Along with the difference of
language there is a difference of skin color from north to south of India,
with the southerners being darker in skin color (though northerners are hardly light in color
by Western standards, with the exception of some people of the far northwest).
Though a less pronounced difference than
that of language it has been lumped together along with it again assuming that race and
language must be the same. The Aryan invasion theory has been
used to explain both the linguistic and racial differences between the
peoples of North and South India, and such differences have been put forth as "proof" of the invasion
(as if no other explanation were possible).
