Published by Dr Suvarna Nalapat
A study conducted in Kerala by Dr Suvarna Nalapat Trust showed cultural ,philological and anthropological continuity of IVC people and ancient inhabitants of Kerala.Just as Mathivannan pointed out a philological continuity of Indus valley scripts even in modern Adivasis of central India, this cultural link with Kerala is important. This proves that at one time all Indians had a common script for communication , whether in the Indus valley, central India, Dravidian Tamil Nad and Kerala. Here a few examples are given in pictures.Thanks to ASI Thrissur circle,Cochin and Malabar Devaswom Boards and Zamorins of Calicut ,Paliyam Group and other Ooraalars for permitting the Research to be carried out in temples in their jurisdiction.

Where did all the Indus people disappear ? Theanswer is Nowhere.They are still here in India.Thepeople of India are the Indus people. One importantpoint for recognizing this is the continuity of Industradition by Indians over the ages. A journey intotemples of Kerala showed relics and trails of Indusscripts developing into Brahmi/and other modernIndian scripts. The study was conducted withpermission from Archeological survey of India,Malabar Devaswam Board and CochinDevaswam board and Ooralars of differentDevaswams and Zamorin of Calicut.

modern human being inIndia. No one from outsidewas allowed to enter theIndian soil except for traderelations and that too withrestricted entry ports.Until late in history, seatrade was controlledentirely by Indiansthemselves. Kerala havinga wide coastal belt on west coast was the chief powercontrolling foreign tradeand relations through searoute. The templetraditions are continuouswith the traditions of Indua valley peoplesuggesting the Dravidianorigin of IVC as AskoParpola suggested.
 
3Where did all the Indus people disappear ?The answer is Nowhere.They are still here in India.The people of India are the Indus people.One important point for recognizing this is the continuity of Indus tradition by Indians over the ages.Geometric patterns of Thovari are much discussed. In the eighties , I saw these Thovary pictures fromSri M R Raghavawarrier’s collection, and noticed the astronomical,archeoastronomical andmathematical connections, the Mathematical law for construction of an Octagon and for ship andairplane discussed . A comparison of one of the scripts of Ahmas Papyrus was attempted. These paperssaw light later , in Bhashaposhini (Malayalamanorama, Kottayam) and in Kottakkal Aryavaidyasalasouvenir. But , unfortunately, were unnoticed by historians and archeologists alike, probably becausethe articles were written by a Doctor , a lay person , in their fields.Here I give some geometric patterns,scripts, sculptures seen in temples ,a treasurehouse for artists. Theart forms made with lines,dots,cup markings, and sometimes with colours too are strikingly differentfrom one another but so similar in their patterns. Several Indus valley, Harappan signs are repeatedshowing that people of Kerala were the original Indus valley Dravidians . (As Asko Parpola suggests aDravidian ancestry for IVC Harappan people).These were the forerunners of the later templearchitectures .So many human figurines carrying symbols and scripts as their various instruments ( forday to day use,war, for singing and dancing etc) in great processions do occur still in India annually inTemples. The hunting expeditions are mock activities enacting Pallivetta of the Lord Vattaikkaran (TheHunter /the first man/son of Siva as Kirathasoonu) and by all temples in India,Harvest festivals etc are allaccompanied by such processions. Panels of Palaazhimathanam show the processions in entirety.So isVasantholsava panels.Understanding the Anthropological subaltern patterns of Indian people istherefore essential for understanding Indus script.Thovari script read by Sri Raghava Warrier as Sri Vazhumi and by Airavatham Mahadevan as I(thu)pazhamai is repeated in an ancient temple floor in Karikkad in a slightly different way, but probablymore like sri Warrier’s reading. .The script in the temple , seems to be
