Just about everyone has heard the aphorism from George Santayana, who said that people who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Afghanistan could not be conquered by Alexander the Great, but the Americans as well as the Russians attempted and both neglected.

Indian Gods and heroes fought their conflicts in heavens using vehicles that were piloted. The truth of these descriptions cannot simply be a coincidence. Specific explanations from Vyamanika Shastra seem technical and overly in-depth to be labeled as myths. were not dissimilar to modern jet propelled flying devices. Various texts quoted secrets regarding the procedures of the Vimanas, a few of which may be compared to the modern day use of Photography, Solar energy and Radar. These early flying devices were composed of special heat absorbing alloys named’ Soundalike Somaka and Mourthwika’. These texts also discussed at length about different types of lenses and mirrors installed for offensive and defensive goals. The weapon ‘Marika’ .
