Narnaund: The fourth phase excavation has started in Rakhi Garhi, which is famous for the Harappan civilization. In the initial phase, excavation work was started on mounds one and three. These sites were closed the previous year by excavations on these mounds. Now these pages have been reopened. First, these locations are excavated and brought forward. Significant remains have been found in these places over the past year.
Under the direction of Dr. Sanjay Manjul, Director General, Archaeological Survey of India, Delhi, the staff of the department and the students of the Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya Institute Noida take part in the excavation. In the past year, excavations have also been carried out on their behalf. In the initial phase of the excavations, no important remains were found, but experts believe that during the last excavations, they will take the unfired brick wall and along the street and see what kind of houses they built. How was the waste management avoidance. All these facts will come to light only after the excavation, all eyes are on it.
Roads were made absolutely straight: Dr. Manjul
dr Sanjay Manjul, Director General, Archaeological Survey of India, Delhi, said the roads built at the time were very straight and a large pot was placed on the edge. This pot used to be left in the trash. We found two pots, now we continue digging. Into the roads that these people once built, they dumped the industry’s waste material to make it hard, for at that time roads were not built of coal tar and gravel.
The development should take the villagers of Rakhigarhi: Shinde
Former Vice Chancellor of Deccan University Professor Vasant Shinde said that the government should develop Rakhi Garhi by taking the villagers with them, only then can Rakhi Garhi be developed. In cooperation with the state government, the central government and those who excavated at Rakhigarhi, work should be done to develop Rakhigarhi as a tourist destination so that the villagers can get employment opportunities.
The government is slow to develop: Sheoran
Dinesh Sheoran and Balram, founders of Astitva Heritage, said the government has been slow to develop Rakhi Garhi. Even after such a large site, not even the roads have been built here. There is also no drinking water supply. The government should develop this village into a major tourist destination through extensive excavation work so that the youth of the village can find work. An exhibition of the excavated remains was also organized by the Astitva Foundation.
