About the Book :
The book ‘When did the Mahabharata war Happen?: The Mystery of Arundhati’ did an objective testing of the astronomy evidence (215+), internal to the Mahabharata text, which lead the author to 5561 BCE as the year of the Mahabharata war. Arundhati-Vasistha (AV) observation was decisive in falsification of 96%+ of the existing claims for the year of the Mahabharata war as per the author
Some researchers questioned the Mahabharata evidence itself that asserted the duration of Bhishma on the bed of arrows for more than 92 days. What these researchers did not realize is that the very details of Bhishma Nirvana provide evidence that not only corroborates inference of AV observation but also strengthens 5561 BCE as the year of the Mahabharata war.
In this book, Nilesh Oak employs 300+ specific astronomy and associated observations from the Mahabharata text and tested them with the scientific acumen and logical reasoning to arrive at 5561 BCE as the year of the Mahabharata war. The book describes evidence that asserts the impossibility of the Mahabharata war anytime after 4700 BCE (Bhishma Nirvana + Lunar calendar evidence), or 5125 BCE (sensitivity analysis).
