hindu civilization is a living civilization.

 

To justify what I have said above, I have written and posted already over 570 articles touching various aspects of Indus Valley Civilization and Vedic culture. Please read them to understand and appreciate my views fully.

Very soon I will upload 1.SEX IN INDUS VALLEY and 2. ARYAN HITLER & HINDU SWASTIKA.
