Yankee Hindutva Strikes
Vijaya Rajiva notes: 
This piece ' Yankee Hindutv Strikes' (May 23, 2001, Outlookindia) is not really a review but a trashy polemic against Breaking India and it is by someone called Gita Ramaswamy, possibly one of the new journalists hired by
Outlookindia. One wonders what her qualifications are to review this book.

It is full of errors and makes no attempt to outline the main arguments of the book...
 ...I had sent my article/review 'Breaking India: Some Reflections' to Outlookindia, but it was politely rejected, even though I had sent in my academic credentials etc...

This thread is continued here.

Scientists Collide with Linguists to Assert Indigenous origin of Indian Civilization
Comprehensive population genetics data along with archeological and astronomical evidence presented at June 23-25, 2006 conference in Dartmouth, MA, overwhelmingly concluded that Indian civilization and its human population is indigenous.
In fact, the original people and culture within the Indian Subcontinent may even be a likely pool for the genetic, linguistic, and cultural origin of the most rest of the world, particularly Europe and Asia.
Leading evidences come from population genetics, which were presented by two leading researchers in the field, Dr. V. K. Kashyap, National Institute of Biologicals, India, and Dr. Peter Underhill of Stanford University in California. Their results generally contradict the notion Aryan invasion/migration theory for the origin of Indian civilization.
