Ancient did have spaceships and aircrafts...... in mythologies. Obviously not in real life.

Some ancient Sanskrit texts even describe how to build one, complete with descriptions on it's structural materials, propulsion system, vehicle control system and their uses. But these works are similar to star wars and star trek. The works of a dreamer. A dreamer way ahead of his time.

Maybe it wasn't ancient "Indians" but another far more advanced race of humanity that had the capability of flight. A race that once had great power over the ancient Indian peoples. The Dravidians were an ancient Indian people. They were eventually conquered by another people the Brahmans are related to.
The ability to fly could easily be confused with all travel upward. However, I doubt if the ancients actually were aware of the very big difference in objects operating in atmospheres and objects operating in space. Moreover, it might be easy to imitate the way an airplane is designed, yet not understand the actual means of propulsion or how this technology operates.

What makes you assume that Atlanteans did not provide the original designs copied into these ancient Indian Manuscripts. Somebody did.

Several problems here. Nobody can prove that Atlanteans ever existed and nobody can prove these manuscripts weren't made for the benefit of Indian royalty by a fantastic story teller. The human race needs to give itself a bit more credit for the ancient creations then it is currently giving itself.

The Atlanteans did not provide them. Time travelling ninjas did. I've said this before. Now if you don't believe me, disprove it.

There is no "University of Chandrigarh".
I think he is reffering to chandigarh capital of punjab, and the university would have been punjab university

Then why doesn't he say Panjab University? Can someone cite the good doctor and provide some academic references?
