About Me



Hello. My name is Bibhu Dev Misra. I am a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur and the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Kolkata, and have been working as an Information Technology consultant for more than 15 years. I spent a number of years working in the UK and the US, for various multinational organizations, including the World Bank and the United Nations, before returning back to India.

I am now settled in Kolkata with my family, and working on a start-up venture. My primary passion, however, is exploring and writing about the mysteries of the past. Over the past decade and a half, I have read the works of a number of writers - Graham Hancock, Michael Cremo, Adrian Snodgrass, Joseph Campbell, Walter Cruttenden, Subhash Kak, David Frawley, to name just a few - and have been inspired by their researches to seek answers to a large body of mysterious knowledge left behind by our ancestors in the form of sacred texts, inexplicable artifacts, awe-inspiring architecture, cryptic symbols, and fantastic myths and legends. 

I traveled to many ancient sites around the world in order to gain a first hand experience of these remarkable places. For the past few years I have been writing articles on various topics of interest to me and publishing them on my blog. Some of  these articles have been published in different magazines and websites such as the New Dawn, Science to Sage, Nexus, Viewzone, Graham Hancock's website, Esamskriti, Waking Times, and others.

I would like to thank the readers of my articles, and I hope that you will continue to support me and show interest in my work. I greatly appreciate the feedback and comments left on my blog by the readers, and I try my best to respond to everyone. I am currently researching on  large number of inter-related topics, and for the foreseeable future, I shall continue writing articles, and if possible books, to share my thoughts, findings and observations

In addition to reading, travel, and writing my other interests are music, sports, and photography.

I hope that you will enjoy reading my blog.

If you would like to contact me, you are most welcome to leave a comment or drop an email  at bibhumisra@gmail.com.

Thank You!

  4. Hi,
    Absolutely agree that Kali Yuga is ending. Internet is an expression of Brahman and his nets. 2025 is near, lets see.

    1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I do not think anything specific will happen in 2025, though. We will simply enter a 300 year period of transition, and the process of change will accelerate. Let's wait and watch.

I also appreciate your courage to point out the inaccuracies made by our ancestors pertaining to Yugas. I have bookmarked your website and will be eagerly waiting for your upcoming writings.

  7. Balochistan and Ethiopia Sphinx article were great.

    Can you also find ancient time links to European Nations. I have come across these articles:

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/jaipur/Lithuanian-tribe-traces-Rajput-roots/articleshow/22503420.cms

    http://www.sutrajournal.com/sanskrit-in-croatia-from-sarasvati-to-hrvati-by-james-cooper


    Also read somewhere that Scandenevian nations are Skand Desh whose king was Kumbhakarna but this (Skand) part may not be even remotely correct, but still putting it here.

    Thanks

    1. Thanks for leaving your comments and for sharing the links. Glad to know that you liked the articles.
      Regarding the European connections - I have done a bit of research on the Indian links with the Irish, and have also identified certain connections with the Scandinavian countries, with respect to their mythology and traditions.
      Scandinavia could be derived from Skanda + Nabhi, i.e. the warriors who sprang from the navel of Skanda. However, these kind of phonetic derivations make any sense only if they are supported by more detailed explorations.
      Since the Indo-European languages are known to be related, what is most important, in my opinion, are the connections with respect to their art, myths and traditions.
      I do have plans to write about the Indo-European connections in future articles. However, due to time constraints, it might be a while before I get to it.
      Best Wishes,
      Bibhu
