The book narrates the biography of Lord Ram with exact dates of important events, depicting corresponding sky views and weaving other supporting scientific evidences into the story told by Maharshi Valmiki. It moves Ramayan from the domain of mythology to the realm of History.
The book provides credible and scientific answers to the questions —whether Shri Ram was actually born? Whether he had actually travelled from Ayodhya to Lanka to save millions of noble people from the atrocities of ignoble? Whether he had really set the example of an ideal welfare state? 
Methodology adopted is path breaking and futuristic! All astronomical references were extracted sequentially from Ramayan. The corresponding skyviews were generated using Plane-tarium & Stellarium softwares. Readers can enjoy watching how the sky looked bright with five planets in their exalted positions when Shri Ram was born. 
Evidences from archaeology & archaeobotany, geology & oceanography, remote sensing & genetic studies have also been beautifully woven into the story to support this astronomical date sequence. Beautiful pictures of Setu, Sea Level Curve and of many excavated articles mentioned in Ramayan have been made a part of the book.

The Author

Smt. Saroj Bala

Saroj Bala had distinguished herself as an officer of the Indian Revenue Service. She holds degrees in Law and Political Science. A series of inexplicable events in the beginning of 21' century changed the course of her life. She plunged herself whole-heartedly into multi-disciplinary scientific research to ascertain about the historicity and antiquity of Vedas and Epics. She remained the Director of the Institute of Scientific Research on Vedas during 2009 to 2017. 
Her first book entitled "Historicity of Vedic and Ramayan Eras: Scientific Evidences from the Depths of Oceans to the Heights of Skies" was published in 2012. She is widely accepted as a genuine scientific researcher on the subject. 
G.J. University of Science & Technology, Hisar conferred the degree of Doctor of Science on her for this research. She has made presentations on the subject in several universities. Most of the TV channels have been telecasting her comments as an Expert on this subject. 
The research methodology adopted by her is extremely credible. She extracts all astronomical references sequentially from Vedas and Epics and then generates the corresponding skyviews using Planetarium softwares. Supporting evidences from archaeology and palaeobotany, geography and geology, oceanography and ecology, remote sensing and genetic studies are also beautifully woven into the story. 
Before the present publication 'Ramayan Retold with Scientific Evidences' her last book titled 'Ramayan ki Kahani, Vigyan ki Jubani' was released in October 2018. Currently she is working on "Mahabharat Retold with Scientific Evidences".
