Lord Brahma Discovered Dinosaurs Before Americans or Britishers: Panjab University Geologist
A Panjab University scientist, who had been conducting research on the origins and existence of dinosaurs in India for the last 25 years, has claimed that it was Lord Brahma who had first discovered dinosaurs.
In an interview with the Indian Express, Ashu Khosla, associate professor in the department of geology at Panjab University, India was a hotspot for dinosaur evolution and breeding before extinction. A dinosaur named Rajasaurus had originated in India.”
Citing the Vedas as his primary source, he added, "There is nothing that Lord Brahma, who is creator of this universe, did not know. He was completely aware of the existence of dinosaurs and even mentioned them in Vedas. Before anyone else in the world, it was Lord Brahma who discovered dinosaurs’ existence on earth."
The gelogist presented these claims in a research paper entitled ‘Biotic assemblages from the Deccan trap-associated sedimentary sequences of penninsular India’ at the 106th Indian Science Congress, which was held at Lovely Professional University.
He claimed that dinosaurs were mentioned in the Vedas, explaining the meaning of the word 'dino-saur' and linking it back to Sanskrit. "‘dino’ means terrible, it translates to ‘daayan’ and ‘saur’, which otherwise means lizard, is related to ‘asur’. So, everything that exists on earth is well-mentioned in Vedas,” he explained.
Kholsa also claimed that there was an 'Indian dinosaur', which he had discovered the remains of, in Kheda district of Gujarat and had officially named it ‘Rajasaurus Narmada ensis’.
“When we found the remains of Rajasaurus in Gujarat in 2001 along the banks of river Narmada, we named it ‘Raja’ to signify ‘lion’ as it was a meat-eating dinosaur. It was believed that Rajasaurus was linked to Tyranosaurus, which had origin in North America, but we proved that Rajasaurus was a new dinosaur and originated in India,” he added.
Asked if there is any scientific basis or evidence that the dinosaurs were mentioned in Vedas by Lord Brahma, Shukla said Vedas were written 25,000-30,000 years ago, whereas dinosaurs became extinct 6.5 crore years earlier.
"Since Vedas were not written on paper, but on leaves, we might not have a scientific evidence, but dinosaurs were certainly mentioned in Vedas by Lord Brahma," he said, adding how everytime he went on an excavation, he would pray to Lord Brahma to help him.
But it wasn't only dinosaurs that he stopped at which was taken from the Vedas.' He also made the claim that, "Even Wright Brothers took the idea of aeroplane from Pushpak Vimaan that was used by Ravana in Ramayana.”
