The Hindu Press International article entitled, 'India's Seminar on Scientific Dating of Events Before 2000 BCE: Special Report' is reproduced below because these findings are in tune with the new Indo-Centric Cosmology as found in the writings of Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet. Ms. Norelli-Bachelet helps put such discoveries in the context of the true knowledge of the Vedic Age. The findings in the article lend support to the fact that the Capricorn Hieroglyph superimposed on the map of Akhand Bharat is indeed pre-historic and was first seen by the Rishis in ages gone by. The new series to follow, India, the Vast, the True, the Right, will build on this understanding, whereby it can be seen as the means to integrate societies on the subcontinent. We are please to begin this new series on August 15th, 2011 -- the 139th birthday of Sri Aurobindo, and coincidentally the 64th anniversary of Indian independence.

NEW DELHI, INDIA, August 5th, 2011 (HPI report - By Rajiv Malik, Chief Correspondent, India/South Asia):
"The anthropological research reports have established that DNA dating for Paleolithic continuity starts from 60,000 BC. The Genome studies during the Holocene have revealed that the genetic profile of humans settled in north, south, east and west of India is the same and has remained the same for the last more than 11,000 years. Therefore, contrary to the popular belief, the Dravidians as well as north Indians have common ancestors and both are originals of India." This interesting revelation was made by Dr. V.R. Rao, Professor of Anthropology, Delhi University while presenting his paper at the national seminar on"Scientific Dating Of Ancient Events Before 2000 BC"
The "Seminar on Scientific Dating of Events Before 2000 BCE" was held on 30th and 31st July, 2011 at the auditorium of Indian Institute of Mass Communication in New Delhi. The seminar was attended by about 400 people including Sanskrit scholars and astronomers, archaeologists and geologists, ecologists and anthropologists, oceanographers and space scientists, bureaucrats and academicians as well as other persons from the public and media, who took deep interest in the deliberations of this otherwise highly technical event organized by the Delhi chapter of I-SERVE [ Institute of Scientific Research on Vedas].
The two main objectives of the seminar were:
One, to highlight the fact that some new scientific inventions and tools can scientifically determine the authenticity and historicity of ancient events and as such any reliance on religious beliefs or linguistic guesswork is superflous. Such scientific dating is not only credible and convincing but is also likely to push back the antiquity of our civilisation by 4-5 millenia, giving all Indians a shared pride in our rich cultural heritage.
The second objective was to integrate the authenticated information contained in latest research reports of our eminent scientists, available with the Ministries of Science and Technology and of Earth Sciences, with the contents of our school and college books to enable the young minds to appreciate our true history, reconstructed purely on scientific basis.
Former President of India, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam delivered the inaugural address on 30th July. He endorsed the scientific methods of dating ancient events and emphasised that a mechanism needs to be built to disseminate the knowledge and information generated during the seminar with school and college children to generate a shared pride in our rich and ancient most heritage.
The highlight of the event was the release of the Seminar Memento, a wall clock depicting the sky view on 10th January, 5114 BC, date of birth of Lord Ram based on planetary configuration given in Valmiki Ramayan. The memento was released by Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.
Presenting the theme of the national seminar, Ms Saroj Bala, Director, I-Serve, Delhi Chapter stated, "Till now we have been told that prior to 1500 BC, India was uncivilized and that the Aryans who came from Central Asia pushed the uncivilized inhabitants towards the south and were later known as Dravidians. These invaders were the ones who set up the first civilized society in North India. Multidisciplinary and purely scientific research has shown that this premise, which was based on linguistic guesswork, is not correct."
According to Ms Saroj Bala the key findings of the seminar have the potential of uniting all Indians and raising their self esteem by giving them shared pride in their ancient most rich cultural heritage. To enlighten them based on scientific evidences, that indigenous civilization have been developing and flourishing in India for last 10,000 years and that some of our ancestors moved out to civilise others.
