From the Paper:

"The earliest of India's known civilizations, the Indus Valley civilization (about 2500 to 1700 BC), was known for its highly specialized artifacts and stretched throughout northern India. Another early culture the Vedic culture dates from approximately 1500 BC and is considered one of the sources for India's predominantly Hindu culture and for the foundation of several important philosophical traditions.
"Outsiders who came to India during the course of its history include the Greeks under Alexander the Great, the Kushanas from Central Asia, the Mongols under Genghis Khan, Muslim traders and invaders from the Middle East and Central Asia, and finally the British and other Europeans. Central to Indian history are the people of India who established complex political systems, whether local kingdoms or mighty empires, in which learning and religion flourished. The Indus Valley civilization, India's oldest known civilization, is famed for its complex culture and specialized artifacts. Its cities were carefully planned, with elaborate water-supply systems, sewage facilities, and centralized granaries."
