What do they mean by lactose intolerance? When they say lactose intolerance is 66.6%, do they mean 66.6% cannot have milk. Surely, there are more than 44% of people in those cities that have been drinking milk.

According to this paper, the steppe genes that are supposed to come to India after 1500 BC, were they direct from steppe or via Iran? If they are not from Iran, then how will it affect the neatly crafted IE language tree of Indo-Iranian language giving rise to Indic and Iranian languages?

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

The new 'findings' fit AIT to a 'T'. To me that's suspicious.
1. Timelines of steppe people into India - check
2. South Indians are IVC people - check
3. South Indian (Dravidian) languages are from IVC
And of course
4. Aryan people from steppe brought Samskrit to India.

Based on my discussions with people in the 'Tejas community' it seems increasingly likely that MK-1A production may begin with the 21st HAL series production unit itself.


What about testing? Will it be done by the time first 20 are delivered?
