Re: Out-of-India - From Theory to Truth: Part 2

At 12:30, Dr Chaubey says that David Riech does not sequence the whole genome but only parts of it. If a mutation is missed, then the whole Y-DNA gets messed up and that's why they have placed Indian branch of R1a under Europes.

Re: Out-of-India - From Theory to Truth: Part 2

In the Rakhigarhi aDNA paper, they examined a 4000 BCE skeleton and said that Indian and Iranians separated before 8000 BCE.
Why couldn't they have concluded the same thing by examining modern Indians and Iranians?

Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry

India made steady progress from above 150 three years ago to around 100 for the past several months, but it is unable to go up from there.

India should host the foot ball world cup instead of even trying for the olympics. Way more profitable.
