Genetic study on Aryan non-Invasion!

The following link provides a concise view on the genetic studies conducted by 9 different groups of eminent scientists in the past decade.
All these studies invariably dispute the Aryan Invasion theory.

These studies establish that India provided a common gene pool that was ancestral to all the diverse maternal European and American lineages.
It seems India has served as an incubator for further spread of human race.
The Indian gene pool traces its origin in Africa as early as 50,000 years ago and from this gene pool only, further migrations have happened to the rest of the places in Europe.

Within the Indian gene pool, there is no difference in terms of Y chromosome, between tribes and castes and communities. There is no difference regionally and linguistically.

Details of the studies and results can be read here.

--> The findings are in tandem with what is being repeatedly written in this blog.
The Indian land mass originally called as Aryavartha or Jambhoodweepa was huge and spread in the southern part of the equator. Daksha prajapathy was the ruler of this place according to puranas. The previous manvanthra had happened in that region. Any manvanthra stretches to 30 crore years. The present manvanthra (7th manvanthra in which we are in the 28th Chathur maha yuga) started 11 crore years ago. This means the present type of human evolution started 11 crore years ago.

At that time the entire land mass of Jambhoodweepa had been one with Australia, Africa and Indonesia. The Caucasian origin is noted in Africa in the genetic studies. This tallies with beings such as Kubera and daithyas who lived in Kusha dweepa which is the present day Africa (there is an archeological evidence of Kuber, city of gold in Africa). Along with them had existed the Negroids.

The types of people has been mentioned by Bhaskara II, in Siddhantha Shiromani. He says that there were 4 races of people, devas, asuras, manushyas and daityas.
He quotes this from much earlier texts which had become extinct even by his times.
The asuras were dark in colour and daithyas were fair in complexion.
In addition there had been Danavas who were asuras with fair complexion. Maya was a Danava.
Like this different types of races had existed in this southern land.

But the archeologically proven volcanic eruption in Indonesia around 80,000 years ago and the continuing movement of the Lemuria towards north (this started 80 lakh years ago) accompanied with earthquakes etc resulted in fissures in the land.
The land had moved north, along with the people who once shared their land with those in Africa and Australia.
That is how the origins can be traced to Africa.
I do not think a 'migration' from Africa happened. I wonder why there was a need for migration at a time when land forms were close and non-ripped. People existed in the vast land mass and had easily moved throughout. Here we should not think of the land mass of the present day. Today the Indian sub continent is moving northward at the rate of 9 metres per century. Just imagine where it would have been some 50 or 80,000 years ago.

At a time of 80k years ago the rate of movement must have been even more. At present, the movement is too restricted and slowed down due to the already – reached limits of pushing the Russian plate. This land mass south of the Himalayas which contained Kumari must have been the jambhoo dweepa (naavalam theevu) , now known as a mythical Lemuria.

From Sangam texts we know that India was spread far down the south. The civilization that dominated the south then must have continued but faced threats when the seas rose due to Ice age coming to an end. This is mentioned as the first deluge in Tamil texts.

Sangam texts also reveal that the Bay of Bengal was a ‘dug-out-sea’. This sea in the east is known in Tamil texts as ‘Thodu kadal’ It means “thOndappatta kadal” or ‘the sea that is dug’. It was dug by the sons of sagara which came to be filled by the Ganges.

This takes us to look at the time of Ganges. Ganges came down in the times of Bhageeratha which was some 1000 years before Rama. Astronomically Rama’s time has been dated around 7000 BC. So Ganges came at around 8000 BC.
It was only with the coming of the Ganges, the Ganga sagar or Bay of Bengal was carved out on the landmass (refer my posts on Ram sethu)

Respected Maam,

Had some queries. Sorry if it sounds silly.

1. Whats the difference between Asuras and Daityas? Daityas come from Diti, Danavas from Danu. Where do Asuras come from?.
2. What's the difference between Asuras and Negroids?
3. In this article you had mentioned about Kubera (being in Africa) But somehwere in this blog we had talked about Kubera being a brother of Ravana and lived during 7000 BC. He was in Lanka and overthrown and moved to NOrth (Sibera etc..) to join the Devas. The timelines seem so different as well. Please clarify

@ Vaghula,

1. Daityas and Danavas by their name reveal their origin from a woman. Asuras are the alternate of Suras. Asuras and Suras derive their name from the region of occupation, namely southern hemisphere and northern hemisphere respectively. This explains the difference between Daityas and Asuras.

2. It is possible to assume that Negroids were mentioned as Asuras, but only of those whose location is to the south of equator. Their skin colour also could have been indicated, as Asuras are opposite of Suras who enjoy sunlight and light. And Sura refers to Sun.

3. Yes. I have given two notions on Kubera, of which his kinship with Ravana is revealed by texts, but African location is through archaeology. Africa was known as Kusha dweepa and was full of riches (mineral). The name of a place as Kuber is seen in this light. It makes me wonder whether the Kuberas ( as people) were inhabitants of Kusha dweepa and Kebera of the texts was a descendant of the Kuberas. Kubera and Ravana were half brothers and their mothers were from different descents from the southern hemisphere. Later on Kubera moved to the Himalayas.

As you progress with the timeline of my blog you will come across articles with more details.
