Harappan seal in Karanpur, Hanumangarh

Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) in January 2014 unearthed a Harappan seal from Karanpura in the Hanumangarh district of Rajasthan. “The seal consists of two Harappan characters, with a typical unicorn as the motif and a pipal leaf depicted in front of an animal. There is a knob behind the seal,” says VN Prabhakar, superintending archaeologist, who led the ASI. Maintaining that the discovery ‘confirms’ that the site belongs to the mature Harappan period,  the time when the civilization was at its peak (2600 BC to 1900 BC), he said: “A cubicle chert weight was also unearthed in a different house complex. Both the seal and the weight establishes that the people of this area participated in commercial  transactions.” Besides artefacts, house complexes built of mud bricks of early Harappan and mature Harappan periods were also unearthed ( News Source: Hindustan Times). 
भारतीय पुरातत्व सर्वेक्षण (ASI) ने जनवरी 2014 में राजस्थान के हनुमानगढ़ जिले के कर्णपुरा से एक हड़प्पा युग की मुहर प्राप्त की है ।  इस मुहर में गेंडा, एक पीतल का पत्ता एवं दो वर्ण हैं ।  खोजकर्ता के अनुसार यह मुहर हड़प्पा सभ्यता उस समय की है जब हड़प्पा सभ्यता अपने चरम (2600 - 1900 ई.पू. ) पर थी । इस मुहर के अलावा यहाँ से मिटटी के घरका भी पता चलता है ।
