                            ARYAN INVASION THEORY

           Britishers while invading India in 18th century came across the vedic scripts and the Sanskrit language.Tumbled by the magnificent grammatical structure of the Sanskrit language,a committee was setup to speculate a story around Sanskrit,then evolved the "Aryan invasion theory",it was a historic attempt made by the Europeans in the 19th century B.C to take the credit of inventing Sanskrit and the advanced civilization that had flourished in the valleys of ancient India.

Scholars of the nineteenth century, the highly venerated Max Muller is appointed in the committee to makeup a convincing theory.Max Muller, one of many Christian missionaries to India, was firmly committed to the Biblical account of creation. Muller accepted the date of creation given in the Bible at 4004 BC and the great flood at 1500 BC. This compelled him to date the Rig Veda much later in time than an impartial scientist would have done. Muller had to fit the entire Vedic tradition into a time-frame following the great flood, which Biblical scholars held took place in 1500 BC.Muller wrote a letter to his wife, dated 1886, in which he said “The translation of the Veda will hereafter tell to a great extent on the fate of India and on the growth of millions of souls in that country. It is the root of their religion, and to show them what the root is, I feel sure, is the only way of uprooting all that has sprung from it during the last 3,000 years”.These are hardly the words of an unbiased scientist. No matter how great Muller’s scholarly reputation, we have to examine his reasons for setting the dates around 1000 to 12000 BC. 

 But why did Europeans created AIT?

  To many European scholars of the nineteenth century the idea that the family of European languages family could have originated in India was unthinkable. It was just not culturally acceptable to think that the roots of European language and culture could be traced to darker-skinned peoples indigenous to India. So European thinkers began to speculate about a pre-historic “proto-Indo-European” race who had migrated from somewhere in Western Asia, perhaps around the Black Sea, Eastern Europe, or Russia, to settle in India. This,was a purely racial and cultural bias, with no basis in archaeological fact.

Aryans is a race of light skinned,blonde haired. Aryan invaded India from outside around 1,500 BC, pushing the dark-skinned natives, called Dravidians,into the south.This myth persisted long after an overwhelming body of scientific evidence, and a consensus of archeologists, showed that it is completely weak. It must be discredited before we can get an accurate picture of the character of Vedic Civilization.    
As we will see, the Veda was first “cognized,” not by invading races from outside India, but by a people who had lived continuously in India for thousands of years.
Also, the dates commonly ascribed to the origin of the Vedic tradition are probably off by many thousands of years. Archeologists at Harvard, Oxford, and other top universities in the US and Europe are now widely agreed that there was no invasion of India from outside that displaced the peoples of the Saraswati and Iudus river valleys. This civilization arose within northern India and there is also evidence, which i will elucidate as we go further.

 Sir William Jones was the first to show that there are many common words shared by Sanskrit and European languages. Speaking to the Asiatic Society in Calcutta on February, jones made a statement which was soon to become quite famous: "the Sanskrit language, has a wonderful structure; more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin, and more exquisitely refined than either,yet bearing to both of them a stronger affinity, both in the roots of verbs and in the forms of grammar, than could possibly have been produced by accident; so strong, indeed, that no philosopher could examine them all three".

This is the end of the introduction to AIT. Every syllable of this article is the research of kenneth chandler Ph.D.

This subject is deep and vast,conceiving it in one page is not possible.I will cover the rest in my next article.
