Indus Valleyball, also called Harappan Civilizationball (named after one of its former cities, Harappaball), or IVCball, was a Bronze age river valley civilization and one of the first civilizations to exist. It was located in present-day Pakistanball and Indiaball, but at its height around 2300-1900 BC, it also had some colonies in Afghanistanball and even in Iranball, although the territory in Iranball was very small and insignificant.
Indus Valleyball evolved from Mehrgarhball around 3300-2800 BC. Indus Valleyball's origins is unknown but most archeologists believe it was Dravidian in origin. The people of Indus Valleyball had brick houses, complex draining systems, water supply systems, and an understanding of metallurgy. They used money, and traded with other people.
Advancements and height of power
Once Indus Valleyball was formed, it had many contributions to the society and human socioeconomic evolution. This is probably where the occult art of yoga originated from. One other main things that they created was the "ruler" - the measuring stick. The first ruler was made out of ivory. The rulers were calibrated up to 1/16 of an inch, which is less than 2 milimeters. This can be shown from the bricks used in the civilization, because the bricks had the dimensions that corresponded to these units. Cities like Harappaball and Mohenjo-Daroball were the greatest achievements of Indus Valleyball. These cities are well known for their impressive and organized layout. They were also one of the first cities ever to use indoor toilets and plumbing systems. At its height between around 2300-1900 BC, Indus Valleyball also had colonies in small parts of Afghanistanball and Iranball.
Decline and legacy
Indus Valleyball began to decline when the Aryan people from Central Asia began to move towards the Indian Sub-continent. As they moved downwards they brought with them their languages and their warlike nature. Once the Aryans came they they mixed with the Dravidians of the Indus Valley, and began to settle down, and started agriculture. Indus Valleyball collapsed soon after, around the year 1700 BC, although there is some archeological evidence that some of its descendants stayed in the area until as late as 1500 BC, or even 1300 BC. After this, the Aryan tribes started to expand more into South Asia, assimilating and/or conquering most of the previous population. Since Indus Valleyball collapsed around the same time when Indo-European tribes first came into Asia, some people speculate that Indus Valleyball was destroyed by an Indo-European invasion, but this is not a fact nor has it been proven or disproven yet.
It is also possible that Indus Valleyball was an early Dravidian state and that its descendants fled deeper into South Asia, becoming the modern Dravidians such as the Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, or Brahui. It is also possible that the Brahui, a Dravidian group that lives in present-day
