Indus Valley Civilization is well known for its trade, drainage system and urban planning. People then would have had great love for hygiene and promoted social empowerment through trade and indeginous crafts. Thus they were also true patriots. In the absence of any statehood, they owed allegiance to social empowerment. Even after nearly 4000 years, Modern India has failed to emulate their principles of hygiene and urban planning. In the Rig Vedic age, people owed their allegiance to their tribe. People of this age were primitive and land was not considered a property till then. In Rig Vedic age, protecting fellow tribesmen during external aggression would have been considered as an act of patriotism.
