migration model. This contains studies on tribal structures,
culture, demographic settlements, collapse of the Indus

discussed including some historical aspects of the Mahabharata.
Fusions of the Rigvedic tribes to form bigger tribal identities
and effects of territorial settlements on the lineage identity
