Global Drought ended Harappa not any invasion! Sarasvati river and the Vedic civilisation by NS Rajaram Part 6

Global Drought 2200-1900 BC

A joint French-American study of northern Mesopotamia just noted (Wiess, Coutry et. al. 1993) that the Akkadian empire of Mesopotamia, which had extensive trade links with the Harappans, was brought to an abrupt end as the result of a severe drought that began about 2200 BC and persisted for nearly 300 years. They attributed this to a global climatic change of increasing aridity that began nearly a thousand years earlier climaxing in what is now called the Great Drought of c. 2200-1900BC. Since the mature Vedic Harappan civilisation is also known to have ended around the same time the cause of the end is very obvious and common to all great civilisations of the period the Egyptian, Mesopotamian and the Harappan.

Note: Clear evidence is presented to us even to this day if we care to take a deeper look. The physical world map from the north of Africa to the Indian Subcontinent is nothing but a great arid desert interspersed with a few large rivers like the Nile, the Euphrates, Tigris, Indus and the now dead Sarasvati.  What does this imply? Can some of the world’s largest, most ancient civilisations have been born in a desert like condition? Then could they have succumbed to the desert caused by the Great Drought or to some phantasmal Aryan race?
