see, the 'aryans' were *really* clever. in 1500 bce, they sent their
tourists not only to the indus-sarasvati valley, but a few of them went
much further to southern india. they were exploring the opportunities
for their services in the teaching of sanskrit and for marrying the
local women. in other words, scoping out the place and checking out the
women: the usual things tourists do. not bad for them, hitting both ends
of this vast country simultaneously. in comparison, it took white people
roughly 100 years to penetrate all the way from the us east coast to the
us west coast. but them 'aryans', i tell you, pretty darn clever of
them, simultaneously coming to north and south india.
i see this as compelling proof of the aryan tourist theory. tourists are
adventurous and, armed with their visas, go to many places. with the
help of herr dr. prof. steve farmer, i shall prove shortly that the
symbols on the ax are a visa for the tourist 'aryans': not a real
language, just a mini-language for visas.

Ancient Ax Links North, South Indian Cultures
*Monday , May 01, 2006, Fox News*
NEW DELHI — A 3,500-year-old stone ax engraved with an ancient northern
Indian script found in the country's south could establish a closer
historical link between the distinctive regions, an archaeologist said
The ax was found by a schoolteacher, V. Shanmuganathan, in a mangrove
forest in a village in the southern *Tamil Nadu*
Sridhar, commissioner of the state's archaeology department.
The polished hand-held stone ax has four seals on it that are written in
a script used around 1,500 B.C. in the *Indus Valley*
The Associated Press in a telephone interview from Madras, the capital
of Tamil Nadu state.
Such seals are most commonly associated with the ancient cultures of
modern-day Pakistan, thousands of miles to the north of Tamil Nadu.
The presence of the script on the ax is a strong indication that the
Neolithic Aryan people of northern India penetrated much father south
than previously believed.
"It shows that there has been a link between south of India and the rest
of the country," Sridhar said.
The find is "the greatest archaeological discovery (in) a century in
Tamil Nadu state," said Iravatham Mahadevan, an expert on the Indus
script who is not connected with the find.
He was quoted in The Hindu newspaper.
