Why Dholavira? Such a place to make a city! After reading the signboard, I understood why. Because that place was considered precious for two reasons, for the house of the sun and second for the salt, salt was a valuable commodity. In Karen, the south is called ‘muksu-the silver chin of the sun’ and the north as ‘mutu-the golden chin of the sun.’ There is a word called Moksh- the heaven. Now it all depends on which direction someone is standing. Is there any relation with the tropic of Capricorn from Dholavira to Myanmar?
There are only two months when day and night are equal, and that falls according to the Indian lunar calendar Chaitra and Asvin, which is Spring and Shard ritu. And there are two crop seasons, known as rabi and Kharif, which are Arabic. I don’t know what they are called in various other languages. During ancient times life is governed according to seasons and the calendar. Star observations were significant; a year was calculated around those harvest seasons. The position of Dholaveera was significant. The sign on the northern gate is the sun Uttarayan to Dakshinayan.
