Primitive men came into existence in India , mesmerised by prosperous and varied heritage many foreign tribes came to India. Modern research says there were many tribes who came and settled in India. Among them were the Negritoit (The Habsi people), Nishad people, Dravidians, Aryans and many more.

“The original tribe who started this Indus valley civilization are believed to be the Dravidians, followed by the Aryans who invaded later”.

The Dravidians:

The direct decendents of stone age civilization and originally belonged to India were the Dravidians. They gave the concept of God and Goddess (Mother as ‘Goddess’ and Father as ‘God’). The traditions of worshiping with ‘Dhup’(incense stick), ‘Deep’(lamp) and ‘Aarti’ are the gifts of Dravidians. They were very skilled and highly peace loving people having matriarchal system of family. They progressed in different crafts and arts like building of boat or raft, weaving, dyeing, etc. Today we can see there decendents speaking tamil, Malayalam, telgu, etc in India.

The Aryans were the creators of Aryan civilization, Hindus were called Aryans in ancient time. First Aryan population was gathered in the North-west. They were nature lovers and worshiped trees , rivers, mountains, Sun, wind and Rain. They started some religious ceremonies like recitation of Vedas, performing Yagya and other activites which later became prevalent in India. As they came to India with great bunch of knowledge and power, The Dravidians were forced to go down and settle in the south part of India.
