Readers and critics often talk about historical thrillers Sometimes they invent sub genres like archaeological thrillers or mythological thrillers while trying to pigeonhole some unputdownable action driven story dotted with physical or metaphorical blasts from the pastHere comes something which to uote the great Amitabh Bachchan stands taller than all such fictional works akin to This is history as a crime thriller Let me describe the situation in such termsThe EstateThere used to be a massive river fed by perennial sources bringing life and sustaining civilisation over a very large area One day geographical whims and other factors started killing it Slowly it withered and eventually died forcing its children to move away but not without its loving memory They mixed with others resettled and gave their memories a written shape while developing new features in their culture due to changing geography Eventually known history came to consider them as the starting point of historyThe InheritanceArchaeological seismic and hydrological studies submitted irrefutable proofs to show that the successors now inhabiting over a vast region had originated from the area and the people nourished by that once mighty river and NOT from some imaginary people who were otherwise being euated with rulers and heroesThe CrimeSome people panicked They were apparently well respected but had come to define their positions through rhetoric and ideology than evidence An intricate web of lies and deceit had been spun in the meanwhile to ensure divide and rule by declaring North Indians as invading Aryans and South Indians and tribal people as the original residents Now that web started getting unraveled due to hard facts brought out by satellite imagery and excavations So those esteemed Marxist historians notably Romila Thapar Irfan Habib and RS Sharma swung into action They received support from other people with vested interests As a result versions of history which have got discredited than sixty years ago continued being taught in schools forcing billion plus people to forget their past and their own heritageThe FightbackFor that you have to read this book This incredibly meticulous and well argued book clearly establishes1 There was a Saraswati river fed by numerous streams and also feeding lakes other rivers and above all the people who had once set up one of the greatest civilisations in the history of mankind2 Those who had composed the Rig Veda and post Vedic literature were intricately aware of its existence and the role that it had played once3 The civilisation still being described as the Indus Valley Civilisation is actually an Indus Saraswati civilisation at least if not the Saraswati Civilisation4 As a result of the gradual decay and death of Saraswati that Civilisation withered forcing the people to migrate eastward while retaining many many customs which are being practiced even today5 The so called Aryans were actually descendants of those who had lived during the Indus Saraswati Civilization6 THERE WAS NO ARYAN INVASIONIf you are an Indian please read this bookIf you have even the slightest interest in history please read this bookIf you are opposed to the teaching of lies and falsehoods just to suit the interest of rulers practicing divide and rule please read this bookIt s actually a classic

The Lost River On The Trail of the Sarasvati

Read Ñ The Lost River On The Trail of the Sarasvati 106 Characters The Lost River On The Trail of the Sarasvati The Indian subcontinent was the scene of dramatic upheavals a few thousand years ago The Northwest region entered an arid phase and erosion coupled with tectonic events played havoc with river courses One of them disappeared Celebrated as Sarasvati' in the Rig Veda and the Mahabharata this river was rediscovered in the early nineteenth century through topographic explorations by British officials Recently geological and climatologi. The sarasvati has been pulled down to the earth from the realm of legend The river was lost but not forgotten And even as she dried up she grew in vigour as an incarnation of Speech and Inspiration Her last waters gurgling to a stop the goddess took up her dwelling at the source of every true thought and word a source unlikely to ever run dry Your excellent waters fill this whole universe A thoroughly researched work on the saraswati river and the Sindhu Saraswati civilization Part one deals with the geographical location of the saraswati river the topographical analysis of the river bed and the textual analysis of the vedic river and tradition How the Ghagghar hakra system came to identified as the Vedic Saraswati river how the paleo beds show that part of the waters of both Yamuna and Sutlej once flowed into it making it a mighty river indeed Infact a part of the saraswati river still seems to flow underground as our Puranas and legends say it doesThe second part deals with the Harappan civilization that once thrived on its banks In fact the number of sites of this civilization on the Saraswati river are far than the ones on the Sindhu river Michel Danino here deals with the main sites on the Indian sideThe third part deals with the civilizational continuity and the remarkable continuity of religious beliefs and motifs in the Indian subcontinent from the Harappan civilization to the second urbanization on the Ganga plains and continuing upto the present day The ethos of the Indian civilization was shaped during the neolithic and chalcolithic periods From the neolithic time till almost today there has never been in spite of spectacular changes in the course of time a definite gap or break in the history of the Indian subcontinent Contrary to what the western indologists propose there doesn t seem to be any evidence for the claim of two distinct Harappan and Aryan cultures Both the Harappans and the Aryans lived on the banks of the Saraswati river and they are most likely the same people Even the earliest cities on the Ganga plains show the same design and construction as those of the Harappan civilization When the mighty Saraswati dried up the people started moving southwards towards Godavari and eastwards towards Ganga And it is here in the Ganga basin that the second urbanization has taken placeI hope we can get an update on this book with the latest architectural genetic findings May purifying Sarasvati with all the plenitude of her forms of plenty rich in substance by the thought desire our sacrificeShe the inspirer of true intuitions the awakener in consciousness to right thoughts Sarasvati upholds our sacrificeSarasvati by the perception awakens in consciousness the great flood and illumines entirely all the thoughts Rig Veda

Read Ñ The Lost River On The Trail of the Sarasvati 106 Characters The Lost River On The Trail of the Sarasvati Fied in the now dry Sarasvati's basin The rich Harappan legacy in technologies arts and culture sowed the seeds of Indian civilization as we know it now Drawing from recent research in a wide range of disciplines this book discusses differing viewpoints and proposes a harmonious synthesisa fascinating tale of exploration that brings to life the vital role the lost river of the Indian desert' played before its waters gurgled to a st. Here was a mighty river as large as the Indus and the Ganges systems that was expressly reverenced above all other rivers in the Vedas that shored up the Indus Valley civilization even dispatched old cities and created new ones as it mercurially shifted its course again and again by connecting and disconnecting with the neighboring Himalayan rivers flowing down to the marginal seas It was amply written about in both literary and archeological tomes oftentimes with evolutionary and hydrological precision impressive even by current day standards Other well known rivers continue to flow its path today traditions tied to the river continue to be followed in the places that are now dry and built upon Still the Saraswati River was presumed to have been mythological because the proof of its existence was muddled up with traditional stories and all geological evidence was buried beyond the reach of scientists until todayToday satellite imagery confirms that the River Saraswati did exist and substantiates many of its hydrological properties that were recorded in the old texts Scientists are now sifting through the old archeological material religious texts and folk stories and separating the errors from the truths the erratums from the political plugs the nonsense from the non science the non science from the science in general challenging some previously divined truths and also crediting some previously dismissed views This book is a comprehensive compendium of the search for the lost and the research of the found River Saraswati and the civilizations that lived along it It is presented thoroughly than any other book has done thus far for laypeople Except its dryness rivals the River Saraswati as it is today I still waded through the book s slough imagining the river s once awe inspiring stature because it was written conscientiously and with untiring diligence I read only recently that among other things the purpose of science is also to come up with uestions that have never been asked before This books shares some new uestions that archeologists have only just begun to ask and that says a lot about how far we have come with exploring the River Saraswati and how many uestions there are to ask and with some luck answer In archeology guided speculation is an important component of discovery I hope the next edition of this book includes many well designed maps and colorful images integrated into the text to help readers unfamiliar with the geography of the area string along with the author better The author shares a lot of detail on the past and present work by archeologists to find and excavate Indus Saraswati sites But I would have liked to see the places alongside the 1500 kms of River Saraswati come to life in a vivid way by tying archeology to anthropology and the civilization to the river I would have also liked to see story telling and scientific political and social contexts of the current archeological investigations Because this book is dry I recommend that the reader read the last two chapters that is Part 3 Section 11 The Saraswati s Testimony and the Epilogue Saraswati Turns Invisible before diving into the book That way you kind of jump into the pool knowing how deep the water is This book would make a fantastic documentary film Noticias De Los Montoneros up the Indus Valley civilization even dispatched
