Recently I have been going through the Geological characteristic of Europe and its History.
The essence is.
1.Asia remained as reservoir of all races moving in to Europe.
2.For reasons not very known’ Humans started pushing towards Europe, this is presumed to be due to a cataclysmic event like flood or long dry periods.
3.Access to Europe was easy as the Russian plains were there to cross over effortlessly.
4.The complex structure of European geological features made these groups entering into Europe to become small groups settling n pockets.
The Basques settled in the North of Pyrenees, Celts in Wales,Ireland and north-west of Scotland,Lombard in Italy,
In the Fourth Century AD, out of Asia came the Huns,predecessor of Germans),Tatars.
Later came the Magyars, who are in Hungary,Bulgar in Bulgaria .
Then came the Turks.
All from Asia!
Unsettling fact is that these groups seem to have displaced the existing groups in these areas!
Who are they and where did they come from?
Though it is accepted fact that the migration started from Asia into Europe,there seems to be no evidence of Neanderthal type of man in India.
The reason could have been a cataclysm like great fire or Flood.
Europe did not witness such a cataclysm.
Hence the remains of such type of evidence has not been found as it might be deep down the water or incinerated, the remains might be charred and
need detailed investigation.
But, as I have been maintaining my posts, there is this obsession to follow the History(?) of Europe through European sources, when these sources quote Asian/Indian resources for their first migration !
The earliest Epic of Mankind, The Ramayana gives a clear description of the type of Species.
Valimki states that when Rama decided to attack Ravana He gave a call through Sugreeva.
The Vanaras came from all the places from Madhya Pradesh,South India, and from the place ‘where the Sun always shines or always sets”
The last one is Polar regions.
Valmiki also mentions that the Vanaras were dominant in South India, they were concentrated in Kishkinta, they had high foreheads and features (resembling the Vanaras), and they lived in caves.
One can find these warren of Caves in the remains of Hampi which was earlier Kishkinta.
Vanaras meansVan( forest) and Naras, man like beings in Forests.
In Mahabharata Lord Krishna says the Species to which Jambhavan belonged was near extinct( one must remember Jambhavan appears, along with Hanuman in both Ramayana and Mahabharata).
The description of Jambhavan in the Ramayana resembles the Yeti.
Some Indologists speak of these being s having lived in South India 5,00, 000 years ago!
Neanderthals could speak and reason out, though the later point is being disputed .
One needs to analyse the Kishkinda Kanda of Ramayana.
It seems to me that Hanuman and Vanaras belonged to the equivalent of what is known as Neanderthal in the west.
Indian Neanderthal ( why can’t we call the species as Vanaras) are the Vanaras and they populated the South India.
When one looks at the records of the ancient History of Tamils, one would find references to species like this and one should not forget Lemuria!
