There is an ongoing Genographic Project as a genetic anthropological study that aims to map historical human migration patterns by collecting and analyzing DNA samples from hundreds of thousands of people from around the world. Apparently it sounds purely scientific, but the interpretations that have started emanating after about a few hundred thousand samples have been analysed point to sinister designs. The project team seems to be on right track with regard to the Journey of Mankind, but is smelling of ulterior motives when it comes to the associated Journey of Civilisation. As far as Indiais concerned, there are enough and more reasons to believe that the new project is nothing but an attempt to resurrect the ghosts of Max Muller and McCaulay.

It is now common knowledge that Aryan Invasion (later Migration) Theory (AIT) was propounded and propagated by the erstwhile colonial rulers in order to keep Indiadivided forever. The mention of two races, Aryans and Dravidians, is found no where in any ancient Indian text, but the half-baked European scholars in Sanskrit thought it will be a brilliant tool to drive a permanent wedge between the North and South Indians. Not only did they succeed in their attempts for a few centuries, but could also get a few ardent devotees among Indian historians. However, AIT met its natural death and stands deleted forever from Indian history.

Another set of self-proclaimed historians associated with the Genographic Project have now started trekking on the same path. Their attempt is to map the Journey of Civilisation in the same path as Journey of Mankind. Even without the Genographic Project we know that African continent is the cradle of mankind. The first man evolved from their ‘animal’ forefathers inAfrica and migrated to various parts of the world through various routes at different times. But the islands of civilisation are totally unconnected. India’s own Vedic Civilisation has nothing to do with anything that happened in Greece or Arabia or Europe, and stands unparalleled as one of the highest watermarks of human civilisation. Any pseudo-scientific attempts to belittle the same will meet the same fate as the Aryan Invasion Theory.

Comment I just found your blog while looking for information regarding how the Genographic Project encourages the idea that we are all related to one another more strongly than the national or cultural boundaries make us realize. However I am finding a stronger sentiment outside of the purely scientific interest in uncovering the migration data that echoes in Mr. Ajithkumar's piece here. Though he is warning of the side effects of the Genographic project it still feels that his central thesis is to head off any limitation to the prestige of the Vedic Civilization. As I am living in Japan, I am faced with listening to many Japanese versions of Mr. Ajithkumar who are on their guard against encroaching Chinese Ajithkumar thinkers regarding the ancient and prestigeous roots of Chinese civilization compared to what was offered by Japan.
