Rama Sethu – Valmiki Ramayana and Geologists

The Valmiki Ramayana, gives details of the Rama Sethu ( or Rama’s bridge ) in 85 shlokas in the Yuddha Kanda. Unfortunately, our Itihaasas ( epics ) are dismissed as Myths by so-called “Eminent Historians” . They specialize in demeaning our nation and its heritage. Strangely, they had no problem in calling it Adam’s bridge but Rama Sethu is a big NO.

Now that a popular Science Channel has broadcasted that Geologists confirm that the bridge is man-made, hope some good sense prevails among Indian historians and they remove their colonial glasses.

A few shlokas from Yuddha Kanda are below wherein the construction of Rama Sethu begins…
