There are several beliefs among locals in these villages. While few worship the paintings, others narrate stories they have heard from ancestors about "rohela people" — the small sized ones — who used to land from sky in a round shaped flying object and take away one or two persons of village who never returned.
From the site annotating the photos and I would guess that's why they are making the jump to these possibly being depictions of said "aliens". I guess the fascinating thing is that, they do bare a passing resemblance to the classic "grey" type "aliens" and might therefore suggest their image is deeply ingrained in our psyches. The local legend has a definite echo in the Western European tradition of the "little people from under the hill" who take people and that, whilst they are away, time passes totally differently for them and the world they originally came from.
Thankfully, we are beginning to re-evaluate many of these old legends with a slightly less hackneyed eye than previous dogmatic and elitist generations, who treated everything non western as "childish, inferior and an affront to their narrow minded views".
No study of India is complete without understanding the Vedas, the bedrock of the country’s cultural life. ‘Veda’ in Sanskrit means knowledge which it provides to lead a wholesome life sans any conflict or confusion. Interestingly, the topics covered by the Vedas are not bound by narrow parameters like time, region or religion. They are eternal and their relevance transcends all such barriers. What makes them unique is that they mandate no allegiance to any prophet or scriptures and were handed down from generation to generation by mere word of mouth.
Veda Vyasa, the great sage is credited with the collation of existing Vedic mantras and organizing them into the four groups namely the Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharva.
