Indus Valley Civilization I wish you were here,  

I wish I could have been alive at that time,                            

To see the river Indus still without a stir.

Belonging to the Chalcolithic Age,

You left no traces of iron behind,

Learning about you is a lot of fun,

And there are few of your kind.

I salute to the highly civilized people,

who lived there back then,

It is great how you had equal rights for

men and women.

Your cities were very well planned,

How you got such amazing skill I wish

to understand.

Public Buildings and Dwelling Houses were your buildings of two types,

Your drainage system was beyond words with properly fitted pipes.

Your society consisted of merchants, traders, and rulers,

Artisans, farmers, manual labourers and of course, the schoolers.

Your staple food was wheat,

But there was also barley, milk, fish, vegetables, mustard, and meat.

Your people wore woollen garments and cotton,

Shell, bone and copper jewellery were all the poor had gotten.

The main occupation of your people was domestication of animals, agriculture & art and craft,

They were also good at making boats, especially a raft.

The Mesopotamians were one of their traders,

Because of the river Indus, there were very few invaders.

More than 2,000 seals have been found in your various sites,

Your people were talented to great heights.

They worshipped The Mother Goddess,

In religion too, you were no less.

Well time goes by and you came to an abrupt end,

Why couldn’t you have stayed longer my friend!
