Vishnu idol found in Russia - is Lokmanya Tilak right about the origin of Aryans?

Here's an incredible story written about by credible sources.


" An ancient Vishnu idol has been found during excavation in an old village in Russia's Volga region, raising questions about the prevalent view on the origin of ancient Russia. The idol found in Staraya (old) Maina village dates back to VII-X century AD. Staraya Maina village in Ulyanovsk region was a highly populated city 1700 years ago, much older than Kiev, so far believed to be the mother of all Russian cities."


This reminds me of Lokmanya Tilak's thesis that the Aryans originally came to India from the Arctic Circle, in his book 'The Artic home in the Vedas'. The idea is said to have struck Tilak while reciting the shloka from the Rig Veda, a copy of which was gifted to him by Max Mueller, a celebrated Indophile and Scholar. While reading the Rig Veda, Tilak was struck by the statement `Suryodayat prak bahuni ahani asan' meaning `many days have passed before the sunrise'. This phenomenon occurs only in the Polar region and the logical conclusion therefore was that the original home of the Aryans was in the area of North Pole.

This is fascinating. I wonder where Lokmanya Tilak got the basis of this hypothesis.

fascinating indeed. tilak got his ideas from shlokas in our vedas which described long periods of sunshine andd darkness, similar to those in the Arctic regions. Remember the swastika? A symbol common between Germany and India?

Nonsense. The idol is dated by the scietist himself to 7th-10th century AD. Moreover, the location of the find, Ulyanovsk is nowhere near the poles. BTW, Bal Gangadhars theory of an Artic orgin of the Vedas has been debunked by Sri Aurobindo himself in The Secret of the Vedas.
