“Gratified with him, the holy one then showed Utanka that eternal Vaishnava form which Dhananjaya of great intelligence had seen. Utanka beheld the high-souled Vasudeva of universal form, endued with mighty-arms. The effulgence of that form was like that of a blazing fire or a thousand suns. It stood before him filling all space. It had faces on every side. Behold the high and wonderful Vaishnava form of Vishnu."
So no, there was no fallout, rats ate away at these people.
“The streets swarmed with rats and mice; earthen pots showed cracks or broken from no apparent cause. At night, the rats and mice ate away the hair and nails of slumbering men.” -

as recorded in the Mahabharata
Considering the age and engineering complexity of the pyramid(s), and considering findings such as the antikythera mechanism, I certainly would not rule-out the possibility that nuclear (or even more advanced) technology was previously harnessed and utilized in our ancient and mysterious past.

They have talked about this in the marinara.. And the bagavatita.. (Spelling?) sorry I'm posting from my phone.
Graham Hancock has stated this in the past. And have others.

The Indus Valley Civilization existed from ~ 3500 BPE until roughly 1500 BPE
For a nuclear war to have ended the IVC it would have had to have happened at the end of that civilization.
The IVC had 3 periods, Early, Middle and Late. The bodies claimed to have been holding hands and killed in an instant have been dated to different time periods. Some from the Early stages of IVC and some from the Late IVC. The quality of preservation isn't attributable to radioactivity, it is an environmental nature, just like in Egypt, the area was extremely hot and dry with temperatures as high as 128'F.
There were only 37 bodies found, hardly representative of a large scale civilization and again, these people died thousands of years apart, not simultaneously.
Contrary to fringe or pseudoscience web pages, these bodies were not located in the streets, on sidewalks or anywhere else but in an actual grave. That's right. All of those people had been buried. Just to clarify one point, technically some of the bodies from the late period appear to have been buried on or above a street BUT that is because they were from the Late Period and new buildings and roadways had been built on top of the remains of the Early period. These people were buried during the late period and the street beneath them was from the early period. Once again...they were buried ABOVE a road from well over 1000 years prior to their births.
Likewise, the claimed radiation is nonexistent. It isn't in any of the field notes from the original excavations from 1922-1931 nor is it in any later notes. It is completely made up. If anyone feels I am wrong, please show me a citation that demonstrates this to be real radioactivity.
Finally, the likely reason that sites like Mohenjo Daro were abandoned had nothing at all to do with nuclear war or any warfare at all. The Indus River changed its course enough over the 2000 years the IVC thrived until the city was no longer near a source of water. Thus they were forced to move, in this case to the Ganges.
