|Putting these points together we
now see that the Vedas show the same development of culture, agriculture and arts
and crafts as Harappan and pre-Harappan culture. Vedic culture is located in
the same region as the Harappan, north India centered on the Sarasvati river. The abandonment
of the invasion theory solves the literary riddle.
Putting together Vedic literature, the largest of the
ancient world, with the Harappan civilization, the largest of the ancient
world, a picture emerges of ancient India as the largest civilization of
the ancient world with the largest and best preserved literature, a far
more logical view, and one that shows India as a consistent center from
which civilization has spread over the last five thousand years.
Therefore it is necessary to set aside the discredited idea
of the Aryan invasion and rewrite the textbooks in light of the new model,
which is an organic and indigenous development of civilization in India
from 6500 BC with no break in continuity or evidence of significant intrusive
populations such as the invasion theory requires.(*2)
