Aliens in ancient India?
The whispers regarding alien visit on Earth has been a topic of debate for several conspiracy theorists. Searching extraterrestrial beings, UFO spotting, alien sightings, and civilizational conflicts are like a loose thread in the fabric of reality. The existence of aliens is never questioned among the Desi theorists. Any unexplained Arial phenomena are always mistaken as an alien encounter or an alien doing. But never in history, did anyone ever gave strong evidence about extraterrestrial beings, unlike India. Have you ever heard about the Alien Rock Paintings of Charama?
Puzzling ancient rock paintings depicting alien figures have been found in the caves of Charama in the tribal Bastar region of Chhattisgarh. These paintings are as old as 10,000 years. Interestingly, locals too have fascinating legends regarding the conspiracy. Let’s take a look at the Desi conspiracies of Charama alien rock paintings.
Alien Rock Paintings of Charama
Chhattisgarh has an abundance of ancient rock paintings. Because it was a place of pre-agrarian settlement before the movement of tectonic plates, a number of sites bearing pre-historic paintings have been found in the region. Located about 130km from Raipur, ancient rock paintings depicting alien figures have been found in the caves of Charama by Archaeologist JR Bhagat. These 10,000-year-old rock paintings depict strange figures of UFOs and extra-terrestrial beings. Amusingly, a UFO-type craft next to a look-alike ‘wormhole’ formation in the sky is also made on the walls of the caves. The most notable feature is that the human paintings do not include the basic features such as a nose or mouth and in a few pictures they are also shown wearing a spacesuit. Other discovered cave paintings include a hybrid of humans and fish- perhaps a mermaid.
This strange discovery raises several questions about ancient India like how the people came to know about such advanced things in an unadvanced world. While the local people worship these paintings, the rest have been grown up hearing stories about the ‘Rohela people- the small sized one’ from their ancestors. According to the legend, the Rohela people would come in around disc-like flying objects from the sky and would take few people along who would never return. Archeologists suggest that ancient people had a belief that they are not alone in the universe. Or they could have seen or imagined unexplainable things. But it’s fascinating to know that ancient people knew or imagined about wormholes or aliens when even modern scientists are skeptical about it. Both NASA and ISRO had been contacted to look more into the paintings for more answers.
Some people also believe that maybe the human civilization was established with the help of aliens. While rest suggest that encounters with the alien help ancient Indian civilization understand how a flying object works which are further recorded in Vimana shastra. In many parts of the world, people believe that the deities of several religions are extraterrestrial in nature and that they were misunderstood as divine beings. Whether these speculations are true or not, one thing is positive that there might have been a chance where human imagination reached an amazing level of understanding.
Does Alien Exist?
Is mankind alone in the whole universe? Or is there any planet similar to us? Are there extraterritorial beings watching us over? There are several sets of puzzling questions that make us question the unknown. It’s our curiosity or intelligence that whenever we look up at sly, our eyes search for anything similar to us. One of the most spectacular scientists Stephen Hawking believed that there is life on other planets in the universe that might not be an alien concept. He strongly supported the idea of not being alone in the universe. He also warned humans, that if humanity doesn’t find a way of going to space, their extinction is inevitable.
“I believe that life on Earth is at an ever-increasing risk of being wiped out by a disaster such as sudden nuclear war, a genetically engineered virus, or other dangers,” said Stephen Hawking.
There are 300 billion stars in our galaxy alone, with new planets being discovered traveling around them. There are around 4,000 exo-planets just in our galaxy. Thus assuming there won be any life other than earth is as stupid as it seems. Experts believe that humans have enough intelligence and technology to connect with extraterrestrial beings, the only trouble is- how they will respond. Hawking said that if aliens ever visit us, the outcome would be much different than what we assume. It could be like when Christopher Columbus first found America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.
NASA on 23 July 2015 announced that they have located earth-like planet Kepler-452b that exhibits similar traits of atmosphere and surface. NASA called it Earth 2.0. In February 2017, NASA once again found seven more Earth-like planets. The basic elements that are needed to create life on any planet are carbon, nitrogen, water, and a source of energy like the sun. Thus if a planet bears these fundamental requirements, there is a fair chance that we might find life on such planets. Though alien connection in the past is unknown, but in the future it might possible that are questions will be answered.
