This book seeks to rewrite the history of the world, particularly of the Indian subcontinent, based purely on multi-disciplinary scientific research. The planetary references in Valmiki Ramayan were actually seen from the given latitudes and longitudes around 5100 BC and these matched sequentially. See the slides depicting those sky views! The way in which archaeological, paleobotanical, oceanographic, geological, ecological and remote sensing research reports corroborate the astronomical dates is amazing! The book displays the sea level curve prepared by the Oceanographers confirming that submerged Ram Sethu was a walkable bridge in 5100 BC. See the curve! Recent genetic profiling of world populations corroborates that Dravidians and north Indians had common ancestors and indigenous civilization has constantly been developing in India for more than 10000 years, which supports the authenticity of genealogical charts found in ancient Indian texts. The book will persuade you to rethink if Ramayan and Mahabharat were merely the imagination of the poets or these contained some hard historical facts about our glorious past. The book contains following detailed scientific/academic papers. Past Meets the Present Leading to a Better Future- Text of the Inaugural Address by His Excellency Dr. A.P.J.
