Guru Nanak Dev did not wish to establish a new religion. He organised his followers into a community. He set up rules for congregational worship (sangat) involving collective recitation. He appointed his disciple Angad as the preceptor (guru) after him. After the death of Guru Nanak Dev, his followers consolidated their own practices and distinguished themselves from both Hindus and Muslims. The practice of selecting Guru was followed for nearly 200 years by his followers.

Script of the Harappan civilization: (i) Till date we have not been able to decipher Harappan script. Although we are sure that it was not alphabetical (where each sign stands for a vowel or a consonant) as there are just too many signs-somewhere between 375 and 400. (ii) The script was written from right to left. We know this because some seals show a wider spacing on the right and cramping on the left, as if the engraver began working from the right and then ran out of space. (iii) The Indus Script has both word signs and symbols with phonetic value. This view is based on the fact that roughly 400 signs have been identified, which makes it unlikely that the Indus Script was solely phonetic.

Planned City: Harappa as a planned urban centre. It had two parts. One part of the city was small. It was built on a higher place.The second part was comparatively large. It was built on a lower place. The first part was designed as citadel and the second part was as lower town. The citadel owed its height to the fact that it was built on mud brick platforms. It had walls on all sides and these walls were separated from the lower town. Lower Town: It was also a walled town. Most of the buildings were built on platforms. In fact, these platforms were considered as foundation stones. It required huge quantity of labour force to build these platforms. It is obvious that settlement was first planned and then implemented as per the building plan. Quality of sun-dried bricks or baked bricks also prove the concept of planning. All the bricks were of standard ratio. The length and width was four times and twice the height of the bricks respectively. These bricks were used in the settlements of the Harappan Civilisation. Drainage System: The drainage system was well planned. All the roads and streets were laid out on a grid pattern. They intersected one another at the right angles. It seems that streets featuring drains were laid out first and houses were built thereafter along with them. To make the flow of domestic water, every house had at least one wall along the street. The Citadel: There were many buildings in the citadel. These buildings were used for many special public purposes. The Warehouse and the Great Bath were the two most important constructions.

1) The settlements of Harappan cities was devided in to Citadel and Lower city. 2)Citadel was high because it was build at raw soil platform. Those building which was build at citadel had used for special objective. 3) For example Great Granary (That's lower part was build by bricks)and its upper part destroyed perhaps it will be made up of soil. 4) Great Bath ( It was the rectangular water reservoir build in Courtyard .It was surrounded with corridor. It is used for Ritual purpose.
