THE ANCESTRY OF RAVANA
Hanuman, who was Rama's best devotee, better represents the ancient Dravidians (who incidentally were also Aryans, in that they have always been portrayed in Vedic and puranic literature as descendants of Vedic people, including the seers Agastya and Vishvamitra, and traditionally called themselves Aryans). Unfortunately various groups have tried to use the Ramayana for political gain without ever really examining the details of the story! Rama was not the first northerner to come to the south of India. 

The Yadus and Daityas had long before migrated to Sri Lanka. Rama came not as an intruder but as a liberator, freeing the south from the rule of Ravana and returning it to the rule of its own native peoples. Rama did not impose the rule of the north upon the south. For this reason he has always been traditionally worshipped in the south as a great hero. Such information requires a rewriting of Indian history, which is necessary on a number of accounts.
