Were then the Harappans themselves the Rigvedic people?. V. Were the Harappans=Vedic people indigenous? VI. Did some Vedic people emigrate westwards, out of India? VII. The emergent picture. Bibliography. Index.Professor Lal tells the reader, with ample photographic illustrations, that almost every aspect of Indian culture is deeply rooted in the past, which is at least 5,000 years old. He then gives an integrated picture of the civilization of those days--variously called the Harappan, Indus or Indus-Sarasvati civilization. Thereafter he deals with the ethnicity of the authors of this great civilization. With solid arguments, he refutes the theories that there was an 'Aryan invasion' of India, which destroyed the Harappan civilization or that there was an immigration of the (BMAC) people from Central Asia. He demonstrates that in all likelihood the Harappans themselves were the Vedic people and were indigenous. Further, archaeological and literary evidences combine to suggest that some time in the second millennium BCE a section of the Vedic people themselves emigrated westwards to Iran and even up to Turkey, contributing their mite to the local culture.
