I've seen tv footage of underwater structures off the coast of Japan. Apparently the idea that there may have been ancient somewhat advanced eastern civilizations before any that we know of in the west has some people upset as I've read on the following website.
Just accepting the evidence that man had somewhat advanced civilizations over 10,000 years ago when ocean levels were lower would cause a rewrite of the history books. Of course I believe the evidence would have to be falling over in your face for some to change their opinions.
The structures off the coast of Japan look manmade to me. That area of the ground was last above water over 10,000 years ago from all reports I've heard.

Supposedly, the first homo sapien sapien, indistinguishable from modern man, lived around 250 000 years ago. In the last 10 000 years we have gone from stone age to space age. There is plenty of time for many previous ones. In 10 000 years, how many existing manmade structures will still remain? And if there was a large extinction level size impact event, what would survive? I would say the best bet would be the great pyramid. Clearly, skyscrapers are fragile, and even something as massive as the three gorges dam could very possibly be destroyed by quakes, and or tidal waves.
Geneticists report that our dna shows evidence of at least one instance of being severely 'pinched' in the past. The lack of variance suggests that we were reduced to a very small number of people sometime in our past.
There may not be evidence that everyone would accept that proves any past high tech., but there is enough for me. In my world, that is all I am concerned with anyway. Others must make their own calls.

Ancient Civilizations did exist in India. They are certainly the oldest to date.
Here are a few of the sites that I found:
1) Dwaraka - The hometown of Krishna:
2) A bridge from India to Sri Lanka has been discovered. Rama built this bridge to lead his army to get Sita who was abducted by Ravana who lived in Lanka.

Is this genuine about the irradiated skeletons that has radiation levels on par with bodies in Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
In the 1920s, 39 (37 or 38 according to some sources) skeletons - many incomplete - were found, laying in a manner suggesting they'd met violent deaths. I think later forensic studies indicated knife wounds?
Radioactive testing had not come into use yet by the time of those excavations. That was not until after the bombing of Hiroshima. The radiation content was found later and reported by Russian archeologists in the mid 1960s. Before Hiroshima we didn't have a full frame of referrence for what kind of disaster could cause the manner of destruction found at Mohenjo-Daro. Though still you would think even before the (re?)advent of the atomic bomb that researchers could have concieved a better theory than knife-wielding invaders. You're not going to slaughter people near-instantly right where they stand or fuse matter into crystal by using a knife.

That verse from the Mahabharata that is quoted again and again is completely false. At no point in the Mahabharata has this verse been mentioned. That verse is a blatant misinterpretation of someone who has disregarded facts and woven his own little fantasy. Im guessing its Charles Berlitz. What baffles me is that Discovery telecasts every UFO/Mysterious lost civ shows and quotes that verse without even bothering to find out if that verse is actually mentioned in the epic. By no means does this mean that super weapons and its atomic like effects are not mentioned.Sure they are and they are more mentioned in the Ramayana than the Mahabharata. There are translations of both the epics in English and i suggest a good read.
