OF THE ARYAN INVASION THEORY
There is no trail that they have left
that can be traced back to any Central Asian homeland. Whatever
of this nature has been proposed has not stood the test of time.
There is nothing to separate the so-called Aryans from the
non-Aryans in terms of culture, religion or populations.
Recent finds in archeology have filled in the gap of time from the
Harappan to the post-Harappan age (1900-1000 BC), which was
originally regarded as the "Vedic dark age" wherein the Aryan
invasion could be placed because there was no evidence of anything
to the contrary. What was thought to be a post-Harappan decline owing
to the invading Aryans has now been found not to have merely a relocation and development of
Harappan culture following the drying up of the Sarasvati along
less urban lines but preserving all the main elements of Harappan
culture, including an expansion of the number of villages.
