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 1945.
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 was an unknown weapon, an iron
thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes an entire
"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."
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
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.
