10 Bizzare Conspiracy Theories Of India That Are Tempting af

2338

Everybody loves a good conspiracy theory. The world has far too many of them – every assassination, genocide, war or any similar turn of events in the history of mankind brings along a new theory to confuse the hell out of innocent content consumers. Half the stories even make the newspaper or the TV show if the word “allegedly” didn’t exist? Conspiracy theories often offer neither the truth nor the lies, rather choosing to provide readers with the “grey” area, which lets speculate to their heart’s content.

So we decided to dig a little deeper in a bid to uncover some of the best Indian conspiracy theories we could find. They’ll tickle your curiosity as much as they tickled ours. 

 Taj Mahal or Tejomahalaya

Taj Mahal

Our favourite Indian love story about Emperor Shah Jahan who built the giant mausoleum of Taj Mahal in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, is riddled with conspiracy. According to Professor P.N. Oak, the Taj Mahal used to be a Shiva temple by the name of Tejo Mahalaya, which was later captured by the Mughal emperor and converted into the mausoleum we all know and love.


 Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s Disappearance

As sources speak, Bose died in a fatal plane crash in Taiwan in 1945. The real story was not followed by many newspapers but for what it’s worth, it is not the real story. Furthermore there was an Indian man who claimed to be Bose living in Faizabad, Ayodhya and he too passed away in 1985. He remembered quite a lot of details about Bose’s family and other relevant things and resembled a lot like him.


  Ashoka’s  Secret Society Of Nine Unknown Men

Some say that this group of nine elite men is a well kept myth, while some say that it is just a circulated story but as the truth comes out, Ashoka founded this society to preserve information which can be harmful for humanity. Every single one of them had immense knowledge about particular subjects, which they hid and carried in the form of books. These books are said to be passed on, but no one knows to whom or to where.


 Indus Valley

The Indus valley civilisation is perhaps India’s most ancient mystery. There are many unanswered questions about this great civilisation that was larger than the ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilisations combined. The secrets behind the identity of the people who created it and their puzzling 4000-year-old Indus pictographic script are yet to be discovered. Also, perhaps the most bewildering fact about this civilisation is that all its major sites went into sudden decline and disappeared more or less simultaneously. There are several theories about why this happened but none of them have been very conclusive.


  Indian who made the first airplane

We were taught in school that Wright Brothers made the first aeroplane in 1903. But according to the contradictory beliefs, Shivkar Talpade, an Indian scholar flew the first airplane called Marutsakha in 1895. There are no facts that prove Talpade’s achievement and therefore no recognition has been given to him and this will always stay a mystery.

 


 

 Agni V Missile Range

Agni V Missile Range

This theory is short and simple: When India built the Agni V missile, there was widespread anticipation about the, well, let’s call them “specifications” for a better understanding of the subject matter. However, in a shocking, disappointing move, no specifications were given. After a few days, the officials held a press conference and said that the Missile had a range of 5,500 kms only. This was bizarre because the previous version, Agni IV, had a similar range, which barely made the new one look like an upgrade.  But theorists (read: The Chinese) say that that missile actually has a range of 8,000 and Indian authorities are downplaying it so that they can use it as an “unexpected” surprise.


 India Still A Colony Of British

So, the theory goes something like this. By the Transfer of Power Agreement of 1947, India was declared an independent nation, but it also implied that India would continue to serve as a Commonwealth Nation. So all Commonwealth nations, India included, are still a colony of the Queen. It is said that the Queen does not need a visa to visit her colonies, and thus, this theory gained popularity and created quite a furore when the Queen visited India in 1997 without a visa. Furthermore, the theory also says that our national anthem “Jana Gana Mana” was originally written in honour of the Queen as the song only features territories that were under British India.


 Use Of Nuclear Warfare In Ancient India

Use Of Nuclear Warfare In Ancient India

This theory gained ground after radioactive ash was found around the city of Jodhpur in Rajasthan, and subsequently, a hidden ancient city was discovered just days later in 2010. Although the ash could have been the result of a natural nuclear fission reaction which is not so unique, the theory holds its ground mainly because of certain verses in Mahabharata which point to a war at that location.


  Bhagat Singh’s Execution

Indira Gandhi was a shrewd, cunning and dominant politician, who was known to fight back and win against all odds. She tormented politicians all over and was often called the Margaret Thatcher of India. But the simple question is, would a mother kill her own son? Well, that’s what this theory suggests. It says that Sanjay Gandhi, a brilliant pilot, was killed in a plane crash that was staged and orchestrated by his own mother. The reasoning behind this theory is interesting too. It says that Sanjay Gandhi, apparently, got too big for his shoes, and started blackmailing his own mother. She wasn’t one to take that from anyone and the rest, as they say, is history.
