The Lost River On The Trail of the Sarasvati Free read Û 102 The Indian subcontinent was the scene of dramatic upheavals a few thousand years ago The Northwest region entered an arid phase and erosion coupled with tectonic events played havoc with river courses One of them disappeared Celebrated as Sarasvati' in the Rig Veda and the Mahabharata this river was rediscovered in the early nineteenth century through topographic explorations by British officials Recently geological and climatologi. The sarasvati has been pulled down to the earth from the realm of legend The river was lost but not forgotten And even as she dried up she grew in vigour as an incarnation of Speech and Inspiration Her last waters gurgling to a stop the goddess took up her dwelling at the source of every true thought and word a source unlikely to ever run dry Your excellent waters fill this whole universe A thoroughly researched work on the saraswati river and the Sindhu Saraswati civilization Part one deals with the geographical location of the saraswati river the topographical analysis of the river bed and the textual analysis of the vedic river and tradition How the Ghagghar hakra system came to identified as the Vedic Saraswati river how the paleo beds show that part of the waters of both Yamuna and Sutlej once flowed into it making it a mighty river indeed Infact a part of the saraswati river still seems to flow underground as our Puranas and legends say it doesThe second part deals with the Harappan civilization that once thrived on its banks In fact the number of sites of this civilization on the Saraswati river are far than the ones on the Sindhu river Michel Danino here deals with the main sites on the Indian sideThe third part deals with the civilizational continuity and the remarkable continuity of religious beliefs and motifs in the Indian subcontinent from the Harappan civilization to the second urbanization on the Ganga plains and continuing upto the present day The ethos of the Indian civilization was shaped during the neolithic and chalcolithic periods From the neolithic time till almost today there has never been in spite of spectacular changes in the course of time a definite gap or break in the history of the Indian subcontinent Contrary to what the western indologists propose there doesn t seem to be any evidence for the claim of two distinct Harappan and Aryan cultures Both the Harappans and the Aryans lived on the banks of the Saraswati river and they are most likely the same people Even the earliest cities on the Ganga plains show the same design and construction as those of the Harappan civilization When the mighty Saraswati dried up the people started moving southwards towards Godavari and eastwards towards Ganga And it is here in the Ganga basin that the second urbanization has taken placeI hope we can get an update on this book with the latest architectural genetic findings May purifying Sarasvati with all the plenitude of her forms of plenty rich in substance by the thought desire our sacrificeShe the inspirer of true intuitions the awakener in consciousness to right thoughts Sarasvati upholds our sacrificeSarasvati by the perception awakens in consciousness the great flood and illumines entirely all the thoughts Rig Veda

He s managed to make something as mundane as data weave romanticism here A journey creating a magical web through seemingly everythingright from the verses in the Rig Veda to the hyperbole borowing a word from the author here of the stories in the Mahabharatafrom the painstakingly complex geographical and archaeological studies to the references strewn all over in folk loreAnd the mighty Saraswati flows amidst all the objections and counter theories present today on her once famed existence and inspires yet againIn 45 of its hymns the Rig Veda showers praise on the Saraswati her name appears 72 times and three hymns are wholly dedicated to herthe river s name may eually be rendered as she of the stream the flowing movement to uote Sri Aurobindo s translationthe wife of Uthaya a rishi was snatched away by God Varuna while she was bathing in the Yamuna In order to pressurize Varuna who dwelled in the waters and ruled over that element to return his wife Uthaya caused 600000 lakes of the region to disappear and command Saraswati to become invisible to leave this region and go to the desert And at any rate Saraswati did go to the desert Passion is the main thread in this book the author s the archaeologists and the explorers who went in search of the mighty river that disappeared He even takes you to the times of the Indus Indus Saraswati civilization and walks you through the Harappan streetsevidence after evidence of the continuity in the civilization and the backbone behind it all one mighty river that some even dismiss as just an imagination of the rishis
