The Dravidian claim to be
indigenous to India has, like the Aryan, been discredited by linguistic argument. Yet
the argument brings the Aryans and Dravidians back into contact with
each other and derives them from the same region, suggesting a long term association between them
outside of India.
However if we give up the invasion model such association can be
better explained by contact within India which we know was an historical
fact. Certainly the present population of India - which even the ancient Greeks and Persians
regarded as dark-skinned - was not produced by light-skinned people from Central
Asia (whether Aryan or Dravidian).
