Hey Prabhu,Hi Vikram,
I am intrigued by your statement that the haplogroup J2 is considered to be of Middle-Eastern origin and found in a lot of higher-caste Indians. In fact, my haplogroup is J2 (M172)and I have documented evidence that I am a gaud saraswat brahmin. Could you please provide me with the literature source on which your statement is based? Thank you.
Can u furnish some information on ur mtDNA and ur gotra.
