In the research titled
"A Bayesian phylogenetic study of the Dravidian language family"
- researchers have tried to date the language using Bayesian analysis .
For those of you not aware - method of statistical inference in which Bayes' theorem is used to update
the probability for a hypothesis as more evidence or information becomes available.
It combines prior existing info with evidence from info in a sample to guide the statistical inference.

Weapons weren’t invented by @RSSorg !
It was the Vedic Aryans who invented iron & steel, they used iron tipped arrows- but the ethical Aryans prohibited smearing them with venom.
It was Hindus who introduced the world to iron & the Arabians forged them into daggers & swords!
The Swords that Arab smiths made with the metal cakes we exported to them, had a mottled pattern called, “muhammad’s ladder”!!!
Fascist ideology of hate and violence @RSSorg & @narendramodi ‘s !?

We believe in “ अहिंसा परमो धर्मः”
but we have also believed & practiced:
“ धर्म हिंसा तथैव च:”
The ‘Shastra Pooja’ is the reminder:
‘धर्म हिंसा तथैव च:’,
‘धर्म पर और राष्ट्र पर कोई आंच आ जाये तब धर्म की रक्षा की लिए की गई हिंसा ही सबसे बड़ा धर्म है’ ।

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
