Earliest Indians Sanatana Dharma Tamils From Same Village? Lemuria DNA Evidence-Report Nature


I have been attempting ,for the past nine years through this blog, gems of Indian thoughts validation of Sanatana Dharma, Hinduism , Antiquity of Sanskrit,Tamil and the unity of Tamil and Sanatana Dharma.

And the presence of Sanatana Dharma through out the world.

I am basing my articles on Archeology, Astronomy, Architecture,Astro-Archeology, Etymology,Cultural similarities,Tribes, Geology, Plate tectonics, Epigraphy,Starta analysis, infra-red dating,world literature and legends.

Also DNA studies.

Contrary to what was found earlier,the first human migration was from Asia, specifically from South of Vindhya Mountains.

The earliest DNA has been traced to Madurai,Tamil Nadu,India.

There is more.

One finds there is variety and yet at the same time a unity among the people of India.

Nowhere in the world would you find a similar if not identical way of social behaviour among the people of this vast country,India,be it how they eat,the practices from birth to death, entertaining guests…

Apparently diverse,there remains a Unity.

North Indians,that is those residing to the North of Vindhya Mountains are fairer,more outgoing

Those in the South are brown,dark brown,black.

But values systems remain identical.

One difference on the Religious front is that the worship of Shiva is more pronounced in the South.

And the facts concerning Him.

And southerners did not worship fire as found in Vedas.

The researchers showed that most Indian populations are genetic admixtures of two ancient, genetically divergent groups, which each contributed around 40-60% of the DNA to most present-day populations. One ancestral lineage — which is genetically similar to Middle Eastern, Central Asian and European populations — was higher in upper-caste individuals and speakers of Indo-European languages such as Hindi, the researchers found. The other lineage was not close to any group outside the subcontinent, and was most common in people indigenous to the Andaman Islands, a remote archipelago in the Bay of Bengal.

The researchers also found that Indian populations were much more highly subdivided than European populations. But whereas European ancestry is mostly carved up by geography, Indian segregation was driven largely by caste. “There are populations that have lived in the same town and same village for thousands of years without exchanging genes,” says Reich.

Yet all other Deities,Devi,Vishnu,Varuna,Indra and Subrahmanya as Murugan is found in the most ancient available Tamil text, Tholkappiyam.

Why this Anamoly?

Are these people different?

Or are they from the same stock?

The answer lies in DNA.

I am posting excerpts from a study published in Nature,which states that the two apparently different people are from the same village,.

And it is a mixture of two groups.

One resembling Mediterranean and the other from the landmass near Andaman Islands,India.

One group could be the Vedic and another Lemuria.

One has to keep in mind that Himalayas were formed much later to Lemuria,which is about 230 million years old.

“All Indians are pretty similar,” says Chris Tyler-Smith, a genome researcher at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute near Cambridge, UK, who was not involved in the study. “The population subdivision has not had a dominating effect.”

India makes up around one-sixth of the world’s population, yet the South Asian country has been sorely under-represented in genome-wide studies of human genetic variation. The International HapMap Project, for example, includes populations with African, East Asian and European ancestry — but no Indians. The closest the Human Genome Diversity Cell Line Panel of 51 global populations comes is Pakistan, India’s western neighbour. The Indian Genome Variation database was launched in 2003 to fill the gap, but so far the project has studied only 420 DNA-letter differences, called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), in 75 genes1.

Caste divisions

Now, a team led by David Reich of the Broad Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Lalji Singh of the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology in Hyderabad, India, has probed more than 560,000 SNPs across the genomes of 132 Indian individuals from 25 diverse ethnic and tribal groups dotted all over India.

The researchers showed that most Indian populations are genetic admixtures of two ancient, genetically divergent groups, which each contributed around 40-60% of the DNA to most present-day populations. One ancestral lineage — which is genetically similar to Middle Eastern, Central Asian and European populations — was higher in upper-caste individuals and speakers of Indo-European languages such as Hindi, the researchers found.
