Was LORD RAM REAL HISTORICAL CHARACTER? If yes, when did he travel from Ayodhya to Sri Lanka to bring succor to millions of innocent and suffering Indians. Was Ramsethu a walkable bridge in 5000 BC as per sea level curve prepared by the oceanographer of the world?
Did Saraswati River actually flow from the Himalayas to the Sea and was it really a mighty river in 5000 BC?
So far history of the world, particularly of Indian Subcontinent, is based on linguistic guesswork and religious believes hearsay. However during last 30-40 years, several new scientific tools and techniques have been developed which are capable to determining the dates of any ancient events in scientific and precise manner. Multi-disciplinary in scientific research reports, were used for dating the events narrated in Ramayan by Mahasishri Valmiki and results were amazing. Once the astronomical dating was determined around 7000 BC, it appeared that almost all research reports were corroborating such conclusions and opening before us the pages of our true history; shifting many events from the domain of mythology to the realm of reality.
Mahasishri Aadikavi Valmiki in 1/18/8-10 of Ramayana has given details that Shri Ram was born on 9th tithi of Chaitra month during day time mentioning the position of different planets vis-à-vis zodiac constellations and Nakshatras. This data was entered into the “planetarium Gold software, the results indicated that this was exactly the location of planets, stars, constellations on the 10th January noon time in the year 5114 BC if viewed from latitude/longitude of Ayodhya (25°N 81°E). Thus, Shri Ram was born on January 10, in 5114 BC.
On the basis of planetary configuration described in various other chapters of Valmiki Ramayan, the date on which Ram was killed works out to be December 4, 5076 BC and Shri Ram completed 14 years of exile on January 2, 5075 BC and that day was also Navami of Shukla Paksha in Chaitra month. Thus, Shri Ram has come back to Ayodhya when he was 39 years old (5114-5075 BC ).
Ram's Bridge its satellite image and oceanographic evidences:-
A few years back, NASA had put pictures on internet of this bridge, the ruins of which are found submerged in Palk strait between Rameshwaram (Dhanush Koti) and Mannar (Thalai Mannar).The bridge is 30km long. It is found exactly at the location narrated in Valmiki Ramayan. Ram Setu is found submerged at about 3 meters depth at present implying thereby that in 5100 BC, this setu was above the sea level and could be used as a long route between Rameshwaram and Sri Lanka.
Sri Lankan Government wanted to construct a land route over Ram Setu whereas government of India wanted to blast it for shipping i.e. Sethusamudaram project. All efforts made on behalf of the government so far to destroy remains of Ram Setu have failed and consequently, Sethusamudaram Shipping canal could not become a reality.
From Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Bengal to Gujarat, everywhere people of India believe in the reality of Shri Ram’s existence and most of our festivals revolve around the events related to the life of Shri Ram. The events and places referred to in Ramayan represent our most ancient heritage, which has developed and got enriched subsequently during the eras of Lord Krishna Mahatma Buddha, Mahavir and Guru Nanak Dev.
There is need for the print and the electronic media to take note of these facts and create atmosphere which would Motivate out young and educated youth to carry out research and unearth true facts about ancient Indian civilisation and wisdom and would also encourage them to put across the result of their research before the world fearlessly and with a sense of pride.
