Tamil Brahmin Possible origin


New member
The average South Indian body structure..features..height..body muscle mass ratio etc doesnt differ much from community to community.

South Asians(South Indians included) over all have much less muscle mass and have higher body fat ratio and a higher risk for metabolic syndrome which is NOT the case for an races from Europe.

I saw a video of a very middle eastern Europeanish looking Pakistani who did his DNA and his DNA showed South Asian ONLY. No European heritage or middle eastern heritage.

Then there was another video of an very European looking arab whose DNA did show some European ancestory and also Indian ancestory which he never knew about.
Another Arab had African genes too.

Anyway the point here is....how did Brahmins acquire south indian looks ?
The fact is a TB looks very south indian and does not look european at all.
Some North Indian Brahmins at times do look a bit Europeanish or more middle eastern but this is rarely seen in a South Indian Brahmin especially from Tamil Nadu.

Being fair skinned doesn't give one European looks...Chinese/Japanese/Koreans are also very light skinned but do not look European at all.

I dont buy the migration story but I feel there surely was other DNA's that came along into India from races that came and conquered..or stayed.

Men usually took local wives/partners or chinna veedus or part time lovers and the children spoke their mothers language.

If we observe an offspring of a South Indian and a Caucasian mostly they end up looking like very good looking Northern Indians.
But if a North Indian and a Caucasian mix off spring tends to look more Caucasian.

So this gives a rough idea that some parts of India could have had some other races DNA.

Since Tamil Brahmins look very south indian may be thats how they really looked like and their genes didnt get exposed to invador or Greek genes hence retained their original Indian look.
Why cant
And none of the Indians have any white features - hairs, eyes, skin colour, etc..

No offence to anyone. On the other hand, North Indians Hindus and Muslims look the same, same features, same language - Hindi and Urdu are same except script, same customs - Holi is the same as Eid e Gulabi, food is same - roti, sabji, etc..

So how lah ??? Same discredited theory is circulated every now and then..
It is quite possible a part of land separaTed from other continents and joined China . German language is very similar to sanskrit.

Venky Ji,
Sanskrit and Dravidian have more commonality and similarity than other languages.

Sanskrit as a language competed with numerous, less exact vernacular Indian languages called Prakritic languages (prākṛta-). The term prakrta literally means "original, natural, normal, artless", states Franklin Southworth.[43] The relationship between Prakrit and Sanskrit is found in Indian texts dated to the 1st millennium CE. Patañjali acknowledged that Prakrit is the first language, one instinctively adopted by every child with all its imperfections and later leads to the problems of interpretation and misunderstanding. The purifying structure of the Sanskrit language removes these imperfections. The early Sanskrit grammarian Daṇḍin states, for example, that much in the Prakrit languages is etymologically rooted in Sanskrit, but involve "loss of sounds" and corruptions that result from a "disregard of the grammar". Daṇḍin acknowledged that there are words and confusing structures in Prakrit that thrive independent of Sanskrit. This view is found in the writing of Bharata Muni, the author of the ancient Nāṭyaśāstra text. The early Jain scholar Namisādhu acknowledged the difference, but disagreed that the Prakrit language was a corruption of Sanskrit. Namisādhu stated that the Prakrit language was the pūrvam (came before, origin) and that it came naturally to women and children, while Sanskrit was a refinement of Prakrit through "purification by grammar".[44]

And these observations are from our ancient scholars, Rishis and grammarians ! And very comprehensive right on the local origins and inter linkage of Sanskrit and Prakrit.

Our ancients documented everything, and if Sanskrit came from foreigners they would have written about it. Like they mentioned how Greeks (yavanas) came to india and traded with different kingdoms.
