Irradiated City


There is an area in Rajasthan, India with a layer of radioactive ash covering a three square mile area ten miles west of Jodhpur. The radiation is so intense that the area is considered dangerous. Scientists are investigating the site which was being developed into a housing development.


It was established that the area had a high incidence of birth defects and cancer while the area was under construction. The levels of radiation have measured so high on instruments that the Indian government has now restricted access to the area.


Scientists discovered an ancient city at the site which shows evidence of and atomic blast which the experts date back to between 8,000 and 12,000 years ago. The blast destroyed most of the buildings and probably a half-million people. One researcher has estimated that the blast was comparable to one of the bombs dropped over Japan during W.W.II


The Mahabharata, an ancient Indian document, describes a devastating explosion that shook 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 race...the corpses were so burned as to be unrecognizable. Their hair fell out, pottery broke without any 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 the river."


Historian Kisari Mohan Ganguli says that Indian sacred writings are full of such descriptions, which sound like an atomic blast as witnessed in Japan in 1945. References in the ancient writings also mention fighting sky chariots and the final weapons. "An ancient battle is described in great detail in the writing titled the Drona Pavra, which is 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.


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.


The radioactive ash seems to add credibility the these ancient Indian records that describe atomic warfare thousands of years before our current (re)discovery of the atom.


Construction has halted while a five member team conducts an investigation of the site.



According to the Rajasthan city government, there is no such place 10 miles west that is approx. 3 square miles and contains high radioactivity. There is, though, a highway...




Äbout the "Ancient Indian City Irradiated From Atomic Blast" - there are numerous websites that have copies of this report, most state that it was published in something called the "World Island Review" in January of 1992. Unfortunately, a Google search on the name of this publication turns up *nothing but* references to this particular article, so it seems questionable whether there ever even was a regular publication by that name.


Also, there is a modern-day nuclear reactor in Rajasthan which has apparently had problems that resulted in the release of radioactive material, so that may be the true source of the radiation found.
