ABSTRACT
The article investigates the disappearance of Harappa and Mohenjodaro in Pakistan and Kalibangan in India. Since the Harappan civilization has been part of the Vedic civilization, its disappearance has been related to the disappearance of Saraswati river where the civilization has flourished. Based on other interpretations, the river was presumed to have either been cut-off the perennial sources of water or the eastward divertion of its main water source which explains its non-existence.
