It makes perfect sense that they lost their culture over time with the proof of their entrance into the region being largely genetic(R1a1) and linguistic(Indo-Aryan languages).
Also genetically most South Asians have a majority of non-steppe (Sintashta) adna, the vast majority are under 20%

You'd think that dna dilution and cultural merge with pre-existing pops would lead to some form of cultural change since Sintashta, particularly the transition to urban life
