Inspite of Dr. Frawley's work not being respected, and Hindu revisionist  
thinking, the division into Aryan and Dravidian as "races" has long been  
forgotten, I think. In any case, the concept originated as a linguistic,  
not a racial distinction. Now the wheel has come full circle, with the  
postulation of a Nostratic super-family, which includes Indo-European and  
Dravidian languages as sub-families. I can check the references and post  
them here later.
