Another conclusion that we can derive from this hypothesis is that since "tribals" in India have been isolated from the other three races in India by remianing inside forests etc - so not only their language or societal makeup - but also their racial characteristics would differ from that of any of the three (due to neglible inter-racial reproduction). So "tribals" would have a dissimilar genetic makep from all three of the races in India.

For my own satisfaction I am digging up facts - which were not taught to me in school - since most of these discoveries have taken place by geneticists within the past five years.
Some may be interested - and some assumptions about my being biased on the basis of language -be cleared.
FACT: Indian Subcontinent is the only place (perhaps) in the world where we have all three races - Mongoloid, Negroid and Caucasians - all in a diluted form.
FACT: In hotter South India humans are generally darker skinned , curlier haired -Negroid features.
In extremely cold Himalayan region up North -Kashmir, HP- skin is generally lighter - features Caucasian.
In East and North East- features generaly tending to be Mongoloid - eg Sikkim or Nagaland .
CONCLUSION 1: Indian Subcontinent was the hotbed for racial development -through geographical - and later through inter-racial unions between humans remaining within the sub continent - racial differences have become minimized . Whereas those who migrated out of India - tended to have sharply defined racial features - Mongoloid for those who went East or Caucasian for those who went West to colder climes.
Those who remained in Central India tend to have mixed features - as is commonly visible to anyone who has travelled through India.
Migration from Africa Current Theory:
After google searching I am a bit confused about when did China Man come out of Africa and develop his/her racial features -http://english.people.com.cn/200210/12/eng20021012_104924.shtml
but recent researchers mostly geneticists (in the past five years) all seem to agree that Homo-Sapiens (modern humans) migrated only once- from Africa came via the coastline to India some walked via Indonesia area to Australia .
Ques: If Dravidians were the earliest Indian people -- then from where did they come from - since that area is completely surrounded by sea - did they cross the Indian Ocean from Africa or via the Khyber Pass up North in Afghanistan area?
Ans: Shoreline was about 250 meters below current sea level 50,000 years ago - so there was landlink between Indonesia-Australia and between India-Sri Lanka . Dravidians also came via the sea shore route -like a plain road (see map link below)

(see map of migration)
Those Humans who stayed in India after a few thousands of years moved Northward and Westward to Europe and Russia by that time the Last Ice Age had gone and that area was inhabitable.
Humans already spoke atleast one language when they migrated from Africa 50,000 years ago - though communication/Art had started long back ( http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Anthropology_Language_Origin ).
This language(s) they brought to South Asia - mostly in the shoreline areas of South India where they found good weather and fertile lands (possibly). Those who crossed the arid Deccan Plateau and Vindhyachal Mountains towards North - developed another culture and racial features - Caucasian towards the North Western Himalayan regions and in fertile lands in North and East India--- and Mongoloid towards the North Eastern Himalayan foothills.
However, China Man theory would suggest that Mongoloids came from China area to settle in North Eastern Himalayas thousands of years ago -though no history seems
evident (as far as I know)
Language Interaction: Dravidians in South India developed their own language(s) -so did those in North, East and Central India - based on Sanskrit. Later migrations from China and South East Asia -from the North East added to the language mix - with new languages based on Chinese ones. Over the centuries - the people in different parts of the Indian subcontinent exchanged words and their languages were enriched by taking words from each other.
Still, there were some groups of humans who were deep within the forests (currently called tribals) in Central and West India (MP, Rajasthan, Chhatisgarh Gujarat)- who did not interact sufficiently -so still have their unique languages (I am assuming) unlike either the Sanskrit based or Dravidian languages or Chinese languages. Ditto for their culture and religious beliefs.
Thus, we have overall three different races in three different parts of the Indian subcontinent - speaking languages which are also grouped in three independent categories -- but have a large number of common words - esp Sanskrit words.
