Surviving Harappan Civilisation
Surviving Harappan Civilisation
Description

About the Book:

Journalist, historian, litterateur and folklorist, Dr. Kashyap maintains that all the known Harappan settlements are not dead mounds. Some flourish at Nirmand, some 150 kilometres upstream from Ropar on the right bank of the Satluj in Punjab. Nirmand is one of nine settlements in the Upper Satluj Valley locally known as sthans or theris.

The author bases his claim on epigraphical and archeological evidence, written records, oral traditions, legends and lore. He cites as further proof a functioning citadel and complex of sacred wells used for special religious rituals.

With the finds at Mohen-jo-daro and Harappa in the early 1920s, the ancient history of India has acquired a new perspective. Yawning gaps have been bridged and a definite pattern of continuity has emerged. Yet it is still assumed that this civilisation in its physical form lies dead and buried. Dr. Kashyap challenges this presumption in his book.

In a foreword to this deeply researched work, Dr. M. S. Randhawa says it is "unorthodox, bold in assertion and challenging in its conclusions? Its style is racy. I hope it will be read with pleasure by all people who are interested in India's past."
