Book Description
About the Book

A brilliant attempt to Scientifically investigate into the exact Date when the Great Mahabharata War began. Hailed as "a Significant contribution to our Know ledge" it is the Authors' Thesis for his Doctorate in Sanskrit (Ph.D.) in The Andhra University, Waltair. Using the latest Scientific techniques including Radio-Carbon Dating and Astro nomical Dating the book unravels the Mystic passages in the Sanskrit Epic of Mahabharata and arrives at the exact dating when the War had commenced. Containing a valuable Review of all the Research Material so far, on the subject, the book also contains the History of the Tradition of the Hindu "Panchanga" (Calender) from the Vedic Age till Arya bhatta; it includes also a Survey of the "Puranic Chronology of the Kings of Kali yuga", "The Cycle of Sapta Rishies" and also a Scientific Survey of Geology, Zoo logy, Paleontology Climatology, etc. about the gigantic Shift in the Earth's Axis and the rise of the Himalayas, fall of the seas, and even the global Cataclysm which altered the Calenders of the World, from Egypt to India. Hailed as "a Literary Volcano" this book throws up multi-disciplinary Research on the Date of Kaliyuga-Beginning which shakes up the existing Chronology of India. It also contains a rare Copper Plate Grant of King Janamajaya, the grandson of Yudhishtira granted at the time of the "Snake Sacrifice" (Sarpa Yaga); Dr. Veda vyas' research work is "bound to be a best setter". H. H. Dalai Lama's Foreword is an added attraction.

A Masterly Research that makes Chro nology, a Science-and not a literary surmise.


Ours has been the age of great changes. In the field of space travel man has travelled to other planets. In the field of Physics man has split the atom, which was for a long time since the days of Dalton, held as indestructible. In the field of Biology too, the reversal of sexes has been witnessed. And also major transplantation of organs including the heart and kidney, has been registered. Great and diverse have been these sudden and basic changes in man'sthinking in different fields, but still, the greatest change has been in man's Thinkingitself! Nothing shocks a Civilization like a severe jolt to its own pet ideas, fondly held and believed as the so called "accepted theory" long held as unquestionable truth. Used even though, we are, to an age of changes and mutations-still, a radical shake-up to our ways of thinking jolts mankind's age-old beliefs, particularly when these pertain to Mankind's early history. For, the dating of many ancient civilizations is generally believed to be gospel truth. Gospel truth indeed! For, most of the dates of early histories of ancient nations like Egypt, China and India have been 'fixed' with the help of the Gospels in the sense that the date of Creation of the Bible propounded by Bishop Usher in the last country of 4004 B.C. formed the dogma which conditioned the thinking of early historians like Sir William Jones, Max Mueller, Weber and Buhler, to quote a few. No doubt 'radicals' like Professor Jacobi and Bal Gangadhar Tilak did exist, who even in those days attempted to fix the dates of ancient scriptures on a pragmatic basis with the help of Astronomical dating. But they have been only radicals: nothing more! One is almost amused to see the elaborate attempts by other scholars to tone down the effect of the work of these scholars in shaking the foundations of the Gospel based Chronology.

The attempts were to soften the blows, the impact of the discoveries and to water down the effect of the disturbing discoveries, rather than to wake up to the universal fact-a general inadequacy of the basis for a correct chronology. Chronology as a Scientific discipline was long overdue. But the time has come, it appears, as it must sooner or later when new facts are everywhere discovered by Scientific Research, which are everyday dynamiting the basis of the once traditionally held dates and orthodox Chronologies, to which detailed references are made in the last chapter. These recent researches extend over a vast area of sciences, in fields which are divergent, widely separated from one author, which accumulated a vast body of evidence; of the changes that have occurred in the climate; of even a reversal in the order of Nature, around the third millennium before Christ. This is the time when "the sea parted" exposing land, in Moses' time making it possible for Israelites to cross the sea. It is also the time when the present cosmic cycle called Kali Yuga commenced, according to Hindu Astronomy.
