Indian Civilisation: The Untold Story – Revisited — A Talk By Raj Vedam

Indian history, or what we have been taught by way of history in India, has many strange paradoxes which are hard to explain to rational, inquiring minds. At the root of these paradoxes is the Colonial Ideological Offensive, imposed by British historians steeped in Biblical tradition. These historians simply could not come to terms with an established chronology in India that pointed to a far greater antiquity than their ecclesiastical mnemonic of the destruction of the world in 3000 BC during Noah’s Flood allowed them to believe.

That the men delegated by the East India Company to write India’s history came with a bias into the discourse and introduced distortions to force fit their Biblical canons is a fact many Indians are waking up to at long last. What a majority of Indians are still not aware of, however, is that the enterprise of distortion of Indian history continues unabated in Western Academia as they strive hard to find newer paradigms to uphold the debunked Aryan Invasion Theory or AIT.

In this Srijan Talk, Dr. Raj Vedam examines the claims supporting Aryan Invasion Theory and explains how new-found evidences do not support the AIT hypothesis. Respectable disciplines like Archaeology, Genetics and Archaeo-Genetics have thrown up artefacts and evidences that point to precision-oriented human activity in different parts of India tens of thousand years ago, and in some cases hundreds of thousand years ago. Additionally, the broad consensus among scholars points to the R1a genome having originated in India and not in Central Asia. There is no evidence to support the Aryan Invasion Theory, although there is evidence to support the Out of India theory.

In addition to expounding on a series of multi-disciplinary evidences that disprove the Aryan Invasion Theory, Dr. Vedam also makes a case for taking into consideration internal, indigenous Indic references that have been ignored so far. There is a vast body of internal evidences within Indian Literary Texts and Indian Knowledge Systems like the Vedas, Puranas and Itihasas that cite Migratory, Astronomical, Environmental, Engineering and Knowledge-Transfer related references among others which prove, quite categorically, that India is a very ancient civilization with a human continuum of very great antiquity and that Indian thought and knowledge impacted the East as well as the West from ancient times.

  1. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0092867419309675 Sir, in their article published in the Journal “Cell”, Reich et all have said, ” Our analysis of data …….. demonstrates the existence of an ancestry gradient that was widespread in farmers to the northwest of peninsular India at the height of the IVC, that had little if any genetic contribution from Steppe pastoralists or western Iranian farmers or herders, and that had a primary impact on the ancestry of later South Asians.” In a further analysis of their data, they have admitted that there was only some migration (if we are to be forced to accept this) over some centuries) that may have contributed to 0 – 30% of the DNA of north Indians. Other authors have tried to used circumlocutory arguments to say that the DNA contribution may have been less but the linguistic contribution may be much more, which is why the concept of Indo-European languages is very much alive in their annals. I think the time is now ripe to reverse the trend, and to actively search for evidence that there was a reverse migration of both DNA and language from the Indian peninsula to the Steppe regions, to help explain the similarities by making the Indian peninsula as the origin and not the recipient of their largesse.
