Indian Scientists to find out hidden truths about Ram Setu Infrastructure
The bridge between India and Sri Lanka is mentioned in the Ramayana. Now an attempt is being made to find a scientific basis for this.
New Delhi: After the photographs of Ram Setu from Rameswaram to Sri Lanka, different institutions including NASA did many research on it. Despite this, many of its secrets are still hidden in the womb of the sea. To open the layers of these mysteries, the National Institute of Oceanography of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) Goa is going to start a research.
Study on infrastructure of Ram Setu:
In this research starting from March, this information will be collected, how is the structure (infrastructure) of Ram Setu? How much impact has this had on the geological movement? According to NIO Director Professor Sunil Kumar Singh, the length of Ram Setu or Adam's Bridge is about 48 km. The bridge between India and Sri Lanka is mentioned in the Ramayana. Now an attempt is being made to find a scientific basis for this. This is the first time such a campaign is being conducted by Indian scientists.
There will be no dilling in the structure. Only physical observation will be done. All tests will be conducted within laboratories. Professor Singh said that the scriptures state that wooden slabs were used in the bridge. If so, it would have turned into a fossil by now. An attempt will be made to find it.
India has a vast coast of over 7,500 kilometers. The oceans contain a treasure of past records. Dwarka has been studied so far by the NIO. In which there is preliminary evidence that Dwarka was a part of Gujarat. This part may have sunk because of the rise in sea level.
Stone anchors were found from three to six meters deep. The remains of the ancient port were found. Similarly a study has been started to trace the missing coast temples of Mahabalipuram in Tamil Nadu. Currently, several ship wrecks, including one off the Odisha coast, are under study.
