Ancient UFOs in India

There has been a lot of discussion lately involving Sitchin's work on the visiting Annunaki and their possible role in the making of modern humans.

However, I have always been fascinated with the stories from the Far East, especially those in the ancient Indian epic, the Mahabahrata and other similar works that described ancient advanced civilizations that had mastered flight and possibly atomic weapons described in such detail that such descriptions can be easily compared to modern weapons.

Here is one quote from an Indian scholar:

"India, according to Dr.V. Raghavan, retired head of the Sanskrit department of India`s pretigious University of Madras, was alone in playing host to extraterrestrials in prehistory. Dr. Raghavan contends that centuries-old documents in Sanskrit (the classical language of India and Hinduism) prove that aliens from outer space visited his nation. "Fifty years of researching this ancient works convinces me that there are livings beings on other planets, and that they visited earth as far back as4,000 B.C., " The scholar says. "There is a just a mass of fascinating information about flying machines, even fantastic science fiction weapons, that can be found in translations of the Vedas (scriptures), Indian epics, and other ancient Sanskrit text. "In the Mahabharata (writings), there is notion of divine lighting and ray weapons, even a kind of hypnotic weapon. And in the Ramayana (writings), there is a description of Vimanas, or flying machines, that navigated at great heights with the aid of quicksilver and a great propulsive wind. "These were space vehicles similar to the so-called flying saucers reported throughout the world today."

Even more amazing Vimanas seemed to come equipped with radar, communication apparatus, and some type of invisible ray that allowed the operators to see inside enemy's Vimanas.

I first read about these accounts in Desmond Leslie's book, "Flying Saucers Have Landed".  Leslie, having been a pilot during WWII flying British Spitfires, and interested in the modern UFO phenomena, was intriqued by these tales of Vimanas flying through ancient skies.

There is more, much more in these ancient works worth a study.
