You don't Aryanize Aryans. Yes, Academia.edu is like blogs and Wikipedia the holy grail.
If you are talking about the paper of Mahinda Palihawadana, then I would like to mention that Mahinda Palihawadana is a well respected Sri Lankan philologist who published quite a few papers in peer-reviewed journals of Indian philology.
From my link in the previous post:
"The Ravana temple is being built in Mahadev Amarnath and Navgrah temple premises in city's Chandpole area, where idols of Ravana's main deities, Shiva and Devi Kharanna stand."
That is my city and my neighborhood. I too am a brahmin from Chandpole, Jodhpur (though not a local). I do not know about Devi Kharanna. I do not mind if they are Ravana worshipers, Ravana after all was a great devotee of Lord Shiva and a great scholar.
