had a treasure trove of
hitech warfare technology that even the 'mighty West' does not possess.
The Brahmastra and
used in the pre-Mahabharata period are nothing but the earlier versions of
today's nuclear weapons and spacecraft.'
this feeling that one would get after listening to a lecture on 'High Technology
in Ancient Sanskrit Literature' by Mr. C. S. R. Prabhu,
senior scientist, NIC, Hyderabad, on Thursday as part of the three- day
Indo-Nepal Sanskrit Conference, currently underway at the Rashtriya Sanskrit
Prabhu, quoting extensively from ancient texts, stressed that the
pre-Mahabharata period was an age of high technology, which was ignored in the
Medieval period due to reasons not known.
quoted from the texts of a great scholar, Subbaraya Sastry, who, in a state of
yogic trance, is said to have orally dictated the spacecraft technology in a
period somewhere between 1875 and 1919, which was recorded by his disciples. The
text, a copy of which is still in
's Royal Library, contained technical details on assembling, fabricating and
erecting a spacecraft, the metals, semi-conductors, advanced alloys used and
other minute aeronautical information. Though quite difficult to be believed on
the face of it, the fact that this technology did not exist anywhere in the
world - not even in
- in the mentioned period, makes it hard for one to disbelieve.
technical information given in Sastry's texts was as minute, precise and clear,
as if it were a 'Make your own spacecraft' or a 'Spacecraft technology in 30
days' except for the Sanskrit language used, which was very much archaic and
obsolete, Mr. Prabhu said. On a tip on making an alloy, the text said 'Krishnaseesam
Chanjanikam Vajrathundam samamsathaha' from which the real meaning of 'Vajrathundam'
(used in that context), could not be found in any contemporary Sanskrit
dictionary. ''After a great amount of interaction with ayurvedic specialists and
Swamijis with intuitive interpretations, it turned out to be the cactus plant,''
further strengthen his claim, he said there were wall paintings in some forts in
Rajasthan depicting the use of rockets in Mughal warfare and even by Tipu Sultan
. Another interesting fact he gave was that the spacecraft could become
invisible on its own. The lead alloy (Thamogarbha loha) used in making the body
of the spacecraft would absorb light around it in a photo chemical reaction that
would make it disappear.
testing the Krishna seesa metal mentioned in the formula in the laboratory of
Birla Institute of Science,
, Mr. Prabhu found the metal absorbing 78 per cent of laser light, which means,
any other light could be easily absorbed, giving ample proof that there existed
a technology to make things invisible. Also the use of an alloy of copper, zinc
and lead made the spacecraft's body resist corrosion by 1000 times over that of
the current levels. Using Ararakamra material for the axle and wheels had made
it possible for taking 'U' turns and serpentine movements.
astonishing fact is that the Ararakamra metal was an alloy of copper, zinc, lead
and iron, the combination of which is impossible, according to modern
metallurgy. Technically, the ''Young's modulus'' of this metal is said to be
higher than that of steel, making it stronger. As the spacecraft had to be
capable of resisting high temperature, on re- entering our atmosphere from the
outer space, its body was made with a metal called 'Raja Loha'. Its special
feature was that apart from resisting heat, it converted light from lightnings
into energy. To crosscheck all these details, there were no furnaces available
to melt metals at a high temperature of 2500 degrees celcius, Mr. Prabhu
hitch came into his research in the form of the 'energy' used. 'Though the texts
explained that the spacecraft was propelled by 'Sourasakthi', modern solar
technology does not generate so much power to drag a rocket', he pointed out.
Later he found out to his bewilderment that it was a kind of 'nuclear power'
that was used in those days. 'The solar power, when coupled with gamma rays
produced nuclear energy that had the power to propel a rocket', Mr. Prabhu
spoke on 'Tripura Vimana' that was used to travel in space, water and on land,
by using the metal 'Trinetra loha'. Mr. Prabhu said he had submitted the model
and some more information on the 'super metal' to the Indian Metal Society
Conference and further claimed that the advisor to the government on scientific
affairs Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam too had asked him to bring the design of the
committee which was appointed by Indian Institute of Science to investigate into
it, declared Sastry's texts as 'fraud', but Mr. Prabhu reasons that the
descriptions mentioned in the ancient texts were perhaps too advanced to
believe, making the committee to hastily come to the conclusion. He wanted a
national level effort to prove that the so called 'myths' were in fact,
scientific formulae on advanced technology. He said he had proposed a project
called 'Bharadwaja Institute of Vedic Science and Technology', the objective of
which was to derive, decipher and reproduce advanced methodologies and processes
from Vedic and post-Vedic Sanskrit texts, for which he sought government's

Symbols Like Peruvian Signs Found on Gujarat Hillside
Gujarat, India. August 6, 2006: Geologists have discovered a striking
archaeological feature on a hillock in the Kutch district of the western Indian
state of Gujarat. This feature is shaped like the Roman numeral VI. Each arm of
this feature is a trench that is about two meters wide, two meters deep and more
than 100 meters long. The feature has evoked the curiosity of archaeologists
because such signs have mostly been observed so far in Peru. The team, led by Dr
RV Karanth, a former professor of geology at the Maharaja Sayajirao University
in Vadodara, Gujarat, has been involved in a palaeoseismological study of the
Kutch region for the past 11 years Palaeoseismology involves the study of
sediments, landforms and other geological evidence of past earthquakes to
unravel their history and determine the nature and occurrence of present-day
earthquakes. This feature was discovered at a hillock 3km from the sleepy oasis
township of Khavda, which is also known as the gateway to the Rann of Kutch, an
extensive salt marsh of western India and southeast Pakistan between the Gulf of
Kutch and the Indus river delta.
Dr. Karanth says such trenches have not been noticed elsewhere in the region.
Archaeologists, he says, can now pursue further research. Geometric lines and
animal shapes etched into the desert plain by people of the Nazca
civilisation (AD 1-700) of Peru are well known. "But such signs
on hill-slopes have not been reported from Peru," says Dr. Karanth. He says
that one of the prominent explanations given for the Peruvian features is that
they may have been constructed to make astronomical observations and
calculations. "The Tropic of Cancer passes through
Kutch. So if this structure is man-made, it is likely that the slope of the
hillock was utilized for making certain astronomical calculations in the
past," explains the geologist. Interestingly, there are numerous
indications to suggest that Harappans were well-versed in astronomy. The
straight streets of that time were oriented in the cardinal directions - east,
west, north and south. Linkages between ancient Harappan scripts and latter
Vedic texts also suggest that Harappan priest-astronomers tracked the progress
of various planets and mapped the sky. Dr. Karanth has also discovered ruins of
a fort-wall, houses, storage tank and a temple on the hilltop.

Oppenheimer and Atom bomb
in modern times
seven years after the first successful atom bomb blast in New Mexico,
Oppenheimer (1904-1967) Scientist, philosopher, bohemian, and radical. A
theoretical physicist and the Supervising Scientist of the
Manhattan Project, who
was familiar with ancient Sanskrit literature, was giving a lecture at Rochester
University. During the question and answer period a student asked a question to
which Oppenheimer gave a strangely qualified answer:
Student: Was the bomb exploded at Alamogordo during the Manhattan Project the first one to
Dr. Oppenheimer: "Well -- yes. In modern times, of course.
Charles Berlitz goes on to quote a number of passages from the Mahabharata that describe the
impact of a weapon that I suspect must be the brahmaastra, although he neither names
the weapon nor cites those sections of the text from which his quotations are drawn (he
lists Protap Chandra Roy's translation of 1889 in his bibliography):...a single projectile
Charged with all the power of the Universe.
An incandescent column of smoke and flame As bright as ten thousand Suns Rose in all its
splendor......it was an unknown weapon, An iron thunderbolt, A gigantic messenger of
death, Which reduced to ashes. The Entire race of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas....the
corpses were so burned As to be unrecognizable. Their hair and nails fell out; Pottery
broke without apparent cause, And the birds turned white. After a few hours all foodstuffs
were infected......To escape from this fire. The soldiers threw themselves in streams to
wash themselves and their equipment...
One is reminded of the yet
unknown final effect of a super-bomb when we read in the
...So powerful that it could
The earth in an instant -
A great soaring sound in smoke and flames...
And on it sits Death...

The Discovery of Dwaraka
Discovered in 1981, the
well-fortified township of Dwaraka extended more than half a mile from the shore and was
built in six sectors along the banks of a river before it became submerged.
The findings are of immense cultural and religious importance to India.
Among the objects unearthed that proved Dwarka's connection with the Mahabharata epic was
a sea engraved with the image of a three-headed animal. The epic mentions such a seal given
to the citizens of Dwarka as a proof of identity when the city was threatened by
King Jarasandha of the powerful Magadh kingdom (now Bihar). The foundation of
boulders on which the city's walls were erected proves that the land was reclaimed from
the sea about 3,600 years ago. The epic has references to such reclamation activity at
Dwarka. Seven islands mentioned in it were also discovered submerged in the Arabian Sea.
Why is that the
rediscovery of Dwaraka has not attracted the same degree of attention in the
West, as that of ancient Troy by Heinrich Schliemann?
