Three Generations in Indus Valley Civilization!

This article explains the apostrophe like strokes after the circle sign. See the pictures please.

 

The Irish name ‘Mac Donald’ means Son of Donald and O’Shaughnessy means Grandson of Shaughnessy. Mac means son (Makan in Tamil) and O is the abbreviation for grandson (Mor means big or Og means young).

Studying Irish names may help us to decipher Indus seals. Many of the scholars in this field think that the 4000+ seals found in the Indus Valley have names of people or the quantity of exports or imports.

Instead of O’, female will have Ni which means daughter of grandson of XXXX.

Instead of Mac, female will have Nic which means daughter of son of XXXX.

This is what we find in ancient Sanskrit and Tamil works. Hindus always remember three generations. The Irish people simply followed the ancient Hindu customs. The famous Vishnu Sahasranama sloka runs like this:–

(1)Vyasam (2)Vasistha – naptharam (3)Sakthehey pauthram-akalmasham I

 

(4)Parasara-athmajam vande (5)Suka thatham thaponidhim II

 

I bow to the flawless Vyasa, great grand-son of Vasistha, grandson of

Sakthi, son of Parasara, and father of Suka, and one who leads a simple, austere life.

Names of five generations:

 

Here we see Vasistha, his son Sakthi, his son Parasara, his son Vyasa and his son Suka – five generations in one sloka and the all the five generations are saluted. This Hindu custom is followed in Assyria and other places where we see Hindu influence through Hittites, Kassites and Mitannians.

This is a typical Hindu custom. Tamils also follow their north Indian colleagues in naming. Most of the Tamil poets have the prefix Nal (Nar) meaning good as in Nakkiran, Nannagan, Nachellai, Nappinnai. They simply followed Sanskrit names. In Sanskrit Su as in Sugandhi, Sumathy, Sukarna (Indonesian President Sukarno) etc

Tamils follow Sanskrit language in the alphabetical order, Case suffixes, origin of sound etc. My theory is that both the languages have come from same source. The biggest proof is Sandhi rules. No other languages except Tamil and Sanskrit have these Sandhi (Punarchi) rules. If there is any language that has Sandhi to some extent they are related to Sanskrit!

(I have already written an article about it in Tamil)

Like Irish Mor (big), Tamils have Mudu Kannan, Mudu Kuthan and like Og (young), they have Ila nagan (Mudu=old or big and Ila= young). In Sanskrit they have Maha, Yuva etc. (Purananuru poet Masathan=Maha Sastha)

Tamils also say son of so and so XXX (e.g. Madurai Kanakkayanar Makanar Nakkiranar (Madurai Kanakkayanar’s son Nakkiran).

Tamil takes prefixes like Sanskrit in names and adjectives!

Indus Seals

On Indus seals we see round symbol and then apostrophe (two strokes) followed by several letters. I guess that this also like Mac Donald or O Shaughnessy. Just to identify the person, they say son or daughter or grandson of so and so.

Hindu Brahmins who perform Tharpan every month for their ancestors also pray to the departed souls  “father, grandfather and great grandfather”- Pitha , Pitha Mahan, Prapita mahan. Remembering three generations and paying respects to them at all times is a must in Hinduism. Understanding these things will help us to decipher the Indus seals properly if they contain personal names.
