The same language was reaching the agglutinative stage, when suddenly its speakers disintegrated due to some tragic event. The western branch, under the favorable conditions of nature, reached the in-flexional stage in the ‘land of the Soma plants’ outside the present Indian territory. When there was a slope downwards, hymns began to be composed which form the early part of the RV. A group among them had shortly earlier marched towards Central Asia on their way to Europe. They were the Greeks, Romans, Teutons, Slavs, etc.
