Mr. Dial V. Gidwani is the founding President of the “American Institute of Sindhulogy” and is based in Chicago, USA.
The American Institute of Sindhulogy (AIS) is a non-profit, non-religious, non-political institute dedicated to promoting awareness of the Ancient Sindhu (Indus) and Saraswati Civilization in the northern region of ancient India. AIS was formed in 2000, at a time when knowledge and interest in the Indus Culture was just beginning to develop.
In June 2000, the National Geographic Magazine, published a 20-page cover story entitled, “Ancient Civilization Lost to History- Indus.” That article described the growing rediscovery of the great culture that had developed along the River Sindhu, which ultimately became the culture of Ancient India. The article demonstrated the importance of that ancient culture and its relevance to modern society.
Just two months later, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and the Japan Broadcasting Corporation co-sponsored the first major international exhibition of Ancient Indus culture and art in Tokyo, entitled “Ancient Unvoiced Civilization- Indus,” as part of a series on the “Four Great Civilizations of the World.” That exhibit featured more than 800 original artistic and cultural artifacts and continued for four months to tremendous success. (Images can be seen on the link: www.sindhulogy.org.) Both the Indian and Pakistani Governments cooperated extensively in making possible that exhibition concerning both countries’ common ancient heritage.
In the same month, AIS was formed in Chicago to promote awareness of Sindhu-Saraswati Civilization in America and throughout the world. For the past seven years, AIS has been devoted to stimulating public awareness about this great civilization that developed along the Sindhu River. AIS believes that there is a critical need to share information with the general public about the cultural and historical impact that the Indus & Saraswati Civilization has had on the world and on western civilization in particular.
AIS is reaching out to third and fourth generation of Sindhis/Indians who are eager and thirsty for such knowledge about the civilization.
