BASIS OF THE ARYAN INVASION THEORY
The Aryan invasion theory requires a west-to-east movement of populations from Central Asia into India, evidence for which in ancient India does not exist. The relocation of populations within India that Schaffer speaks of is from the Sarasvati region, when it dried up, to the Ganges, in which the continuity of culture was preserved. This agrees with the Hindu literary record which places the Vedic civilization on the Sarasvati, shifting to the Puranic civilization on the Ganges. The only real west-to-east movement in ancient India was of the Harappan (Sarasvati) peoples themselves, not of any outside invaders.

Let us continue and examine the details of the invasion theory and how they have been invalidated.
