Bhaarata is Aarya and Melukaah(Hebrew-king). His asva is the bulland his soma is rice . He is most likely an Afro-Asian .Numerous Egyptianwords have their counterparts in Bharata .Phara-oh is Bhara-ta ( prabhu-bhadra- bull,king) .Their chief god the Ra – Harmachis bird is Bharata Ra-vi(bird)karmasaakshi(the sun).Their Isis is Bharata Usha(aja,iisa);Osiris(Serapis,usra,Rudra-bhadra) or Apis(hapis-aspa,Vrishaa kapi.Hanuman,Sugriiva etc are kapi purusha or kaavi purusha-saffronclad ministers of Rama –the king-migrating to Lanka-Ganga region fromHarappa. ) is Savitri ; Wepwawet(wolf god,prabhaata-dawn,prakaasa-light) or
Sed(dog god,teja-light,sada-rice) is Soma(bhadra-rice,vrika-wolf,Varaaha-Vishnu,vriihi- rice,svaana-dog); Khnum(ram-headedgod) is Daksha(ram headed).The Egyptian priests used to partially shave oftheir hair to make a bhadra(circle = patta) and note the bhadra on theforehead of the Harappan priest king(DK1909).The Brahmins shave their hairto make the puurvasikha or the pascimasaakha like the tail of the Fig leaf(patra-leaf;bhadra-head,bull,light,a staff;bharata-fire,light) to indicate light.The Egyptian priests used to wear white(bhadra) robes(like the robes of theChristian priests) to denote the white Sun and the pavitra(saavitra) wornby the Bharadvijas(Bharats).They used to have ritual bathing in the riverNile.Note the Great Bath of Harappa used for the saavitra bathing and theDeepaali bathing in the month of Asvina(narakacaturdasi).The location ofEgyptian and Assyrian mummies at Lothal(cf.the unicorn and the lamassu)further establishes the link between the cultures.Along with trade there
