1.Scientist found that Indus Civilization developed without a flowing river.
Scientist from India and England found that Indus Civilization has flourished without a flowing river but flourished along a course of abandoned Sutlej River.  Earlier it was believed that Indus civilization has flourished around a flowing river called the Ghaggar-Hakra.

About the Findings: 
  • The Indus or Harappan Civilisation developed around 5000- 3300 years ago , at the same time the Mesopotamia and Egypt Civilisation developed.
  • Archaeological evidence shows that most of the Harappan civilization developed along the river bank of Ghaggar-Hakra river.
  • But the latest study shows that Harappan Civilisation developed without flowing river but flourished under along the course of abandoned Sutlej river.
  • A Sutlej river used to flow 8 thousand years ago along the trace of the Ghaggar-Hakar river but rapidly change its course upstream.
  • From this we can understand that three thousand years later, Harappan people settled along the area has abandoned river valley occupied by seasonal monsoon river instead of large river.             
  • This finding will help the archaeologist to take a fresh look on the development of Harappa or Indus valley civilization.
