That Gujarat was a once suspect land to Vedic people when
it was under Jain domination does not cause us to turn the Gujaratis into another race or
religion. That something similar happened to the Dravidians at a point in history does not
require making them permanently non-Aryan.
In the history
of Europe, for example, that Austria once went through a Protestant phase, does not cause
modern Austrians to consider that they cannot be Catholics.
The kings of South India, like the Chola and Pandya dynasties, relate their lineages back
to Manu. The Matsya Purana moreover makes Manu, the progenitor of all the Aryas,
originally a South Indian king, Satyavrata.
there are not only traditions that make the Dravidians descendants of Vedic rishis and
kings, but those that make the Aryans of North India descendants of Dravidian kings. The
two cultures are so intimately related that it is difficult to say which came first. Any
differences between them appear to be secondary, and nothing exists like the great racial
divide that the Aryan-Dravidian idea has promoted.
