I have never seen you quashing this statement, can you tell me when and where you quashed this statement?
Oh really!!.. Lets see now.. If I remember correctly.. you claimed at the time that Prof. Indrapala said akin to the following..
Which I pointed out at the time as being a total fabrication.. since you haven't even read his book!!.. here is what the Professor did say..
..the Ila (or Hela or Sila as the ancient Sri Lankan inhabitants were known) moved back and forth between Sri Lanka and South India just as the Demeda or Demela (Tamils) did. The idea of looking upon the Demedas as aliens was surely not prevalent in the Early Historical Period (EHP).
So then!!.. we have a Professor of History claiming that the ''Ila'' people and the Dravidian speaking ''Dameda's'' were two distinct groups!!..
But what does our self styled Forum historian claim.. ''the Dravidians known as the Eela people (Nagas and Yakkhas)''!!..
This is just one point I refuted at the time with accredited facts!!.. there were many others I don't indend to bring up here!!.. but the point is.. you my dear friend is incapable of accepting facts when their presented in front of you!!.. whats the point of debating with one that is just ignorant to the evidence placed before him!!.. :O)))
