First human may come from India

Now that I'm so far away from Moscow, where I was born, living in London and seeing all people and cultures mixed together, I am trying to identify myself and my roots. Now this theory about Aries invading India and bringing their achievements to "retrograde" India, as there are no scientific facts confirming that it really had happened. Nothing about any kind of invasion has been documented in ancient Indian literature including Vedas. It is more likely that the theory of the invasion was invented by colonists in the late XIX - beginning XX centuries, as this could give a good excuse for them bringing their "advanced" technology and civilized ways of living to India for "second" time in the history. However, there are scientific facts that show that civilization in India is much older and dates back to 8000 B.C. at least if not earlier , also the archeological researches show that mathematics and astrology were very advanced, and the facts documented in the oldest known text Rig-Veda, that date back to 4500 B.C. and there are facts suggesting that Egyptian civilization has adopted the mathematical and astronomic knowledge from India. The oldest gene found in the oldest human being is M1. It is suggested that men appeared on Earth some time around 70 000 B.C. Some people with that ancient gene M1 can still be found in Kerala, India.
This is one of the videos about origins of civilization of India:

Now here are recent studies suggesting that the origin of M1 gene is Asian, and it is more likely that first human beings appeared in India.

PubMedCentral article:

"The coalescence age of the African haplogroup M1 is younger than those for other M Asiatic clades. In contradiction to the hypothesis of an eastern Africa origin for modern human expansions out of Africa, the most ancestral M1 lineages have been found in Northwest Africa and in the Near East, instead of in East Africa. The M1 geographic distribution and the relative ages of its different subclades clearly correlate with those of haplogroup U6, for which an Eurasian ancestor has been demonstrated.

This study provides evidence that M1, or its ancestor, had an Asiatic origin. The earliest M1 expansion into Africa occurred in northwestern instead of eastern areas; this early spread reached the Iberian Peninsula even affecting the Basques. The majority of the M1a lineages found outside and inside Africa had a more recent eastern Africa origin. Both western and eastern M1 lineages participated in the Neolithic colonization of the Sahara. The striking parallelism between subclade ages and geographic distribution of M1 and its North African U6 counterpart strongly reinforces this scenario. Finally, a relevant fraction of M1a lineages present today in the European Continent and nearby islands possibly had a Jewish instead of the commonly proposed Arab/Berber maternal ascendance."
