Indian Forest Service officer Parveen Kaswan tweeted about his visit to Kalibangan in Hanumangarh district of Rajasthan.

In his tweet, he wrote, “Some 4000 years back people of this subcontinent (or whatever they used to call themselves back then) were using baked bricks, baked pottery, drain pipes, precise weighing stones and seals for business purpose. Pictures from my visit to Kalibangan of Hanumangarh district, Rajasthan. Which was part of Harappan culture. The wonder that was India.

He further mentioned about Arthur Llewellyn Basham’s book, where he wrote, “The earliest Europeans to visit India found a culture fully conscious of its own antiquity – a culture which indeed exaggerated that antiquity, and claimed not to have fundamentally changed for many thousand of years. To this day legends known to humblest Indian recall the names of shadowy chieftains who lived nearly a thousand years before Christ, and the orthodox Brahmin in his daily worship repeats hymns composed even earlier. India and China, in fact, are the oldest continuous cultural traditions in the world.”
