"All of us came from the same ancestors:" Abdul Kalam


Speaking at a national seminar on 'Scientific Dating of Ancient Events before 2000 BC', at New Delhi on 30th July, 2011, Scientist and Former President of India Sri A P J Abdul Kalam said, "...all of us have come into this land from the same ancestors and roots".

On our scientific tradition
"the bridge used by Rama to travel to Sri Lanka, is found submerged at the same location mentioned in Valmiki's writings, and as per estimates there has been a rise in the sea level during the last 7000 years roughly corresponding to 9 feet -- the same depth at which remains of Rama Sethu were found."

On his Janmabhoomi ...
"Rameswaram is known in intricate details to me as I travelled across the town delivering newspapers. In my eyes Gandhamanaparvatham appears from where Rama is supposed to have seen Sri Lanka. In front of me appears the famous Kothanda Ramar Temple of Rameshwaram. The central point is Ramanathaswamy Temple where we find the Siva linga which Lord Rama had worshipped."
