One of the most contentious topics in prehistory today is to address who the Indians are. Colonial studies using linguistics proposed that Central Asians invaded or migrated to India during 1500 BCE, effectively replacing the existing civilization. While this received wisdom continues to dominate history textbooks in USA and the world, it is rejected by a vast section of Indians who believe otherwise. Today multi-disciplinary science from diverse areas such as genetics, archaeology, climatology, geology, astronomy are revealing the truth about the Indian civilization. The speaker will take the audience on a vast journey over time, harnessing published scientific results to bear upon the antiquity of the Indian civilization.

Whereas Western narratives favor the origin of astronomy and math (among other fields) as having originated outside India and imported into India during various invasions, Raj Vedam’s multi-disciplinary studies reveal otherwise. His research proposes an ancient Indian civilization that made advances in several fields of knowledge.
