Life’s origin traced to India, says study

A recent study-report published from Washington revealed that the earliest life forms discovered as of today are found in India.

The present-day geographic expanse called India was part of a larger Aryavartha where mankind flourished from time to time in every Manvanthra.

This is not a fictitious statement because we have the record in Surya Siddhnatha which says when this earth came into being and when the first life forms began to appear.

The keeping track of the days of the week is traced to the first day that started with the first Manvanthra. We have on record in astrology the number of days from the time when first life appeared.  Calculations have been done based on this and it is found that 714,404,096,641 days elapsed prior to 02-05-1827.

With this kind of record of Time in Hindu texts, it is no wonder that every discovery – be it in archeology or genetics, is pointing its finger to India for the origin of Life, of Mankind and Culture!





Complex life forms may have evolved on the earth 400 million years earlier than previously thought, a new study of fossils found in India has suggested.

An international team, led by Birger Rasmussen of the Curtin University of Technology, conducted the study in India which it claims opens a whole new window to the beginning of life on our planet

"New sampling of the Vindhyan basin in India has confirmed the presence of fossils older than has been previously accepted. These fossils, which are more than 1.6 billion years old, are likely to be more than a billion years older than what was previously accepted for fossils found in this region.

"They are also between 400 and 600 million years older than any multi-cellular life found anywhere on the planet," Prof Rasmussen said.

According to the researchers, the reason for the differences in the result from this test compared to earlier research was that the team used the world's best practices to get the job done right
"This was the first independent test done in the region. In previous reports material separation may have contaminated by other rock samples

"The team that I worked with wanted to avoid prospects of contamination, so we made sure the fossils were separated from the surrounding rocks in labs that we were certain could do the job correctly

"The age of the fossils was determined using lead dating of the phosphorate in the fossils. This is deposited with the organic material that becomes fossilised when it is buried in the sea floor, billions of years ago

This form of testing is generally very accurate when we are looking at a time scale of over a billion years," Prof Rasmussen said.
