Later on, Peter Higgs rewrite this theory Got Noble Prize.
Learning about Hindu Mythology and science can help us see how old stories connect to what we know about science now.

Use of nuclear weapons

Some historians claim that there is a possibility of nuclear weapons, used in the war of Mahabharata or post-war. The fire of confusion was even more ignited by the recent discoveries.
