It is a matter of great dismay that the 'Indigenous History of India' is not yet compactly written by any unbiased author. Indian history is shrouded with the 'projection' of the history of the Northern parts, rather than the history of the whole of India. When scholars discuss the matters of Culture or Civilization, they give all details of the Socio-Cultural aspects of the northern regions of India, even before 1500 BC, and it is normally seen that the regions, south of the Vindhyas, are totally rejected. But, right in the middle of the discussion, we observe that they narrate all the glories of a civilization akin to South India, without mentioning its name. In short, the scholars are inclined to take all the meritorious aspects of the South-Indian culture, put it in the pocket of the North-Indian treasure-bag and project it through a multi-faceted lens to the world of Aryan culture, whereas a basic analysis of Indian history reveals that the very roots of Indian history, including the North, rests strongly bound to the South India. Even some of the Western scholars too are seen victims to the Aryan thought process. The root cause for this unfortunate happening is analyzed to be the Arya-Dravida issue still prevailing in India. Any historian could easily find out that the present face value of culture existing in South India is the photo-copy of the same Civilization which was existing in India even some 30,000 years ago or earlier. This continuity of civilization, the scholar would never find in any other parts of the globe. It simply continues. There are people still living here with comparatively 'less change' in them, in their character, nobility, attitude, system of living, nature of hospitality, their art, culture, knowledge, literary proficiency, and also the mind to keep up the system of law with a sense for justice. These aspects have been proved even by the analysis of their genetic features. Those are the type of the people presently concentrated in the Southern parts of India, but spread all over India, known by the name NADARS.
The first historian of the world, Herodotus, mentions about them; the modern 'Genetic Analysis' declares their antiquity; various Temple Depictions(Madurai meenakshi, Kanarak, Java) declare their history; The etymological, archaeological, Ithihasic, Puranic and the Literary analysis, properly done, connect the NADARS from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. The only 'Caution' that we have to take is not to become prey to the 'Conventional' understanding and analysis of history, but take a 'Critical' approach with the help of all the available data of literary, archaeological, linguistic and the modern Genetic analysis, all put together to make an independent opinion of a new and Basic true history of India. This is what the History of Nadars is. It may look strange and 'Novel' to some of the viewers. For example: the modern world and the present literature look down about the culture of the 'Toddy Tappers' of India, who are termed in Sanskrit as Tvashtri or Vrishnis, whereas the earliest Inscription found in India (6th century BC) is that of a 'Toddy Tapper' in the old Tamil script, written on an earthen 'Kalassa' as 'Naackan Uurra' . A good comparative analysis proves that this 'Once Great Palmyrah Culture' can be seen depicted in our Jaina and the later Hindu Temples. This is proved by the statement of Herodotus that they were great Sailors, Warriors and Continental Tradesmen. This 'Root Culture' of Martial and Literary Civilization can be still found in the NADARS of the World who are also known as Santors, meaning, Noble people.
