Indus Script. The term Indus script (also Harappan script) refers to short strings of symbols associated with the Indus Valley Civilization, in use during the Mature Harappan period, between the 26th and 20th centuries BC. In spite of many attempts at decipherments and claims, it is as yet undeciphered.

It takes a lot of trust to believe that Mahadevan and Parpola have deciphered the Indus Script Corpora. One example of faith-based proofs is seen from the identification of River Sarasvati/5. Among the Indus people the cow is of no particular account, its place with them being taken by the bull, the popularity of whose cult is attested by the numerous figurines and other representations of this animal. 7. Of the tiger there is no mention in theVedas, and of the elephant but little. Both these animals are familiar to the Indus people. 8.
