As the Aryans were made
into a race, so were the Dravidians and the Aryan/Dravidian divide was
turned into a racial war, the Aryan invaders versus the indigenous Dravidians of
Harappa and Mohenjodaro. By this view the Vedic people promoted the superiority of their race and
language and simply drove away those of different races or languages.
We have already discussed how
Sanskrit Aryan is never a racial term but a title of respect. Even the
Dravidian kings called themselves Aryan. Nor is there anything in Vedic literature that places the
Dravidians outside of the greater Vedic culture and ancestry. Hence to place Aryan
against Dravidian as terms is itself a misuse of language. Be that as it may, the Aryan and
Dravidian divide has also failed to prove itself.
