We all know about the great epic Mahabharata. It’s about the kuru lineage. In other words it’s an epic narrative of the Kurukshetra War and the fates of the Kaurava and the Pandava princes. It’s author is maharishi vyasa and the epic has always been in controversies whether its just an imaginary fiction story or real history.
It has been written in the epic from time to time that Mahabharat is a “itihas” which exclusively means “thus occured”. The words “Puraan” and “Itihas” were specifically coined by the ancient people to categorize the “ancient” and “recent” events. Both the words denote history that has occurred at different times. If the intentions of the writer were to write a poem or a work of fiction, he would have stated it to be a “mahakavya” or “katha”. It’s also said nowadays that the epic is a story, but in reality the writer (vyasa) has stated it to be history.
Also, It is mentioned in Aadiparva, Adhyaya 62 that the records of the Bharat-Dynasty are recorded in the Mahabharata. A number of dynasties with their long lineage of kings (more than 50 from Manu) have been presented in the work. If it were just fiction, 4-5 kings would have sufficed to build the story on. Won’t it be??
Read the description of Kaliyuga as mentioned in Mahabharata. Whatever Krishna said tallies with creepy, mysterious accurateness with modern life as it exists today. And remember – this was written thousands of years ago! Fiction? Unlikely because there are way too many corroborations and tallying circumstances for it to be fiction. And so many things described in the epic which exists even today
Marine archaeology has also been utilized in India off the coast of the ancient port city of Dwaraka in Gujarat, uncovering further evidence in support of statements in the Vedic scriptures. An entire submerged city at dwarka, the ancient port city of Lord Krishna with its massive fort walls, piers, warfs and jetty has been found in the ocean as described in the Mahabharata and other Vedic literatures. Many different objects have been found at that place that proves that the city of dwarka existed once and so the epic is found to be true.
A sanskrit verse from the Mausala Parva 7 verse 40 of the Mahabharata, describes the disappearance of the city of Dvaraka into the sea. “After all the people had set out, the ocean flooded Dvaraka, which still teemed with wealth of every kind. Whatever portion of land was passed over, the ocean immediately flooded over with its waters.”
Even More than thirty-five sites in North India have yielded archaeological evidence and have been identified as ancient cities described in the Mahabharatha. Copper utensils, iron, seals, gold & silver ornaments, terracotta discs and painted grey ware pottery have all been found in these sites. Scientific dating of these artifacts corresponds to the non-aryan-invasion model of Indian antiquity. And so all these objects belonged to the kuru lineage, the Mahabharata so many proofs can’t state it imaginative stories, right and
The Greek historian Megasthenes has stated that Chandragupta Maurya was the 138 King in the lineage of Shri Krishna. This means that Shri Krishna did exist in the bygone era and that Mahabharat did really occur.
All places mentioned in Mahabharata are real places, all are identified as real places. For instance, Hastinapur is in UP. Indraprastha is the present day Delhi. Dwarka is located in Gujarat coast. Moreover, Mahabharata cities are not limited to present day India because Mahabharata referred Indian subcontinent as Bharata. For example, Gandhar could be present day Kandhar.
The Udyoga Parva of Mahabharata narrates that, just before the War, Lord Krishna went to Hastinapur in the month of Kartika on the day when moon was at the asterism Revati. On His way to Hastinapur, Krishna took rest for a day at a place called Brikasthala, and on that day the moon was at the asterism Bharani. The day on which Duryodhana turned down all the efforts of Krishna and made the war inevitable, the moon was resting at the asterism Pushya. Such details have been added in Mahabharata, so these can’t be mere stories and the epic isn’t a mere fiction
Krishna left Hastinapura with Karna, on the day when the moon was yet to reach Uttara Phalguni. Karna accompanied Him to some distance to see Him off and he then described to the Lord the positions of planets in the sky and expressed his apprehension that such a planetary configuration stood for very bad omen: such as large scale loss of life and drenching of blood. Vyasa narrated all these planetary positions in as many as sixteen verses as if someone was describing it after visualizing them in the sky. So these can’t be ignored by anyone.
The country is named Bhaarat after the king Bharat (son of Dushyant & Shakuntala). What country would be named after the hero of a novel! I don’t think any… So this describes the truth of the existence of the extraordinary epic
It is ridiculous to say that these texts are fiction, because of its poetic nature. It was a custom to write everything (even Mathematical formulae) in poetic form during the ancient times… And in kurukshetra in Haryana , wen the field was dug many weapons and of course, the highlight, the mud was red all over, highlighting that a great destructive war took place …. These so many proofs can’t be false that means my favourite epic story is true and has really took place… There’re uncountable proofs to prove this want more then comment… Pls do comment and post ur opinions about this article…
