Vedic Discoveries in Pakistan
KHAIRPUR: The find of copper coins from the Harrapa ruins negated the perception that Europe introduced metallic currency in the world, said Dr JM Kenoyer of the University of Wisconsin, said on Tuesday. The coins had impression of Hindu Gods, Rama and Shiva.
Presenting his research paper on Regional Cultures and Chronologies of the Indus Civilisation in New Perspectives from Harappa at the International Conference on Archaeology of Pakistan at the Shah Abdul Latif University (SALU), he said the civilisation of Harappa was not 4,000 but 5,000 years old. "The remnants of the silk cloth industry also found from Harappa. According to him the Harappa civilisation was ruined after the downfall of its rulers. "No evidence is found regarding the exchange of culture," he added. However, the joint director-general of the Archaeological Survey of India in his paper Dhola Vira Harappa City said it has been found that there was grooming of urbanisation but the civilisation declined due to earthquake.
He said there used to be planning to meet water storage as remains of rich water reservoirs have also been found at Dhola Vira. He claimed that the Dhola Vira civilisation was 1,500 years old. People of that area enjoyed pleasant atmosphere and that civilisation also declined with the decline of the society. He said Dhola Vira has the same age and history like those of Moen-Jo-Daro.
Vedic Discoveries in Latin America
Walking past a newsstand this week, your eye may be caught by magazine cover about Vedic origins worldwide. Alongside that cover page it asks, "Is it True?"
Flip open the magazine and you'll find that the answer is a confident "yes!" U.S. News has summarized exciting new archeological evidence that confirms the historicity of the Vedas.
For example, a few months ago, a group of archeologists found an stone tablet in Northern Brazil dating from the 7,100 century B.C. The Sanskrit inscription listed Vedic Shalok.
The significance of these findings is that they toppled years of archeological skepticism. Many archeologists have long questioned the historical accuracy of the Vedas, maintaining that there Arayan race was of Invaders and they came from Europe.
This latest discovery isn't the first time the evidence has confounded the skeptics. For instance, Kenneth Kitchen, an Egyptologist at the University of London, told U.S. News that iscriptions recently discovered in Syria confirm that Vedic Aryans came from the land called Indus by ancient Egyptians. There were rulers like Vikramaditya, Chandar Gupta, Dillepa, Mahada, Sanjita and Krisna whose empire were spread to Arabic Lands. According to the Puranic History Vedic Aryans were given the land called Aryavrata (Indian Sub Continent) in later stages as in earlier stages all continents were one Gigantic Land mass. This might be the reason that when the Continents separated some Aryans parted their way accidentally and landed in Southern America. According to Vedic History Western Parts across the second largest ocean was home of deities for some time. Archeological discoveries also help document the veracity of Vedic texts. For example, scholars have long doubted Aryas accounts of being Indians. They maintained that the Aryans simply Invaded India and settled down. But archeologists recently discovered the Vedic Artifacts in all over India especially in Central and Western India. Then Seals of Mehragarah and Harappa had the pictures of Lord Rama and Lord Pashupati. These discoveries suggest that the Aryas were the Inhabitant of India prior to Last Ice Age. With new discoveries scholars constantly are changing their views about Aryan Invasion theory. The latest archeological news is an exciting reminder that the Vedic Aryas has nothing to fear from scientific inquiry. Yes, the Vedic Civilization is the oldest and most developed.
