The other point is that if Matsya is the beginning of Evcolution, then nothing else should have existed along with it. But we have Manu, a Human being existing when Matsya Avatar took place and it was the Matsya that advised Manu to meditate. Therefore the interpretaion of Dashavatara in terms of Darwinism is incorrect as Darwinism is not proved and interpretaion of Hindu theory of evolution as found in the Puranas is incorrect.
For the atmosphere in India has been so vitiated on the basis of langauge and territories that even a slight mention, raises one's hackles. The Divide and Rule Policy started by the British about 300 years ago still lingers , currently being fueled by the politicians who have no idea of our Past History and our traditions. Having written about the early histories of Tamil in detail and a couple of Posts on the antiquity of Kannada,I would like to tread carefully, though evidence is available on these subjects. When I take up the ancient history of the other areas, bengal, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Central India, there might me surprises in store.
As I wrote articles on the spread of Sanatana Dharma spread throughout India, I had a nagging doubt about the spread of it throughout the world form the eastern and western borders of India as the distance was too much and the evidence that the Rig Veda was composed in the Arctic, Baikal was Vaikanasa Theertha, Krishna's son built a city, Por Baijn, in Russia, Rig Vedic Mandal City, Siberians pray to the Ayur Deavatas of Hinduism.... There is a lot more... like Nazca Lines of Peru resembling the Trishul of Shiva, Sugreevas description of the world and Shiva's Travel throughout the world... Considering that most of the remains of Sanatana Dharma is found in Russia and that Manu ancestor of Lord Rama performed penance in the Mascarene Plateau near Madagascar, I wondered if here was any link between all these, especially in respect of Geology. Every one knows that the tectonic plates move and continents drift.
Note the Kumari Mountain , indicated by an arrow in the First Image, and it starts from what is the presently known as the Western Ghats and extends to Madagascar, where the Mascarene plateau lay in ancient times. Since Satyavrata Manu was meditating on t a higher plane because of the great flood, the Mascarene plateau fits. As He is reported to have meditated in Malayamarutha, I am of the opinion that the Malayamarutha lay somewhere in Mascarene plateau..
A part of Sanatana dharma was in place from the Arctic to the Pacific ocean running through Russia, Central India to Pacific. This consisted of South India, south asian Countries and extended to Pacific. Another part extended from the South of India towards the west of India running through Midddle east, Europe,Africa , Americas and culminating at the Arctic. There are some interesting differences between the two areas and I shall write on this later in detail I have taken references from Russian Legends, folklore ,history and the history of South India, as described in ancient Tamil literature and references in the Puranas ,Ramayana and Mahabharata.
