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.
