Book Description

The Vedic texts, traditionally thought to be the foundation of Hindu 1 religion, Indian traditions, culture, and customs faced a challenge in 1920 with the discovery of the advanced Indus Valley Civilization (IVC). It is now believed that the Vedic texts predate the IVC timeline, and there is no evidence of gods, religion, or temples in the IVC, suggesting that these texts may not be linked to any specific religion. Contrary to the notion of a distinct Vedic Civilization, it is now understood as a continuation of the concealed Indus Valley Civilization spread across the Indian subcontinent. The IVC's location extends beyond its initial discovery site, challenging previous assumptions.

The process of religionization is thought to have commenced around the 9ª century during the Chola Dynasty. Artistic creations like the Nataraj statue and Bharatanatyam dance were associated with the Vedic texts, linking them to Hindu religion. Numerous temples were erected during this period. The Vedic texts, often criticized for references to the caste and Varna system, Sati system, and the suppression of women, have been interpreted as contributing to these societal practices. The Sati system, wherein widows were compelled or volunteered to self-immolate on their husbands' funeral pyres, resulted in tragic consequences due to misinterpretations of Vedic Texts. Widows faced restrictions, such as being forbidden from adorning flowers in their hair and wearing the Pottu or Kumkum mark on their foreheads, under the misconception of Vedic Texts.


The Indus Valley Civilization of India (IVC), which is more than T 5,000 years old, came to light for the first time through excavations conducted in Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro between 1861 and 1920. A full report on this was revealed only in 1999. It has taken more than 5000 years for facts about this civilization (IVC) to come out in the open. By then, many unbelievable developments had taken place in the world. Religion, races, and castes were created. These have been accepted and practiced by most of the people. This is a mistake born out of grave ignorance.

It was only in 1819 that the caves of Ajanta and Ellora, believed to have been created in the second century, were discovered by an English army officer, and made known to the world. It takes hundreds or thousands of years for so many truths to come out into the world like this. This includes the Keeladi excavation which is currently underway in Tamil Nadu.

Today's Indians are descended from the ancient Indus Valley Civilization of India. At that time, India was not as fragmented as it is today. India may have been ruled by many chieftains or divided into small kingdoms; however, it remained a unified Indian subcontinent. India, Nepal, Bhutan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh are integral parts of the Indus Valley Civilization of India. The descendants of the IVC still live in many parts of the world today. They are all the same race, though they are differentiated by many religions.

History says that the denizens of the Indus Valley Civilization did not know what religions and castes were. There is no evidence of the existence of religion and caste at that time to date. It is a stark fact that religions and castes were created later. Not all Indians living in India today have descended from the IVC. Over the last five thousand years, India has witnessed many invasions and occupations.
