Chennai link to Harappa
With the deficient monsoon giving India the blues, this scientific discovery has obviously got the entire country and the world sitting up and taking notice. An international research study says it was climate change that snuffed out the Indus valley civilisation. Chennai has a special reason to be proud of with this finding, as two scientists from the city were part of the research team.
At Chennai’s Institute of Mathematical Sciences, when Ronojoy Adhikari and Kavita Gangal were analysing the growth and decline of the Indus valley sites (also called Harappan sites) over time, they found that something curious happened around 1900 BCE.
