BASIS OF THE ARYAN INVASION THEORY
While there were fewer cities in the post-Harappan age, Dr. S.R. Rao has found two sites - Dwaraka and Bet Dwaraka in Gujarat - which were large urban sites. Dwaraka, dated around 1500 BC, was in fact larger than Mohenjodaro, the largest Harappan site.(*5)

In one of his most recent papers on the subject archeologist Jim G. Schaffer of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland Ohio U.S.A. states in bold: 

The shift by Harappan groups, and perhaps, other Indus Valley cultural mosaic groups, is the only archaeologically documented west-to-east movement of human populations in South Asia before the first half of the first millennium BC.(*6)
