When Did the Mahabharata War Happen?: The Mystery of Arundhati (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.895

In a drastic re-evaluation of astronomy observations from Mahabharata, using high-tech tool of modern astronomy and low-tech tool of the logic of scientific discovery, Nilesh Oak?s extraordinary book presents ordinary theory of astronomy observations that would lead to a quantum jump in our understanding of the Mahabharata War:

  • How a theory based on single unifying idea corroborates 100+ astronomy observations
  • Where to search for the year of the Mahabharata War ? Epoch of 6500 years & Compact time interval of 3000 years
  • How a single observation, previously known but unexplained, falsifies 96% of all proposals for the year of the Mahabharata War
  • Why does it matter how long Bhishma was lying on the bed of arrows
  • How ancient is the tradition of meticulous astronomy observations.

Acceptance of his theory leads to surprising conclusions about our current understanding of world civilizations, domestication of horses, dating of Ramayana or Vedas and antiquity of meticulous astronomy observations. Rejection of his theory would compel us to search for the likes of Newton and Lagrange, among the Sages of India, at least thousand years before Sir Isaac Newton & Joseph-Louis Lagrange

NASA & the Epic

Ancient Indian epic 'Mahabharata' has remained an enigma. More than a 100 scholars have expounded various hypotheses about the period when the events indicated in the Epic might have taken place. They range from plain right-wing blah-blah to meticulously researched analysis. Oak's book belongs to the latter, although I found his comparison between positioning of
Mahabharata warriors and those of stars a bit far-fetched. The author has used NASA data and computer simulation on an astronomy-software to arrive at the year of the Mahabharata War as 5561 BC. Accordingly, it appears that astrono...

Ancient Indian epic 'Mahabharata' has remained an enigma. More than a 100 scholars have expounded various hypotheses about the period when the events indicated in the Epic might have taken place. They range from plain right-wing blah-blah to meticulously researched analysis. Oak's book belongs to the latter, although I found his comparison between positioning of
Mahabharata warriors and those of stars a bit far-fetched. The author has used NASA data and computer simulation on an astronomy-software to arrive at the year of the Mahabharata War as 5561 BC. Accordingly, it appears that astronomers of that period were very much aware of Halley's Comet. Also, the star Alcor relocated itself from its position on the east of the star Mizar to the west of it. There is an anomaly between the author's inference and the period of Indus Valley Civilization and he frankly admits inability to explain it. In my opinion, he has highlighted the 'missing link' between astronomical events recorded in the Mahabharata and archaeological evidence discovered on IVC sites. Oak's findings provide a fresh angle to historians in India and SE Asia as well as to academicians on Indus Valley and Mesopotamian civilizations.
