Mr. P.N. Rangan, pen name 'Manu', is a well known figure in Kannada literary circle. In this first volume of the work titled 'Book of Reason', he propounds the theory of Extra-Terrestrial contact in the land of Bharata, that is India, based on logic, scientific facts and delving deep in to the knowledge available in Mahabharata and scientific facts found in Rigveda. 'Book of Reason' is thus a logical conclusion to 'Mahasamparka'.
Mr. P.N. Rangan, pen name 'Manu', is a well known figure in Kannada literary circle. In the second volume of the work titled 'Book of Probable', he explains the incidences of Mahabharata in the context of Extra Terrestrials' (Gods) contact, in a scientific manner, where the language of Gods is Sanskrit and where all the incidences are the culmination of the experiments conducted by these Gods.
India has been a major contributor to the world culture since times immemorial. In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with the changed scenario, the importance was shifted to the western countries. Till the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, India was on par with most of the countries in its contribution towards science, arts, culture, philosophy, literature etc., but lost its importance along with her independence.
The supremacy of the history of Indian culture which stood shoulder to shoulder with most of the other countries has been a witness to many vicissitudes. Human life evolved in India almost at the same time as in other parts of the world. Ramapithecus, the first known human being of India and Old Vye Gorge's African originator were probably contemporaries. He was a cousin brother of the most ancient human being who was found in Aramis mountain region of Ethiopia. Experts in Ancient history, while identifying the origin of human life on earth, consider Ramapithecus of India to be of equal importance, as the aboriginals of Africa. Human life originated on this earth about 4.5 million years ago. There is a strong argument that man evolved as a variation of the monkey family (Chimpanzee, Gorilla, Orangutan, and Gibbon).
Recent studies in determining the age of the bones of the aboriginals put back the date of human life by another million and a half years. The fossils of the 'Millennium Man' obtained in the 'Great Rift Valley' in Kenya have been dated back to about six million years by experts.
According to the recently completed 'Human Genome Project' in America (The gigantic project for the identification of human genes), about 99.9 per cent of the genomes of the humans on this earth are the same. The disparity due to the differences in appearance, colour, body structure, hair etc., based on time, country and religion make up for only 0.1 per cent.
This theory can be explained away in many ways. Firstly, even granting that the human life on earth evolved at different periods of times, in different ways, the origin must be unalterably the same. Or the picture of man in the 'Atlas' of the origin of life must be based on an unchangeable principle. Even if he appears different, based on his genetic qualities, he must have belonged to the self same rare origin. To adapt to the surrounding environment, there have been some genetic changes in various animals, but such changes are as negligible as about 0.1 per cent in human beings.
Secondly, he must have tried really hard to mingle with his own clan. The place of his birth would not have deterred him from mingling with people inhabiting a different area. He must have been a marvellous social being with eminent adaptability to readjust himself on a give and take policy.
Thirdly, in terms of advancement, people at different places and at different times must have arrived at similar answers. The process of advancement for people living in the extreme cold temperature of the north - the Eskimos, and the people living in the tropical land - the Negros, must have been the same.
