    Viraja, you are too kind and too charitable.

    As 'jignyAsu' has alluded, redefining the use of 'celestial weapons' and turning them into UFO attacks is equivalent to making a mockery of the whole thing. They should be explained for what they are, not what is the equivalent to them in the fictional star war type movies of today.

    Pranam.

He takes this incident to be a solar eclipse and calculates a date - Krishna hiding sun is too much for him and yet Sri Vyasa has document many an eclipse and so knows the difference. Very few fortunate souls are able to take our Itihasa puranas as they are.

    Ofcourse such pseudo conclusions are useful for agnostics struggling with their faith.........
    Astrologer, both Indian and Western, who have been interested in Ramayana, have been thinking it happened about merely 5000 years ago.. Because it seems there had been a day 5000 yrs ago when Rama's natal astrological placements vibed with the planetary placements for the day! That puts 'Treta yuga' just 5000 yrs ago! And they are eager to place Mahabharata to have happened 3000 yrs ago, giving a gap of just 2000 yrs of Treta yuga to complete before Dwapara yuga to have started! Very funny indeed, but it was interesting to read that there was a day 5000 yrs ago when planetary placement was in alignment with Rama's jatakam.

    The planetary placements as described in detail by our great sages are indeed a very good source to trace our history. I don't know about jatakams, but the astronomical positions tend to repeat themselves every several thousand years or so and that can explain the similar patterns. And the scientists' idea of astronomy is not as accurate as they project to be.

    Scientists will be ridiculed today if they talk about a treta yuga being a million years back. But by projecting the theory of a "perfect being" Rama evolved from grandpa rock after having travelled across the globe as per the "dancing ethiopian theory", they can be in good books everywhere. But in the end all we have remaining is a sudden unexplainable transformation to a unique Vedic wisdom, which happened only in India.

    It might be interesting to read this article that discusses various astrologers' stand on Rama's birthday being 10th January 5114 BC at 12:30 PM.

    Namaste!
    Let me make two comments:
    1. Alexandria in Egypt is on the coast and it is 2000+ years old and nowadays part of it is underwater. Therefore, I don't find it unreasonable to propose that part of the city of Dwarka is underwater, since we know that Dwarka was settled by the Indus society 3500+ years ago.

    2. I would not expect the underwater part of the city to be both bigger and older than the other major cities of the Indus society of 3500-1500 BC. I expect that the more primitive cities/villages of 8000-3500 BC of Hindustan would be comparable to the underwater part of Dwarka. In other words, I expect that in 8000-3500 BC, Indus society was more primitive than in 3500-1500 BC, and that we would not expect the "Underwater Dwarka" to be more developed in the period of 8000-3500 BC than the rest of our findings. Do you understand what I mean?
