Decoding Indus Valley script




TIMES NEWS NETWORK [ WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19, 2002 12:57:48 AM ]


ALLAHABAD: Director, Robertson Medical Institute and Ayurveda Ratna Gopalji Agarwal on Tuesday said he had deciphered the much-elusive Indus script which, he claimed, would prove historic in the realm of world history and civilisation.


In his latest discovery Mysteries of the world history unfolded, Agarwal told Times News Network that deciphering the Indus script would lead to genetic and radical changes in the current world history books.


He said his discovery had brought to surface mysteries shrouding Indus archaeological finds. He said interpretation of all these ruins had all along gone in wrong direction for the past 4,000 years since the inception of Indus and Rigvedic Aryan civilisation.




Agarwal affirmed that these ruins were full-fledged architecture of ziggurat, a rectangular stepped-up platform built up by bricks having blocks and graven iconic Indus script-based lexigrams of mother goddess Tirka or Durga, used as temple complex for worshipping by Indus people. This iconic culture of Tirka or Durga worship was the original religion of Indus and India.


Agarwal also revealed that this deciphering of Indus script, the linkage and location of Indus like religion and civilisation had been unfolded to encompass almost all countries of the world. Even Britain, Latin American, China, Mexico, Peru and Inca religions and civilisations were Indus like iconic and these people worshipped mother goddess Durga and Tirka.

Immanuel Velikovsky had some interesting theories also.

You might find "The Golden Bough" interesting. Also, you may want to try some Mircea Eliade (e.g., "Cosmos & History").

I'm going to have to review his stuff one of these days. I believe he touched on the problem of the Indus Valley civilizations.

Velikovsky was a noted nut. He was an intensely interesting and fascinating nut, but a nut all the same. Check out "Worlds in Collision" at the library.

Looks like the present day Kandahar is represented here as Gandhara?

Interesting, but I wonder where exactly the Aryans arrived from to the Indus Valley!

It seems that everyone in the universe has a grandsire who invented the light bulb/a father who invented powered flight, a somewhat greater grandsire who invented speech, and another who was married to the mother of all humankind.

OK, So what?

History is fun and educational (such as, if you don't know it, you will repeat it).

Unfurtunately, what is critical is what is done today, less critical might by WHY it is being done, and not critical at all is who did it first.

Unless you are a democrat.

I don't really care who "Eve" was or whether or not whe was my ancestor and yours, or yours alone.

What I do care about is which of here offspring can be trusted and which cannot.
Which can be relied upon most of the time not to try to kill me and those who want whatever I've got, for free, and because some distant bozo believes that it is OK for him or her to take it from me...."Because".

So. OK; reorganize history. Science does that all the time (without apology for the false theories it proposed previously)...just don't pretend that it makes any difference today.

'Cause it don't!

Actually i think it's Gandahar in Uzbekistan or up there somewhere. There are ruins and paintings there i saw on a TV show where there are people depicted with blond/red hair,
indian types, and chinese. It's that mysterious Uzbeki hidden civilisation.

The spot called Kurukshetra on the map would be close to present-day New Delhi - ~50 miles maybe.

Actually that's comparatively modern -- Gandhara, Taxila, etc. are only known of in the 1 millenium BC. The Indus valley and other civilisations in the Indian continent stretch back to 5000 BC at least.

Gandhara = Kandahar, in Afghanistan. hastinapur = New Delhi c. 300 BC. The rest are all Magadhan or early Maurayan names. The map itself depicts the Mauryan Empire c. 300 B.C. which stretched over most of the indian continent except for the extreme south. India did include Burma, Afghanistan and parts of cnetral asia.

...genetic and radical changes in the current world history books.

Ha ha ha. I love the way these Indians/Pakistanis use English. But don't laugh or draw their attention to it or they'll get really PO'd. Once, when I was in high school, an Indian student was going to take a picture of me. I suggested that he place a spotlight above my head so my Afro would be illuminated, leaving my face in shadow. He dismissed my suggestions saying, "You don't know anything about PHO-to-graphy." I replied saying, "That's okay. You don't even know how to say it." Umm mmm. That really frosted him. These guys (and most of the other males from the Muslim/Hindu Sotadic Zone) take themselves WAY too seriously. Latin American machismo looks Doris Day in comparison.

Kandahar is one of many Alexandrias. Gandhara could be it or another one.

from the following title:
Parpula's two volumes of photographs covering the collections of India and Pakistan, which appeared in 1987 and 1991... and his 1994 sign list, containing 386 signs (as against Mahadevan's 419 signs), are generally recognized as fine achievements, not least by Mahadevan... This is a significant figure. It is too high for a syllabary like Linear B... and too low for a highly logographic script like Chinese. the nearest comparison... are probably the Hittite hieroglyphs with about 500 signs and Sumerian cuneiform with perhaps 600+ signs... Most scholars therefore agree that the Indus script is likely to be a logosyllabic script like its west Asian contemporaries. [pp 281-284]

These Dravidian speakers are presumably remnants of a once-widespread Dravidian culture submerged by encroaching Indo-Aryans in the 2nd millennium BC... The Indo-Aryan hymns, the Vedas... recount tales of conquest of the forts of the dark-skinned Dasa or Dasyu... the Vedas repeatedly mention the horse in their descriptions of warfare and sacrifice, and this animal was clearly a vital part of Indo-Aryan society... But there is not horse imagery at all in the Indus Valley civilization and virtually no horse remains have been found by archaeologists. Hence the Indus civilizations is unlikely to have been Indo-Aryan. [pp 290-291]
Robinson mentions "a substantial inscription found at Dholavira near the coast of Kutch in 1990, which appears to have been a kind of sign board for the city." [p 295]

Lost Languages: The Enigma Of The Worlds Undeciphered Scripts Lost Languages:
The Enigma Of The World's Undeciphered Scripts

by Andrew Robinson

Uncracked Ancient Codes
(Lost Languages reviewed)
by William C. West
Sanskrit and early Dravidian, the ancient languages of India, seem to be the keys to deciphering the highly challenging script of the Indus Valley civilization of the third millennium b.c. in what is now Pakistan and northwest India. As with other languages, a photographic corpus of drawings, a sign list and a concordance must be compiled before decipherment will be possible. Work has proceeded along these lines for inscriptions on some 3,700 objects from the Indus Valley, most of them seal stones with very brief inscriptions (the longest has only 26 characters)... Robinson's descriptions of such analysis, and his accounts of both successful and unsuccessful decoding attempts, are clear, provocative and stimulating.
