Chandigarh, January 7: Associate Professor in the department of geology at Panjab University – Ashu Khosla – on Sunday stated that Lord Brahma was the “greatest scientist of this universe” and knew about dinosaurs. It even claimed Lord Brahma had well-documented them in Vedas.
Khosla while presenting his paper at 106th Indian Science Congress at Lovely Professional University in Phagwara stated that he had been researching the origin and existence of dinosaurs in India for more than 25 years. He presented his paper on topic ‘Biotic assemblages from the Deccan trap-associated sedimentary sequences of penninsular India’ at the venue too. Hanuman Chalisa During Brain Surgery!

While presenting his paper, he said, as quoted by The Indian Express, “There is nothing that Lord Brahma, who is the creator of this universe, did not know. He was completely aware of the existence of dinosaurs and even mentioned them in Vedas. Before anyone else in the world, it was Lord Brahma who discovered dinosaurs’ existence on earth. India was a hotspot for dinosaur evolution and breeding before extinction. A dinosaur named Rajasaurus had originated in India.”
The professor claimed that Americans and British took the concept of dinosaurs and got to know about them. He said, “Even though the dinosaurs had become extinct almost 6.5 crore years back, Lord Brahma must have got to know about them through his unmatched spiritual powers when he might have closed his eyes, while writing the Vedas. No one in this world will accept or digest it, but it is a truth that the origin of everything, including the dinosaurs is mentioned in Vedas. Even the word dinosaur has its origin in Sanskrit – ‘dino’ means terrible, it translates to ‘daayan’ (witch) and ‘saur’, which otherwise means lizard, is related to ‘asur’ (rakshas). So, everything that exists on earth is well-mentioned in Vedas.”
Comparing his discovery with the British excavators, he said, “When we found the remains of Rajasaurus in Gujarat in 2001 along the banks of river Narmada, we named it ‘Raja’ to signify ‘lion’ as it was a meat-eating dinosaur. It was believed that Rajasaurus was linked to Tyranosaurus, which had an origin in North America, but we proved that Rajasaurus was a new dinosaur and originated in India.”
Khosla was of the opinion that although the first remains of a dinosaur were found in the 1820s in India at Jabalpur by a British, it was Lord Brahma who knew about them. According to Khosla Vedas were written 25,000-30,000 years back, while dinosaurs became extinct 6.5 crore years back.
