Searching on the Internet, any person will see that the so-called modern gypsy researchers holding doctorates, (some of them without finishing the high-school!) made a dogma from the alleged slavery of Roma ancestors taken into slavery with the occasion of plundering of the indian city Kannauj by the ruler Mahmud of Ghazni(November 971 – 30 April 1030). To justify this alleged event of the forgotten history of Romani nation is called in help the book Kitab-al-Yamini, in which is noted that Mahmud of Ghazni plundered to Kannauj, a major city of more than 50,000 inhabitants, and, in 20 December 1018, captured the entire population, 'rich and poor, light and dark [...] most of them 'notables, artists and craftsmen' to sell them, 'entire families', in Ghazni and Kabul (according to Al-'Utbi's text).
All the gypsy researchers agree that the detail light skin and dark skin, is a proof that those indians were the ancestors of Roma, because only the Roma people have dark and light skin. This is a non-sense. It is known that in India exist the Kalasha nation, which almost all of them have blue eyes and are blond. Their language is Indo-Aryan, but they believe that are the descendants of the greek warriors of the emperor Alexander the Great. In Kitab al Yamini does not exist even a little mention about the name of Romani nation.
It seems that the gypsy researchers holding doctorates dont knew that that:
"...Rashidu'dd Fazhullah said in Jami'u't Tawarikh, I, p.66 that the hindu slaves found in villages of Inju in Iran in his time (c.1300) were mostly the descendants of the multitude of the Hindu slaves gathered by the Mongol commander Sali Noyan in his raids into Hindustan and Kashmir during the 1250s. The accounts of Timur's removal of a large mass of civilian population from Delhi and other areas may be read in Sharaffu'din'Ali Yazdi Zafarnama II. pp.122-24, 136,141, 153. Timur had earlier slaughtered about 100,000 captives in his camp gathered before his assault on Delhi (pp. 92-94), though Yahya Sirhindi, Tarikh i Mubarakshahi, p. 106, puts the number 50,000."(Footnote nr. 26, page 113, Economic History of Medieval India, 1200-1500, by Irfan Habib)
Now, the emperor Timur died 18 February 1405, and Roma and their language was first recorded in history by Andrew Boorde in 1542 in the Fyrst Boke of the Introduction of Knowledge. The great romanian historian Nicolae Iorga was convinced that the Roma came in Romania with the mongol invasion. Maybe was true, maybe not, but we see now that India was attacked by at least two times, excepting the attacks of Mahmud Ghazni. It is very shameful to declare that our nation was enslaved for near 800 years, by Mahmud Ghazni and in Romania for another 500 years. Nobody knows for sure when came the Roma from India, and why they left their country. Is very shameful to make without evidence a great warrior as Mahmud Ghazni the first Hitler of Romani nation. His memory should not be marred even invaded India , because we do not know for sure if he was the one who enslaved our ancestors.
The linguistic argument
Sarah Carmona in New Perspectives on the Genesis of Gypsy History, says: "Another key and influential element is the fact that three linguistic facets link Romani to languages used exclusively or almost exclusively in the Kannauj district. Both the chronology and the geographical location that appear in the documentary sources are corroborated by science, in this case, linguistics."
This statement is influenced by the assumptions of Marcel Courthiade held as DOGMA. In fact, the Romani language is akin to all New Indo-Aryan languages. I will proove it in my book. The Romani language was born INSIDE India, not in Greece, as the unprooven DOGMAS are abundant on the internet.The syntax, grammar, and word order are indian, not greek! This is what i discoverd after 25 years of hard researching in the gramamr of ALL Indian languages. The so-called greek grammar borrowed in Romani are in fact used in India also, i will proove it in my future book. I criticized the two professors Marcel Courthiade and Ian Hancok with the aim to improove our history, so i ask the two to not be angry with me, because the history proposed by them is shameful for the Romani people, being full of slavery. Nobody knows why the Roma left India.
Who am i?
My name is Cîrpaci Marian Nuțu, i am Rom Kalderash, born in Caransebeș city, Romania. I am born in a Pakivalo lineage. My grandfather Zurka was a Machvaya Rom, the village Maciova is very close to Caransebeș city. I am blacksmith as all my ancestors, i used to make horse shoes with my father and grandfather. I understand and speak all the Romani dialects from Romania. Soon i will publish my book in which i demonstrate with thousands of examples that the Romani language is born INSIDE India, and is not influenced by Greek, all the supposed greek words from Romani are in fact used in India, and could be borrowed from the invasions in India of Alexander the Great.
