Lucknow: Joining CM Biplab Deb’s league of bizarre statements, Uttar Pradesh deputy chief minister Dinesh Sharma claimed that test tubes babies existed even during the period of Ramayana, and Goddess Sita was born using similar method.

“People say Sita ji was born from an earthen pot, which means at the time of Ramayana, a concept similar to test tube baby must have existed. Today, if we talk about aircraft, we can compare it with the Pushpak vimaan on which Lord Ram used to fly from Ayodhya to Lanka,” Sharma said at a function in Lucknow.

He added that other modern day technologies like cataract operation, plastic surgery, gravitational theory, atomic tests and internet started in the mythological era.

The deputy chief minister even went on to claim that live telecast also happened during Mahabharata.

“Today, live telecast is being done, but I think a similar technology was present at the time of Mahabharata, when Sanjaya presented a live telecast of the Mahabharata battle to Dhritarashtra,” he said. Sharma was referring to the mythological character, Sanjaya, who sat in Hastinapur and narrated a bird's eye view of the war of Mahabharata to Dhritarashtra.

“Your Google has started now, but our Google started long time back. 'Narad Muni' was the epitome of information. He could reach anywhere and transfer a message from one place to another by saying ‘Narayana’ three times,” he said.

Earlier, Tripura chief minister Biplab Deb had also claimed that internet existed during days of Mahabharata.




Miffed by Sharma’s claim, Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha president Swami Chakrapani said, “How can one link Sita Ma to worldly and physical things? She was an avatar of Goddess Laxmi. Such statements are an insult to her and the entire Sanatan Dharma.”
