The Dawn of Civilization Project Researches India’s Early History
With one significant exception, all literature on India - be it by foreign or Indian authors - relates to a period after the Vedic age began. Only one author, Bhagwan S. Gidwani, has, in "March of the Aryans" and in his earlier book "Return of the Aryans," traced the drama of India's civilization to its pre-Vedic roots.
Building on his work, AIS intends to broaden the focus of its research to consider the history, culture and traditions of ancient India from 8,000 to 5,000 BCE, well before the Vedic era.
AIS is well aware that such an ambitious undertaking will require the multi-disciplinary support and coordination of many researchers, historians, scholars, archaeologists, linguists and others. The cooperation of private agencies, foreign governments, and international organizations such as UNESCO will most likely be required to conduct original research by accessing historic sites and possibly excavating new ones.
Our Request to YouAIS is setting the project into motion by empanelling a team of experts to establish research priorities and guidelines, as well as its operational framework and budget.

Review By G. T. Shahani President, Research & Reference Center (Historical Division) Bhagwan S. Gidwani’s latest book – ‘March of the Aryans’ – is unparalleled in scope, reach and span.

INTRODUCTION: Several eminent personalities including Swami Vivekanand, Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, Veer Savarkar and Shri Aurobindo firmly believed that Aryans were homegrown, born and brought up in India.

By Parveen Talpur “What’s in a name?” Take the case of Sindhu the original name of River Indus. Different people and different platforms discuss it in different ways.
