  Dr Dabral provides the references of Dr D.N Majumdar ‘s researches and mentions that Paleo-Mediterranean race came to India. Dr Dabral mentioned that there are signs of Paleo-Mediterranean and Oriental cultures in Uttarakhand at the time of Kol Mund culture. However, it is believed that this culture was merged with previous settlers and post settlers too.
                                                       Dravidian Communities in Uttarakhand
     Dr Dabral and other historians suggest that Dravidians also ruled once the Uttarakhand. Dravidians are Semitic group .They ruled Kols and slowly after the entry of Khas , the Dravidians became part of Khas culture.
  There are many signs of Dravidian culture in Uttarakhand that prove that Dravidian were there in Kol –Mund time and later on Khas time.
  The following words in Garhwali and Kumaoni languages are Dravidian origin as they are in same grammatical manners as Dravidian languages
गढ़वाली शब्द -कूड़ी , कोड़ी (मकान की ), चिकण , पोकि , पूठा 
गढ़वाली गाँव - कठुड़ , ककरूड़ा,  पठुडरतोड़ा , अमोल्डाअगरोड़ाकफल्डी आदि
कुमाउनी गाँव - दिगतड़लिखतड़घिगतड़ आदि   
 The Uttar Mahabharata does not detail much as Dakshinatya Mahabharata provides much details of Uttarakhand.
  The Dravidians provided many innovative cultures to India. The worshiping of King as deity is Dravidian gift to human kind. The Dravidians used to build temple. Many oldest versions of folklores of India were influenced by Dravids.
 Worshiping on Asan, Pashupati, amphibious God (ardh Nareshwar) is initiated by Dravidians.
It is said that present Shilpkar race of Uttarakhand is descendent of Kol, Mund, Kirat , Dravid and Khas races.
