Pandya King fought along the Pandavas,his daughter was married to Arjuna when hwas on a Pilgrimage to South. So this argument that the Tamil and the Vedic people were mutually exclusive is erroneous and mischievous. 2.The Vedic people considered the Dravidians as Barbarians and uncultured. They were called as Dasyu meaning Slaves. Again sheer nonsense.
I had a very interesting comment on my post on Electricity and Vedas shared in Facebook. The comment was to the effect that the information in the Indian Texts are so allegorical and descriptive that it is very difficult to sift Data from these. True, My reply was that I have, with the help of references from the Internet and Books, have been positing articles and these may be found under Astrophysics and Science. Interpretations of the Vedic texts depends on the reader as well. Apart from a good exposure to Sanskrit one has to have a grounding in Indian Philosophical systems, not only the Vedas and the subject matter he wants to look for in the Vedas. If one wants to find references to Quantum Theory, one should have a clear understanding of Quantum so that one knows what to look for. I found an interesting interpretation of the Purusha Sukta. Based on the first two lines a Prototype of an Electrical Motor was developed and it generated Power! The Power Input was 126 Watts, Output 303 Watts. This is achievement as there is an additional generation of Power from 126 to 333. Quantum Theory states there is a Vacuum at the Sub-Atomic level, called the Quantum Vacuum Field. Hinduism differs here. It states that there is no vacuum but Ether that contains Electricity. I recently delivered a Lecture on this subject. I shall post an article and Video on this shortly. Now Power from Purusha Sukta.
Efforts to wipe out Hinduism and the Hindu Scriptures have been made. And it has been successful in a limited way, thanks to the oral traditions of the Vedas and the unstinting followers of the Vedas, The Brahmins. I have posted how the Great African Religion was literally wiped out to the extent that even the natives of Africa still believe that they have been tribal and mostly uncivilized. Similar attempts have been made and ae being made about Indonesia and especially Bali Islands You can get the information from the web that Hinduism entered Bali some time around First Century BC, this too is given out in a condescending manner. The position is, Hinduism in its Vedic form has been the Religion of Indonesian islands. The Ramayana and the Mahabharata are still being told there with vaiations. Tamils History state that these areas were conquered by the Tamil Kings of the Sangam Era, about 200o years ago. Vedas were being chanted and a version of the Vedas , called 'Catur Veda Sirah, The Head of Four Vedas'
Now there are research papers quoting the Rig Veda , and the recent archaeological evidence , state that there existed another River from the Himalayas joining the Arabian Sea. And there were urban settlements , numbering around 800! And the same research also states that The RigVeda has also been speaking of this Land mass's culture. And adds that the Hindus lived even 50, 000 years ago practicing Sanatana Dharma.
They knew the classification of Species. Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution , Survival of the Fittest was expressed. An Santi Parva of Mahabharata,Section XV Arjuna speaks of the world of Microbes,'which ,though not seen by the naked eyes, support Life" Talks of Darwinism when he says that the strongest survive by feeding and annihilating them. The Mobile and the Immobile world is Food for Living creatures. Jainism had such an advanced knowledge and Piety, the Jain Monks use to sweep the path they travel gently with a fan made of Peacock feathers to make sure that the smaller organisms are not unintentionally killed by them. Kara , Dhooshana, Inderjith and Ravana's Moola Sena were adept at fighting biological warfare. Our Vedic literature recorded about 740 plants and 250 animals. ¨ The first attempt of classification is observed in Chandyogya Upanishad, which classified animals into three categories — Jivaja(Viviparous = giving birth to young ones), e.g. mammals, Andaja(Oviparous = egg lying), e.g. birds, reptiles, insects and worms, andUdbhija (Vegetal origin), e.g. minute animals. Post-Vedic Indian literature, such as Susruta Samhita (600 BC) classified all 'substances' into sthavara (immobile), e.g. plants, jangama (mobile), e.g. animals. ¨ Plants were further subdivided into Vanaspati (fruit yielding non-flowering plants), Vriksha (both fruit yielding and flowering plants),Virudha (shrubs and creepers), and Osadhi (plants that die with ripening of fruits).
