THE ANCESTRY OF RAVANA
The Dravidians, to the extent that we might be able to see the portrayal of different countries in the Ramayana, can be identified with Rama's companions like Hanuman and the region of Kishkindha (Karnataka), who at the time of Rama were under the domination of Ravana, though his alliance with their king Bali.

Previously scholars have not placed Aryan migrants into Sri Lanka before 600 BC. However the most recent scholarship reveals that Harappan and pre-Harappan cultures going back to 6000 BC in India were Vedic (note my book Gods, Sages and Kings: Vedic Secrets of Ancient Civilization: Motilal Banarsidass 1993), as they were based on the Sarasvati river of Vedic fame. Hence the date of their arrival into Sri Lanka may be pushed back much further. Harappan port cities like Lothal or Dholavira in Gujarat and Kutch have been found in the regions of the Yadus going back to the third millennium BC. These were probably the basis for the Yadu migration to Sri Lanka.
