- Radiation still so intense, the area is highly dangerous
- A heavy layer of radioactive ash in Rajasthan, India,
covers a three-square mile area, ten miles west of Jodhpur. Scientists
are investigating the site, where a housing development was being built.
- For some time it has been established that there is a
very high rate of birth defects and cancer in the area under construction.
The levels of radiation there have registered so high on investigators'
gauges that the Indian government has now cordoned off the region. Scientists
have unearthed an ancient city where evidence shows an atomic blast dating
back thousands of years, from 8,000 to 12,000 years, destroyed most of
the buildings and probably a half-million people. One researcher estimates
that the nuclear bomb used was about the size of the ones dropped on Japan
- The Mahabharata clearly describes a catastrophic blast
that rocked the continent. "A single projectile charged with all the
power in the Universe...An incandescent column of smoke and flame as bright
as 10,000 suns, rose in all its splendor...it was an unknown weapon, an
iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes
an entire race.
- "The corpses were so burned as to be unrecognizable.
Their hair and nails fell out, pottery broke without any apparent cause,
and the birds turned white.
- "After a few hours, all foodstuffs were infected.
To escape from this fire, the soldiers threw themselves into the river."
- Historian Kisari Mohan Ganguli says that Indian sacred
writings are full of such descriptions, which sound like an atomic blast
as experienced in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He says references mention fighting
sky chariots and final weapons. An ancient battle is described in the Drona
Parva, a section of the Mahabharata. "The passage tells of combat
where explosions of final weapons decimate entire armies, causing crowds
of warriors with steeds and elephants and weapons to be carried away as
if they were dry leaves of trees," says Ganguli.
- "Instead of mushroom clouds, the writer describes
a perpendicular explosion with its billowing smoke clouds as consecutive
openings of giant parasols. There are comments about the contamination
of food and people's hair falling out."
- Archeologist Francis Taylor says that etchings in some
nearby temples he has managed to translate suggest that they prayed to
be spared from the great light that was coming to lay ruin to the city.
"It's so mid-boggling to imagine that some civilization had nuclear
technology before we did. The radioactive ash adds credibility to the ancient
Indian records that describe atomic warfare."
- Construction has halted while the five member team conducts
the investigation. The foreman of the project is Lee Hundley, who pioneered
the investigation after the high level of radiation was discovered.
