Though UFOs are a big deal today in the US and elsewhere, it seems in ancient times thousands of years back, South Asia was a hot bed of UFO activity.

According to the Indian scholar, there are too many accounts of flying machines called “Vimāna”, sci-fi weapons and weapons of mass destruction in the ancient Indian texts called the Vedas dated more than 4,000 B.C; from diverse sources.
Additionally there is literature that describes how these machines were built and how some of them could only fly in the atmosphere and others could engage in inter stellar travel.
The “Ramayana” which is considered as the “Bible for most Indians”, describes the flying car called the “Pushpaka Vimāna” that could fly through mind control.
