Economic Accomplishments: Most people in ancient India, as in other parts of Asia and Europe at this time, were farmers. In India, farmers mainly grew wheat and rice, and cotton for cloth. From the Harappan period on, Indian people were selling gold to West Asia, using their carefully made weights to weigh the gold out. Traders in India also sold a lot of Indian things to both China and West Asia; early on it was mainly medicine, but also spices like cinnamon and black peppers.
