Sir as this debate about horses in Indus valley civilisation isn't settled and historians have argued both for and against it..
We have had remains of horses in surkodata,which dates to Indus valley civilisation period.Horse ashes and also terracota toys of horse have also been found.
We therefore request you,as an eminent historian of India and public spirited MP ,to intervene on behalf of aspirants and request UPSC,like you did last year, to award marks for both options A and C.and that would do justice to all aspirants .
