Om, Namaste, yoga and India’s tradition of nonviolence originated along the banks of the Sindhu (Indus) River. The American Institute of Sindhulogy (AIS) is a non-political, non-religious, non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of knowledge of the ancient Harappan (Indus) Civilization - Sindhu-Saraswati and other ancient civilizations of India including Ganga, Yamuna, Brahmaputra, Kaveri, and their lasting contribution to world civilization for equality, liberty, justice for all, non-violence, peaceful co-existence and protection of environment.

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.
