<<There is another possibility for the language affiliation of the Indus
civilization : the burushaski. They have their own vocabulary for
agricultural terms and technical terms, it is not borrowed from indic
languages. They are located in the very North of the Indus region,
because they were chased by aryan invaders. What do you think of this
theory (from "La genèse de l'Inde" by Bernard Sergeant)>>

Do you or other list members know any details about the Burushaski ethnograpgy
(plants and animals they breed, traditional clothes, houses, vehicles, pottery),
anthropology and mythology? My sources are very miserly.
