Ancient City Discovered in India
Sisupalgarh, India near Bhubaneswar - Ancient City Discovered in India - BBC News
RK Mohanty of the department of archaeology, Deccan College, Pune, who is one of the two researchers involved in the excavations.
"The significance of this ancient city becomes clear when one bears in mind the fact that the population of classical Athens was barely 10,000," he
Mr Mohanty, along with Monica Smith of the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology, University of California, has been carrying out limited excavations at the
site every year since 2005 with the permission of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).
The latest round of excavations ended last Monday and the new discoveries have been covered with special plastic material and earth to preserve them
before further digging is taken up in subsequent years.
The first excavations at the site were carried out by Prof BB Lal as far back as in 1948.

Rajasthan, India near Jodhpur - Irradiated By Nuclear Blast 8,000 Years Ago - Sacred Texts
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 in
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
"After a few hours, all foodstuffs were infected. To escape from this fire, the soldiers threw themselves into the river."
Description from the Mahabharata
Gurkha, flying a swift and powerful vimana hurled a single projectile
Charged with all the power of the Universe.
An incandescent column of smoke and flame
As bright as the thousand suns
Rose in all its splendour...
a perpendicular explosion
with its billowing smoke clouds...
...the cloud of smoke
rising after its first explosion
formed into expanding round circles
like the opening of giant parasols...
..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.
The 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.

Dwaraka: Sri Krishna's City - legendary Dwaraka of Sri Krishna
The Remains of Dwaraka:
"The Hindu" --January 19, 1987
Sir,--This refers to the report “Dwaraka expedition finds more remains” reported from Panaji (The Hindu, Jan.1) about the wonders revealed by
the fifth archaeological under water excavation recently.
More than a decade back, a very old, small temple within a big temple, believed to be the original “Krishna temple” was unearthed 20 to 30 feet
deep, not far off from the location of the present one, by the first surface excavation of the Archaeological Department.
Again, in early 1985, the fourth under-water excavation discovered two submerged sea walls, 20 to 30 feet below the sea-bed a few metres
apart—also reported in The Hindu, the same year (1985), how the old Dwaraka Port, once the “gateway” of ancient India, was submerged four to
five thousand years ago, was scientifically explained by Mr. C.S. Mahadevan of Madras vide The Hindu, February 21, 1985. Dwaraka was partially
submerged according to him in 3031 B.C..
Later in 2700 BC, not only the remaining portion of Dwaraka but even the remaining portion of Lanka, Ravana’s kingdom got submerged in a cataclysm.
This explanation is supported by the scientific reasons advanced by him. Due to the tilting of the axis of the earth, generally some of the islands
throughout the world submerged.
The submerging of islands is more near the equator up to 30’ North or South latitude. So what happened in 3031 BC and 2700 BC and earlier in 12000
BC was due to this tilting of the earth.
This revelation by Mr. Mahadevan’s letter (The Hindu, Feb. 21, 1985) made interesting reading about Dwaraka once ruled by Lord Krishna who was born
on July 26, 3112 BC according to him.

Sorry that's all I have right now... India is on my 'work to be done' shelf...
But this ought to give the Phageites a workout
So Phage, you seem to 'indicate' you have done research on this... why not share that instead of being top dog debunker all the time
