The Origin of Mahabharat
Mahabharata in Sanskrit is one of the two great epics of India. Ved Vyasa is said to have dictated it to Lord Ganesha. Ved Vyas is also known as Krishna Dwipayana meaning the dark skinned one born in an island to Matsya Gandhi (one smelling like fish or fisher women) and also known as Satyavati.
Sanskrit is an Indo European language brought into India by the migrant Pre Vedic Aryans around 2000 BCE and is refined in India. Ved Vyasa is known so as he split (edited) previously existing Vedic knowledge into four parts. Before the arrival Aryans into India, Bhils (Bhil cognate with Vill or Villu) are the major population of India along with Mundari tribes who are Native Indians. All these tribes are genetically same according to population genetic studies and are dark skinned. The genetic mixing of the dark skinned Natives with fair skinned migrant Aryans started from 2000 BCE till 500 CE.
We may note that there is a version of Bharata of Doongri Bhils (see the note by Satya Chaitanya cited in ref. 4) that might be earlier than that of Vyasa’s. I am of the opinion that the Vyasa’s version of Maha Bharata is based on the original Bhil version.

Note: This study is based on Bheel Bharatha, by Dr Bhagavandas Patel, who spent four years among the Doongri Bheels studying the epic that is an oral tradition among them. His contribution to literature in general, and folk literature and Mahabharata study in particular, is invaluable. The book has been published by Sahitya Akademi, New Delhi with an excellent translation of its prose in Hindi by Dr Mridula Parik.
Though I have called the epic Bheel Bharata throughout, the Bheel name is Bharath [th pronounced as in rath, meaning chariot], which is a neuter word in Doongri Bheel, and means war, obviously derived from (Maha)bharata.
Vedic Aryans and Population Genetics
The thorniest, most fought-over question in Indian history is slowly but surely getting answered: did Indo-European language speakers, who called themselves Aryans, stream into India sometime around 2,000 BC – 1,500 BC when the Indus Valley civilisation came to an end, bringing with them Sanskrit and a distinctive set of cultural practices? Genetic research based on an avalanche of new DNA evidence is making scientists around the world converge on an unambiguous answer: yes, they did. The Hindu, 17 June 2017. Tony Joseph
Population Genetic Research clearly show that R1a carrying populations migrated (from Middle East, Central Asia and Europe that is MECAE) to India and genetically mixed up with Natives around 2000 BCE. Whether these R1a carriers Invaded India or migrated in search of food and employment is a different question. Dr. Ambedkar thought that migrants might have indulged in skirmishes with the Native Indians.
It is important to note that Rig Veda was composed/ edited during 1500 to 1200 BCE that is almost 500 years after the genetic mixing up of migrant MECA people with Native Indians. Thus the people who called themselves Arya (Aryan) in the Rig Veda are not MECA people but probably are the descendants of MECA and the Native Indians. See for example Veda Vyas is Krishna Dwipayana, meaning ‘the dark skinned born in island’. Most importantly Vedic Aryans have ancestry to both Native Indians and MECA people. Thus MECA people may be called pre Vedic Aryans. Interestingly Rig Veda praises Saraswati as Mighty Flood which apparently dried up around 3000 BCE that is much before the arrival of MECA people. Vedic Aryans might have learned about Saraswati River through their Native Indian ancestors. There is mis translated continuity from Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) to Vedic period. According to Iravathan Mahadevan, Maran the trader during IVC period who used to barter at ampali (cross road) becomes Pusan the God of traders in Rig Veda who ate gruel (ambali) because he had no teeth! Ampali is misunderstood as ambali!!
Apparently Indo- European speaking MECA people are just uncivilised nomadic tribes who came to India with horses and without any civilization and hence took up Native Indian culture/civilisation/ religion and Aryanised the same. Thus Poleramma the mother Goddess of IVC peopled became ‘Kali Mata’ the dark skinned mother Goddess and her younger brother ‘Potu Raju’ became Pashu Pati. Potu in Telugu (a Dravidian language) means male animal (roughly Pashu in Sanskrit) and Raju is Pati meaning ruler.
Genetic Research shows that the Original/Pre Vedic Aryans are not native to India and Sanskrit is not purely Indian. Futile attempts to show that Aryans are Indian lead us nowhere.
What kind of people they are? Indresh Kumar of RSS says “meat is disease and milk is cure” at Jamia Milia Islamia! Outlook, 6th June2 017. The world consumes meat/beef and survived. Proofs that beef was eaten by ancient Hindus and is eaten by many Hindus today: Sanjeev Sabhlok. http://beef.sabhlokcity.com/2010/10/proofs-that-beef-was-eaten-by-ancient-hindus-and-by-many-hindus-today/
It is unfortunate that we are under the rule of the cowdom of Modi, a cunning and double faced man. He has to answer why his police man Vanjara (Gujarat police)/ his men killed (in Gujarat) Sahrabuddin a criminal and extortionist of Udaipur, Rajasthan and why the wife of Sahrabuddin, Kausarbi was raped and murdered? In India police commit criminal acts on the orders of their political bosses. Police and Political Bosses control and operate through some criminals to achieve their clandestine goals. See for example the case of Nayeem an ex Naxalite turned police controlled criminal who was killed by police!
Animal Sacrifice during some Vedic Rituals is well known. Animal Sacrifice is discontinued under the pressure of Buddhism/ Jainism during Medieval period. Vegetarianism is not Hindu! Today vegetarianism is only Jain and some Brahmins became vegetarian. There are non Brahmin/Jain vegetarians by choice! Food habits are personal either by cultural heritage or by choice. It is idiotic/ foolish and undemocratic to control the food habits of others.
During medieval period Jaina was one of the popular religions in Telugu Land and also in South India. Jainism was violently wiped out from South India by Veera Saiva followers. Do you know why?
Is milk cure? There are arguments that dairy products cause breast cancer. It is also said that Chinese do not use dairy products and hence do not suffer breast cancer.
Here is another gem of a thought, “RSS wing has prescription for fair, tall ‘customised’ babies”, Written by Ashutosh Bhardwaj | New Delhi | Updated: May 7, 2017 4:49 am, http://indianexpress.com/article/india/rss-wing-has-prescription-for-fair-tall-customised-babies-4644280/ There are people who knew the trick “niyoga parampara”. That is what Nambudris were doing in Kerala, till recently! Was Asaram Bapu doing the same thing in Gujarat? Dark skinned, short parents can get fair skinned, tall babies! Why is this craze of RSS for fair skin? Do they want to be like their fair skinned ancestors who migrated from Siberia? If fair skin is ‘uttama santati’ then why worship dark skinned Krishna, Rama, Siva?
It is said that sage Yagyavalka was fond of beef. Bhavabhuti described Rishi Vasisht as an avid beef eater. Lord Rama consumed deer meat. By saying that meat is disease, Is not Indresh kumar insulting meat consumers? What if Trump bans the entry of non meat eaters into USA? What if Arab countries follows suit? Are you prepared RSS? What if the meat eaters who are majority in India ask RSS guys to leave the country!
Mamata Benerjee, the Lioness
I am stunned at the tough stand taken by Mamata Benerjee on the beef issue and the new rules framed by Modi Government. In fact Andhra has more beef consumers and the leaders of the main parties are silent there probably because of fear of corruption cases against them. CM Kerala reacted against the new rules imposed by BJP Government.
One may consider Cow as Mother but asking others to accept it is too much. One has to blame Mrs Indira Gandhi for ‘beef banning issue’ and Rajiv Gandhi for Ram Mandir issue. The youth congress of Kerala reacted to the new rules but Rahul Gandhi suspends them. Congress is wiped out in Andhra because of foolish judgement in dividing Andhra Pradesh. Now we may expect wiping out of congress from Kerala too. Is it not time to dissolve Indian National Congress and merge it with TrinamoolCongress?

(2) “After a survey of the evidence from various excavations since 1921, the doyen of Indian archaeologists, H.D. Sankalia, has opined that � the attitude towards cow slaughter shows that until the beginning of the Christian era the cow/ ox were regularly slaughtered for food and for the sacrifice etc., in spite of the preaching of Ahimsa by Mahavira and the Buddha. Beef eating, however, did decrease owing to these preachings, but never died out completely�� http://iis-db.stanford.edu/evnts/824/Panikkar_speech.pdf
Three Years of Cowdom in India
The Government of Modi Ji has completed three years. Development for all is the main election promise. The development is sought to be achieved by inviting foreign companies to establish industries in India, that is ‘make in India’. The net result during these three years is a slight dip in the employment! As such the scheme ‘make in India’ is defeatist!! It took a Mahatma Gandhi to drive away ‘East India Company’. Modi ji wants more foreign companies in India. How many companies came to India? Can’t we Indians make in India for India?
Since Modi’s government came to power at Delhi tolerance towards intellectuals decreased. Violence against Muslims, the so called Dalits and young women increased. It can be seen everywhere. The debate on ‘talaq’ is provoked. Why talaq, just abandon the wife!
The central issue of the Modi’s Government appears ‘the cow’. A couple of Muslims were killed to protect ‘the cow’. Why one section of the society wants to dictate others what to eat or what not? Majority of Indians are non vegetarians. In Andhra all poorer sections (probably except Brahmins who may be 5% of the population of Andhra) consume beef. Brahmins of Andhra never protested beef in the past. Unlike in Tamil Nadu there is no anti Brahmin attitude in Andhra. Beef is cheap and nutritious.
It must be said that the original culprit on ‘cow slaughter’ is Indian National Congress (INC) and its leader Late Smt Indira Gandhi.
Of late Modi Government imposed restrictions on sale and purchase of cattle and the Madras High Court stayed the order. Beef is consumed in South India, Bengal and North East. Probably Beef is not popular in BiMaRU states. If stretched too far the beef may cause disunity of the Nation. If someone does not consume Beef it is OK. If someone considers Cow as his mother it too is OK. If someone drinks cow urine it too is OK. Expecting others to consider cow as their mother is atrocious. How can a cow be mother of a human? You are free to entertain you belief but imposing your belief on others? That too, unscientific and irrational belief. What will advanced Western Countries think of us? Is not Modi inviting people from beef consuming countries to set shop in India? To make in India? Funny, is it not?
This gentle man a former MP from BJP supposedly defending that Indians do not discriminate people (Nigerians in the present case) on the basis of the colour of the skin said that South Indians are dark skinned and yet …………. This is the true ideology of BJP and RSS. They do not forget their Aryan ancestry! Go on eulogizing their ancestral, Indo- European language.
Well Tarun, the fair skinned, Indo – European speakers, carrying R1a haplogroup (gene marker) came to India around 2000 BCE. No no they did not invade, just came begging here. They mixed up with dark skinned Native Indians genetically. Native Indians does not mean South Indians. Native Indians include Bhil, Mundari and other Tribes of North India. You worship dark skinned Gods such as Lords Rama, Krishna, and Shiva and so on, is it not? Have you ever thought why your Gods are Dark Skinned? You know the great sage ‘Veda Vyasa’ is ‘Krishna Dwipayana’ the dark skinned born in an island! If you are still interested in your white skinned ancestors who came from South Siberia, why can’t you go back? Do you think that your utterances lead to National Unity? Show me one Indian who does no bear the genes of “dark skinned” Bhils and Mundaris? Get your genes checked!
You all know that Modi shouts in the public meetings instead of addressing/ talking. Yesterday Modi was joking about someone who talked of coconut juice! Modi further explained that lime gives juice and coconut gives water! Vow Modi Ji!! Later a TV channel showed Rahul Gandhi talking about pine apple juice and its marketing in UK.
What Modi wants to tell the Nation? Or the electorate? That Modi is better than Pakodi? Sir Jee, if Rahul talks of pine apple how you listened it as coconut? To whom you are explaining that coconut contains water and not juice? Don’t you know that coconut milk is nothing but ‘coconut juice’? Modi Ji ‘ab coconut kaha chupaoge’?
Anda, Venda aur Genda! These are our political leaders. Are you happy?
Bhils (North India), Chenchu (Andhra Pradesh), Munda (Central India), Gond, Kol, tribes of India along with Mala, Madiga castes (of Andhra) are the Native Indians living in India since 60000 years and much before that period (Stone Age). Eurasians (Pre Vedic Aryans, the carriers of R1a haplogroup) came to India around 2000 BCE and genetically mixed up with Natives.
