The word Aryan is an archaic term for either the proto-Indo-European people who are believed to have originated in central Russia, or the proto-Indo-Iranian people who originated in southern Russia.

As part of the mass migration of people over many thousands of years, proto-Indo-European people migrated westward into much of Europe, taking their language with them. Not all these people migrated westward, and a proto-Indo-Iranian culture developed in the south of Russia, probably around 2500 BCE. A few centuries later, a group migrated south-east into India, taking both language and the early Hindu religion with them. A later group also migrated south, to the east of the Caspian Sea, into eastern Iran, also taking language and the Zoroastrian religion. A third group migrated south, around the western edge of the Caspian Sea into western Iran. This last group, which was to become the Medes and Persians, took an older religion with them but converted, centuries later, to Zoroastrianis ...more

Did not come from any where.Had that been issue,they would have been looking for their land of origin constantly.
No such reference is found from the records right from Alexender's invasion till muslim and chinese travellers and traders of various countries visiting thousands of years back.Buddha missionaries also did not carry any such thought to other countries at the time of Asoka.
Geographical conditions did not support any other version.
Multan seems to be their Mool-sthan.

The concept of an Aryan race became influential in the period of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries as linguists and ethnologists argued that speakers of these Indo-European languages constitute a distinctive race, spoken by an ancient people who must have been the original ancestors of the European, Iranian and Indo-Aryan peoples, now known as -Proto-Indo-Europeans-.

There is little archaeological evidence of the Aryans in the first phase of their migration in India. The ancestors of the Indian Aryans had remained for a long time on the borders of the subcontinent, which is now Afghanistan and Soviet Central Asia. Some time after the Aryan`s migration into India, another branch, the ancestors of the Medes and the Persians, left their homeland for what is now Iran and gave their name to that land (the name Iran comes from Airyanam vaejo, "Realm of the Aryans"). Another set of Aryans made their presence felt elsewhere in the Middle East. Their culture was not very advanced.

They were illiterate and did not live in cities. But they were technologically superior over their earlier inhabitants of the Indus valley, which is described, in great details in the Rig-Veda. They were also advanced in metallurgy. Their entry into India took place not as a concerted invasion but in successive waves over several centuries in the earlier half of the second mill ...more
