The Indo-European word 'arya' meant the 'civilised' or 'respectable' according to general scholarly opinion (the rather tainted 'Aryan' term has been replaced by modern scholars with the more accurate 'Indo-Aryan').
This word, added to a plural suffix, possibly -na, produced Aryana, which is how these people referred to themselves.
By 1500 BC, these new folk began to filter into India from the north-west, from the direction of modern Afghanistan, displacing or mixing with the native Elamo-Dravidian peoples.
This particular branch of Indo-Europeans were the Indo-Aryans.
The second of them, Jarasandha, is mentioned in the Purana texts as a son of Brhadratha.The rains were drying up and cities were gradually being abandoned.Sophisticated Bronze Age chariot-riding, cattle-herding Indo-Europeans from the north became more greatly integrated into this region and eventually took it over.Kingdom of Magadha This was one of the first kingdoms to be founded by the newly arrived Indo-European Aryans in India after 1500 BC.The heart of the early Aryan territory was the region of Peshawar in modern Pakistan, but the Magadhas may have been amongst the first to venture further eastwards.
