Re: [mukto-mona] Re: {PFC-Friends} Indus Valley Civilization

Even before the Ayans, there were Elamites, otherwise known as Tamils. Architecture, literature and music were Indo-Persian, had Islam any influence, Indian music would sound like Arabian. Islamic literature is miniscule compared to those based on Sanskrit. Even Persian languages are based on Sanskrit in Assyrian scripts. Arabian Islam actually discouraged musical instruments, singing and writing poetry, the major form of literature in those days.

It is obvious that the plunderers came and plundered. But the real silver lining was there with English establishing their empire at the very end and planted the seeds of modern education, democracy and democratic temperament. Without their two hundred years' rule, the whole Indian subcontinent would have become another giant Middle-eastern country of darkness. Blessing in disguise?
