Dravidian speakers form the majority of the population of South India and are natively found in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, the Maldives and Sri Lanka. Dravidians are also present in Singapore or the United Arab Geographic distribution: South Asia and parts of.

The early Dravidian religion refers to a broad range of belief systems which existed in South Asia before the arrival of Indo-Aryans. Scholars do not share a uniform consensus on early Dravidian religion but many scholars associated it with Neolithic societies of South Asia which was later assimilated into migrating Indo-Aryan society leading to formation of early Indian religious and cultural.

Historical background. The standard view on the origins of the Indo-Aryans is the Indo-Aryan migration theory, which states that they entered north-western India at about BCE. An alternative view is the idea that the Aryans are indigenous to India, which challenges the standard view.

In recent times the indigenous position has come to the foreground of the public debate. All Indians belong to one ethnic group-Hindus. We all know that initially Hindu civilization grew on the banks of Saraswati river. But Saraswati river dried even before Ramayana and Mahabharata. I don’t beleive in all this Aryan or Dravidian theor.

The subject for discussion -Aryan vs Dravidian- has special significance for the Europeans, that is further highlighted by the last Text Book Revision conducted by the CA Educational Authority. The participants being the Jews, Christians Muslims and the Hindus, it was decided, with the agreement of more than 50 well known historians, that the.

Senior CCMB scientist Kumarasamy Thangarajan said there was no truth to the Aryan-Dravidian theory as they came hundreds or thousands of years after the ancestral north and south Indians had settled in India. The study analysedgenetic markers across the genomes of individuals from 25 diverse groups from 13 states.

The Aryan-Dravidian divide is largely a modern political construct. The culture of South India has been intimately woven with Sanskrit, Vedic philosophies, Vedic. I am confused. Which one is Aryan, which one is a Dravidian bird. Both are Indian birds.

Thank god. Foreign scholars did not enter this area with coloured glasses; otherwise crow would have become a Dravidian.

Once we drop this fictitious, malicious and mischievous Aryan Dravidian theory, Indus Valley script will be deciphered. Time and again, there have been debates and researches on the Aryan migration and Aryan Dravidian theories. All researches prove these theories to be myth.

Aryan-Dravidian divide: myth or fact This Dravidian and Aryan divide has been always a topic to debate on. Thus the Dravidian Karunanidhi and the Indo-European speaking Mallika Sherawat are genetically not much different or in simple terms: there is no Aryan-Dravidian divide. While no divide exists, what exists is a gradient with different groups having different levels of ANI in them, including Dravidian speakers and tribals.

RELIGION AND RITUALS From the very dawn of culture we see a close association between power, religion and ritual.
