    Trade and markets are the twin engines that lead to the creation and growth of not only the empires, but also the great civilizations from the times immemorial. Having firm faith in the growth of markets for economic development, we decided to explore whether trade and markets played a major role in the ancient times, too. And what better paradigm could we have chosen than almost the ten millennia old lost ancient Indian civilization of Harappa or the Indus Valley?
