16 kilometers west of Jodhpur, in Rajasthan, India, there is a danger zone covered with a heavy layer of radioactive ash. This zone covers an area of 5 square kilometers and is still uninhabitable due to high levels of radiation. This place attracts the attention of scientists who are exploring it and trying to unravel its mystery.
The high rate of birth defects and cancer among the inhabitants of this zone shows the serious effects of radiation. The radiation levels here are so high that the Indian government had to cordon off the area for the safety of the people. Scientists conducting research in this area have discovered an ancient city which, according to their findings, was destroyed by a nuclear explosion that destroyed most of the buildings and claimed many lives.
One researcher suggests that the explosion was caused by the use of a nuclear bomb comparable to those dropped by the U.S. military on Japan in 1945. This is supported by the description of the catastrophic explosion in the ancient Indian epic Mahabharata. “A single projectile charged with all the power of the universe….. A pillar of smoke and flame, bright as 10,000 suns, rose in all its splendor…. It was a weapon like an iron lightning strike, a gigantic messenger of death that turned all living things to ashes. Bodies were burned beyond recognition. Pottery broke for no apparent reason, birds turned pale. In a few hours all food was contaminated. To escape this fire, the soldiers threw themselves into the river.”
Historian K. Ganguly confirms the presence of references to nuclear explosions in ancient Indian scriptures. He refers to descriptions of battles where weapons of mass destruction and celestial chariots were used. One such battle is described in the Mahabharata’s Drona Parva, where “explosions of lethal weapons destroyed entire armies, causing crowds of warriors with horses, elephants and weapons to be swept away as if they were dry tree leaves.” Interestingly, instead of describing mushroom clouds, as is common with nuclear explosions, there is mention of perpendicular explosions with waving clouds of smoke, as if giant umbrellas had been opened. There are also comments about food contamination and hair loss.
Archaeologist F. Taylor suggests that engravings found in nearby temples contain prayers for deliverance from the great light that sought to destroy the city. This confirms the presence of nuclear technology in ancient civilizations. Radioactive zones found in the area confirm descriptions of atomic battles in ancient Indian scriptures.
Other evidence of atomic warfare in ancient India comes from the excavations of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro, where skeletons of people were found in positions indicative of sudden death. These skeletons are some of the most radioactive skeletons ever found. At one site, scientists found a skeleton with radioactive levels 50 times higher than normal.
Thus, based on archaeological and historical evidence, it can be concluded that ancient India faced atomic warfare, as evidenced by radioactive zones and descriptions of nuclear explosions in ancient scriptures. This opens a new chapter in the history of mankind and makes us think about the possibility of using nuclear weapons in the past.
