Quantity:

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.

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, more scientifically inclined scholars around the world have taken up the issue seriously and are gradually coming to agree with the view that the Harappan civilization is a continuity of the Vedic culture.

The present anthology of articles on the Vedic-Harappan Relationship is a result of an in-depth study by some of the senior most scholars of the discipline who debated the issue at length in the international seminar organized by the Panjab University, Chandigarh. It encompasses views presented on scientific lines and studies from various angles - archaeology, history, literature, linguistics and other related aspects.

This book is sure to make a valuable contribution to the discipline and contains rich food for thought for students and scholars of the subject.
