Dr. P. Priyadarshi at IITK- History of Ancient India over last 1 lakh years

 

 

 

This talk is the first talk of the 2 day lecture series on Indology, organized by Vivekananda Samiti, IIT Kanpur on 25-26 Sept., 2012.

Abstract:

The recent DNA studies have revealed that after origin in Africa, a small group of Individuals reached India in about 85,000 years before present, then early human expansion occurred in India from where rest of the world was populated. Even majority of the African humanity has genetically descended from this earliest Indian genetic stock. In year 74,000 Before Present, the Mount Toba eruption destroyed all human beings except about 1000 persons in India and 10,000 in Africa.

 

The period was marked by glacier (74,000-65,000 years back and 20,000-16,000 ybp) and inter-glacier periods. Every time glaciations occurred, it restricted the human populations to the warmer regions like India, equatorial Africa and the Southeast Asia. But when the globe warmed again, human population expanded to reach the northern regions. During all these expansion events, India played a crucial role in dissipation of man, language and culture to the world. The DNA studies also found that the Indians of today have not arrived from anywhere else, but have descended from the original human stock of the 85,000 years back. The Dravidian, Indo-European, and other languages of India are all indigenous in their respective locations of the sub-continent. On the other hand, the Europeans have reached there from India over the last 12,000 years or so. Not only this the genetic proof suggests that the Indians domesticated cow, goat, sheep, horse and buffalo, as well as wheat, barley, rice and pulses, which laid to the foundations of the modern civilization.

 

About the Speaker: Dr. P. Priyadarshi, MBBS, MD, MRCP (UK), FRCP Edin is an accomplished doctor, who has interests in history, philosophy, religions, anthropology, political science and linguistics. He has authored books on Indology viz. India�s Contributions to the West (2004), Zero is Not the Only Story (2007), The First Civilization of the World (2011) and Vishva Sabhyata ka Udbhava aur Prasar (2012). He has proved from the DNA studies that not only the Aryan and the Draviadian Invasion theories are wrong, but actually the it was the Indian population migration which produced the modern populations of Europe, China and the Southeast Asia. Dr Priyadarshi has also written articles and books on the ancient Indian science and their impact on world.

This talk discussed the following topics:

Glimpses of Classical Physics in Ancient India

 

There was a rich tradition of science in ancient India. Although not many ancient texts are available today, yet we get some information about the presence of physical sciences from the Vedic texts. The oldest science treatise available today is the Vaisheshika Sutra by Kanada from 6th century BC. The text discusses velocity, kinetic and potential energy, momentum among many other concepts.

 

India, the Origin of World's Civilizations as Evident from Genetic Studies

 

The genetic studies prove that the various Indian communities and tribes are the descendants of the original settlers of India, and that they did not arrive in India from Central Asia, West Asia, Southeast Asia or China. While leaving India, the early Indians took with them breeds of domestic cows and plant species, besides the art of farming, about 15,000 to 10,000 years back. The waves of expansion took place out of India, every time the glacial maximum receded.
