Hi Herman, Actually, if you read Indian history, there are several reasons for the Anglo features. If you look at Indians, you will find a gradual darkening of skin color the farther south you go. The main reason for the lighter skin color up north are the invasions into India that started back in 500 BCE, not to mention Alexander's attempted invasion - there are tribes in present-day Pakistan

LOL!!! (I agree - my post must sound like the general who said that India must send their Navy to deal with the Indo-Pak war of 1965) NIOT is (seriously) asked to verify many land digs in India because their funding allows their equipment to be the best - which is why you get Dr. Bardrinaryan posting on this site. The Indian Govt is pouring more money into Ocean-Archeology than others - in it

The question is, have they dated any of the artifacts proven to be in-situ at the site? The article does not mention the participation of NIOT or the National Archeological Institute, which makes me a little skeptical of the conclusions. That is not to say that they are local folks making projections to support traditional beliefs. However, until some more rigorous evidence is presented, it is

To my naked eye looking at the screen it seems like a combination of Sanskrit (Devnagari) and Tamil (Dravidian) lettering. Sinhala (from the above posts) but a formal, cursive form is a good guess, since both Tamil and Sanskrit alphabets went to form Sinhala. Deep

While I am not the expert, my understanding is that there are significant similarities between what Dr. Badrinaryan has found and other cities (presumably of later origin) of the Indus Valley culture (now called the Sindhu-Sarasvati culture by some.) Sarasvati, the river that flowed from the Himalayas that this culture flourished on the banks of, completely dried up by 1900 BCE per satellite imag

No. We do not all believe that we came out of Africa. We speak our minds, and we do not have a collective agenda. We discuss, we speak. We sit on the couch of an issue long enough that it is threadbare... If that is not good enough, then well ... it is not good enough for your standards... Deep

Out of Africa? Is that the root question? Or was that an example of the questions you speak of? I do not understand your quest, or the question. We try answer as many questions as we can from our collective knowledge ... in healthy debate. I can provide links to most questions if you pose them - as can the mods - if you ask a specific question. We debate about issues and draw our own conclus

I agree with DebraEgypt - it had to me Manu, not Meru (the only Meru I know of is Mt. Meru, a mountain in the Himalayas, the abode of Shiva in Hindu Mythology.) I have never heard of Baisbasbata - and I grew up in a Hindu family. Manu was indeed a survivor of a great flood, and the first lawgiver - as per Hindu mythology. Are you sure it wasn't Vishvamitra (the B and V being interchangeable

Quote: On the basis that the Mahabharata is evidence of nuclear war (albeit only when you read certain translations ;) ) then surely Greek Mythology - which was written down before the Mahabharata - is evidence that only a few thousand years ago horses had wings (pegasus) and women had snakes for hair and turned people into stone (gorgon).

Did you ever read about Robert Oppenheimer and his reaction to the first atomic test? "Robert Oppenheimer and Dr. Charles Winter Woods stood there in silence for a few minutes, each man lost in his own thoughts as they surveyed the damage and devastation across the street from them. To Oppenheimer it looked like a bombed out landscape. It looked as if the war had already started and this b

Great Comments, folks , and thanks for the input. How many of you have read the Mahabharata? There is much, much more than is covered including spirituality and morality, not just how to build a flying object... The complexities in the epic cannot be the result of pure imagination - there are too many hands-on guides. Deep

From your post, it sounds like a lot of speculation with a few facts thrown in where it bolsters your speculation. And you seem to selectively use religious texts that support your theory - does that mean the rest of them are fiction? Most of what you have "revealed" is already known and been debated many times over. If you really have a unifying theory, then we need to hear it. I am

What I find interesting is the word "Sukhavati". It is a Sanskrit word. It means "Land of Happiness and Peace" "Sukha" means Happiness and the connotation presumes a peaceful happiness. A family living in "Sukha" alludes to a family living in a peaceful, joyous harmony where happiness lies in small things. "Vati" literally means "where it r

Hindu-Kush means "Kill Hindu" or more accurately "Stab Hindu" in pashtun, the language of the locals. The mountain range was named by the Muslim invaders in the early part of the last millenium.

Quote: "It is said that Kumera was a son of Rama, and the Bible lists the father of Rama as Kush, so it seems that Kushites had much to do with the settlement of India. The Gulf of Kutch (Kush) of northwest India, where are submerged Harappan buildings and artifacts, and the Hindu-Kush mountains in the region, indicate this ancient influence of Kush (Krishna?) in the region.

I have to question your sources on that claim - that the Rama empire succumbed to the sea. Where did you find this? The Ramayana is quite clear on the long list of Rama's descendants, and how the empire flourished long after Rama. Kuvera was not a son of Rama - he was a completely different character in Indian mythology that was reputed to be a designer and architect of supernatural abilities.

Where did you get the information that Kumera was the son of Rama, or that his empire was in the Kutch region? (The closest name in Indian mythology is Kuvera, the Architect of the Gods.) According to the Ramayana, he had twin sons, by the names of Lava and Kusha. His father's name was Dasaratha. His capital was Ayodhya, located in the Gangetic plain, in northeast, not northwest, India - on the

I know the legend, Ramayana. That's why I was curious, Claudia ... why that name? Vishwamitra cursed her, and Rama redeemed her - men cursing women to turn to stone, and redeeming them - after a long time... Ahalya is a name that speaks of penance, and rebirth. It intrigued me... Deep

Welcome to the discussions! Manjri - means a bower - in sanskrit - I can understand. Ahalya - is of Vishwamitra fame - with a touch by Rama that redeemed - I am truly curious about the name... Deep

It is difficult to rate this find. Adam's Bridge is a string of shoals between India and Sri Lanka. Most research says it is natural, yet legends say that it is man-made. Ramayana says that Rama built a bridge to rescue his queen (not the bridge, but a bridge.) No man-made structures have been found undersea - but - what would a man-made structure from 7000-3000 BC be today - stones and dead wo
