of the Vedas Prior to the Date of Harappa:
The drying up of the Sarasvati river
must have taken place some centuries earlier to the scientifically
decided date of the destruction of Harrappan culture i.e., 2500 BC.
This date can be termed as the terminal point of the prosperous
Sarasvati culture. The Vedas contain one sukta having so many verses
about the river Sarasvati. Thus, the date of the Vedas i.e., the
so-called Aryan culture goes earlier to the date of the Harrappan
culture and not, after it, as some Western scholars supposed without
any basis. The chronology based on this supposition is proved to be
incorrect. The two modern discoveries, one that of the yajnyashalas
in Harappan sites and the other of the dried track of river
Sarasvati have falsified the date and theory of Aryan invasion and
the separateness of the Aryan and, the Harappan cultures.
