The Myth of Aryan Invasion
Sri Mallikarjuna Kharge, Congress MP and Leader of Opposition in the Loka Sabha said in the Indian Parliament yesterday that the Dravidians are the native of this country and the Aryans are aliens who came to India from outside. Professor Chandrashekara Patil (Champa), former Professor of English at Karnatak University, Dharwad and a renowned writer in Kannada also said yesterday that Brahmins ( meaning Aryans) must be the first to leave the country, if at all, as they came from outside and dominated the natives (Dravidians). We have all read in our school and college texts about the Aryan Invasion. Yet,the researches employing modern science and technology such as carbon dating and recent archeological findings clearly demonstrated that Aryan Invasion a myth, Aryans were part and parcel of India and Indian heritage including the Harappan Civilization. Aryans were as much original Indians as Dravidians.
It is surprising that leaders like Kharge and Champa do not follow development in History.
