Call of the Lost Ages is a study of the Indus Valley Civilization script. They are one of the many peoples that have been almost forgotten over time. It's a sad thing but inevitable I'm afraid. This book is about the script (writing) that has been found that is now bringing this group back into focus; back into our history books. It's incredible, what we can still learn about the ancient world through symbols and pictures. It's as if those that lived long ago are trying to tell us a story.

By Bree Wolf, author of Fireflies

This work underlines the importance of scientific research based on the principle of objectivity and logic while exploring the beauty of an ancient language and the way it is tied into history.
Even for someone who has no ties to this field, it is a fascinating read that stays with you and makes you think; and those are the best ones!

Subhajit states that “every group of human beings is bound to leave its imprint on the sands of time.”
He leads us to understand that we should not view the history of a country by its wars and conflicts, rather we should see the interaction of the various human races and above all how they “helped each other survive and grow”. He states that script is a visual aspect which a given civilization leaves behind for future researchers, and its evolution is a continuous and gradual process. A civili

I received an advance review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book is about the Indus Valley Civilization and the study of the script they used with the hope of finding out more about the Indus Valley people, their way of life, and what happened to them. They had built a very advanced civilization that suddenly and mysteriously disappeared without a trace. They used a script of signs and symbols similar to the scripts used by other ancient civilizations. The author gives ...more

This was a very interesting and unique book. The author must have done a tremendous amount of research over extensive years before putting his findings on paper. It's a study of the Indus Valley script and its civilization. I must admit, I don't usually read books with genres that I have no knowledge about but reading the synopsis, it sounded fascinating. I'm glad I did, it made me realize that there are many civilizations around the world that are declining fast....and the sad part is, that we ...more

“Sometimes, in the ancient writing samples found in the Indian subcontinent, we find that a mixture of Harappan and Brahmi features has been used. This definitely points towards a continuous evolutionary process that transformed the Harappan script into the later day Brahmi. This also explains why many of the Harappan signs seem to have been simply carried forward (even in actual form) in the Brahmi script.” 1 likes
“Considering the fact that the Harappan script may have been proto-Brahmi, the underlying language to be expected should be Sanskrit, or proto-Sanskrit, or derivatives of Sanskrit. Many of the rules of evolution that apply to scripts are equivalently true for languages too. Like scripts, languages too render themselves to similar evolutionary inspections, as they too carry imprints of their journey down the ages.” 1 likes
