|Painted Grey Ware culture
represents an indigenous cultural development and does not reflect
any cultural intrusion from the West, that is, an Indo-Aryan invasion. Therefore, there is no archeological
evidence corroborating the fact of an Indo-Aryan invasion.(*41)
Painted Grey Ware is associated with sites that occur after the drying
up of the Sarasvati river, which further indicates its post-Vedic nature.
