BASIS OF THE ARYAN INVASION THEORY
It would have taken some time for these cultures to have formed and moved, particularly in early ancient times when cultural developments were much slower than today.

The movement of the Aryans could have well as been from India to the west rather than from the west into  India, as subtropical India with its vast river systems is more able to produce the necessary populations for such migrations than barren Central Asia or cold eastern Europe, which even today are very difficult to inhabit. Such movements certainly do not require the violent type of invasion that the Aryan invasion portrays and the image of the Vedic Aryans as plunderers. 

To build up the entire history of a subcontinent upon a new linguistic approach which had never proved itself as a valid tool of historical interpretation was indeed hasty, and not surprisingly has turned out to be erroneous. Such linguistic "evidence" we should note is only speculation.
