In order to gain further understanding of the scripture, it will be worth to take reference from Dr. V. Raghavan. He has written almost 120 books and 1200 articles. He won the Sahitya Academy Award for Sanskrit.

dr-v-raghamanDr. Raghavan contends that centuries-old documents in Sanskrit prove that aliens from outer space visited his nation.

He quotes-“Fifty years of researching this ancient work convinces me that there are living beings on other planets, and that they were visiting the earth as far back as 4000 B.C.”

He even explained that there has been reference of science fiction weapons and flying machines in the Vedas and other Indian epics.
Another author Dr. A.V. Krishna Murty, professor of aeronautics, at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore says similar:

“A study of the Sanskrit texts has convinced me that ancient India did know the secret of building flying machines -and that those machines were patterned after spaceships coming from other planets.”
It indeed seems that many of the details are still left to be explored and understood. May be its high time to alter the history books and the impact on the chapters and contents to be included.
Flying ships, fictional weapons and interstellar trip did exist much before!
