Criticism & Analysis: Dating of Ramayana (5114 BCE) by Late Shri Pushkar Bhatnagar – Part 1 of Many

I am aware of five (5) distinct proposals, including mine, for the timing of Ramayana.
They are as follows:

(1) Dr. P V Vartak ( ~7,300 BCE)

(2) Shri M. R Yardi (~1,500 BCE)

(3) Late Shri Pushkar Bhatnagar (~5,200 BCE)

(4) SRS (initials of three authors) (~10,000 BCE)

(5) Nilesh Oak (~12,200 BCE)

For reasons, incomprehensible to me, the proposal of Late Shri Pushkar Bhatnagar has found flavor among few writers.

For example:

(1) Historical Rama (not to be confused with my ‘The Historic Rama) by D K Hema Hari & D K Hari

(2) Historicity of Vedic and Ramayana Eras: Scientific Evidences from the Depths of Oceans to the Heights of Skies by Saroj Bala & Kulbhushan Mishra

I would assert that these authors have not taken efforts to test and/or validate conclusions of Shri Pushkar Bhatnagar. I say this because if these authors had conducted verification/validation of dates proposed by Shri Pushkar Bhatnagar, they would have realized glaring errors in any and all assertions of Shri Pushkar Bhatnagar.

I have done just that in my book – The Historic Rama, and have shown that proposal of Shri Bhatnagar for ~5200 BCE (timing of Ramayana) can be shown to be incorrect based on the VERY evidence Shri Bhatnagar has employed (from Valmiki Ramayana) to derive his date.

In addition, I have shown that time of ~5200 BCE can be falsified as the timing of Ramayana, based on numerous astronomy observations of Valmiki Ramayana, that Shri Bhatnagar did not bother to consider.

We will begin our journey by defining details of Ramayana timeline, as proposed, by Shri Pushkar Bhatnagar.

To be continued….

  1. You are wrong! Recent carbon dating by NASA and National Geographic (2016) has confirmed that the “Ram-Setu” (Adam’s Bridge) attributed to the Ramayana was built 7000 years ago! This coincides with 5000 BC!

      • Have you read my works? Have you understood them? Have you even tried to critique them? If you did, what specific aspect you found not agreeing with scientific validation? Have you produced any work of your own and/or do you have an alternate claim for the date that you consider better claim than mine? What is it and what is your evidence? If you have nothing to answer in response to my above questions, do you understand what is the definition of ‘Vitanda’ (cavil)?

      • I admit! I am not near your class!! In fact I know nothing about astrology!! You are (compared to me) king! Having said that, you will need to tell the world that carbon dating is wrong! If you do that, then your name will become mud!! Have you considered that? Sometimes, it is necessary to come down and admit you are wrong! Carbon dating was not available earlier on Ram Setu. Now it is there!! No offense! Just a friendly advice!

      • I enjoy Trolls. Thank you for entertaining me. Remove your mask, identify yourself and then why don’t we (you and I) do an open debate, on camera, unedited, uncut – at a mutually convenient time and place.

        I would be very happy to share my expertise in carbon dating and any other research techniques you may want to explore. You will also have on camera evidence of my name becoming ‘mud’. What do you think of this consideration? If you want to read of my mistakes/wrongs, you can read numerous blog articles on this blog.

        My friendly advice is to have an open debate, on camera.


      • It seems you lack logical reasoning. Read and re-read previous posts to see why.

        I do consulting work in the area of many advanced instruments including AMS, which is is carbon dating par excellence! Hope this helps.

      • This argument was nonsensical from the minute you stated it. I am glad you recognized it at last. Trolls will be entertained on my own terms. Serious folks do not hide under a fake identity.

    • What nonsense! This search is for the truth, or approximation to the truth and not about who is smarter.

      But, then what you are writing is befitting your role of a troll. Please keep it coming. It will be used to educate those who visit my blog + I may use it as a case study of a Troll, to be employed in my existing and future courses.

      I had a pleasure of communicating with Late Pushkar Bhatnagar family and express my appreciation of his work to them.

      I am glad that you could find time from your ‘pretentious’ busy time to visit here, again, and comment.
