In India, there are lakhs of engineers passing out every year. But what if I say you that our ancestors are far better engineers who never had a professional degree? They were the ones who taught the world how to count and also has made atomic theories few centuries before the birth of John Dalton.Ancient Indian Civilization has a strong tradition of Science & Technology. Here are the five works which prove them.

1.The Kurukshetra War
Mahabharata is one of the two major epics of Ancient India. It narrates the two groups of cousins in the Kurukshetra war. Recent Researches and excavation in Kurukshetra, Haryana proves that Mahabharata was a nuclear war. It is suspected that they used the latest technologies like missiles which were also gamma emitters and were referred to as Brahmastra in Mahabharata. It is also claimed that it is impossible to kill 1.5 billion people in 18 days (Kurukshetra war duration) without nuclear weapons.

Brahmastra: “Brahma” is the center of the whole universe. Thus “Brahma” can also be considered the “nucleus”. Hence Brahmastra directly translates to Nuclear weapon.

2.7th Door

Padmanabhaswamy temple is in Kerala and after the revelation of few secret doors it has been declared as the richest worshiping place in the world with the net worth of 1.2 Lakh Crore Rupee. Though few secret doors were opened by the government, the 7th door is a steel vault which they couldn’t open. This door constructed by our ancient Indians has no keys and it is found that a specific mantra has to be preached at a specific frequency to unlock the vault.

This is what we learn in engineering that vibrations could move any objects and sound is a vibration!

3.Peruvudaiyar Kovil

Peruvudaiyar Kovil is the local name of Brihadeeswarar temple constructed in the 11th century by Raja Raja Cholan. I know many of us are familiar with the fact that it is constructed in such a way that the shadow of the temple never falls down. But how many of us know that the vimana (main temple tower) is made of interlocked bricks without any binding material like cement and it has survived various calamities until now?

4. Nataraja

Representation of Lord Shiva’s Rudra thandava and Anandha thandava is Natarajar statue which was originated from Tamil Nadu, India. The European Center for Research in Particle Physics in Geneva-CERN had divulged in 2004 that the moving Indian divinity, speaks to the infinite cycles of creation and demolition additionally delineates the elements of subatomic particles. Almost before 5000 years, Indians had already found the basis of creation of the universe that is being researched by physicists around the


5. Exertion Bell
The sex toy has become so common in this modern world. Though the Indian government has banned sex toys, Kamasutra says that women were using exertion bell and are not restricted to use them in public places.

Exertion bells were made up two combined tiny silver balls attached to a silk ribbon. One had a tiny amount of mercury whereas the other one had a small silver stone inside it. Upon exerting it inside, the women's movement would heat up the mercury which would then cause the ball to vibrate. This, in turn, will make the other ball move, making a tinkling sound. Vibrations were also accompanied by pleasuring sound.

This exertion bell is the father of the modern day’s engineered vibrators!
