Early Indians Who are we Indians Where did we come from Many of us believe our ancestors have lived in South Asia since time immemorial But, as it turns out, time immemorial may not have been all that long ago To tell us the story of our ancestry, journalist Tony Joseph goes 65,000 years into the past when a band of modern humans, or Homo sapiens, first made their way from Africa into the Indian subcontinent Citing recent DNA evidence, he traces the subsequent large migrations of modern humans into India of agriculturalists from Iran between 7000 and 3000 BCE and pastoralists from the Central Asian Steppe between 2000 and 1000 BCE, among others As Joseph unravels our history using the results of genetic and other research, he takes head on some of the most controversial and uncomfortable questions of Indian history Who were the Harappans Did the Aryans really migrate to India Are North Indians genetically different from South Indians And are the various castes genetically distinct groups This book relies heavily on path breaking DNA research of recent years But it also presents earlier archaeological and linguistic evidence all in an entertaining and highly readable manner A hugely significant book, Early Indians authoritatively and bravely puts to rest several ugly debates on the ancestry of modern Indians It not only shows us how the modern Indian population came to be composed as it is, but also reveals an undeniable and important truth about who we are we are all migrants And we are all mixed.

    Indians are a people who are always a bit confused about their identity as Indians maybe because the nation itself is a relatively recent construct not ignoring the mythical Bharata and the regional and caste identities arestrongly embedded Ever since the West discovered the mystic East, there have been attempts to create an Indian past which is wholly spiritual based on the mythical, Vedic Aryan by the proponents of the enlightenment In colonial times, this Aryan became Indians are a people who are always a bit confused about their identity as Indians maybe because the nation itself is a relatively recent construct not ignoring the mythical Bharata and the regional and caste identities arestrongly embedded Ever since the West discovered the mystic East, there have been attempts to create an Indian past which is wholly spiritual based on the mythical, Vedic Aryan by the proponents of the enlightenment In colonial times, this Aryan became an invading race who destroyed the mature Harappan civilisation the same figure was taken to be the epitome of race purity and became the basis of the toxic Nazi doctrine And later on, in a reversal of the myth, the invading Aryan became the villain who destroyed the peaceful Dravidian civilisation in the Dalit version of history.All these are now discounted by serious historians The widely accepted theory about Indian prehistory is that the Harappan civilisation perished because of a severe drought, and the Indo A...

    India has had a weird relationship with its history prior to Mauryan empire History by its nature is imprecise but, in this case, confusion is compounded by the fact that Harappan script remains undeciphered and there are very few archaeological remains of Vedic society The confusion has only been furthered by ideologically motivated or imaginative thinkers who have colored this phase of history with their own agendas Top example remains forcibly trying to conflate Harrapans with Vedic societ India has had a weird relationship with its history prior to Mauryan empire History by its nature is imprecise but, in this case, confusion is compounded by the fact that Harappan script remains undeciphered and there are very few archaeological remains of Vedic society The confusion has only been furthered by ideologically motivated or imaginative thinkers who have colored this phase of history with their own agendas Top example remains forcibly trying to conflate Harrapans with Vedic society by force fitting Harrapan civilization as Sarasvati civilization Other examples include myths of Aryan purity, artificial divide between Dravidians North Indians and nature and scale of Vedic society itself What remains underappreciated in this mess is that Harappan Civilisation was the largest and most widespread of its time with large population and huge cities which ideally should make us prou...

    There is an image of the famous dancing girl of Harappa on the cover of this book as a nod perhaps to common knowledge that Early Indians for most of us refers to the Harappan Civilization Then, we are told, came the Aryans who somehow settled peacefully or not with the Harappans Think of it have you ever asked yourself where did the Harappans come from The author tries to answer this rather grand question in 230 pages Starting almost 300,000 years ago with the evolution of man this There is an image of the famous dancing girl of Harappa on the cover of this book as a nod perhaps to common knowledge that Early Indians for most of us refers to the Harappan Civilization Then, we are told, came the Aryans who somehow settled peacefully or not with the Harappans Think of it have you ever asked yourself where did the Harappans come from The author tries to answer this rather grand question in 230 pages Starting almost 300,000 years ago with the evolution of man this breathless book attempts to combine everything that is happening in the world of ancient DNA, archaeology and linguistics to answer the question who were the Early Indians and where or how the hell did they get here That the book is up to date is an understatement There are references to papers from 2018 conjuring in me the image of Tony Joseph running to th...

    Tony Joseph s new book Early Indians The Story of Our Ancestors and Where We Came From attempts to sell the colonial Aryan Invasion Theory s insidious 21st century version the Aryan Migration Myth on the basis of racist, Hinduphobic Harvard geneticist David Reich s thoroughly discredited research.The legendary Russian archaeologist Leo Klejn has thoroughly debunked Reich s pro AIT research.The New York Times has exposed Reich s dubious, deeply flawed research methodology, alleged un...
