THE ARYAN INVASION OF INDIA QUESTIONED IN THE WESTERN TEXTBOOKS
According to the Aryan Invasion Theory-which is the basis of interpreting the ancient history of India found in most books today the Vedic people were barbarian hordes who overran North India after 1500 BC. They destroyed the more advanced Dravidian civilization of the subcontinent, which is evidenced by the ruins of the Harappan or Indus civilization. This theory is diametrically opposed to the traditional Hindu view of Vedic culture which regards it as indigenous from India, arising on the Sarasvati river west of Delhi, and sees it as a culture of great spirituality ruled by seers and yogis. 

The invasion idea was invented by nineteenth century European thinkers, and was mixed with colonial and missionary policies. It was always questioned by Hindus, including great thinkers like Sri Aurobindo, Vivekananda. B.G.Tilak and Dayananda Sarasvati.
