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 have added a new section in my blog where I share my travel photographs along with my thoughts and observations, and I hope this will appeal to the readers.

If you would like to contact me, you are most welcome to leave a comment here or drop an email  at bibhumisra@gmail.com. You can also connect with me on

Thank You!

    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

  12. 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?

    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.

  13. 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.

      Delete
    2. Very True. Though it was disheartning to know that the Vimanika Shastra was a hoax.

      Really like your writing and approach.

  14. 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.

    3. I think its in the Epic of Gilgamesh - the gods of change came riding on balls of fire in the sky. Sounds like a menacing earth bound comet. A further research will lead you to a few gigantic meteor hit sites which you will be able to link to various Yug.

      A prelim report by a Geologist researcher identified burnt/melted rock surfaces of Various megalithic monuments in Egypt. They also showed it to be prominent along certain directional & trajectories. I will share the link if you desire. The description suggests of meteor shower of sorts.

      Delete
    4. Yes, "ball of fire" are mentioned in many places in the Sumerian legends. I am not aware of the research suggesting meteor showers in ancient Egypt, please share the link. It is now becoming quite clear that comet / meteor impacts take place quite regularly, and I believe these are responsible for the periodic yuga-ending cataclysms.

  15. 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.

    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.

  18. 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.

  22. Excellent article on Kali Yuga ! Can we expect Kalki avatar
    In near future , if Kali Yuga is coming to an end ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I am not sure if Kalki will take on a mortal form. As I have mentioned in some of my earlier comments, I think Kalki may come in a celestial form resembling a comet. In many texts, Kalki is described as being "comet-like", who will soar over the earth. A two-tailed comet does resemble a man on horseback. Besides, there is evidence of meteor and comet induced catastrophes during previous yuga transitions. So, we will have to wait and see what happens.

  23. Here is a good news for us, Bibhu. If you remember I described about a book named Voice of Eternity @ Smashwords.com. The writer has somehow made it free to download. I did it and to my surprise, it really contains important hidden knowledge that you mentioned as lost during last Yuga transition in one of your article. You can go through it now and expand your field of research. Good Luck!

I have always found the hundreds of thousands of years remaining of kali Yuga concept to be hopeless and unrealistic, there would be no life left here is this Yuaga carries on for several more hundred thousand years. Anyway, well researched and thank you for your efforts.

    1. Thanks Edward. I went through a similar phase of disillusionment with the inflated yuga numbers, before I started to work on a possible solution. Its always good to know from others that it makes sense to them. The yuga transition is not far away, and I think the changes in the environment will accelerate as we enter the period of transition.

Do you have that paper available somewhere? It will be super interesting if the dates you propose tie to the astronomical observations and the eclipses mentioned in the epic in the war period. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello,
      Thanks for leaving your comment. Great to know you found the article interesting. I have not done any research into the astronomical alignments during the war. I dont have a fixed date for the war, but a 300-year period from 3976 - 3676 BCE, with a high probability around c.3700 - 3800 BCE. Most of the astronomical alignments mentioned in the Mahabharata are routine alignments that take place every year. So that will not help me to pinpoint the exact date of the war. Besides, we do not even know if these alignments were the original ones mentioned by Vyasa or added later, since the Mahabharata has been greatly expanded (nearly 3 times) since the original version called Jaya.
      The occurrence of two eclipses (one lunar and one solar) within a 13-day period before the war is the only data-point which is somewhat infrequent, but even those take place multiple times in a century. I will need to check and find out how many of those took place in the period between 3976 - 3676 BCE, and see if that helps me in identifying some candidate dates. Thanks for your question.

    1. Hello, I just read about the upcoming Grand Solar Minimum from 2020 - 2070. I wasn't aware of this, so thanks for bringing it to my attention. It appears that a Grand Solar Minimum could result in cooler temperatures over a period of time, and lead to "mini ice age" scenarios in some places. In do not see that as a "catastrophic situation", as such. It might help to reverse the "global warming" trends that we are now seeing. From the perspective of the Yuga-ending cataclysms, it does not seem to be of much relevance.

  28. Hello sir... I have a question about the dating of Mahabharata and Dwarka city...I have read some articles of Dr. Pv vartak from Maharashtra..he has very strong archeological and astrological proofs dating Mahabharata to 5561BC and Ramayana to 7323BC...what do you think about that?..even in the bay of cambay in south Gujarat , there is archeological proof of city dating to 7000 to 9500 yr old ... plzzz reply..:)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you read my article on the Kali Yuga you will find that, as per the Greek and Roman historians, the Indians counted their kings from an ancient king called Dionysus, whom Sir William Jones identified as Rama. This puts the date of Rama (possibly the date of his passing away) at 6776 BC. If we assume that he lived around 200-250 years, then he would have been born at around 7000 BC. As far as I am aware, there is no archaeological proof of Rama's existence, and I personally have no faith in astrological calculations for they are based on a huge number of assumptions. It is true that we have found submerged cities in the Gulf of Cambay which have been dated to around 7500 BC. So, there is evidence of well-developed settlements in India at around 7000 - 7500 BC. My belief is that Rama lived at around 7000 BC.
