No, but you know, that would be an interesting idea. And it would
be easy too, since almost nothing is understood about Harappan language.
Based on the minute amount of material that's been transliterated, the
consensus of the small group of people working on it is that it's related
to the Dravidian languages of southern India. This is, of course, almost
certainly wrong, but that doesn't stop people -- even when experts --
