How Ithe ndus Valley Civilisation continued to exist from the Iron Age over the years, was the topic of discussion as part of the special lecture at the Institute of Asian Studies on Friday.
It was said that the worship of Korakkai was predominant during the bronze age, after which the civilization started diminishing and the remnants of its cultural iconography of seals evolved to take the form of Lord Shiva in the Megalithic period. This is a cultural icon in Dravidian culture. The time period between theBronze age and Iron Age has no information and the only point to link Indus civilisation with the Dravidian period is the Anthromorphic Axe (Mazhuvaal Nidiyon in Sangam poetry), it was said. Professor Naa Ganesan, who spoke on the occasion, said that he would soon be releasing a book with the interpretations.
