The History Channel got it right! At least that’s the claim of some well-respected scholars operating in the Charama region of India. According to the leader of the archaeologists, J.R. Bhagat, cave art clearly shows that at least 10,000 years ago, aliens were in India. As might be expected, this strange bit of news has been received with considerable skepticism.
Bhagat, employed by the Chhattisgarh State Department of Archaeology and Culture, has gone straight to the top in his quest for additional help. He has contacted both NASA and the Indian Space Research Organization so that they can send experts to check out his amazing discovery. If those experts ever do show up, they’ll have to journey into the largely unexplored network of caves beneath the villages of Chandeli and Gotitola. Oral traditions from the villages include stories of the ‘rohela people,’ small figures who arrived in round flying objects. These figures took away some villagers in their flying object and never returned.
The cave paintings themselves, which have yet to be carbon dated, are said to be 10,000 years old. Natural pigments were used to produce the images, which have faded very little over the millennia since their application to the cave walls. Bhagat and others claim that the paintings depict UFOs, human-like figures with oddly shaped heads, and even individuals wearing spacesuits and holding strange-looking weapons.
Bhagat has also advanced the claim that the alien spacecraft painted on the wall may be the inspiration for Vimanas. Sanskrit epics reference mythical flying palaces or chariots, known as Vimanas. Hinduism spiritual texts, the Vedas, refer to multiple gods and demons using the Vimanas to fly across the sky. As speculation and skepticism continue to hang over these paintings, everyone awaits the word of the world’s foremost student of UFOs, NFL Pro Bowler and Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.
