About Kutch, Sindh and Makran

I think, however, that it may be intended for Audumbatira, or Audumbara which Professor Lasseu gives as the name of the people of Katch. They are the Odomboera of Pliny, but there is no trace of this name at the present day. Their capital was at Kotishwara.

To the west of the Lower Indus all the classical writers agree in placing two barbarous races called Arabii, or Arabitae, and Oritae, or Horitae inland. Both of whom were of Indian origin. River Hub divided their kingdoms. Their country was called Langala or Jangala. The Oritae name perhaps derives from Aghor River. Their capital was at Lakura which was known in the 7th Century as 'Sambhurishwara', one of the Shiva's names. Karachi in those day was known as Karkalla.
"Ancient Geography of India" Sir Alexander Cunningham

Udambara is Ficus racemosa (syn. Ficus glomerata Roxb.), a species of plant in the family Moraceae. Popularly known as the cluster fig tree, Indian fig tree or goolar (gular) fig.

The Audumbaras were a north Indian tribal nation east of the Punjab, in the Western Himalaya region. They were the most important tribe of the Himachal, and lived in the lower hills between Sirmaur, Chamba and Yamuna.

Audumbaras were a branch of the Puru tribe. The other branches were Kuninda and Vemakas.

The tribes to the west of River Indus helped Mohmmad Bin Qasim in his fight against Raja Dahir. Therefore, I believe those tribes also must have settled in Kutch.
