DISCLAIMER: Although I think this article is totally bogus, I’m posting it because it’s kind of fun.
Besides, it fits in well with my contention that the Gothenburg magnetic reversal about 12,000 years ago triggered huge Tunguska-like blasts around the earth.
And who knows? If the Mahabharata “clearly describes a catastrophic blast”…
8 Jul 11 – “Radiation still so intense, the area is highly dangerous,” says this article on wiki.com. “A heavy layer of radioactive ash in Rajasthan, India, covers a three-square mile area, ten miles west of Jodhpur. Scientists are investigating the site, where a housing development was being built.”
“For some time it has been established that there is a very high rate of birth defects and cancer in the area under construction. The levels of radiation there have registered so high on investigators’ gauges that the Indian government has now cordoned off the region. Scientists have unearthed an ancient city where evidence shows an atomic blast dating back thousands of years, from 8,000 to 12,000 years, destroyed most of the buildings and probably a half-million people.
The Mahabharata clearly describes a catastrophic blast that rocked 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 splendor…it 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 and nails 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 into the river.”
The radioactive ash is evidence, the article continues, that an ancient civilization had nuclear technology that led to atomic warfare. One researcher estimates that “the nuclear bomb used was about the size of the ones dropped on Japan in 1945.”

Rajasthan nuclear weapons – Rajasthan is where the Indian Government detonated its first Atomic bomb, near Pokhran. The first test, in 1974 was above ground, whereas the later tests were all underground.
See reference ‘Smiling Buddha’ and if I recall correctly, the others were referred to as ‘shakti 1,2,3 and 4. Shakti is a reference to the Drona Parva, found here:
Shakti is a reference to Varya, the lightening bolt, I believe.
