Megh: A Mediterranean race - Central Asiatic Origion-
"In my own judgment, however, though some ground must exist for each of these divergent opinions, the weight of probability rests most decidedly with the theory of the central Asiatic origin of the Mediterranean race, and also of the Aryan family." Page-411
"I think it appears from the foregoing citations that the general opinion among etlmologists sustains the doctrine of a wide-spread Mongoloid population over the continents of Asia and Europe, save where the Dravidians held possession of the peninsula of Hin dustan and neighboring regions." Page-153
"If it is asked what has become of the posterity of Cain, or of other nonsethite sons of Adam, it may be re plied that Cain’s 'posterity became merged into the type of Mongoloids or .Dravidians; and other posterity of Adam perished with the Sethites, in the ﬁoodﬁ'i‘ . I feel constrained, therefore, to assume tentatively, that we must look for the descent of the Adamites from a Mongoloid or a Dravidian stock. The Turk ish Csmanlis and Turcomans approach, physically, nearer to the Mediterranean stock than any other Mongoloids. Their geographical position, moreover, in the regions about the Caspian sea, and the eastern shores of the Euxine, is geographically approximated to the Adamic seat. Of the Turcomans,‘ Vambéry says that they alone of all Mongolians do ndt possess high cheek-bones, and the blonde color is predominant among them. Next follow the Karakalpaks, whose women, with a white color and large dark eyes, pass for good-looking. Then come the Kirghis, whose women and children have generally a white, almost European, complexions"page-347
"-----Of the Bhotiya tribes, also Dravidians, Brace says: “Their physique is not materially different from that of the Tamuls." Page-348
"All the Turanians of Asia carried this civilization with them into the countries they colo nized.” The language of the Median Turanians, ac cording to Westergaard, was decidedly Turkish in its aiﬁnities; the Chaldaean Turanian was Ural-Finnish; the Susianian was a connecting link between the latter and the Dravidian. “The Turanians brought to Bab ylon and Assyria that singular system of writing called cuneiform.” page-141
