#1. An Indian invented airplanes

indian conspiracy theories Shivkar Talpade

Indian scientist, Shivkar Bapuji Talpade of Mumbai, is said to have invented the first-ever aircraft, eight years before the Wright brothers. In fact, the 2015 Bollywood movie, ‘Hawaizaada’ starring Ayushmann Khurrana, is based on his story.

It is suggested that the Maharaj of Baroda was funding the entire project, and Talpade was able to produce an aircraft that had four mercury-powered containers acting as engines. The aircraft is believed to have flown to the height of 1500 feet, before it came crashing down. The project was later stopped because the British government warned the Maharaja against it.

#2. Range of Agni-V

The missile, Agni-V was a big project for India. The entire nation was in awe to know about its specification. There was no declaration as such, but in a conference it was said that the missile had a range of 5,500 km. It came as a shock to everyone as it seemed to be nothing like an upgraded version of its previous set.

If sources are to be believed, the new missile has a range of 8,000 km, but it was kept as a secret so as to mislead other nations. Following what has happened to Indian scientific projects in the past, this was a wise decision.

#3. Tsunami was not a natural disaster

Tsunami, 2004, that took many lives, was not a natural disaster after all. During World War II, USA and New Zealand tested various nuclear bombs that would have created electromagnetic waves causing Tsunami. This in turn, would wipe off the coastal cities at one go. The experiment was a success, but was never executed to fulfill its purpose.

After 70 years, conspiracy theorists believe that the Tsunami that hit in 2004 was a late result of these tests that were carried on near New Zealand.

#4. The secret society of ‘Nine Unknown Men’

Samrat Ashoka was a great warrior king who transformed completely at the sight of bloodshed after his victory in a battle. It disturbed him to such an extent that he left all his practices, and turned towards Buddhism. He did not want any other soul to suffer, so he formed a secret society of nine men to guard the nine books that were written for the safety of humanity.

‘The Nine Unknown Men’ were supposed to have secret knowledge of microbiology, alchemy, psychology, communication (with extraterrestrial too), cosmology, sociology, vimanas, light and technology. These nine books are supposed to contain some supernatural facts too. Ashoka formed this covenant around 270 B.C, and it is believed to exist even today!

#5. Is India still a colony?

As India was a commonwealth country, Queen Victoria had the right to visit it without a visa. But, after India gained independence in 1947, this right was taken away from her. What is weird is that Elizabeth visited India in 1997 without a visa, which clearly stated her dominance over the country.

The Declaration of the Independence of India stated that the rule over the country would be transferred from Britain to India, but India will still be a part of the commonwealth. Victoria’s visit, sans a visa, has proved that we are still not completely free.

#6. Is Taj Mahal a temple?

Taj Mahal was built by the Mughal king, Shah Jahan in the fond memory of his late wife, Mumtaz. This is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and is regarded as a symbol of love. The history of its existence changed when Prof. P.N. Oak came up with a very different theory.

He exclaims that the name Taj Mahal has nothing to do with Mumtaz Mahal, and is a derivative of the name Tejo Mahalaya’. According to him, Taj Mahal was a temple of Lord Shiva under the then king of Jaipur, and Shah Jahan forced him to surrender it. He also insists that the love story of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz is nothing but a fairytale.

#7. Angry birds of Jatinga

Birds are considered to be very peaceful, but the birds of Jatinga, a village located in Dima Hasao district, 330 km away from Guwahati, Assam  are nothing like that. Every year from September to November, the migratory birds kill themselves.

Between 7-10 pm, these birds come shooting from the sky and bring their own death by crashing into buildings and trees. This phenomenon is really mysterious and has been taking place from years.

#8. The nuclear attack in ancient India

Early scriptures and architecture suggests that India was technologically well-advanced. Konark temple is one such example because it is a tangible asset to us. But, what about the unknown phenomena? If conspiracy theorists are to be believed, nuclear energy was transferred to the Earth either from divine beings or ancient aliens. One such example is, the use of this power during Mahabharata.

Because of the atomic attacks that Rajasthan suffered during Mahabharata, about 8-12 millennia ago, the soil of the place still shows a high level of radiation. A large number of people from this area, suffer from cancer and birth defects because of this.
