Mughal observed that the Early Harappan culture of Kot Diji Sothi Complex in the Indus system evolved exclusively out of the Baluchi chalcolithic cultures. However, it appears that this Kot Diji complex was essentially an indigenously evolving river valley phenomenon. The excavations conducted at Jalilpur, Saraikhola, Banawali, Kalibangan, Rakhigarhi and Kunal have brought to light the sequence of early cultures as it appeared in the Indus system. It shows that there were three phases of colonization of this region before the Harappan culture appeared on the scene.
