Wheels in Ramayan: Better and faster than any modern day supercar.
The ‘chariots’ that find special place in the Ramayan. There were many celestial chariots that had flying capabilities but Puspak chariot finds special mention in the Ramayan. This chariot was orignally made by Vishwakarma for Kuvera, god of wealth. Later on, Ravana defeated Kuvera and took possession of the chariot.
We are quite aware of driverless cars, Artificial Intelligence, flying cars, supersonic engines, ion engine, interstellar travel, nuclear bombs and many technologies related to travel and warfare. But the future we are heading towards is already mentioned in the Ramayan.
While reading about vimanas, one may feel that they are reading about an alien space craft, but keep in mind that all this has been mentioned in the Ramayan.
The Puspak Charriot belonged to Kuvera before Ravana stole it. it appears like a full moon in the sky. looked like a hill which overed above ground. adorned with birds made of jewels , snakes made of silver and gold, artificial elephants with sharpely trunks showering scented water upon a carved statue of Lakshmi who held lotus flower in each of her hands and stood elegantly on a pool of water with. It had golden staircase and, white crystal floor and balconies made of sapphires. The charriot was made of gold and could travel anywhere following the mental indication of the driver. Rama ordered the chariot to return home to its orignal owner, kuvera, the god of wealth. he sent it back to Rama as he had conquered Ravanan hence rightfully belonged to him. Ram gave free will to the charriot, to go wherever it wants to. In case he needs its service Ram would call for it.
A few features of the the Chariots in the Ramayan
What were these wonder machines? Were they air crafts, hover crafts or maybe something more? They could fly which is not that complicated to imagine. The only stumble in beliefs the chronology of evolution and and human race as we know it. Another feature we are aware of is ‘stealth’. These chariots could disappear into and appear out of thin air. Well, we are aware of stealth technology and the famously desired invisibility cloak, which will definitely come to existence in the future.
Another feature that goes unnoticed is that of the Puspak chariot. It had a mind of its own and took orders verbally. ‘Alexa’ already exists so we know thats not quite far fetched and then the probability of advanced Artificial Intelligence of the chariots. If they. which suggests telekinetic connection between the owner and the chariot.
Shivkar Bapuji Talpade (1864 â€“ 1916) from Maharastra is said to have constructed the first unmanned airplane back in 1895. He was a scholar of Sanskrit literature and the Vedas. He is said to have successfully tested the Vimana. This is not just
Well, is it really hard to believe that such technology could exist in Ancient times? One should consider the fact that a little over 4.5 Billion years old. and we have only scratched a few thousand years of human history. That leaves a gap of say 4.5 billion years of history and scientists say life has existed for 3.9 billion years.
Hard to say that how much of the ancient remains we will find inside the earth, but we may not be the first intelligent life. We may be a few centuries away from the kind of technologies that are mentioned in the Ramayan. Is history repeating it self? Technologies such as Flying cars, ion engines, smaller yet more efficient weapons and interstellar vehicles will be in human hands. Human genome will change, naturally or artificially. Mixing up gene with animals to be stronger and faster.
Already these technologies are not alien to us, but something that will be developed in the near future. If we are heading towards a technological future that looks and sounds like the Ramayna, and if history is actually repeating it self, the world will witness the return of Shri Ram.
