Moen jo Daro: Metropolis of the Indus Civilization (2600-1900) BCE) is a personal view book on the largest and the most elaborate city of the Indus Civilization, located in present day Pakistan. Beginning with the myths and legends surrounding the civilization, Moen jo Daro ends with an appeal for its 3-dimensional digital preservation in the modern age. In between it covers the accidental discovery of the city under the foundations of a Buddhist stupa, the life of its mysterious inhabitants, and the unknown ideology they followed as well the strange, undeciphered writing they left behind. The book is not a mere description of the architectural remains and the artifacts discovered in their ruins. It examines the theories of its rise and fall in the larger context of the Indus civilization. In the absence of any direct source the author has attempted to reconstruct its picture by presenting original photographs captured exclusively for this book, incorporating legends, folklore, and languages of the region, and her own understanding of the ancient signs and symbols which she researched on during her seven years of research at the Cornell University, New York. The book is meant for general readers and the scholars and students, and is a must read for an international audience as well. Pakistan is on the center stage of global politics and the world is keen to know it beyond its typical day-to-day reporting.
