Report of Exhibition - 2015

Amazing facts about ancient India
Revealed through-

EXHIBITION ON CULTURAL CONTINUITY FROM RIGVEDA TO ROBTICS
(17-23 September, 2015 in Lalit Kala Akademi)

Hosted by the Institute of Scientific Research on Vedas (I-SERVE)



THEME OF THE EXHIBITION

The latest scientific research reports from astronomy, archaeology, ecology, remote sensing etc. have proved that indigenous civilisation has been developing in India for last 10,000 years. But unfortunately most of our country men are unaware of these scientific evidences.

Through this exhibition we reconstructed the true history of ancient India based on such scientific evidences. Visitors could hear our most beloved former President, late Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, talking about such indigenous development of civilisation, relating the Ramayana references to 7000 BP and extolling the achievements of India in remote past.

First few exhibits provided glimpses of the background and theme of this exhibition. Thereafter on display were the sky views of references in Rigveda, which could be observed around 9000 - 7000 years back. The sky views of references in Ramayana could be seen sequentially around 7000 years back, right from Shri Ram’s date of birth to Hanuman’s meeting Sita Ji in Ashok Vatika. Sky simulations of references in Mahabharata could be observed sequentially around 5000 BP.

Some rare pictures of Ramsetu, with proof that it was at the walkable level around 7000 years back, were on display. Genealogy chart of Suryavanshi rulers, containing names of 63 predecessors and 59 successors of Lord Ram, were displayed along with the outcomes of latest DNA studies, which supported the genealogy as well astronomical dates of Ramayana.

A visitor could have a walk through more than 150 places visited by Shri Ram during his exile. A large number of visitors were attracted towards the picture of Kutumsar caves in Dandak vana; the carbon dating of grains found from there considers these as 7000 years old! 

The Exhibition displayed very exhaustive details of archaeological excavations carried out in Indus, Saraswati and Ganga regions. A close look at the pictures of 9000 to 5000 years old excavated artefacts, including jewellery, utensils, weapons, grains and terracotta etc., revealed their connection with references in Vedas and Epics and also their resemblance with such articles made in modern India, revealing cultural continuity for 9000 years.

The eventful journey of remote past, revealing how and when Ganga became the most venerated mighty river of India in place of Saraswati, was displayed through satellite images taken by ISRO and supported by geological studies. By the time a visitor reached the last exhibit, the true history of ancient India stood revealed as under-

·           There has been a constant development of civilization and culture in Indian sub continent for more than 10000 years.
·           Vedas represent the compilation of knowledge, whereas Ramayana and Mahabharata reveal the true history of ancient India.
·           There was not any Aryan invasion 3500 years back. In fact Vedic Aryans from India have been travelling to other countries of the world since 8000 BP for trade and for sharing knowledge.
·           Vedic culture provided the foundation on which the superstructure of Indian civilization is being laid till date. It is like its nurturer, river Saraswati, whose presence is seen and felt but it has become fashionable to deny its existence.

National Seminar - 2011



I



A two days' national seminar on the subject, "Scientific Dating of Ancient Events before 2000 BC" was held on 30th and 31st July, 2011 in the auditorium of IIMC at Aruna Asaf Ali Marg, New JNU Campus, New Delhi. The Seminar was attended by Sanskrit scholars and astronomers, archaeologists and anthropologists, geologists and ecologists, oceanographers and space scientists, bureaucrats and professionals, professors and academicians as well as other persons from the public and media, who were interested in this subject.

His Excellency Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam (Former President of India) blessed the occasion with his venerated presence as the chief guest and delivered the inaugural address on 30th July. 
(The text of this address is also available at www.abdulkalam.com.
 Hon'ble Justice Sh. Ashok Bhan, Chairman of NCDRC and Sh. J. Sircar, Secretary (Culture) were the guests of Honour. Sh. K. V. Krishnamurthy, Chairman of I-SERVE delivered the welcome address and Mrs. Saroj Bala, Research Project Coordinator gave a brief introduction of the subject of the Seminar. 



H.E. Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam endorsed the scientific methods of dating of ancient events and emphasized that a mechanism needs to be built to disseminate the knowledge and information generated during the seminar amongst school and college children to generate a shared pride in our rich and ancient most heritage. His speech acted as a big motivating factor and as a morale booster for the research team of I-SERVE. He made many important recommendations, which included:
(i) Launching research on India's Epics with at least 100 Ph.Ds with highly talented historical, geological, astronomical and space scientists to ascertain the veracity of history and dates of events in our epics.

(ii) The scientific dating of our epics has also to be related to Genealogy and with human genome sequences.

(iii) The evolution of human origin put forth by Prof. Tobias should be related to events of Indian epics. After all, every Indian epic deals with human history, their conflicts and their civilization.

(iv) The spoken language period as per Prof. Tobias is around 10000 years old and the birth of Rama based on the 9th tithi of Chaitra month and sky view of planetary configurations at the time of birth dates to 10th January in 5114 BC, that is 7125 years back. We need to establish the relationship between the birth of spoken language and the evolution of Valmiki Ramayana.





OUTCOMES OF PRESENTATIONS AT THE NATIONAL SEMINAR

Scientific evidences from different sources and research studies have revealed that indigenous civilisation has been developing in India for last 10000 years and many of the events mentioned in Vedas and Epics appear to be true and are capable of being scientifically dated.

This National Seminar also proposed to bridge the gap between the information contained in research reports of our eminent modern scientists, available with the Ministry of Science & Technology and Earth Sciences on one hand and the contents of our School and college books on the other. The history has to be looked at as history of events which occurred sequentially on our land during last thousands of years. This only can lead to shared national pride amongst all Indians in our ancient most cultural heritage and scientific achievements of dim distant past -

i. The astronomical dates of planetary references in ancient books calculated by the eminent astronomers by making use of planetarium software, indicate the development of an indigenous civilization in India from dates even prior to 7000 BC. Astronomical references in Rigveda represent the sky view of dates belonging to the period from 8000 BC to 4000 BC and those mentioned in Ramayan refer to sky views seen sequentially on dates around 5000 BC. These dates are exclusive and match sequentially.

ii. Remote Sensing pictures taken by ISRO, corroborated by geological reports, have revealed that a mighty river system, referred to in Vedas and Epics as Saraswati, was flowing with full majesty around 6000 BC. The river slowly dried up and almost disappeared around 3000 BC. These conclusions have been supported by sedimentology, hydrogeology and drilling data. These conclusions not only support the astronomical dates of Vedas and Epics but also support such references in ancient books.

iii. The paleobotanical research reports have revealed that certain cultivated varieties of plants, trees and herbs, which are mentioned in Vedas and Epics, have existed in India continuously for more than 8000-10000 years. Remains of cultivated rice, wheat and barley have been found belonging to 7000 BC; melon seeds, lemon leaf, pomegranate, coconut and date palm etc relating to 4000 BC; lentils, millets and peas etc from 3000 BC; use of reetha, amla and shikakai for making shampoo since 2500 BC. These plants remained in use continuously indicating that there was not any abrupt end of ancient Indian civilisation as is normally being taught in schools and colleges.

iv. The latest archaeological excavations have revealed large volume of new data which has proved the indigenous origin and development of civilisation in the Indian Subcontinent since 7000 BC. Some examples are: Lahuradeva, Jhusi, Tokwa and Hetapatti in Ganga Valley in the east; Mehrgarh, Kot Diji and Nausharo in Indus valley in the northwest; Lothal and Dholavira in the west. The material testimonies of these excavations have shown gradual cultural developments from the 7th-6th millennium BC in the entire region of Indus-Saraswati-Ganga system for a period of almost eight thousand years. 

v. The anthropological research reports have established that DNA dating for Paleolithic continuity starts from 60000 BC. The Genome studies during the Holocene have revealed that the genetic profile of humans settled in north, south, east and west of India is the same and has remained the same for the last more than 11000 years. It is also significant to note that the inhabitants of the Harappan civilisation were not a mysterious people of unknown biological origins, or migrants from western/central Asia, but they were the indigenous people identified with the pre/early Harappan cultures of northwestern region of the Indian subcontinent. Therefore, contrary to the popular belief, the Dravidians as well as north Indians have common ancestors and both are originals of India, have common genetic profile and thus had common ancestors.
