Background

Rebirth of River Sarasvati is ongoing and will reach Gujarat soon. Recent research perspectives from a number of disciplines have pointed to the importance of River Sarasvati as the fountain-head of Hindu civilization. The fact that the Vedas thrived on the banks of the River Saraswati is proved by the words of the Vedas, according to many Vedic scholars. It looks that many abiding Hindu traditions evolved from the Vedic foundations — including svastika.
