I thought the Dravidians were original inhabitants of India while the Rajputs were descended from the Mittani. Well, my bad. Guess it's too late to make that correction with the Indigenous Horse Society of India and Marwari Horse Breeders. I even wrote a time line of the Indian horse that was used to raise funds for the Indian horse society in Great Britain. Funny I've never heard anyone from Castle Dunlod telling me that they were not descended from those great horse breeders of ancient times. Guess I need to tell them that according to Historium they are not descended from the Mittani.Rajputs have Gond Dravidian origin. Wiki says the following about the Rajput Chandelas. (Same could be said for Bhatis, Bundelas, and Rathors too, and more, regarding their central Indian tribal origins.)
"The British indologist V. A. Smith theorized that the Chandelas were of either Bhar or Gond origin. Some other scholars including R. C. Majumdar also supported this theory."
