Dawn and devolution of the Indus civilization

Rao, SR

₹ 2500.00

The author puts forth convincing evidence to prove that the decline of Indus Valley cities was not due to the invasion of barbaric Aryans unsympathetic to civilization but due to natural calamities such as floods dessication and tectonic activity. A strong Aryan substratum was already present in the Indus Civilization during its early days, and continued to the last, leaving its indellible impression on the fabric of Indian culture. Tired of natural disasters the Harappans migrated to the Sarasvati (Ghaggar), Drishadvati (Chautang), Yamuna and Ganga valleys in the East and to Gujarat and Narmada valleys in the South. There they lived in small villages selling their skill to the local population and transformed the political and cultural scene into what can be identified as the Vedic Culture.
