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.
Praise for 'When did the Mahabharata War Happen?: The Mystery of Arundhati'
"You have done a great job. I requested astronomers to consider if Arundhati had gone ahead of Vasisth in 1971, when I published 'Swayambhu' . But nobody cared. You are the first to do the great job!"
- P V Vartak (Author of 'Swayambhu' & 'Wastav Ramayana')
"A very interesting book to read. Author has approached dating of Mahabharat from a very innovative angle. He accurately predicts the date of the war. This book also gives a very good explanation of the nakshatras and their positions. It is facisnating to see the detailed research. A scientific approach in debunking all the theories so far. I highly recommend this book."
