@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Vedas...? Few used to say that ‘Vedas’ are the most ancient literature. Vedas comprises the spoken or sung literature, which continues with the oral tradition of the #Sanskrit epics. As Sanskrit does not have a script of its own it even not counted as a language.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP #Sanskrit is an European language and Hindi's mother land is Turkey.
Still few people like you still believes that the Aryan invasion is myth, phys.org/news/2012-08-t…
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Westerners became interested in it after Sir William Jones "discovered" #Sanskrit , as it were, and then extolled its virtues at a meeting of the 'Bengal Asiatick Society' in 1786. Taking cues from Jones, linguists began looking for links between Sanskrit and other languages.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP This search eventually led to the classification of the Indo-European family of languages, which itself spawned many other language families such as Germanic, Italic, Anatolian, and Indo-Iranian, to name only a few. The Indo-Iranian branch further split into 4 groups. #AIT
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The Indo Iranian or European Language group that invaded into India decades ago.…!! Indo European group of language and Native Indian language. ancient.eu/Indo-European_…
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Even there are arguments over Sir Willian Jones’s connecting Hindi with #Sanskrit as studies asserting that few languages related to Hindi was a surviving original language of India which had been heavily invaded by Sanskrit loanwords. You can realize it from Bihar's Bhojpuri.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Avestan and Sanskrit are from European or Iranian language group.. later they called Sanskrit as Indo Aryan. heritageinstitute.com/zoroastrianism…
The Indo-European Sanskrit & Avesta have a common basic vocabulary and common grammar. Ariya (the name of Persia) is mentioned in the Vedas.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The people, swept into the plains of North India almost 4,000 yrs ago as chariot-riding conquerors, calling themselves Aryas, "lords."
The Ancient texts of Iran claim that they are Aryans, the word "Iran" itself means, "Land of the Aryans".
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The Vedic Sanskrit texts claim that Indians are Aryans, and India in these texts is referred to as, "Aryavarta" or "The Land of Aryans".
Anyone who speaks one of the Indo-European languages as his/her native tongue is by definition, an Aryan.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The people Aryans, who speak this group of Indo-European language belong to different ethnic groups and races spread throughout the world.
Comparative mythology provides us with a few examples of similarity between Indian and Ancient Greek religion and God/Goddesses.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The Invaders attacked the Harappan people and destroyed the civilization and founded the Vedic civilization in its place. -Aryan Invasion.
The other source from which we get an idea of a conflict between Aryans and the Harappans is from the Rig Veda.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP A synonym of " Aryo-Indian " is " Gaudian " or " Gaurian," based on a Sanskrit word for the non-Dravidian parts of native India proper.
The similarity between the Greek mythological gods & Hindu Gods are the other source...of proof to prove the invasion of Aryans into India.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Few thinks that Invasion of Aryan theory is a myth.. but everybody accepts that a class of an Indo-European family of languages exits.

hinduismtoday.com/modules/smarts… … Tamil & #Sanskrit as sister languages! Who told ? Lord Siva, manifesting as Dakshinamurti
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP New scientific research has proved that the supposedly "discredited" Aryan Race Theory may have been right after all.
Aryan theory argued that warriors, having tamed the horse and invented the wheel, conquered most of Northern India thousands of years ago.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The invaders invaded and bringing with them the family of languages and mythology that used to be known as Aryan.
Even today… from languages to worship methods to customs… we can observe the vast differences between the South and North.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP At the same time one can't deny the similarities of mythological and structure/physical appearances between Iranian/Europeans/North Indians.
The Indus civilization flourished for half a millennium from about 2600 bc to 1900 bc. Mysteriously declined and vanished from view.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP #Sanskrit & Avesta have a common basic vocabulary & common grammar. There is much in common between the Vedic religion and Zoroastrianism. The core of these religions was sacrifice, centered on fire....whereas native Indian worship centered on Water.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The name Iran & Aryavarta are close relatives & denote the abode of te excellent ones, the noble & respectable people, faithful to their land Indian or Indo-Iranian groups who worshiped the Vedic deities were found in & to the north of Syria in the middle of the 2nd millenm B.C.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The hymn of Gayatri resembles the Gatha of the ancient Iranians. The vedic ritual of Agni and the Avestic ritual of Atar were similar. Certain Persian Gods/Goddesses have common roots with Indian equivalents, because during the Vedai Era, Persian and Indian Aryans lived together.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP During the Vedic period, gods were divided into two classes the devas and the asuras (In Iranian daevas and ahuras). In India devas came to be more powerful than the asuras & the latter word eventually took on the meaning of a demon In Iran it is reverse.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The Indo-Iranian element in later Hinduism is chiefly found in the initiatory ceremony (upanayana) performed by boys, The 4 varnas (classification of society) of India developed out of very early Aryan class divisions Ancient Iran too had 4 pistras as in INDIA.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Aryan invasion theory has lots of support from archaeology, epigraphy & linguistics evidences, which the "India settled Aryans" doesn’t like.
Without Mythological character and hypothesis, these so called Aryans dare to touch the real history that armed with scientific evidences.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Dakshina in #Sanskrit means "south, southern", dravi a is a word used to indicate people / land culture who followed in souther part.
The word dravi_a in Indo-Iranian language #Sanskrit has been historically used to denote geographical regions of Southern India as whole.

@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Dravidian language family Group, Unlike Indo European, the Native group found only in India & Southern/Central Asia.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Zoroastrian scriptures, the Avesta, and the scriptures of Rig Veda, classified by linguists as part of the Indo-Iranian family of languages.
Oldest language or dialect in the Avesta,is close to the language used in the Rig Veda, which for convenience we call Vedic #Sanskrit.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The Avesta, the language of the Gathas and the Vedic Sanskrit, together, they form some of the oldest language in the world.
Old Avestan: aevo pantao yo ashahe, vispe anyaesham apantam
Old Sanskrit: abade pantha he ashae, visha anyaesham apantham heritageinstitute.com/zoroastrianism
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP applet-magic.com/sanskritavesta… People who wrote the Avesta and the Rig Veda #Sanskrit called themselves Aryans & the Avestan-Rig Vedic languages are "Aryan languages".
Avesta & #Sanskrit shared some vocabulary that is not shared with the other Indo-European languages.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Some of the Indo-Europeans migrated into the Oxus River Valley and the Iranian Plateau. Others migrated to the north and west.
From Iran there were migrations into North India to the east and west into the Tigris-Euphrates River Valleys. : The Mitanni Empire.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The migration into North India was, of course, the far most important of the migrations from Iran, especially the languages.
Detailed preservation of the exact language of religious enchantment & incantation of words, texts a comparison can be made by linguistics.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Those few started to see AIT as an instrument created by Missionaries… just to sow dissension among autochthonous Indians.
So much so that most politically pro-Hindu individuals tied themselves to some version of OIT. Just to stick to their mythological identity.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP OIT’s basic form was explicitly spelled out by Frawley & Talageri,the view that the Indo-Europeans originated in India & expanded westwards.
Talageri equated the Indo-Europeans with Vedic pañcajana, even classified that the non-Indian branches of Indo-Euro & the Indo-Aryan branch
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Talageri titled his book: “Rigveda and the Avesta: The Final Evidence” i.e.for OIT This was after genetics, had prepared the coffin for OIT.
Spearheaded by archaeologist Renfrew, this OIT hypothesis proposed that the Indo-Europeans originated in Anatolia who carried IE languages.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP OIT was a figment of some un-erudite Hindus, but a wrong idea of some potency that was seizing the brains of otherwise, discerning people.
Asia Minor is a geographic region in the south-western part of Asia comprising most of what is present-day Turkey, Eastern Europe.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP It was called, by the Greeks, “Anatolia” ('place of the rising sun’, for those lands to the east of Greece). 'Asia Minor’ Little Asia.
Archaeologist Renfrew's OIT hypothesis proposed that the Indo-Europeans originated in Anatolia aka Minor Asia, the Eastern Europe.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP When you read about the Migration of Aryans through scientific evidences, you should not politicize it with "Aryan-Dravidian Divide".
When we read about Turkish to Armenians and Kurds… naturally native Indians have a tendency to link them with Aryans,
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Aryans were a linguistically similar collection of people. They didn’t invade India, they migrated to it. -Thapar newslaundry.com/2014/08/11/ind…
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP There is neither any literary account of Indus Civilization inhibited by Aryans nor any Archaeological evidences to support their presence. As we have seen, the archaeological epigraphy evidences of Indus Civilization proved that flourished Civilization was that of Dravidian.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The cultural and linguistic linkage between India and Iran were awesome fact. indianembassytehran.gov.in/pages.php?id=1…

@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Linguistic evidences, the Indo-Iranians who for a long period shared a common tradition while living as Nomads in the Central Asian steppes.

It is believed that Indians & Iranians belonged to one single family before the beginning of the Indo-Aryan civilization.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Old Persian language was a member of the Indic branch of the Indo-European langu. One later developed as #Sanskrit and the other as Persian.

The name of India has come from Iran through a long relay. Similarly, the name Iran is related to #Sanskrit Arya (noble).

No stone scripture in Sanskrit found in India. This Indo European language #Sanskrit formed by loaning words from Pali and Tamil.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Sanskrit not only borrowed words from Tamil.. but also Pali and Kannada.. Not only Tamil even Kannada is older than Sanskrit.

Of the one-lakh odd inscriptions in India, about 60,000 were in Tamil Nadu And of the 60,000 inscriptions, only 5 % were in other languages.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP 5% were in other languages such as Telugu, Kannada & Indo-European language #Sanskrit the rest were in Tamil. -ASI thehindu.com/2005/11/22/sto…

The earliest known inscriptions in #Sanskrit date to the 1st century BCE They are in Brahmi script, which was originally used for Prakrit
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP First evidence of #Sanskrit in Devanagari occurs centuries later than that of te Prakrit languages which are its linguistic descendants.

Pali was the language of the masses & therefore Sanskrit and Vedic Hinduism was isolated to sociopolitical elite Caste system ruins Sanskrit.

@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The Avesta, the language of the Gathas and the Vedic #Sanskrit, together, they form some of the oldest language in the world. Avestan and Sanskrit together from Indo- Iranian language group.. later they called Sanskrit as Indo Aryan heritageinstitute.com/zoroastrianism
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The earliest known full inscriptions of Brahmi are in Prakrit, dated to be from 3- 1st BCE. Prakrit records predominate the epigraphic records discovered in the Indian subcontinent through about 1st CE till Damili inscription which dated 5th BCE discovered in Madurai Jaina Hills.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP As per stone inscriptions found in India, we have Asoka Brahmi, Damili or Tamil-1, Damili-2, Grantha, Northern, Southern Script and Sinhala Scripts.
Prakrit an early medieval dialect which Sanskrit adopted to use before Nagari.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The language of the earliest written records, viz., the Asokan edicts, is Prakrit. Besides Prakrit, Asokan edicts are written in Greek and Aramaic languages also. All the edicts of Asoka engraved in the Kharoshthi and Brahmi scripts are in the Prakrit language.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The antiquity of writing in India stretches back to the period of the Indus civilization which lasted for about a thousand years from 2500 to 1500 B.C. After a gap of over a thousand years we come across inscriptions of Asoka in the Greek, Aramaic, Kharosthi and Brahmi scripts.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Brahmi was the most common script used by Buddhist Asoka who ruled from 269 to 232 B.C. Brahmi inscriptions which belong to the period of Asoka have been found in Sri Lanka in rock-shelters. The language used in the Brahmi inscriptions of Ceylon and those of Asoka is Prakrit.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Inscriptions using Brahmi characters have also been discovered in Tamil Nadu in rock-shelters and potsherds of different types, and the earliest writings so far discovered in Tamil are written in characters which closely resemble Asoka Brahmi inscriptions.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP These inscriptions are said to be written in the Tamil script to denote the fact that it is a script closely resembling Brahmi and used for writing the Tamil language. After ascertaining the script, its named as Damili or Tamil-I and Tamil-II
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Both the modern Tamil script1 and the Vatteluthu script evolved from this parent script. No other script earlier than the Tamil-Brahmi (also called the Damili or Tamil) script has so far been discovered in Tamil Nadu.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The Westerners were more eager to mention the Sanskrit name than Prakrit name. Because they were then of the opinion that Sanskrit is the earliest branch of Indo-European Languages. As par India, discusses goes only on available scriptures through ASI.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP #Damili is the Prakrit term and Dravidi the #Sanskrit term for #Tamil. Hence all the scholars who are in this field should prefer to use the term “Tamil” script than the Sanskrit name Brahmi ( or Tamil Brahmi).
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Indus civilization always take centre stage, if it is History of India or study about Indology or Archeology. If a language exits some 58355284325 crore years before, than something archeologically or linguistically or Epigraphically need to prove that the language was there.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The three “fundamental discoveries” in Indological studies are

The discovery of the Indo-European language family (1786)
The discovery of the Dravidian language family (1816)
and the discovery of the Indus civilisation (1924).
-Thomas Trautman
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP It is significant that two of the three “fundamental discoveries” relate to the Dravidian, though the latest one is still being “debated” for want of an acceptable decipherment of the Indus script which is underway by world renowned epigraphists.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The Junagadh rock inscription of Rudradaman, also known as the Girnar Rock inscription of Rudradaman was inscribed by the Western Satraps ruler Rudradaman I.

@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Latest studies reveals that the origin of the Dravidian language family, consisting of about 80 varieties spoken by 220 million people across southern and central India and surrounding countries, can be dated to about 4,500 years ago.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Along with Indo European language #Sanskrit, Tamil is one of the world’s classical languages, But unlike Indo European Sanskrit, in Tamil there is continuity between its classical and modern forms documented in inscriptions, poems, and secular and religious texts and songs.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP “The study of the Dravidian languages is crucial for understanding prehistory in Eurasia, as they played a significant role in influencing other language groups,” explains corresponding author Dr.Annemarie Verkerk of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The consensus of the research community is that the Dravidians are natives of the Indian subcontinent and were present prior to the arrival of the Indo-Aryans (Indo-European speakers) in India around 3,500 years ago. The research study reveals more.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP “Here we have a really exciting opportunity to investigate the interactions between these people, and other cultural groups in the area such as Indo-European and Austro-Asiatic on one of the great crossroads of human prehistory,”states author Dr Simon Greenhill of the Max Planck.

@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Previous work has shown that the Indian Cline-a gradient of different proportions of West Eurasian related ancestry in South Asia-can be well modeled as having arisen from a mixture of two ancestral populations (the ANI & the ASI),which mixed mostly after 2000 BCE. #AIT
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The recent study on #Rakhigarhi "The Genomic Formation of South & Central Asia" model is also notable in showing that early Iranian agriculturalists fit without AASI admixture, and thus the patterns we observe are driven by gene flow into South Asia and not the reverse. #AIT
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The evidence that a population with both Iranian agriculturalist & South Asian hunter gatherer ancestry (Indus_Periphery)was established in the 3rd millennium BCE & that its Iranian agriculturalist-related and #AASI ancestry sources mixed at an average time of around 4700-3000BCE
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP The enrichment for Steppe ancestry is not found in the southern Indian groups, the Steppe enrichment in the northern groups is striking as Brahmins and Bhumihars are among the traditional custodians of texts written in early #Sanskrit (which is still not available). #AIT
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP A possible explanation is that the influx/invasion of Steppe_MLBA ancestry into South Asia in the mid-2nd millennium BCE created a meta-population of groups with different proportions of Steppe ancestry,with ones having having a central role in spreading early Vedic culture. #AIT
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Finally the research highlighted a remarkable parallel between the prehistory of two sub-continents of Eurasia: South Asia & Europe. In both regions, West Asian agricultural technology spread from an origin in the Near East in the 7th and 6th millennia BCE. #AIT

@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP Let it be Iran or Turan, some form of “Aryan” invasion did take place, even if that term is not used. As usual invaders trying hard to establish their identity where they invaded. The #Rakhigarhi project highlighted that Harappans were genetically ‘Ancestral South Indian’ stock.
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP We can't say that "We Are All Harappans".
We can take a strong objection to the theory that it was only Ancient Ancestral South Indian (AASI) ancestry which was native to South Asia & that Iranian Neolithic ancestry is not native but intrusive. #AIT
@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP A new paper titled “The Genomic Formation of South and Central Asia,” authored by 92 scientists around the globe, could settle some major questions about the subcontinent’s history, AIT and what that means for various theories of Indian civilisation. biorxiv.org/content/10.110…

@vrishchikan @NChozhan @zaynarifx @nyasarn @HRajaBJP In this linguistic families (which classified by Linguistics) #Sanskrit classified as European language... which sub classified as Indo European/Iranian Language. Hence, #AIT linguistically proved by researchers around the world.

From Thapar, the stance over Aryan Invasion softened as "Migration" seems inappropriate.
If its "Migration" there was NO need to push the indigenous Indians towards South.
"Mass Displacements" happens only during Invasion.
