The Homo Neanderthalis and the Dravidians: A Common Origin and Relation to Harappan Civilisation and Vedas

Ravikumar A. Kurup, Parameswara Achutha Kurup


INTRODUCTION: The postulated Lemurian part of the Indian sub-continent in South India is inhabited by the dominant Nair community. The dominant Nair community also has a high incidence of autism. Neanderthal anthropometric features have been described in autism. Neanderthal metabolonomics have also been described in autism. It is possible that homo neanderthalis would have originated in the super continent which occupied the southern ocean. The island of Sumatra is home to another human species homo floresiensis which lived along with homo neanderthalis. This suggests an oceanic origin of homo neanderthalis in the supercontinent in the southern ocean. Recurrent Tsunamis would have forced the migration of homo neanderthalis to the Eurasian land mass especially to Harappa, Sumeria, Etruscia, Egypt and Basque country. There is a high incidence of Neanderthal genes in the Basque population. The language spoken in Harappa, Sumeria, Etruscia, Egypt and Basque country had a Dravidian sub-stratum. The population in these areas are matrilineal and female dominant.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Neanderthal anthropometric features were evaluated in the Nair community and in autism. The parameters checked include dolichocephalic skull, prominent supraorbital ridge and mid face large flat nose and ring finger index finger ratios.
RESULTS: The Nair community had a high prevalence of Neanderthal anthropometric features. Neanderthal anthropometric features were also dominant in autism.
CONCLUSION: This suggests an out of oceania hypothesis for the origin of homo neanderthalis.
