    Also,
    "According to Kochhar there were three waves of Indo-Aryan immigration that occurred after the mature Harappan phase:
    1. the "Murghamu" (Bactria-Margiana Culture) related people who entered Baluchistan at Pirak, Mehrgarh south cemetery, and other places, and later merged with the post-urban Harappans during the late Harappans Jhukar phase (2000-1800 BCE);
    2. the Swat IV that co-founded the Harappan Cemetery H phase in Punjab (2000-1800 BCE);
    3. and the Rigvedic Indo-Aryans of Swat V that later absorbed the Cemetery H people and gave rise to the Painted Grey Ware culture(PGW) (to 1400 BCE)."

    "About 1800 BC, there is a major cultural change in the Swat Valley with the emergence of the Gandhara grave culture. With its introduction of new ceramics, new burial rites, and the horse, the Gandhara grave culture is a major candidate for early Indo-Aryan presence. The two new burial rites—flexed inhumation in a pit and cremation burial in an urn—were, according to early Vedic literature, both practiced in early Indo-Aryan society. Horse-trappings indicate the importance of the horse to the economy of the Gandharan grave culture. Two horse burials indicate the importance of the horse in other respects. Horse burial is a custom that Gandharan grave culture has in common with Andronovo, though not within the distinctive timber-frame graves of the steppe."

    Because Dravdian have no roots in IVC, Ganga region is completely different than Indus region historically, only ganga people in Indus areas are massalis, marasis, chooray and brahui, all somewhat recent immigrants.
