Sindhu Ghati Sabhyata : Ek Parichay is a Hindi version of An Introduction To Indus Valley Civilization which is among the bestsellers at the National Museum. Co-authored by Dr. Sanjib Kumar Singh (Head Publication Department, National Museum) and Dr Gunjan Srivastava(Deputy Superintending Archaeologist, ASI) and Mr Rajesh Kumar( Hindi Translator, National Museum), this book throws light on the splendour of the Indus Valley Civilization.
