The information on the “pre-Harappan” city found offshore in India sounds like a possibility, because the article mentions bring up actual artifacts (although they never get around to actually showing them that I can find). So I figured that if this were a real thing, the real scientific journals would have something about it.
I searched the following journals for information, using the Boolean terms "HARAPPAN OR CAMBAY”. Here is what I found:

I reviewed back issues for two years and saw nothing of a pre-Harappan civilization, or any mention of a submerged city in Cambay or anyplace else.
What does this tell you?
I’m still waiting, and, so, I believe, is my esteemed colleague Ms. Byrd.

If it was real, there would be countless other references.

If there had been a real Atlantis, Euripides and Aeschylus and Homer and the others would have been falling all over themselves to write about it.
Actually, there haven't been. There've been some enthusiastic amateurs announcing all sorts of discoveries -- but the real "smoking gun" (which would be pottery, jewelry, and artifacts along with ships and buildings) aren't there

"Atlantis Under Antarctica?
After WW II, scientists started to pay close attention to the issue of a supposedly once-existing civilization in Antarctica. The hypothesis is confirmed by some medieval maps and research of paleogeologists and glaciologists.
Twenty years later, the director of the Istanbul National Museum, Khalil Edkhem, was sorting out a library of the Byzantine emperors in an old palace. He found an ancient map made on gazelle skin. On the map, there were the shores of western and southern Africa, as well as the northern shores of Antarctica.
Khalil could not believe hiseyes: the shores of the Queen Mod Land, to the south of the 70th parallel, was free of ice. An ancient cartographer marked a mountain chain there. The name of the cartographer was known: an admiral of the Ottoman Empire fleet, Piri Reis, who lived in the first half of 16th century."

Geneticists now say that our extreme lack of dna variation is due to at least one major 'pinching off', and more likely two or three.
And the rain erosion on the Sphinx is more supportive evidence.
