Well, I did not find Ratanajoti under R. I believe Panikkar is German.

Bhattacharya, Gadre, and Sen published in the dark ages of the
standard Aryan Invasion model tiptoing colonial scholarship. Therefore
they don't count.

Deshpande is an iffy. The one article he wrote in 1997 talks about
indigenization of Aryans. Same old stuff. Does not count either.

Hemarajani is writing about "3 kisses". Who knows what that is.

D. P. Agrawal is the only good one. But that is after the recent hue
and cry raised by the archeological and geological finds. Its
reactionary. Hence does not count also.

In any case these are minor contributors that do not find honorable
mention on the front page of IMPORTANT scholars.


I dont see many Indians contributing on the pieml and cybalist.
