A background of India is a compact synthesis offering the grand sweep of Indian historical past from antiquity to the current. It is still the definitive textual content at the kingdom. This re-creation has been completely revised, containing new study, and an updated preface, index and dateline. The authors study the most important political, monetary, social and cultural forces that have formed the historical past of the Indian subcontinent during this survey. This vintage textual content is an authoritative specified account which emphasises and analyses the stuctural trend of Indian heritage.

Example text

After the burning down of old Kot Diji there followed a new phase of reconstruction noticeably influenced by Mohenjo-Daro. Kalibangan Kalibangan in Panjab experienced a similar upheaval in the latter part of the third millennium. Situated on the then Ghaggar river, this city was next to Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro. What is most interesting about Kalibangan is not its size, but the excellent preservation of its Early Harappan strata. This makes Kalibangan an eminent witness of the circumstances which accompanied the transition from the Early Harappan to the Mature Harappan period.

The appearance of the terms dasa and dasyu in these names raises the question whether some tribes of this people had already joined the Vedic Aryans at that time and may have even served as their guides in the course of their immigration. Parpola proposed the interesting theory that the Dasas originally belonged to the early pre-Vedic Aryans of southern Central Asia. Their names seem to indicate a relationship with Old Iranian in which an etymologically identical ethnic name daha is known and dahyu has the meaning of ‘land’.

Only further research will provide answers to such questions. The absence of mother goddess figurines in Kalibangan is peculiar, since these goddesses were ubiquitous in all other centres of the Indus civilisation. New Kalibangan seems to have flourished without interruption until the eighteenth century BC. After a brief period of decline, the inhabitants abandoned the city in the seventeenth century BC. The reasons for its decline seem to be rather obvious: the Ghaggar river had dried up and thus the city lost its agricultural base.
