What is Indus Civilization and What Makes it Unique?

Indus Civilization

Indus Civilization, also known as Punam Khanom or the Old Stone Age, is a period in subcontinent history. That lies between the grip of the Aryan invasion and the establishment of India as an independent nation. It’s also known by various names, from Indus Valley Culture to Induslandic Culture, to Rigvedic Culture, to Dravidian culture.

Who Were the First People to call India ‘India’?

The Indus Valley Civilization, also known as the “First Culture in Asia”, was a Eurasian Paleolithic culture that existed between 3,000 and 2,500 BCE. Numerous remains of their settlements have been found in Central Asia, Europe, North America and South America. The Vedic period (around 1000 – 400 BCE) saw the rise of the Indo-Aryan language family as well as the rise of Brahmanism as the dominant religious belief system.

The present day: Making of a new Nation

The decline of the Indus Valley Civilization in the late Neolithic period, followed by the rise of the now extinct Aryan culture. Led to the formation of the Indus Valley Civilization in the next few centuries. In the wake of this, the present-day word “Indus” refers to a land bridge between Central Asia and Southeast Asia. That connected the Indus Valley with the Arabian Sea around the 3rd century BCE.

How was India structured during Indus Civilization?

The Indus Valley Civilization saw a fusion of technology and art. A development that continues to inform contemporary Indian art and architecture. Much of the art practiced in the Indus Valley is mystery layer a cultural artefact dating back thousands of years. That can be found only in certain places such as ancient sites or museums. The mystery layer art is based on patterns, textures and colors that are unique to that place. It has been used in temporary altars, mason work, and as decor in temples and sites of pilgrimage.

The art is believed to have been created to supplement the more basic art practiced by the earlier millennia Indus Valley cultures. Similarly, the process of creating the modern Indian novel a task that has been completed over two millennia is a result of the fusion of the mystery layer and Western novel genres. Indian novelists have turned to the mystery layer to inform the structure and characters of their works and allow them to stand apart from their Western counterparts.

How do you know if your cultural heritage is authentic?

There are a number of ways to tell if your cultural heritage is authentic. One of them is whether or not you can still name specific aspects and features of your culture. For example, if you can identify specific sites, objects, and even words associated with any given culture, you’re probably authentic. If you cannot, that does not mean that the culture does not exist. It just means that there are parts of it that we do not entirely know.

ITech Educate

Another way to tell if your cultural heritage is authentic is to ask people who practice that type of culture whether or not they also know what they are talking about. If someone tells you that they do not know what they are talking about, it does not mean that they are not aware of what they are talking about. It merely means that they do not know the details of what they are talking about either.

The first city in India, also known as Indraprastha, was built by the Indus Valley Civilization.

The first city to be annexed by India, also known as Indraprastha, was definitely not a part of the present-day state of Gujarat. It was the most important city of the Indus Valley and was perhaps its most important trading partner. It was situated on the banks of the Indus River and was within the limits of the ancient Ganga dynasty.

What is historical Indus Civilization?

The first Indus Valley Culture to be excavated was the Thatta Culture in the Satpura Range of Western Madhya Pradesh in the early 1970s. The Thatta Culture was an early example of the use of iconography to convey prosaic but intense emotions. The Thatta Culture was followed by the Ganga culture in the Satpura Range in Central Madhya Pradesh in the 1980s. Both of these were based on a kind of ritual bathing called Parsada.

What makes Indus Civilization unique?

In the words of the author, Saraswati, the old time Indian writer: “Our culture has the unique ability to recall the past by creating an ‘ancient’, ‘unknown’, and ‘immemorial’. It is essentially a ‘new’ India.” In a recent conversation, author and archaeologist Dr. Nalini Gondvar requested that people take a step back and look at the “ancient” and “unknown” that define the present day, “new” India. The “new” part refers to the post-Independence period, which is characterized by rapid development and the “immemorial” part refers to the pre-Indus era.


The first city in India, also known as Indraprastha, was built by the Indus Valley Civilization. The present-day state of Gujarat is the most important city in the ancient Ganga dynasty. The history of Indian culture is rich with contributions by ancient and medieval Indian peoples. They played an important role in the arts, literature, and science. The music of India is also known for its complex hybridity, which means that each style has its own unique sound and feel.
