vedic physics - fabrication of aryan invasion theory
a devavision production http://www.devavision.org/
A very interesting documentary which deals with aryan invasion theory fabrication, and explaining vedic Indian discoveries covering mathematics and physics, what newton, pythagorus and many others discovered was already had been found by ancient Indians hundred of years ago but credit for that was not given due to racial discrimination.
Indians predated Newton 'discovery' by 250 years
Dr George Gheverghese Joseph from The University of Manchester says
the 'Kerala School' identified the 'infinite series'- one of the basic
components of calculus - in about 1350.
The discovery is currently - and wrongly - attributed in books to
Sir Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibnitz at the end of the seventeenth
The team from the Universities of Manchester and Exeter reveal the
Kerala School also discovered what amounted to the Pi series and used it
to calculate Pi correct to 9, 10 and later 17 decimal places.
And there is strong circumstantial evidence that the Indians passed
on their discoveries to mathematically knowledgeable Jesuit missionaries
who visited India during the fifteenth century.
That knowledge, they argue, may have eventually been passed on to Newton himself.
Dr Joseph made the revelations while trawling through obscure Indian
papers for a yet to be published third edition of his best selling book
'The Crest of the Peacock: the Non-European Roots of Mathematics' by
Princeton University Press.
He said: "The beginnings of modern maths is usually seen as a
European achievement but the discoveries in medieval India between the
fourteenth and sixteenth centuries have been ignored or forgotten.
"The brilliance of Newton's work at the end of the seventeenth
century stands undiminished - especially when it came to the algorithms
"But other names from the Kerala School, notably Madhava and
Nilakantha, should stand shoulder to shoulder with him as they
discovered the other great component of calculus- infinite series.
"There were many reasons why the contribution of the Kerala school
has not been acknowledged - a prime reason is neglect of scientific
ideas emanating from the Non-European world - a legacy of European
colonialism and beyond.
"But there is also little knowledge of the medieval form of the local
language of Kerala, Malayalam, in which some of most seminal texts,
such as the Yuktibhasa, from much of the documentation of this
remarkable mathematics is written."
He added: "For some unfathomable reasons, the standard of evidence
required to claim transmission of knowledge from East to West is greater
than the standard of evidence required to knowledge from West to East.
"Certainly it's hard to imagine that the West would abandon a
500-year-old tradition of importing knowledge and books from India and
the Islamic world.
"But we've found evidence which goes far beyond that: for example,
there was plenty of opportunity to collect the information as European
Jesuits were present in the area at that time.
"They were learned with a strong background in maths and were well versed in the local languages.
"And there was strong motivation: Pope Gregory XIII set up a committee to look into modernising the Julian calendar.
"On the committee was the German Jesuit astronomer/mathematician
Clavius who repeatedly requested information on how people constructed
calendars in other parts of the world. The Kerala School was undoubtedly
a leading light in this area.
"Similarly there was a rising need for better navigational methods
including keeping accurate time on voyages of exploration and large
prizes were offered to mathematicians who specialised in astronomy.
"Again, there were many such requests for information across the
world from leading Jesuit researchers in Europe. Kerala mathematicians
were hugely skilled in this area."

If there is one place on the face of earth where all dreams of living
men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the
dream of existence, it is India .
French scholar Romain Rolland.Voltaire Francois Marie Arouet (1694-1774) France's greatest writer and philosopher wrote:
" I am convinced that everything has come down to us from the banks of the Ganges,
- astronomy, astrology, metempsychosis, etc." " It is very important to
note that some 2,500 years ago at the least Pythagoras went from Samos
to the Ganges to learn geometry...But he would certainly not have
undertaken such a strange journey had the reputation of the Brahmins'
science not been long established in Europe..."
Friedrich von Schlegel (1772-1829) German philosopher, critic, and writer, declared in 1803:
without exception is of Indian origin.." "whether directly or
indirectly, all nations are originally nothing but Indian colonies."

No trace of “demographic disruption” in the
North-West of the subcontinent between 4500 and 800 BCE; this negates
the possibility of any massive intrusion, by so-called Indo-Aryans or
other populations, during that period.
Deep late Pleistocene
genetic link between contemporary Europeans and Indians, provided by the
mtDNA haplogroup U, which encompasses roughly a fifth of mtDNA lineages
of both populations. Our estimate for this split [between Europeans and
Indians] is close to the suggested time for the peopling of Asia and
the first expansion of anatomically modern humans in Eurasia and likely
pre-dates their spread to Europe.”
Haplogroup U, being common to
North Indian and “Caucasoid” populations, was found in tribes of eastern
India such as the Lodhas and Santals, which would not be the case if it
had been introduced through Indo-Aryans. Such is also the case of the
haplogroup M, another marker frequently mentioned in the early
literature as evidence of an invasion: in reality, haplogroup M occurs
with a high frequency, averaging about 60%, across most Indian
population groups, irrespective of geographical location of habitat.
Tribal populations have higher frequencies of haplogroup M than caste
- U.S. anthropologists Kenneth Kennedy, John Lukacs and Brian Hemphill.
haplogroup “M” common to India (with a frequency of 60%), Central and
Eastern Asia (40% on average), and even to American Indians; however,
this frequency drops to 0.6% in Europe, which is “inconsistent with the
‘general Caucasoidness’ of Indians.” This shows, once again, that “the
Indian maternal gene pool has come largely through an autochthonous
history since the Late Pleistocene.” U haplogroup frequency 13% in
India, almost 14% in North-West Africa, and 24% from Europe to Anatolia.
“Indian and western Eurasian haplogroup U varieties differ profoundly;
the split has occurred about as early as the split between the Indian
and eastern Asian haplogroup M varieties. The data show that both M and U
exhibited an expansion phase some 50,000 years ago, which should have
happened after the corresponding splits.” In other words, there is a
genetic connection between India and Europe, but a far more ancient one
than was thought.
If one were to extend methodology used to suggest
an Aryan invasion based on Y-Dna statistics to populations of Eastern
and Southern India, one would be led to an exactly opposite result: “the
straightforward suggestion would be that both Neolithic (agriculture)
and Indo-European languages arose in India and from there, spread to
- Twenty authors headed by Kivisild - Archaeogenetics of Europe - 2000.
Toomas Kivisild led a study (2003) in which comparisons of the
diversity of R1a1 (R-M17) haplogroup in Indian, Pakistani, Iranian,
Central Asian, Czech and Estonian populations. The study showed that the
diversity of R1a1 in India, Pakistan, and Iran, is higher than in
Czechs (40%), and Estonians.
Kivisild came to the conclusion
that "southern and western Asia might be the source of this haplogroup":
"Haplogroup R1a, previously associated with the putative Indo-Aryan
invasion, was found at its highest frequency in Punjab but also at a
relatively high frequency (26%) in the Chenchu tribe. This finding,
together with the higher R1a-associated short tandem repeat diversity in
India and Iran compared with Europe and central Asia, suggests that
southern and western Asia might be the source of this haplogroup".
“Given the geographic spread and STR diversities of sister clades R1
and R2, the latter of which is restricted to India, Pakistan, Iran, and
southern central Asia, it is possible that southern and western Asia
were the source for R1 and R1a differentiation. ”
- Kivilsid - 2003
sharing of some Y-chromosomal haplogroups between Indian and Central
Asian populations is most parsimoniously explained by a deep, common
ancestry between the two regions, with diffusion of some Indian-specific
“The Y-chromosomal data consistently suggest a
largely South Asian origin for Indian caste communities and therefore
argue against any major influx, from regions north and west of India, of
people associated either with the development of agriculture or the
spread of the Indo-Aryan language family.”
“Southern castes and
tribals are very similar to each other in their Y-chromosomal haplogroup
compositions.” As a result, “it was not possible to confirm any of the
purported differentiations between the caste and tribal pools,” a
conclusion that directly clashes with the Aryan invasion theory which
purports that male European Aryans chased tribal adivasis and
aboriginals down south.
“For me and for Toomas Kivisild, South
Asia is logically the ultimate origin of M17(Y-DNA Haplogroup R1a,
associated with the male Aryan invasion theory) and his ancestors; and
sure enough we find the highest rates and greatest diversity of the M17
line in Pakistan, India, and eastern Iran, and low rates in the
Caucasus. M17 is not only more diverse in South Asia than in Central
Asia, but diversity characterizes its presence in isolated tribal groups
in the south, thus undermining any theory of M17 as a marker of a ‘male
Aryan invasion’ of India. One average estimate for the origin of this
line in India is as much as 51,000 years. All this suggests that M17
could have found his way initially from India or Pakistan, through
Kashmir, then via Central Asia and Russia, before finally coming into
F. Max Muller speaks of the colonization of Persia by the Hindus.
Discussing the word 'Arya', he says: "But it was more faithfully
preserved by the Zoroastrians, who migrated from India to the North-west
and whose religion has been preserved to us in the Zind Avesta, though
in fragments only. He again says: "The Zoroastrians were a colony from

to find that out of words in Du Perron's Zind Dictionary, six or seven

Louis Jacolliot (1837-1890), who worked in French India as a government
official and was at one time President of the Court in Chandranagar,
translated numerous Vedic hymns, the Manusmriti, and the Tamil work,
Kural. This French savant and author of La Bible Dans L'Inde says:
"With such congruence before us, no one, I imagine, will appear to
contest the purely Hindu origin of Egypt, unless to suggest that: "And
who tells you that it was not Indian that copied Egypt? Any of you
require that this affirmation shall be refuted by proofs leaving no room
for even a shadow of doubt
"To be quite logical, then deprive
India of the Sanskrit, that language which formed all other; but show me
in India a leaf of papyrus, a columnar inscription, a temple bas relief
tending to prove Egyptian birth."
1.1 Peter Von Bohlen (1796 –
1840), a German Indologist, in his two volume monumental work Ancient
India with special reference to Egypt compared, at length, ancient Egypt
with India. He thought there was a cultural connection between the two
in ancient times. Egypt being at the receiving end.
Heinrich Karl Brugsch agrees with this view and writes in his History of Egypt that,
"We have a right to more than suspect that India, eight thousand years
ago, sent a colony of emigrants who carried their arts and high
civilization into what is now known as Egypt." The Egyptians came,
according to their records, from a mysterious land (now known to lie on
the shores of the Indian Ocean)."
Col. Henry Steel Olcott, a
former president of the Theosophical Society, who explained in a March,
1881 edition of The Theosophist (page 123) that:
"We have a
right to more than suspect that India, eight thousand years ago, sent a
colony of emigrants who carried their arts and high civilization into
what is now known to us as Egypt...This is what Bengsch Bey, the modern
as well as the most trusted Egyptologer and antiquarian says on the
origin of the old Egyptians. Regarding these as a branch of the
Caucasian family having a close affinity with the Indo-Germanic races,
he insists that they 'migrated from India before historic memory, and
crossed that bridge of nations, the Isthus of Suez, to find a new
fatherland on the banks of the Nile."
1.2 Many others have also
written on similar lines (e.g. El Mansouri, Sir William Jones, Paul
William Roberts, and Adolf Eramn).
Max Muller had also observed
that the mythology of Egyptians (and also that of the Greeks and
Assyrians) is wholly founded on Vedic traditions. Eusebius, a Greek
writer, has also recorded that the early Ethiopians emigrated from the
river Indus and first settled in the vicinity of Egypt.
Egyptians came, according to their own records, from a mysterious
land...on the shore of the Indian Ocean, the sacred Punt; the original
home of their gods...who followed thence after their people who had
abandoned them to the valley of the Nile, led by Amon, Hor and Hathor.
This region was the Egyptian 'Land of the Gods,' Pa-Nuter, in old
Egyptian, or Holyland, and now proved beyond any doubt to have been
quite a different place from the Holyland of Sinai. By the pictorial
hieroglyphic inscription found on the walls of the temple of the Queen
Haslitop at Der-el-babri, we see that this Punt can be no other than
India. For many ages the Egyptians traded with their old homes, and the
reference here made by them to the names of the Princes of Punt and its
fauna and flora, especially the nonmenclature of various precious woods
to be found but in India, leave us scarcely room for the smallest doubt
that the old civilization of Egypt is the direct outcome of that the

It is believed that the Dravidians from India went to Egypt and laid
the foundation of its civilization there. the Egyptians themselves had
the tradition that they originally came from the South, from a land
called Punt, historian of the West, Dr. H.R. Hall
Indus Valley civilization is, according to Sir John Marshall who was in
charge of the excavations, the oldest of all civilizations unearthed (c.
4000 B.C.) It is older than the Sumerian and it is believed by many
that the latter was a branch of the former.
(1854-1937) author of Life in ancient Egypt and A handbook of Egyptian
religion, says that the persons who were responsible for a highly
developed Egyptian civilization were from Punt, an Asiatic country, a
description of which is unveiled by this scholar from the old legends - a
distant country washed by the great seas, full of valleys, incense,
balsum, precious metals and stones; rich in animals, cheetahs, panthers,
dog-headed apes and long tailed monkeys, winged creatures with strange
feathers to fly up to the boughs of wonderful trees, especially the
incense tree and the coconut trees.
Dr. Erman further says that
analyzing the Egyptian legends makes it clear that from Punt the
heavenly beings headed by Amen, Horus and Hather, passed into the Nile
valley...To this same country belongs that idol of Bes, the ancient
figure of the deity in the Land of Punt.
Klaus K. Klostermaier, in his book A Survey of Hinduism p. 18 says:
"For several centuries a lively commerce developed between the ancient
Mediterranean world and India, particularly the ports on the Western
coast. The most famous of these ports was Sopara, not far from modern
Bombay, which was recently renamed Mumbai. Present day Cranganore in
Kerala, identified with the ancient Muziris, claims to have had trade
contacts with Ancient Egypt under Queen Hatsheput, who sent five ships
to obtain spices, as well as with ancient Israel during King Soloman's
reign. Apparently, the contact did not break off after Egypt was
conquered by Greece and later by Rome.
Arnold Hermann Ludwig
Heeren (1760-1842) an Egyptologist has observed: "It is perfectly
agreeable to Hindu manners that colonies from India, i.e., Banian
families should have passed over Africa, and carried with them their
industry, and perhaps also their religious worship." "Whatever weight
may be attached to Indian tradition and the express testimony of
Eusebius confirming the report of migrations from the banks of the Indus
into Egypt, there is certainly nothing improbable in the event itself,
as a desire of gain would have formed a sufficient inducement."
(source: Historical Researches - Heeran p. 309).
Louis Jacolliot has written:
“Egypt received from India, by Manes or Manu, its social institutions
and laws, which resulted in division of the people into four castes, and
placing the priest in the first rank; in the second, kings; then
traders and artisans; and last in the social scale, the proletaire – the
menial almost a slave.”
Gustav Oppert (1836-1908) born in
Hamburg, Germany, he taught Sanskrit and comparative linguistics at the
Presidency College, Madras for 21 years. He was the Telugu translator to

wrote a book Die Gottheiten der Indier ("The Gods of the Indians") in
In his book Oppert discussed the chief gods of the Aryans and he compares Aditi with Egyptian Isis and the Babylonian Ea.

not completely in the dark on the question of Indian influence on
Greece. Speaking of ascetic practices in the West, Professor Sir
Flinders Petrie (1853-1942) British archaeologist and Egyptologist,
author of Egypt and Israel (1911) observes:
"The presence of a
large body of Indian troops in the Persian army in Greece in 480 B.C.
shows how far west the Indian connections were carried; and the
discovery of modeled heads of Indians at Memphis, of about the fifth
century B.C. shows that Indians were living there for trade. Hence there
is no difficulty in regarding India as the source of the entirely new
ideal of asceticism in the West."
Friedrich Wilhelm, Freiherr von Bissing (1873-1956) wrote:
"The land of Punt in the Egyptian ethnological traditions has been
identified by the scholars with the Malabar coast of Deccan. From this
land ebony, and other rich woods, incense, balsam, precious metals, etc.
used to be imported into Egypt."
(source: Prehistoricsche Topfen aus Indien and Aegypten - By Friedrich Wilhelm, Freiherr von Bissing. Chapter VIII ).
Sir William Jones says:
"Of the cursory observations on the Hindus, which it would require
volumes to expand and illustrate, this is the result, that they had an
immemorial affinity with the old Persians, Ethiopians and Egyptians, the
Phoenicians, Greeks, and Tuscans, the Scythians, or Goths, and Celts,
the Chinese, Japanese, and Peruvians."

Early indologists wished to control &
convert the followers of Vedic Culture, therefore they widely propagated
that the Vedas were simply mythology.
Max Muller, perhaps the
most well known early sanskritist and indologist, although later in life
he glorified the Vedas, initially wrote that the "Vedas were worse than
savage" and "India must be conquered again by education... it's
religion is doomed"
Thomas Macaulay, who introduced English
education into India wanted to make the residents into a race that was:
"Indian in blood and color, but English in taste, in opinion, in morals,
and in intellect."
However, the German Philosopher Arthur
Schopenhauer stated that the Sanskrit understanding of these Indologists
was like that of young schoolboys.
These early Indologists:
• Devised the Aryan Invasion theory, denying India's Vedic past
• They taught that the English educational system is superior
• They intentionally misinterpreted sanskrit texts to make the Vedas look primitive.
• And they systematically tried to make Indians ashamed of their own culture
• Thus the actions of these indologists seems to indicate that they were motivated by a racial bias.
• There is no evidence of an Aryan homeland outside of India mentioned
anywhere in the Vedas. On the contrary, the Vedas speak of the mighty
Sarasvati River and other places indigenous to India. To date, no
evidence for a foreign intrusion has been found, neither archaeological,
linguistic, cultural nor genetic.
• There are more than 2,500
Archaeological sites, two-thirds of which are along the recently
discovered dried up Sarasvati River bed. These sites show a cultural
continuity with the Vedic literature from the early Harrapan
civilization up to the present day India.
• Several independent studies of the drying up of the Sarasvati River bed, all indicate the same time period of 1,900 B.C.E.
• The significance of establishing this date for the drying up of the
Sarasvati River is, that it pushes the date for the composition of the
Rig Veda back to approximately 3,000 B.C.E., as enunciated by the Vedic
• The late dating of the Vedic literatures by
indologists is based on speculated dates of 1,500 B.C.E. for the Aryan
Invasion and 1,200 B.C.E. for the Rig Veda, both now disproved by

Scientists Collide with Linguists to Assert Indigenous origin of Indian Civilization
Comprehensive population genetics data along with archeological and
astronomical evidence presented at June 23-25, 2006 conference in
Dartmouth, MA, overwhelmingly concluded that Indian civilization and its
human population is indigenous.
In fact, the original people
and culture within the Indian Subcontinent may even be a likely pool for
the genetic, linguistic, and cultural origin of the most rest of the
world, particularly Europe and Asia.
Leading evidences come
from population genetics, which were presented by two leading
researchers in the field, Dr. V. K. Kashyap, National Institute of
Biologicals, India, and Dr. Peter Underhill of Stanford University in
California. Their results generally contradict the notion Aryan
invasion/migration theory for the origin of Indian civilization.
Underhill concluded "the spatial frequency distributions of both L1
frequency and variance levels show a spreading pattern emanating from
India", referring to a Y chromosome marker. He, however, put several
caveats before interpreting genetic data, including "Y-ancestry may not
always reflect the ancestry of the rest of the genome"
Kashyap, on the other hand, with the most comprehensive set of genetic
data was quite emphatic in his assertion that there is "no clear genetic
evidence for an intrusion of Indo-Aryan people into India, [and]
establishment of caste system and gene flow."
Michael Witzel, a
Harvard linguist, who is known to lead the idea of Aryan
Invasion/migration/influx theory in more recent times, continued to
question genetic evidence on the basis that it does not provide the time
resolution to explain events that may have been involved in Aryan
presence in India.
Dr. Kashyap's reply was that even though the
time resolution needs further work, the fact that there are clear and
distinct differences in the gene pools of Indian population and those of
Central Asian and European groups, the evidence nevertheless negates
any Aryan invasion or migration into Indian Subcontinent.
Witzel though refused to present his own data and evidence for his
theories despite being invited to do so was nevertheless present in the
conference and raised many questions. Some of his commentaries
questioning the credibility of scholars evoked sharp responses from
Rig Veda has been dated to 1,500 BC by
those who use linguistics to claim its origin Aryans coming out of
Central Asia and Europe. Archaeologist B.B. Lal and scientist and
historian N.S. Rajaram disagreed with the position of linguists, in
particular Witzel who claimed literary and linguistic evidence for the
non-Indian origin of the Vedic civilization.
Achar, a physicist from University of Memphis clearly showed with
astronomical analysis that the Mahabharata war in 3,067 BC, thus poking a
major hole in the outside Aryan origin of Vedic people.
Interestingly, Witzel stated, for the first time to many in the
audience, that he and his colleagues no longer subscribe to Aryan
Dr. Bal Ram Singh, Director, Center for Indic
Studies at UMass Dartmouth, which organized the conference was appalled
at the level of visceral feelings Witzel holds against some of the
scholars in the field, but felt satisfied with the overall outcome of
"I am glad to see people who have been
scholarly shooting at each other for about a decade are finally in one
room, this is a progress", said Singh.
The conference was able
to bring together in one room for the first time experts from genetics,
archeology, physics, linguistics, anthropology, history, and philosophy.
A proceedings of the conference is expected to come out soon, detailing
various arguments on the origin of Indian civilization.
