The answers are simple

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”
– Dr. Seuss

All one has to do is comprehend, not so complicated, phenomenon of so called ‘the precession of equinoxes’ and complicated questions have simple answers.

(1) AV (Arundhati-Vasistha) observation (Bhishma Parva 2:31)

Answer: Mahabharata war did not occur anytime (not even a day late) after 4508 BCE (nor a day before 11091 BCE)! No IFS & BUTS.

(2) Bhishma on bed of arrows for >92 days (20+ observations of Mahabharata text)

Answer:  Mahabharata war did not occur anytime after 4000 BCE.  No IFS & BUTS.

(3) Sun setting near nakshatra Pushya, during Hemant rutu (autumn), during Ramayana times ( Aranya Kanda 16:12)

Answer: Ramayana war did not occur anytime after 11500 BCE! No IFS & BUTS.

(4) ‘Brahmarashi‘ as pole star during Ramayana times (Yuddha Kanda 4:48) and ‘planet Mars settled along ‘Brahmarashi’ on the first day of Mahabharata war (Bhishma Parva 3:16-18).

Answer:  Brahmarashi = Nakshatra Yogatara Abhijit

Ramayana around 12048 BCE and (Brahmarashi = Abhijit) 15000+ old tradition of Indian astronomy.  No IFS & BUTS.

(5) Lunar month of Ashwin coinciding with spring season during Ramayana times (Kishkindha Kanda, Sarga 16 & 53).  (In our times–as is currently happening this month— the lunar month of Ashwin coincides with pre-autumn/autumn season)

Answer:  Ramayana did not occur anytime after 11800 BCE! No IFS & BUTS.

& many more such simple answers.

A researcher from Delhi wrote me on a forum,

“If the answers are so obvious, Nilesh ji, then, why are our experts, Sanskritists, academics, researchers and professors, scholars and historians don’t understand it, or at a minimum challenge/provide rebuttal to your findings?”

I had no good answer, however, am reproducing response of another fellow forum member…

मूर्खो की सारी रात, चतूर कि एक घडी

  1. Yes, you have and I admire you for it. I also am amazed (while we will disagree on many points) that you could get to the root of many issues in a meticulous manner. the ‘amazement’ is due to the fact that many astronomers who otherwise show sound judgment…falter when it comes to things like AV observation or other such things. I am not sure why it is so. Whether deliberate or not, it is sad in either scenarios.

    Having said that, providing rebuttal and successfully falsifying are two different things. Soon, I will write longer version on Bhishma Nirvana where I would illustrate various varied arguments (interpolations, intentions, inconsistency) you have take help of in order to stick to your contention of 58 days for Bhishma on the bed of arrows.

    But for now….a simple arguments against 58 days is

    (1) Not a single Mahabharata researchers (among 130+) have shown 58 days (and day of winter solstice) for Bhishma, without getting into serious difficulties. And these difficulties DO NOT include difficulties they would face in explaining 20+ astronomy/chronology observation of Mahabharata text related to Bhishma Nirvana

    (2) I have shown not only that Bhishma was on bed of arrows for >92 days (based on ~20+ astronomy/chronology observations) but have also shown this to be the case for year 5561 BCE. (of course I did not begin with >92 day thesis.. rather I also began with 58 day (age old, well established!!!! thesis).

    That is for now.
