Land Before Time

So many times I wonder how things were before I was born or what was here, where I currently lives, 100 years ago or 1000 years ago.

Barred lands, water, some long lost civilization, a clan of unknowns who vanished from the face of the earth long ago. There can be so many possibilities. The world is full of such places which were like center of the universe in their own time. But now there is nothing on those lands. Nothing except for silence.

Death like silence.

Out of many such places in Pakistan, the cave city of Balochistan is unique. Probably because there are different stories about the origins of this cave city and each one is as mysterious as the last.

    I live in a place where prehistory is everywhere. This is the land of Cro-Magnon man, oth Magdalenian man, etc. There are lots of painted caves, sculpted caves… And while digging your garden, you can still find artifacts like stones that were ued as spear ends for instance to kill mammoths or other wild beasts of these times. A very close friend of mine is from Rwanda, not far from the African rift where Lucy, the pre-pre-historic woman was found.
    Curious that we never thought of these places and these people as dead and silence being death. We find them very close to us and very much alive: we are part of them and they are part of us.
    Thank you for sharing this post: this is so very interesting!

      Wow!! Didn’t knew about that. Did you found any prehistoric artifact in your garden ever?
      If yes, then I’m sure you must have thought about the owner or who built it

      Oh, yes. Lots of artifacts. And older things like animals and flora fossilised. Our old doctor was a “suuperfan” of long lost civilisation and pre-historic things , and pre-pre-historic fossils: he taught me some things when I was a child. He had found a cave with painted and carved walls himself and we visited it. He was regularly going to Africa, joining archaelogical teams.
      I may make a blog about these French caves. I just did not think about them as they are so much part of the landscape and part of us. But before the blog, I shall search for some photos on the net and send them to you! 🙂
