“Return Of The Aryans” By Bhagwan S. Gidwani

“Return of the Aryans” is one of those books that you really want to believe in but do not know whether you can believe or not. This is a book by Bhagwan S. Gidwani who became famous after his previous book “The Sword of Tipu Sultan” became a much celebrated TV series. In this book he has given his own point of view about the origin of Aryans and how they came to live in India. According to various theories which came up in past few centuries, Aryans originated somewhere in northern Europe 5000-10000 years ago and then they travelled to India and settled here and that resulted in very advanced civilization in India. But in this book, author has contested this theory.

According to the author, Aryans actually originated in India and due to some conflicts they had to leave the country and travel to various places. They became more powerful and then they returned back to India and these were the people who eventually created the same advanced civilization. He has given lots of arguments to prove his theory. The main argument being that all the places in Europe or far east that were considered as origin points of Aryans do not have any historical evidence of Aryan civilization. It almost looks as if they suddenly came into being and then travelled to India. He has also tried to convince readers by giving the origin of various names of mountains, lakes found in Europe and have linked them to hindu names.

As I said in beginning, being an Indian you want to believe this theory but probably the arguments are not sufficient. At the same time, it does not mean that we should completely discard this theory because the theory definitely has some merit. I am also not a believer of all that fabricated history that was written many centuries ago to justify imperialism or supremacy of a particular religion. But finding real truth about something that happened 10000 years ago is no easy task and maybe this will remain mystery forever.

    so, europeans say that the “actual indians” came from europe?
    so why are the europeans so fucked up today?
    😛

    the thing is history is written by the conquerors, and India has never been an oppressor.
    if literate marvels like Bhagwan are written off in this dismissal fashion by monkeys trying to read books..
    then it is only because the rich literature and philosophy has been unavailable to these faction due to the heavy militisation of knowledge, by the whites.
    don’t call me a racist, when if i use whites, for whites.

    if you really believe it..
    the aryan dravidian theory is based upon racism based on color..
    wonder where that comes from..

      It is true that history is written by victors but it is sad to see that civilizations have embraced that history and have not made attempts to correct it.

      Unfortunately, I have found that lot of Indians have criticized the book. I guess the whole generations have been influenced by the concepts of western history.
