'Ram Setu' Between India And Sri Lanka Is Man-Made, Shows Science Channel

This question millions of Indians have been asking for many years! "This is what the BJP has been saying all along", Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju said here.

The latest analysis done by the scientists give weight to the claims made in Hindu mythological text in the Ramayana that says Ram Setu, bridge joining India and Sri Lanka, was made under the guidance of lord Rama.

A promo of the show by the channel claims that the bridge may have been built by humans and may not be a natural formation.

U.S. television channel show cited scientists to state that the Ram Setu, that joins India and Sri Lanka, is not a natural incident, but is man-made. The promo explains that the rocks connecting India and Sri Lanka are sitting on a sandbar, also known as a shoal and the investigators believe that the sandbar is natural, but the stones sitting on top of that sandbar, are not.

Citing images from a Nasa satellite, the show quotes American archaeologists who say the 50-km stretch, also called the Adam's bridge, is man-made. "The rocks on top of the sand actually predate the sand, so there is more to this story", said Chelsea Rose, historical archaeologist and adjunct faculty member at Southern Oregon University. In fact, geologist Dr Alan Lester believes that the stones were brought from afar and set atop the sandbar island chain. Ram Setu has been in the centre of a controversy since the UPA-1 government in 2005 proposed the Sethusamudram shipping canal project that would have required dredging the area.
