Somewhere in Chhattisgarh....

Chhattisgarh government archaeologist J R Bhagat may have stumbled upon a startling discovery: He and his team have found cave paintings in Kanker district of Bastar which they believe depict UFOs and aliens.
The paintings are said to be of the same vintage as those in Bhimbetka, declared a world heritage site in 2003. Some of the paintings found in the Bhimbetka rock shelters are roughly 30,000 years old. Bhimbetka was first mentioned in 1888 as a Buddhist site, from information obtained from local adivasis.
Rakesh Chaturvedi, director, Chhattisgarh department of archaeology, said he plans to write to Isro and Nasa for further research. The caves were found in Chandeli and Gotitola villages, roughly 130 km from Raipur.
“The findings suggest humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets. Extensive research is needed for further findings. Chhattisgarh doesn’t have experts who can give clarity on the subject,” Bhagat said. Other archaeologists would also be consulted for further verification, he said.
While some villagers are known to worship these paintings, others narrate stories they’ve heard from their ancestors about “rohela people” — or small-sized ones — who used to land from the sky in discshaped objects and take away the odd villager who never returned. “The paintings are in natural colours that haven't faded despite the passage of time. The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear features. Their noses and mouths are missing. In some paintings they are seen wearing garments resembling space suits. We cannot refute the possibility of imagination by prehistoric men who lived here,” the archaeologist said. Bhagat added it might be a coincidence that these ancient images resemble UFOs shown in alien movies. “The fan-like antenna and three legs of the vehicle’s stand clearly show a similarity with UFOs in popular imagination,” he added.
