Breaking the Thin Line

It was a time when the strongest and dangerous were ruling the world, the incompetent human animal appeared on the life threatening world of animals, even a day to day survival was challenging in the naked world. In time, the skills were mastered for the survival. It was one prominent skill, which made the human animal to become a dominant species on earth. The skill of Questioning. When he asked why the burnt animals in the forest fire tastes better; he found the use of fire. When he asked how to make life simpler; he invented tools. When he asked how to make the transportation easier; he invented wheels. It was the skill of questioning which changed a barbarian to a modern human.

There is a thin line between the history and prehistory, and yes of course it depends on how far you are from that thin line. At very very closer look, they are just dots with huge gaps between. The history of India can be defined from 2500 B.C. The period before the recorded history is called the prehistory. The prehistory of Indian sub continent dates from time when the sub-humans stepped-in roughly around 75,000 years ago.

In the evolution of human race there was a sudden and unaccountable emergence happened between 40,000 to 10,000 years ago. We did not reach our current stage by complete natural evolution, we do have a missing link in human evolution, and we do have some artificial touch with in us.

One after the other two major civilizations formed in prehistoric India, the time when the genetic science was mastered and applied on prehistoric humans. It is not an exaggeration, it is a forgotten truth. One way of proving this is by finding archeological proofs or evidence. But India is a country where continuous civilizations were forming and it did not leave sufficient archeological remnants of its ancestors. The cities were rebuilt again and again, they destroyed the remains of the past. But the continuous civilization itself is an evidence. The history of the past was passed down through oral communication from one generation to another.

The ancient civilizations formed and flourished along the river sides, They obtained its peak when the climate was stable for a long time. But unfortunately they came to a sudden end, when the rivers dried because of long drought. The knowledge and expertise gained by the civilizations were lost. The generations formed long after were even unable to understand the technology of the earlier civilizations. The oral history of the ancient civilizations were passed on as it was understood by the generation of that time. At one stage those historic stories were written as they were received at that time. Using those ancient writings we can trace back our prehistory and know our history of evolution and we can break the thin line between history and the prehistory. But the lack of trust and badly transformed and contradicting ancient texts makes them go unnoticed. Decoding those corrupted texts will explain us whether the modern humans are the genetic makeup of ancient astronauts or we sculptured us our self.
