Nobody in India is a "pure" race. As far as Dravidians go- you can find more "original" Dravidians in Tasmania than in Tamil Nadu. And as far as Aryans go- they came here from Europe & Central Asia and also Iran, and mixed w/ the local population.

India is a constantly evolving melting pot of races, beliefs, ethnicities and nationalities, which is what makes us 1000% zindabad. But most "native" races of Indian subcontinent like Missping, Aboriginal Dravidians etc., are extinct.

A Great Reception:
Those interpretations are known as Advaita Concept and Adi Sankaras advaita concept justifies the Aryan political law. Hence this concept which degrades the Indians or Dravidians had a great reception amongst the Aryan rulers. Hence Adi Sankara established 4 mutts in all the four corners of India viz. in west (Gujarat-Dwaraka), in east (Orissa-Puri), in North (Uttarpradesh-Joshi) and in south (Karnataka-Sringeri), and till date they involve in all kinds of conspiracies in enslaving the Indian Dravidians and Hindu religion to the Aryan political law.
Later on a Sankara Mutt was also established in Kanchi and they are all involved in conspiracies against the Indians or the Dravidians and ...more
