I want to request the Archeological Survey of India about any proofs they have gathered to substantiate the Aryan Invasion Theory, which is taught to school children at an early age amounting to brainwashing.
While at school I protested and debated with my history teacher that neither our mythology nor our language/culture can support that baseless theory, it is hurting more and more when some supra intelligent person like Justice Katzu publishes in the entire national media an article stating "India has been a nation of immigrants".
It is time we decide once and for all if this AIT has any substance at all or if it doesn't then scrap that from our school text books.
If at all a war had been fought by the so called Aryans and Dravidians, as put forward by Max Mueller, either the winners or the losers would have recorded that war in their history, folklore, stories, etc; one section for celebrating their victory and the other section as a means to revenge that defeat. There has been no literary, folklore, jaanapadha, or whatever evidence that can give slight clue to such a war, in any of the Indian languages-- neither the samskrutham recorded such event nor any of the south indian languages recorded that.
Another important factor often overlooked by experts is that none of the south Indian languages claim to be a derivative of so called language Dravidian. As far as thelugu is concerned, I read poetry that is more than 1000 years old which plays jokes at the Dravidian(Tamilian) people and culture. I heard the same from some Kannada folks that their literature does not hold Dravidian as a parent or any superior language and on the otherhand treat it with fun. Similarly, there are instances when Tamilian literature made fun of other south indian languages, several hundred years ago. Neither Thelugu, nor Kannada claim that they have their origins in Dravida language; in fact for those two languages, Dravida means Tamil alone. Nannayya, a theulug poet, wrote 1000 years ago that thelugu is an admixture of Samskrutham and Praakrutham as his first few words in a dictionary of thelugu grammer and sounds that he wrote.
So, I would like get some help from the RTI gurus here on how I can file an RTI application with ASI to get any information they may have on this subject. I would want to pursue the issue with PIL in Supreme Court of India as the next once I get relevant information from ASI.
Also, please provide information regarding the postal address, and how & on whose behalf I need to pay the fee.
Thanking in advance,
