Aryan Origin

  1. I liked very much this synthesis. I may, however, if you don’t mind, point out to you an anachronism. For example you wrote : “In the Mahabharata, the terms Arya or Anarya are often applied to people according to their behaviour. Dushasana, who tried to disrobe Draupadi in the Kaurava court, is called an “Anarya” meaning not an Aryan or not a Hindu.” The word ‘Hindu’ did not exist in the Mahabharata. In fact, it is not a Vedic word and it was not used by ancient sages. By putting it the way you did, you are equating Aryan with Hindu, which is not proper. Not all Hindus are (or were) Aryans; far from it.
    My respects.
