Vimanas and other achievements of vedic Hindukush or India- part1

Feeling proud of the Indians and their contribution to the world of science,
though westerners and our own people have made fun of the vedic base of our country would now probably repent for their so called inventions, which were made my people so early with very less resources. we might credit those who might have brought about a change in the world and society by their inventions which they deserve but to their knowledge and a few there's much to know that history repeats and these latest technologies of ours is late to our ancestors.
so a few in here to surprise you.


King Harishchandra  had an aerial or flying city called “Saubha” and the pilot who had the knowledge to fly was called “Saubhika”. People of those days even used the seven kinds of mirror and lenses installed aboard for defensive and offensive uses. The so-called 'Pinjula Mirror' offered a sort of 'visual shield' preventing the pilots from being blinded by 'evil rays' and the weapon 'Marika' used to shoot enemy aircraft 'does not seem too different from what we today called laser technology,' in their construction of vimanas. The height at which these were flown are measured in terms of krosa(1krosa=4000ft). These were built for normal people whereas amarangasuthradhara were more like rockets built for gods like Bramha, Vishnu, Indra etc  to travel long distances.
 A few Vehicles mentioned in rig veda:
       Jalayan - a vehicle designed to operate in air and water.
·         Kaara- a vehicle that operates on ground and in water.
·         Tritala- a vehicle consisting of three stories.
·         Trichakra Ratha - a three-wheeled vehicle designed to operate in the air.
·         Vaayu Ratha- a gas or wind-powered chariot.
             Vidyut Ratha- a vehicle that operates on power.
It was the use of Vimanas as space transportation systems that might have the clue as to why there is no physical evidence of these ancient aerospace vehicles.
          The Atlanteans, known as "Asvins" (The Horse faced twins called the Ashwini devathas)in the Indian writings, were apparently even more advanced technologically than the Indians.  They possessed Vailixi, similar to Vimanas, that were generally "cigar shaped" and had the capability of maneuvering underwater as well as in the atmosphere or even outer space. Other flight vehicles were saucer shaped, and could apparently travel submerged. It is recorded that between 12000 to 15,000 years ago, nations deploying Vimanas in space with lethal weapons were locked in a global war that destroyed almost all of human life and property on planet earth. Clinching archeological evidence to this effect has also been found. Thus, the weaponization of space should not be allowed to happen again.
Though at times there were “Dolis” or “pallakkis”  (a carriage carried by 4 men in which people and their possessions were being made to occupy the space of a canopy covered with wooden planks and silk screens) which were also being mentioned as Vimanas to clear these confusions here are a few examples mentioned with their constructions, though we have lost the information of a lot more vimanas we here stand with a few now obtained.
Pushpaka vimana:

'An aerial chariot, the Pushpaka, conveys many people to the capital of Ayodhya. The sky is full of stupendous flying-machines, dark as night, but picked out by lights with a yellowish glare.' The Vedas, ancient Hindu poems, thought to be the oldest of all the Indian texts, describe Vimanas of various shapes and sizes: the 'ahnihotravimana' with two engines, the 'elephant-vimana' with more engines, and other types named after the kingfisher, ibis and other animals.
 So here is the famous Rukma Vimana:(courtesy from the site INDIAN VIMANAS)
