FLIGHT PATH

By Mukul Sharma
The Times of India
Thursday, April 8, 1999

According to some interpretations of surviving texts, India's
future it seems happened way back in its past.

Take the case of the Yantra Sarvasva, said to have been written
by the sage Maharshi Bhardwaj.

This consists of as many as 40 sections of which one, the
Vaimanika Prakarana dealing with aeronautics, has eight
chapters, a hundred topics and 500 sootr.

In it Bhardwaj describes vimaan, or aerial craft, as being of
three classes: (1) those that travel from place to place; (2)
those that travel from one country to another; and (3) those
that travel between planets.

Of special concern among these were the military planes whose
functions were delineated in some very considerable detail and
which read today like something clean out of science fiction.
For instance they had to be:

 o  impregnable, unbreakable, non-combustible and indestructible

 o  capable of coming to a dead stop in the twinkling of an eye

 o  invisible to enemies

 o  capable of listening to the conversations and sounds in
    hostile planes

 o  technically proficient to see and record things, persons,
    incidents and situations going on inside enemy planes

 o  know at every stage the direction of movement of other
    aircraft in the vicinity

 o  capable of rendering the enemy crew into a state of
    suspended animation, intellectual torpor or complete loss
    of consciousness

 o  capable of destruction

 o  manned by pilots and co-travellers who could adapt in
    accordance with the climate in which they moved

 o  temperature regulated inside

 o  constructed of very light and heat absorbing metals

 o  provided with mechanisms that could enlarge or reduce images
    and enhance or diminish sounds

Now, notwithstanding the fact that such a contraption would
resemble a cross between an American state-of-the-art Stealth
Fighter and a flying saucer, does it mean that air and space
travel was well known to ancient Indians and aeroplanes
flourished in India when the rest of the world was just about
learning the rudiments of agriculture?

Not really (the perception of the absence of proof is no proof
of the proof's absence.  -  Jai Maharaj), for the manufacturing
processes described alongside are delightfully diffuse and
deliberately vague. But it does display a breathtaking expanse
of imagination which, had it ever been implemented, would have
propelled us even further than Star Trek. - Mukul Sharma

Not for commercial use. Solely to be fairly used for the
educational purposes of research and open discussion.

  "A king, though endowed with little prowess, starting on an
expedition at the proper time, in view of the good positions of
the planets, achieves greatness that is eulogised in the
scriptures." - Brhat Samhita, 104.60
