Recently, there was a news about Migrants from India settled in Australia 4,000 years ago before Captain Cook’s arrival

There are new evidences arriving on surface everyday, proving eternity of Sanatana Dharma (Eternal civilization, centered in Bharat).

I would like to add two more examples here from old notes.

African roots of Sanskrit
African roots of Sanskrit

One friend asked me, how old our civilization is.

I replied: नित्य. It is eternal. There is no beginning and no end. Dharma based civilization resurfaces, time to time at different places of our Earth, based on locals urge to live perfect life (विजिगीषु वृति).

For example, there are striking similarities observed in archeological surveys across world with common denominator as ‘Bharatiya Samskruti’. The similarity in the word usages & customs of distant regions and of remote ages amuse researchers at peak. Affinity of language among people geographically and chronologically remote from each other is vital indicator of नित्य धर्म संस्कृति (Eternal Dharma based civilization).

Let us explore Bharat-African affinity.

Naming of places is done based on common sense, signifying local importance. For example, प्रयाग i.e. Place of sacrifice. In interior of Africa, you find many towns, hills having Sanskrit names but having no significant meaning in local African language. In all parts of world, original names of the places reasonably carry significant meaning but with lapse of time, name and meaning get corrupted. Here is the case when names carry Sanskrit legacy with meanings derived based on Sanskrit roots.

Here are some names:

On this class of names, observe common suffix i.e Konda. Etymologically konda means hill and such terminations are common in Bharat and are always associated with Hill or immediate vicinity of the hill. Some popular names in Bharat are: Golakonda fort, Gurramkonda, Ganeshcund,Kailkunda,Miconda. In fact, there is one language called Konda-Dora spoken in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, Assam and Orissa by about 28,000 people [1].

Tambakunda is is the largest city in eastern Senegal, 250 miles (400 km) southeast of Dakar, and is the Regional capital of the province of the same name. Its estimated population in 2007 was 78,800. [2]. We have Tambacherry, Tamaracherry, Tambah names in Bharat. Tamba means copper as per my knowledge.

Some more names from African land:

Bishna (Vishnu?)
Kirisnani (Krishna?)
Soomma (Soma?)
Comba (Kumbh?)
Samegona (Sami – Parvati, Gonda – Hill)
Siwah (Shiva?)
Reference: The Asiatic Journal Vol 4 pg 325-327, it is analysis of Mungo Park’s Travels in the Interior of Africa book [3].

Polynesia is a subregion of Oceania, made up of over 1,000 islands scattered over the central and southern Pacific Ocean. The indigenous people who inhabit the islands of Polynesia are termed Polynesians and they share many similar traits including language, culture and beliefs.Historically, they were experienced sailors and used stars to navigate during the night.

Late P. Mitra of Calcutta university’s research unravelled influence of Bharat on such a distant islands.


[1] Physical appearance of Polynesians resemble more to Indians than that of the people neighbouring islands.
[2] Language has closer affinity to the language of Indian tribes like the Mundas and the Santhals.
[3] Hula dance of Hawaai and Shiva dance of Samoa are similar to folk dances of Bengal
[4] According to subject matter experts, some of the staple foods and animals have roots in India.
[5] Polynesians believe in Cosmic Egg and World as branches of a tree having roots in this cosmic Egg as described in Bhagwad Gita
