The search for Vedic-Harappan relationship has received serious attention of the scholars in recent years though the theory was put forward as early as 1920s. With the renewed interest in India's past, a number of works both by Indian and foreign scholars have been published on the subject. Where as a specific group of scholars continues to be sceptic about the idea going to the extent of calling it a fundamentalist attempt, the more scientifically inclined scholars around the world have taken... 
 The Principal Upanishads  Alan Jacobs The Principal Upanishads   $22.95  $17.21  Buy Now 
The origins of the Upanishads, sacred writings of Hinduism, predate recorded history.  They are thought of by many as perhaps the greatest of all the books in the history of world religions. Since they were revealed to the Rishis of the Vedic civilisation some 5,000 to 10,000 years ago, many have come to regard them as the kernel of the mystical and philosophical truths that are the basis of understanding religion today.  Alan Jacobs has used free modern verse to convey the essential...

Although the idea of a Vedic-Harappan relationship was put forward as early as the 1920s, it is only recently that scholars have given it serious attention.

 The Saraswati Flows On: The Continuity of Indian Culture  B. B. Lal The Saraswati Flows On: The Continuity of Indian Culture   $80.49  $60.37  Buy Now 
This book deals with two major controversies relating to India's past. First, It has been asserted by many scholars, both Indian and foreign, that the Sarasvati mentioned in the Rigveda is the Helmand of Afghanistan. The author examines the entire Rigvedic evidence and demonstrates that it goes counter to aforesaid assumption. On the other hand, there are compelling geographical data in the Rigveda itself which unambiguously show that the Rigvedic Sarasvati is none other than the present-day...

 The Rigvedic People  Braj Basi Lal The Rigvedic People   $87.99  $65.99  Buy Now 
For several decades it has been orchestrated that there was an Aryan Invasion of India which destroyed the Harappan Civilization. However, as shown in this book (pp. 10 ff.), there is no evidence whatsoever of any invasion or of the presence of an alien culture at any of the hundreds of Harappan sites. While one is glad to note that the Invasion theory is dead, it is a pity that it is being resurrected in a new avatar, namely that of Immigration, of people from the Bactria-Margiana...
