The author is quite right in concluding the Harappan (Indus) language to be Sanskritic and the writing to be proto-Brahmi. with the collapse of the Aryan Invasion Theory which is what gave rise to the idea of the Dravidian theory, a close examination of the symbolism of the iconography of the seals-- svasti sign, om sign, yogic postures and the like show the unmistakable influence of Vedic thought on the Harappans. So there is no reason to look for any language unrelated to Vedic Sanskrit like the hypothetical and possibly never-existing proto-Dravidian.
