Knowledge about the creation of human being, its first place of settlement and subsequent geographical migratory patterns are controversial. Scientific and religious scholars commonly agree on the genesis of life in the sea water. In past, the entire globe had been submerged under the sea water multiple number of times. This used to be followed by re-immerging of earth with evolutions in biologic forms and creation of new human generations, settlements and migrations. Indus valley is a crucial place from migratory patterns of population, coming from other places around the world which got settled here and vice versa. We hypothesize that there is a genetic-link between inhabitants of many global areas with those of Indus Valley and vice versa. This aspect helps to understand that races at global level share genealogies. The ultimate genetic makeup of individuals would be subjected to environmental and local geographical factors to generate the further genetic traits of some kind. Indus valley civilization had contributed towards beneficial genetic traits. The Arians (civilized) are mistaken for belonging to north but they have actual origin from the Indus Valley. In fact, this population first started to migrate from Indus Valley northwards in globe, stayed there for multiple millenniums and on re-migrating back to the Indus Valley got labeled as Arians. The Mirjats of Sindh possess their migrated version called Gypsies presently settled in Europe etc. Subcontinent had given clans to Arabian areas and got some of them back to Sindh in historical past. There is an admixture of genealogy from multiple European Races and other global areas to Indus region and vice versa. Marital pattern had been subjected not only to the influence of religion but also to the social and economic status and physical look. Such relations result in exchange of genetic material among far-flung areas and countries around the world.

One of the ways to understand the global genetic relations is to read the script of ancient languages. It is highly imperative that the scriptures obtained from ruins of Mohen-jo-Daro etc. should be read as done elsewhere in the world to explore linkages of civilizations and genealogies at global level. The findings of such linkage can be subjected to further analysis and confirmation by the scientific methods by using DNA based genetic linkage studies for various world nations. Such studies will reduce international conflicts and make the world a better global home.
