The excavations of late 20th and 21st century revealed the existence of a Bharatiya civilisation in unbroken continuity since 8000 BC. The Archaeological findings of early 20th century discovered an urban culture named as Indus-Harappan, which were used by the westerns and their Indian pupils in anti Bharatiya manner. The Aryan Invasion/Migration theory was output of this theory through, which they artificially divided the BharatiyaSamaj on the basis of Aryan-Dravida and Adivasi-Videshi to destroy national integrity. We all have witnessed and experienced the socio-political divisive movements of South and Western Bharat 1940 onwards. To counter and to stop the misinterpretation of Archaeological facts a great nationalist Archaeologist Dr BB Lal through excavation at Kalibangan in 1960-61 presented Indu-Saraswati theory, which was in accordance with the socio-cultural Vedic traditions of Bharat.
The theory of Dr BB Lal was landmark because it provides an overview of socio-cultural evolution of Bharat, from Vedic era (8000 BC) to the emergence of the urban colonies of Harappan era of 3rd millennium BC.
The excavations in Pakistan and Bharat revealed a gradually evolving Saraswati-Harappancivilisation from the middle of 8th millennium BC.
This archaeological data supported by radiometric dates suggested an unbroken history of Bharatiya culture of minimum last ten thousand years. But the textbooks of Ancient History of Bharat places the national history of Harappa, 3000 BC of Marshall, which was promoted and established by so-called mainstream historians for distortion of our identity.
From last three years, the Department of Sanskrit at University of Delhi is running a project of Vedic Chronology. Through which we have established that the date of Rigveda (6000 BC as suggested by Astronomical tool) can't be of 1st millennium BC as western and communist historians propagate. And mature Harappan era belongs to later Vedic literature (Brahmana, etc), which has juxtaposition and amalgam with archaeological artifacts of that era.
In September 2015 we organised a national seminar (widely published by the national and international media) on the 'The Chronology of Vedic Literature (Samhita, BrahmanaAranyaka, Upanisads and Sutra): A Reassessment (on the basis of recent researches in textual, archaeological, astronomical, mythological, sociological, epigraphically and Genetic studies. In which more than three hundred scholars of various fields resolved that all recent researches, particularly archaeological, suggest that Vedic culture is indigenous to India, which has recorded history of more than ten thousand years. And this scientific and rational history of our Bharat should be introduced in Education system of this country.

Bursting The Myths
– The Rakhigarhi-Bhirrana findings burst the myth of Aryan invasion and 5,000 year old history starting with the Aryan settlement
– The existence of Saraswati Civilisation is not mere mythical but now approved by the scientific and archaeological evidences
– The Shivalik excavations also tell about the Sangam Civilisation in Sounthern parts of Bharat which is almost parallel to the Harappan Civilisation
– The advanced nature of urban and industrious life may compel us to amend our attitude towards seld
– The Masol findings, if true, could negate the African origin theory of present day human species
