    Nomadic Aryans invaded India ca. BC destroying the Indus valley civilization and exterminating the Indus inhabitants. Thus ended the most brilliant civilization of the ancient world. Subsequent to this invasion, India was plunged into years of the Vedic Dark Ages. When cities were built again, it was under Scytho-Greek influence.   Spiritually, the Indus Valley Civilization was a very highly advanced developed one in the literate and script, yet, unfortunately, the scholars can not depict what the Indus Valley people wrote about. If we were able to read what they wrote by the time, we would know very clearly what they wanted to describe, and for what they wrote.

It is likely that the symbol retained the same meaning and sound value as at Harappa, though it occurs only as an isolated symbol on Megalithic pottery and not part of a script.

2 H owever, the latest discovery of an Indus Text with four signs engraved on a Neolithic polished stone celt (ca. BCE) from Tamil Nadu is a revolutionary advance with far-reaching implications. The symbol on the Thai pottery resembles a diamond. It occurs in the Indus script in diamond or oval forms (Signs and in Figure 3).

Thousand of inscription written in this very script area lying scattared in Mesopotamia and what is interesting is that they are all published. the evolution of the Indus script. Pottery has scratched symbols since BCE. Some of these pot-marks became signs of the Indus script, which was created during the final phase of the Early Harappan period, between BCE.

It is possible and indeed even probable that the Early Harappans got the idea of writing through stimulus. statistical regularities’ in Indus inscriptions, which have played a key role in the Indus-script thesis since G.R. Hunter’s doctoral thesis, have been grossly exaggerated, and can only be.

In the fictional system invented by Jha and Rajaram, for example, the supposed Indus ka sign can be read kaa, ki, ku, ke, ko, etc., or can also represent the isolated consonant k.

A script like this opens the door to an enormou s number of alternate readings. The number of signs is between and of which 40 or 60 are basic and the rest are their variants.

The script was mostly written from right to left. Parpola and his Scandinavian colleagues came to the conclusion that the language of the Harappans was Dravidian.

INDUS VALLEY CIVILISATION. Introduction: The Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) was a Bronze Age civilization (– BCE; mature period – BCE).; The Indus Valley Civilization is also known as the Harappan Civilization, after Harappa, the first of its sites to be excavated in the s on the banks of a dried up bed of the Ravi river, an Indus tributary (now in Pakistan, Punjab).

Farming settlements began around BCE and around BCE there appeared the first signs of urbanization. By BCE, dozens of towns and cities had been established, and between and BCE the Indus Valley Civilization was Author: Cristian Violatti. The Indus symbols are also found on objects such as pottery, bangles and even copper tools.

SIGN USAGE. Signs are incised on pottery, spindle whorls, figurines and other clay artifacts. The signs are not components of ornamental motifs, although a few examples are abstractions from decorative prototypes.

A sign may occur as a single, isolated sign on an otherwise unmarked area, or as a component of a sign group. LAST summer the Indian press carried sensational stories announcing the final decipherment of the Harappan or Indus Valley script.

Based on the fact that only one sign is displayed on the pottery surface, these examples represent a premature stage in the development of the Indus Script. Slightly over basic.
