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!

    6. I was searching for some information about our scriptures on Yuga cycles. I have found some information through a video posted by Eddie Page from US. He claims he is a Pleiadian.. May be . He has a facebook page called project aquarias. Bit weird it sounds but he is not human. he claims so. please have a look https://youtu.be/RxdMp1UKgO0

  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.

  6. Dear Bibhu,

    Just read your research on Kali yuga and Brahma's day. Excellent work on using numerous credible sources to distill the most logical conclusions. 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.

    Thanks and Regards,

  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

    1. Thanks for sharing the link to Dr.Vartak's work. I mentioned in one of the discussion points that Dr.Vartak's dating of Rama's birth to 7323 BCE is quite close to his date of passing away that I identified in my article i.e. 6776 BCE. I will try to read his entire work sometime.

  11. Hi Bibhu,
    Its about your Balochistan Sphinx article, Hope in India Northern part of people/politicians will not accept the existence of Dravidian race on India at the same they will say Aryan invasion is fake theory.
    But
    -what artifacts you have to correlate Baluchistan Sphinx with Palava architecture and chola architecture.
    -Which king constructed this temple in baluchistan.
    -Any carbon test to find the age?
    - Any scripts found in that structure?

    regards
    Thiyagu

    1. Hello Thiyagu, there has not yet been any archaeological survey at the site. The Pakistan government treats it as a natural formation without having conducted any study. The purpose of my article is to highlight that this monument possesses many signs of being a man-made structure, and therefore a full-scale survey is required. Therefore, none of your questions can be answered at the moment.

  12. Awesome work sir specially day & night of bramha, egypt's Jagannath connection
    . Sir what about vimanika shastra ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think the Vimanika Shastra is a hoax. It was written in the late 19th century by a person who said that it was "channelled" through him.
      If those were real specifications it should have been possible to make actual flying aircrafts based on the information.
      Besides, if you check Indian mythology you will find that all ancient "flying vehicles" were given to the humans by the "gods", and were not man-made. So, the question of a technology does not arise.

  13. Really amazing articles! I was truly astounded because I have always been interested in such things. I really hope to see more of your work in the future. The connections you've drawn is really cool to read about. So you did mention in the Kali Yuga article that the 2025 is the beginning of the end of the world (or the cycle). So do you have any predictions on what sort of things/events may cause this demise? For example, the rise of nuclear weapons is a real concern for many people and even believe that it could cause a World War 3. Nothing is concrete in terms of the future, but I just wanted to know your thoughts on the matter.

    Thanks again for the wonderful info!

    1. Hello, thanks for being appreciative of the articles. Regarding the end of the Kali Yuga, there is certainly a possibility of a large scale war which may cause widespread devastation. But, as I have mentioned in my latest article on the sinking of Dwaraka, it appears to me that comets and meteor impacts play a fundamental role in bringing about the yuga-ending devastations, and in cleaning and altering our biosphere, so that it becomes suitable for the next phase of civilization. So, I will say that the real change agents will come from outer space at the appropriate time.

  14. Dear Bibhu,
    Would like to hear your take on geoengineering (some say it's mere conspiracy theory) and its role in creating natural disasters and on eugenics where a robotic hybrid human species called 'Homo Evolutis') is being engineered. These changes if true, may very well hasten the Yuga collapse before any outer space event!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello Bharath,
      As far as I know geo-engineering is no longer a conspiracy theory. The CIA director has admitted to geo-engineering to change weather patterns. Eugenics and population control has also been a public statement made by some leaders, although when it comes to the hybrid human development I have not come across any specific info, although I wont be surprised if it is going on in full swing behind closed doors.
      Yes, such changes and many others, may take us towards greater disturbance and social evils. But the Yuga-ending cataclysms take place like clockwork every 2700 years. I dont it is under human control, and the real factors are probably cosmic in origin.

  16. Hi Bibhu
    Cycles of Yugas article has driven a lot of curiosity in me. Thank you so much for your work.
    I listen to Sadhguru (on YouTube) and he mentioned that we are in Dwaper yuga with precise math calculation. Can you share your thoughts on the same.

    1. I think when we look at the world today, with all its miseries and violence, there can be no doubt we are in the Kali Yuga. In fact, the level of consciousness right now is so low that it appears that we may have reached the very depths of the Kali Yuga. Therefore, I find it difficult to accept that we are in the Dwapara Yuga, when the spiritual, mental and physical abilities of people were very different, as a reading of the Mahabharata will tell you.

  17. Just read Ur article on the Yugas. It does make sense. Will be re-reading it again, as I take time to understand them. I need a clarification. U have mentioned that Buddha was born around 629 BC. But I have read that ADI Shankaracharya was born around 607 BC and so Buddha was born much earlier. I need evidence regarding the same to verify the authenticity of either one. Can u please look into it?

    1. As per the traditional Buddhist beliefs, Gautama Buddha was born in 623 BC in Lumbini. For instance, this UNESCO link on Lumbini mentions 623 BC as the birth date: https://whc.unesco.org/en/list/666
      Most scholars however date his birth to around 563 BC.
      Regarding Shankara there is an argument that he was born in the 5th century BC. This is a controversial topic with arguments on both sides. However, irrespective of when Shankara was born, I do not think it has a bearing on the birth and life of Buddha.

  18. Hello!

    Have you heard about these mysterious horsemen-statues as is written about in this article below:

    https://scroll.in/magazine/872541/who-left-these-mysterious-sculptures-of-horsemen-around-the-pir-panjal-range?fbclid=IwAR3JSprUNZfJ5sOAwOAP60rK04WqAS1aWxedcAKWDgnO3j4Rc0UPqCv8oXg

    Is it something you are aware of and would you perhaps consider writing anything about these ancient artifacts?

    1. I had read about these mysterious sculptures a while back and had shared it on my facebook page. As of now, I do not have any specific thoughts on who could have made them and when, which is why I haven't done an article on it. If I do get some ideas in future I'll surely consider writing about them.

    1. Thanks for your note. I really wish more researchers would start exploring the Gond connection more seriously. I have pointed out in some of my other articles that there are interesting overlaps between Gond folklore and traditions, and the imagery on some of the Indus seals.
