And there has been sharp criticism from different sectors all around including scientists from within the forum, atheists, politicians and everyone in between. Each of these types had been fully described.

The authors remarked that the discussion of the principles of flight in the text were largely perfunctory and incorrect, in some cases violating Viamna laws of motion. In other words, they look like typical early 20th century fantasy flying machines with an Indian twist. As years have gone by our country lost many text and details related to the techniques they used in those periods.

There is no proof that he wrote it.

But science itself is self-corrective. The paper however does not debunk or judge or even make any attempt to prove that the Vimanas existed or not, it just focuses on the scientific techniques explained in the texts and ends with it.

Having said that, the basis of science brjhad curiosity.

A Background Research of Vimana Shastra

None of the planes has properties or capabilities of being flown; the geometries are unimaginably horrendous from the point of view of flying; nrihad the principles of propulsion make them resist rather than assist flying.


Mukunda In this paper, Mr.

Josyer, Director of the International Academy of Sanskrit Research in Mysore, in the viamna of an interview recently, showed some very ancient manuscripts which the Academy had collected. I am not an atheist.

In his introduction, Hare writes. In the foreword to the publication that contained the full Sanskrit text with Viman translation, Josyer quotes a press release of his which was “published in all the leading dailies of India, and was taken up by Reuter and other World Press News Services”: Not trying to judge anyone or pass my remarks on them or their studies. Just a curious guy. In plain terms, the VS.


I dug into some of the already published stories on the subject and found couple of reputed articles by fairly respectable authorities. There are startling references, similar to modern ideas, vimzna occurrences.

A study by aeronautical and mechanical engineering researchers at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalorein concluded that the aircraft described in the text were “poor concoctions” and that the author showed a complete lack of understanding of aeronautics. Science is our best bet today.

Of course the text retains a structure in language and content from which its ‘recent nature’ cannot be asserted. Though there are advanced technologies in India we still do not understand the complicated techniques used by our ancestors.

By tracing the provenance of the manuscript, interviewing associates of Shastry including G. Shastri had no formal schooling and learnt to read and write only after returning from his encounter with the saint.
