*Indus Brami Script*

I’m just it!

In this thesis I put forward a new approach and method to the decipherment of Indus Script. The bilingual approach to Indus Seal cum Asokan Edict (one script, two languages) helps me to discover the Ibrami (Indus Brami) Script in Indus Seals. Brahmi in Asokan Edict is the modified form of Indus Brami Alphabets. This discovery opens the way for the decipherment of Indus Script and reading of Indus Seal writing. James Princep had already given the phonetic values to the Brahmi signs in Asokan Edicts. I have given the phonetic values to the newly discovered Indus Brami signs. I have prepared the correct chart of Indus Brami alphabets including the root sign, basic signs and differ- ent ornamental forms of alphabets. The phonetic value to the alphabetic sign is same in all context of the writings in Indus Seal texts. I have established the genetic link between Indus Brami and Brahmi of Asokan Edicts.
All scholars misunderstood the direction of Harappan Seal writ- ing. It is not boustrophadon or plough like. Disorder of signs and letters and words are the hallmark of Harappan writing. It is Sasarppari or snake like.( left to right, right to left) The reading of Indus Seal writing requires the making of words and order of words by rearranging the signs and letters on the basis of secret codes and clues in the seals, Ribus Principle, Acrophonic principle and basic rules of grammar. The general nature of the text goes from right to left in the seal impression with disorder of Alphabets and disorder of words.
The grammatical structure of the seal writing is closely related to the mixed structure of both Tamila and Daivek. So Rgveda was com- posed on the linguistic structure of Indus Brami writing without prefixes and suffixes but inflectional. The language of Harappan seal is known as Barati, a mixed language of Dramila, Prakritam and Samskritam (not Vedic Devavani). Star Goddess Rohini is known as the Goddess of Speech and Writing in three names, Eladevi, Barati and Saraswati in Rgveda (2.3.8). Harappan Languages are known in these names of Star God- dess Rohini as Dram+Ela-Dramila (Dravida), Barati and Saraswathi. The word Tamila or Dramila was originated in early Harappan Culture.

(The poet Kalidasa mentions the goddess of speech as Bharati “ Gadya Padyatmika Bharati Nissaret” (Kalidasa’s, Syamala Dandakam). “Bharati Padavali Thonnenam Kale Kale” Ezuthachan.
The significant discovery is that Early Harappan language is known as Tamila or Dramila or Dravida. Barati or Bharati is the Mature Harappan language and Devavani or Sura Bharati is the Late Harappan language. The Mature Harappan Language became the language of Baratas (Rishabha Barata). So it is called Barati, the language of Bharatavarsha. Dramila, Prakrita and Samskrita are the three stages of Harappan culture in the valleys of Narmada, Sindhu, Saraswati, Bhagirati and Bharati (Nila).
Why the Great Mother Goddess helps me to discover the lost world of Harappan Saptajana tradition? She wants to revive the real tradition of Bharata Varsha - the Science and Philosophy of Rishis and Munis, Rajarshis and Yatis and the tradition of oldest Sramana Dharma (Jainism). Like the final phase of Harappan Culture, the new generation of modern India is deviated from the scientific and philosophic traditions of old Saptarshikula. It is a deviation from the true tradition of Bharatavarsha. The basis of Indian Culture is Science and Philosophy and not the ritualistic religion. The Great Mother Goddess wants to free Indians from the ritualistic religions and make them to lead a scientific life based upon the Cosmic Law, the Dharma of Rishis and Munis, Rajarshis and Yatis. My reading of Indus Seal texts open to the lost world of Harappan Saptarshis , Rajarshis Munis, Yatis and the Sramana Dharma of Jainism founded by Rishabha Naman (Rishbha Nadha).
By discovering Indus Brami Alphabets and reading of Indus seal texts, the Harappan Culture enters into the Historical Period. Ancient India’s Historical Period started from 4067 B.C.E, when the Pulastya Kula made the Makiram star Calendar seal with an absolute date in Ajamatha Kala Chakram (6508). Indus Seal Texts are known as Burjapatra or Granda the oldest written texts of the people of India and Pakistan.
