ANOTHER TAKE ON INDIAN ORIGINS
by Mark Lanzarotta,
The ancestors of the Dravidians, the Proto-Elamites, originated from a Zarzian (Nostratic) migration from the Zagros Mountains to Turkmenistan around 13,000 BC. They were driven from there in 8000 BC by Proto-Sumerians from the Altais and fled to Iran, where they gave rise to the Elamites, among others. They began to drift into India around 7000 BC and wrested it from the Nihalis (the new arrivals started the Mehrgarh civilization, a blend of Dravidians and native Nihalis). The Mundas didn’t exist yet, they came from Yunnan later. The Dravidians married the Australoid indigenes and became quite dark, though they imposed their language on the conquered people. In the Indus Valley was invented Dentistry by these people. The Iranian Dravidians (Elamites) drove the Kartvelians from Mazanderan to the Caucasus around 6000 BC. The Indus Valley people had terrible floods and plagues which drove them south. The Aryans, a mixture of Iranians and Hunas, began to filter into India around 1300 BC, absorbing some Dravidians and driving the others south. The Indo-Aryan kingdoms mentioned in the Mahabharata were established by 1100 BC. Bengal remained Dravidian much longer than western India, though they were eventually conquered. Bengal means “God’s Country” in the language of the Mundas, the original inhabitants.
The Dravidians were related to but not the same as Elamites, since they arose as a mixture of Elamites and African settlers from the Horn of Africa in the Ormozgan area of southeastern Iran, around 7500 BC.
The ancient Adivasis or Australoids originally spoke Australian languages before the Dravidians conquered them. The Dravidians are related to Austro-Asiatics like the Mundas through extensive admixture in India, though not by common origin. Dravidians are Nostratics with an Eritrean admixture, they have a separate origin from the Austric peoples. The Australoid Adivasis are among the oldest Indians of them all, they arrived in India in 60,000 BC. But they were preceded by the Negrito ancestors of the Andamese, who were in Uttar Pradesh as early as 85,000 BC. Before them Denisovan hominin and Homo Erectus lived in India for countless ages, and a few of their most ancient genes are still in the Indian people today.
