Bringing it all together: slowly but surely

Another researcher wrote….

“IOW Saraswati started drying up from Ramayana times and still in process by time of Mahabharata.

Nilesh, how does this all reconcile with your new history process of geological record and narrative record?”

My response….

“Separation of Yamuna from Sarasvati as early as 49000 BCE (Clift et al)

Separation of Yamuna and Sharayu from Sarasvati even during Ramayana times (12200 BCE)

Lowering in flow of Sarasvati followed by increase (possibly due to heavy monsoon beginning ~7000 BCE -8000 BCE , until 4000 BCE) thus mixed state of Sarasvati (dried in some places, disappeared in other while full of water and navigable in still other places) during Mahabharata times ( 5561 BCE).

As coincidence would have it, two significant sea level rise events in 12200 BCE and 5525 BCE. Sea level rise of 6+ meters sometime within a span of 130 years (5600 BCE +/- 130) corroborates my/Vartak proposal for flooding of Dwarka in 5525 BCE (a significant earthquake can be thrown in for those who insist on more evidence)! 🙂

On the other hand, sea level rise event of 12200 BCE +/- 160 years further deepens the mystery of Nala-setu.

Geology, paleo-hydrology, Paleo-climatology evidence reconciles very well with timeline I have described above. Additional corroborative evidence pours in (from around the world)…so to say.. every day.”

  1. I have a question to ask, if I try to find geographical evidence about vedas…then vedas are filled with references to Rivers, and thus one can conclusively locate vedas in the sapta sindhu region. But do vedas mention the names of any cities? if not vedas then upanishadas? and do they specifically allocate the town/ city name to the vicinity of river they are located? if this is the case then can we somehow MATCH these names with the discovered vast archeological sites of indus-saraswati civilization? Say what vedic/upanishadic or epic( ramayana /mahabharata) era city is near kalibangan? Viratnagar seems to be on south, thus matsya kingdom on little south, surasena little eastwards…which cities/ towns were located on the banks of sarswati river? any mention? which rushi ashramas were located on the banks of sarswati river? the name of the river itself denotes as if it was the GIVER of knowledge? then did many rushis with their ashrama were located on the banks of the river? ANy clues will be helpful.

    • There is no clear answer to your question. What can be said is that there is so much information that is still not been identified. This is a rich field for investigation.

      What is needed is for enthusiastic researchers (driven by true passion for Satyam vachmi: Rutam vachmi to research with persistence and tenacity.
