Plough symbol- triangulam

Any reader of this website please be informed that statements and explanations pertaining to "Calendar Theory" and "Jyotish Vedanga" have become obsolete and wrong. The corrected version is available in the second website. Follow the link for second website --https://sites.google.com/site/indusharappacivilization/home.
Whereas the "Necropolis Theory" explaining the nature of Indus excavation sites, stands on it's own legs firm to the ground. Only, passing of time will bring forth the truth. I am maintaining this website just to show the thought process through which the final success was obtained.

Babylonian star catalogues
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Babylonian astronomy collated earlier observations and divinations into sets of Babylonian star catalogues, during and after the Kassite rule over Babylonia. These star catalogues, written in cuneiform script, contained lists of constellations, individual stars, and planets. The constellations were probably collected from various other sources, the earliest catalogue, Three Stars Each mentions stars of Akkad, of Amurru, of Elam and others.

Various sources have theorized a Sumerian origin for these Babylonian constellations[1], but an Elamite origin have also been proposed[2]. A connection to the star symbology of Kassite kudurru border stones have also been claimed, but whether such kudurrus really represented constellations and astronomical information aside for the use of the symbols remains unclear.

Star catalogues after Three Stars Each include the MUL.APIN list named after the first Babylonian constellation MULAPIN, "the Plough", which is the current Triangulum Gamma Andromedae. It lists, among others, 17 or 18 constellations in the zodiac. Later catalogues reduces the zodiacal set of constellations to 12, which were borrowed by the Egyptians and the Greeks, still surviving among the modern constellations. constellation plus

Balram and his weapon of plough

I was thinking about Balrama and Krishna fighting Jarachand (King of Magath- Bihar). In the TV serial (story of Krishna = Bhagawatham) they are showing that Balrama is fighting his opponents with a plough. How illogical is it? Yet it is part of our mythology, our ancestor never felt any contradiction, it was perfect for them. Because the ancient calendar priests know exactly, what it meant? But , only later day novices could not understand the simile.

Now see the relationship between plough and Balrama:

The Pleiades constellation is variously described as Osiris on marsh of Nile river, Moses drawn out river --( river is the ecliptic pathway -- Hindus call it as celestial river Saraswathi).
In fact the first story to come out with a plot where a baby is drawn out of river is Sargon story. Later the same story is repeated in Karna, Moses, Osiris (Egypt) and God Karthikeya (India) in this list we should also add Hercules and Krishna. All indicate the same constellation Pleiades.

Now , how is Pleiades constellation is related to Balrama, refer to sky map and you will see that Aries constellation (Ram) is hovering over Pleiades like a snake . that is the reason Balrama is the avathar of Aadhi Seshan . Now , see the link between Balrama  and plough . This plough constellation is on the shoulder of Balrama (Ram) in the sky map also.

On the similar lines , the relationship between snake and Pharaohs also should be noted. Pharaohs are equivalent of Indian Kalan. Here the picture of Kalan should be visualised. In the picture of Kalan the Ram constellation looks like  snake below the crown rimming the bottom line of the crown of Pharaoh.

now --where is the plough symbol in Indus seal ---that should be added here
