The Exterminated & Subjugated Races : Blacks (`Dasyus' &
`Sudras'), Semites (`Panis') and Mongoloids (`Nagas')
The Mongoloids are also mentioned by the Sanskrit poets. In Sanskrit they are
referred to as Yakshas, in Pali as Yakkos & in Chinese as Yueh-Chih [ 1800,p.45
]. These yellow races descended from the Himalayas and occupied much of the
Ganges valley. Being natives of higher regions they considerd themselves to be
superior to the inhabitants of the plains, and assumed the name of daivaputra of
the sons of gods' [ 1800,p.45 ]. They spread over the whole of Bengal, and
emigrated thence by sea to southern Indian and Ceylon.
I should have added a passage from the OLB:
Punjab, that is five rivers, and by which we travel, is a river of extraordinary beauty, and is called Five Rivers, because four other streams flow into the sea by its mouth. Far away to the eastward is another large river, the Holy or Sacred Ganges. Between these two rivers is the land of the Hindoos. Both rivers run from the high mountains to the plains. The mountains in which their sources lie are so high that they reach the heavens and therefore these mountains are called Himellaia. Among the Hindoos and others out of these countries there are people who meet together secretly. They believe that they are pure children of Finda, and that Finda was born in the Himellaia mountains, whence she went with her children to the lowlands. Some of them believe that she, with her children, floated down upon the foam of the Ganges, and that that is the reason why the river is called the Sacred Ganges.
(...) and that that is the reason why the river is called the Sacred Ganges. But the priests, who came from another country, traced out these people and had them burnt, so that they do not dare to declare openly their creed. In this country all the priests are fat and rich. In their churches there are all kinds of monstrous images, many of them of gold.
Remnants of civilization in the greater Bengal region date back four thousand years, when the region was settled by Dravidian, Tibeto-Burman, and Austro-Asiatic peoples. The exact origin of the word "Bangla" or "Bengal" is not known, though it is believed to be derived from Bang, the Dravidian-speaking tribe that settled in the area around the year 1000 BCE.
Medieval European geographers located paradise at the mouth of the Ganges and although this was overhopeful, Bengal was probably the wealthiest part of the subcontinent until the 16th century. The area's early history featured a succession of Hindu empires, internal squabbling, and a tussle between Hinduism and Buddhism for dominance.
So, would that mean that these Tibeto-Burman and Austro-Asiatic peoples were the OLB Finda?
And that the priests "who came from another country" were the Dravidians?
And.....was the mouth of the Ganges (or an area nearby) the OLB Aldland?
