Ancient India: Myth Of The Aryan Invasion

The Birla Science Conference

An important conference on ancient India occurred at the Birla Science Center in Hyderabad in 1994. It featured many leading archaeologists from India including S.R. Rao, S.P. Gupta, Bhagwan Singh, and B.G. Siddharth. All of them emphasized the same theme – that the old Aryan Invasion theory was wrong and went against all existing evidence. A new historical model for ancient India was necessary that showed a greater antiquity and centrality for Vedic culture.

It was encouraging to attend a conference with such eminent archaeologists and scholars and to learn that my work was not just a personal idiosyncrasy but part of a new movement that already had many adherents. The forum was quite heartwarming after the many years of isolated work that I had done. It was clear from the conference that the theory of Aryan invasion of India was being rejected on all fronts. I was not the only one, nor was my angle of criticism unique. I had merely  articulated what many Indians were thinking now and what a number had thought in the past.
