Cultural differences with Vedic culture

The ancient Vedic people could not understand the real origins of the Mlechcha tribes who were highly skilled in weapons, warfare and material sciences but never followed the Vedic rites properly.

The confusion of ancient Vedic people in dealing with the unfamiliar tribes is evidient in the following passage from Mahabharata. At (12:35) is mentioned:- What duties should be performed by the Yavanas, the Kiratas, the Gandharvas, the Chinas, the Savaras, the Barbaras, the Sakas, the Tusharas, the Kankas, the Pathavas, the Andhras, the Madrakas, the Paundras, the Pulindas, the Ramathas, the Kambojas, the several castes that have sprung up from Brahmanas and Kshatriyas, the Vaisyas, and the Sudras, that reside in the dominions of (Arya) kings?. [sic]

This enumeration includes the varnas (Brahmanas, Kshatriyas, etc.), ergo first statement of not understanding would appear false. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.65.228.39 (talk) 03:21, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
