I read the Times of India piece cited  by Mr. S. N. Subrahmanya.
Interesting piece from Editor's desk on S. Talageri's work.

Title : The Aryan Issue

If the Indian homeland theory is to be branded a "pet
Hindutva theory", may we call the foreign homeland
theory, supported by Tilak and Savarkar as well as Phadke
and Date, a "pet Brahmin theory"?

Our Correspondent replies: Mr Talageri seems to be
needlessly worked up over a single paragraph in my
report. He cannot deny that the main concern of the
Hindutva forces on the Aryans were originally the
inhabitants of India. It is very important to them
politically. I was referring to the Hindutva forces of
today. The view of Tilak and Savarkar cited by Mr
Talageri are irrelevant in this context.
