All Indian languages, whether Sanskritic or Dravidian, are descendants of the same ancestral language

Despite the divergent trails of genetic markers, Aryans and Dravidians may not be that far removed from each other. Linguists have for long been agreed that “English, Dutch, German, and Russian are each branches of the vast Indo-European language family, which includes Germanic, Slavic, Celtic, Baltic, Indo-Iranian and other languages, all descendants of more ancient languages like Greek, Latin and Sanskrit.

Digging down another level, linguists have reconstructed an earlier language from which the latter were derived. They call it proto-Indo-European, or PIE for short.” Dr Alexis Manaster Ramer of Wayne State University, US digs even deeper and finds common roots between PIE and two other language groups: Uralic, which includes Finnish, Estonian and Hungarian; and Altaic that includes Turkish and Mongolian. All these three groups, Dr Ramer argues, find their roots in an older language called Nostratic. If he is right then all Indian languages, Sanskritic or Dravidian are descended from Nostratic, spoken about 12,000 years ago.

Dr Vitaly Shevoroshkin at the Institute of Linguistics at Moscow, and another Russian scholar, Dr Aaron Dogopolsky now at the University of Haifa, did pioneering work in establishing the Nostratic language in the 1960s, and this today is the inspiration to younger linguists like Ramer. Incidentally, the word “Nostratic” means “our language”. This study of language is really the study of the evolution of the human race after the advent of the anatomically modern human being, 1,20,000 years ago.

Hey Kayar,
Which is more authentic - Tamil Tribune, Hindian Sociology or Aurangajeb Lingology?

Who are we?
The question “who are we?” has intrigued historians, linguists and geneticists as much as it has the common Indian.

That's not the only silliness ("who are we and from where we came to India, implying outside?") among these half-brained Indians (including historians and others). Don't they also stupidly think that "sati" (self-immolation by a woman upon her husband's death) is a Hindu custom, while they regularly see and live daily with countless live widows in their Hindu families, relations, neighborhoods and the country; that India really is a secular country, even though there are several religion based discriminatory laws in use in India officially; and that the name "Hindu" originated for people in India when foreigners long ago could not pronounce the name of a river ("Sindhu") properly (calling it instead "Hindu"), even though there is no likelihood of that ever happening (foreigners mispronouncing "Sindhu" as "Hindu" deliberately or by mistake).
