The Aryan invasion myth was propogated by the British to further divide India on North-South lines, apart from the religious divide they actively pursued. If there are Indians who still believe it (and need a foreign study to negate that belief), I don't see much future for the unity of this country.
darvidians(dark skinned) are the early settlers in several parts of India mostly in south of India and several islands nearby.
Aryans are the tribes who came a little later who were brown and fair skinned people also settled in various parts of India.
Both the tribes originated from Africa but since the Dravidian tribe belongs to the early group which settled in south India and parts of Australia and other few islands their culture and looks are closely inlined with Africans.The Aryan tribe because of their long travelling and settling in several parts of Europe before settling in India have a different type of appearance and culture.
Like the article says few tribes have mixed and produced new tribe.
there is a detailed documentary by discovery channel about this article give in the OP. DNA analysis have been done on how the early humans traveled from Africa and settled in different parts of the world thousands of years ago.
I firmly believe that the human race originated in Africa.
both tribes/civilisation originated in central asia (ofcourse disputable )...and migrated to india (north)..the dravidians then migrated both north and south from indus.......
Dravidian's are early African tribes who settled in north,south India and many other islands near by India as well as Australia.Thats is why you can see similarites between sri-lankan,south Indian tribes with certain tribes in Australia and Africa.This has been proven genetically with DNA many times.I am a Dravidian and i know how similar many rituals in my village in south of tamil nadu are with certain African rituals.
Dravidian or Aryans never originated from central asia but aryans settled in central Asia before moving to India.Any race which is existing now no matter which part of the world they belong to were originally from Africa.
Am curious, rajapraveen, being from South Tamil Nadu myself. What rituals do you believe we have in common with African tribes?
The way old men and women dress in my village.Wearing big golden jewelery in the ear which makes the ear elongated(seen in my great grand mother).Ive seen many dance preformed in villages which are similar. animal sacrifice to God's(can describe in detail but might be kind of disturbing).Which is your native in south Tamilnadu? i belong to a place near Tirunelveli.This can differ between caste(i am a Nadar) and religion but my statement is based upon observing the majority of the communities.
of cource the skin color.
This video might help.

THE AFRICAN PRESENCE IN INDIA: A PHOTO ESSAY
There are many such similarities between a lot of tribes in the world, Raja. This in itself may not be construed as evidence that natives of South Tamilnadu are in fact related to the Africans.
I would not go even so far as to say that the skin colour is similar. True African colour is the kind of black that only very few 'Dravidians' have. Ours is the brown-black, not totally black as of Africans. Also there are huge variations in morphology. The average African male is taller, more powerful and with different sets to his nose, forehead and chin. Even the lips are entirely different from say the average Southern Indian.
I consider Madurai my native place. Although originally my ancestors hail from Thanjavur.
Lets agree to disagree on this. I dont think there is any direct proof that today's people of Southern Tamil Nadu once hailed from Africa.
If you could give me some link for the DNA study though, that could be very helpful.
But yes, I do tend to believe that humans originated out of Africa. So, by that token, everybody is related to them in one way or other, I guess. I just dont see a direct relation between Southern Indians and Africans. A remote one cannot be ruled out, of course. As in the case of almost the entire human species, probably.
also africans who settled in the USA and South Indians Produce some great "Music".Certain tribes are more Closely in-line with their ancestors in Africa but certain are not, The same applies to people in south of Tamil Nadu or India for that matter. I am not saying every single tribe of people who are living in south Tamil Nadu are directly related to African tribes, but I believe many tribes of south India are closely related to their ancestors in Africa.
