This is the first real attempt to decipher the Indus script. In this first part, nearly twenty lines of the texts have been deciphered and interpreted after a full discussion about the type of the Indus language and its relation with Sanskrit. The Indus language belongs to the so called agglutinative type consisting mostly of monosyllabic words. After a stupendously long history of ups and downs, only faintly known to the Vedic seer Dirghatamas, it evolved as accented inflexional Sanskrit, ceasing to be monotonous agglutinative.
The author has taken all care to convince the critical world of the Indus to studies about his view-point by reconstructing the dead and forgotten Indus language. He has tried to show the missing link between Indus and Sanskrit and, by the way, has also challenged the reconstruction of parent IE.
