>The word Yadava does not have known Indo European etymology. According to Franklin Southworth, it might be of Dravidian origin, meaning "herder". Yadu means goat or sheep in Tamil and Yaduvan means goat/sheep-herd. Source:The Indo-Aryans of Ancient South Asia: Language, Material Culture and Ethnicity by George Erdosy and Walter de Gruyter. Page 266.
The word “Yadav” is Dravidian. That doesn’t mean Ahirs who use the Yadav surname are dravdian. Ahirs started using that surname to larp as descendants of Krishna and the Yaduvanshis.
Nepali anon, caste is still a big factor in Indian politics. Everything is decided based on caste.
>>235202 Franklin Southworth also explicitly states that Yadava is the original word and mythical Yadu is derived from Yadava by back-formation. Also the original Yadavas used to practice cross cousin marriages like dravidians. https://books.google.co.in/books?id=OZ0gAAAAQBAJ&pg=PA266&dq=franklin+southworth+yadava&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjk7snP4K_wAhXH4nMBHTmYCDEQ6AEwAnoECAMQAw#v=onepage&q=franklin%20southworth%20yadava&f=false
>>235204 >Also the original Yadavas used to practice cross cousin marriages like dravidians. So? Middle easterners do that too, so dravidians are Arabs now?
>>235205 >Middle Easterners do that too Middle easterners aren’t the neighbouring population with a shared history or traditions with Dravidians. Tamil velir castes have a tradition of having migrated with Sage Agastya from Dwarka. They are the ones who brought Tamil language and developed its grammar.
>>235206 >Middle easterners aren’t the neighbouring population with a shared history or traditions with Dravidians. Oh wait actually they do. This means dravidian language and customs indeed came from elam.
>>235196 nanadalal was ahir krishna was from vrishni vansha as far as i know, there were 16 branches of yadavas, vrishni was one of them. or perhaps there were 16 branches of chandra vansha of which vrishni and ahir were part of. that being said, both of these clans were from same origin >>235197 so much coming from you,who are the worst of poojet and chink go back to making momos , the shipment has to reach delhi by tmrw >>235202 oh yeah,i almost forgot that,shit memory, ahirs are basically brothers of yadavas >>235206 just asking, where does the ssage live now, mandrachal is waiting, so he must be in lundia or any southern region. do we have clue?
Fuck off yaduvansha was a sister vansha of Kurus , fucking blindly believing literally who bigger tier cumskin Audrey trushkie tier larper, now white man decides who is Aryan and who is not ????? Krishna was dravidians hmmm??? But how could they be kshatriya then ??? Nigger rope yourself Mmhhuhhh cumskin massa said yadav are abbo subhuman muhhhh cumskin massa is always correct, lodu Singh chamar har nali ka keeda indologist banjara hai pigskin land me har kisi ke jutte mat chato >If a historyless whitoid is making claims about gotras and you believe it first shoot yourself and then the whitoid massa of yours
>>235448 >>235451 >>235256 Literally no proof that Ahir subhumans are related to the Yaduvanshis. Not a single historian takes their claims seriously. Ahir subhumans were always considered shudroids and were ruled over by proper Kshatriyas like Rajputs. They are a non elite caste of Cow herds. The only reason Ahirs are relevant today is because these cow herds breed like rats and have power in this memeocracy.
>Some, such as A. P. Karmakar, consider the Abhira to be a Proto-Dravidian tribe who migrated to India and point to the Puranas as evidence. Others, such as Sunil Kumar Bhattacharya, say that the Abhira are recorded as being in India in the 1st-century CE work, the Periplus of the Erythraean Sea. Bhattacharya considers the Abhira of old to be a race rather than a tribe Topkek. Forget whitoids , even Indian historians agree that ahirs are abbo subhumans
>>235459 These same pigstorians said that Ayodhya Ram mandir never existed , fuck you believe these eno Marxist pigs, fuck you
