The Vedic period was an age characterized by high levels of individual intellectual capabilities in areas of mathematics, astronomy etc. So perhaps, the people then had already unlocked the mysteries of the atom.
The Mahabharata describes the effects of a particular weapon used in warfare thus:
- "When the shell hit the ground, the darkness covered the sky, twisters and storms leveled the towns. A horrible blast burnt thousands of animals and people to ashes.”
- “Whole armies collapsed like trees in a forest burnt where they stood as in a raging fire”.
Another Ancient text the Drona Bhisheka refers to a war fought between good and evil forces where “All cities were consumed in an all encompassing inferno”.
These references point out the fact that these effects may have been caused by the intense heat released in a nuclear explosion.
Such a massive and long term impact on nature is usually the result of nuclear warfare.
Two decades after the Mahabharata, a war was fought that led to the destruction of the Yadava Clan. The Mausla Parva describing the effects of this war says “Asses were born of kine, and elephants of mules. Cats were born of bitches and mouse of the mongoose”
This may be a reference to widespread genetic mutation that radiation exposure causes in the course of nuclear warfare.
In this way, we find several references in many different ancient Vedic texts about the existence of nuclear technologies during the Vedic times!!
