EARTH, GONDWANA-LAND AND DRAVIR’A RACE
(Marga Gurudeva Shrii Shrii Anandamurti, in one of HIS evening sittings under the Bilva tree talked about the above topic. HE also made reference to the age of the Earth, the huge animals of that time, the age of Palamu hills (this is the present name) which is to the South of Ananda Nagar and many other awesome point produced hereunder. The conversation got started when one of us asked him the meaning of the “Austrico-Negroid blending” which HE had just said while telling about the santhla and Munde tribes. These two tribes are Austrico-tribes – Editor, PANORAMA (weekly newspaper of PROUTIST universal Madras diocese) Dec & Jan 1983-84.
The Earth was a ball of fire some 800 crore years ago. Almost 230 crore years ago it came to the stage of having portions of land. Man was evolved as later as 10 lakh years from today.
Then much time passed before man started becoming civilized. Man’s Journey on the path of civilization started only 10 thousand years ago.
This we can infer from the fact that man at this stage had started evolving a language. The older part of the Vedas belong to this period – this we can say by noticing the similarity between the language used in the oldest part of the Vedas and the languages of the people living in the age of 10 thousand years from today. Vaedic civilization is the oldest civilization in the world – some 10 thousand years old.
The hills of Ananda Nagar are now atleast 60 crores in age.
That time there was no Himalaya.
In the ancient Gondwanaland of which Rarh was a part had no North Indian portion of today. There was no Arabian Sea, no Bay of Bengal and none of the islands. It was all a continuous land and the present Africa was a part of it.
In India there was the Austrico race. The negroid race came from the other regions (it was all a continuous land). The Austrico Negroid blending took place in the region which today we call South India. The blended Austrico-Negroid race was given the name “Dravidian Race”.
Then atleast 8 thousand years from today there occurred an earth quake of terrible nature and the land in the portions where now are Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea went down to form the sea. In the same earthquake the present North India came up. Those parts which previously were hills(In the region of the present sea) became islands in the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea after the earth-quake.
