We are Not Aryans or Dravidians



1, Eldams Road, Teynampet
Chennai, Tamilnadu 600018 India


A corrupted narrative of the history of the Bharatiya civilization took root during colonial period, serving the interests of the missionaries and Eurocentric colonizers. This corrupted narrative is today embraced by further ideological entities such as the Socialist Academia and the Marxists. In service of such interests was born the spurious notion of Aryans and Dravidians, and in less than 200 years has become deeply programmed into minds, with destructive impact on the identity of Indians. In this talk the speaker deconstructs the narratives and shows how these identities were manufactured, and the true identity of Indians today.


Raj Vedam


Raj Vedam holds a doctorate degree in Electrical Engineering with many years of multi-disciplinary experience, and has developed a strong research interest in the history of sciences, mathematics and technology. His research shows unacknowledged but significant contributions of ancient Indians to sciences and math, impacting several civilizations over different periods of time. While Western texts on the subject enforce a parochial narrative sourcing all sciences and math from ancient Greece or Rome or Egypt, Raj Vedam presents contrary facts and evidence to show their indebtedness to the Indian civilization. He has presented his findings in over 200 public talks, several teacher training workshops, several research publications, and offers two courses on the same at Hindu University of America.
