Does anybody have any data on E in S Asia/Central Asia? I remember the Tarim basin had some as did Pashtuns(a recent study said it was Iranian in origin and probably ending the idea of even a minor greek contribution to Asia once and for all!).

Something that might be related is the presence of Nestorian Christians and the Pzayrk rug(of supposed Armenian orgin).

Are you interested in E* or its subclades?

I'm Indian and have E-M78 Y-dna due to a Yemeni paternal ancestor from a few generations ago. There is significant Yemeni diaspora in South India ('Chaush' community in Deccan region, particularly) and Indonesia.
