Looking for the Rama nation

Every search for Rama takes one to the Indus Valley civilisation. Why were the cities (towns?) of the Valley vacated? One explanation, the traditional one, is that one of the major branches of the River Indus changed its banks, leaving the people somewhat dry. Why would any river shift its path? Obviously because of a major earthquake. Yet, I have found no mention of such an earthquake.

A more recent attempted explanation refers to an atomic explosion or two. So, here we go with that claimed war between Rama and Atlantis; and how, Atlantis had destroyed Rama through atomic weaponry. It is claimed that very high levels of radiation have been found in Rajasthan, in particular in the Thar Desert.

If Rama was spread all over what is known as India today, should not there be some evidence of an atomic holocaust beyond Rajasthan? Indeed, why assume that the Indus Valley culture represented the Rama civilisation? Here are some extracts from ‘Ancient city found in India, irradiated from atomic blast’ in veda.wikidot.com.

“Radiation still so intense, the area is highly dangerous. A heavy layer of radioactive ash in Rajasthan, India, covers a three-square mile area, ten miles west of Jodhpur. … Scientists have unearthed an ancient city where evidence shows an atomic blast dating back thousands of years, from 8,000 to 12,000 years, destroyed most of the buildings and probably a half-million people.”

This claim would put to rest the theory of the Indus changing beds.

“When excavations of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro reached the street level, they discovered skeletons scattered about the cities, many holding hands and sprawling in the streets as if some instant, horrible doom had taken place. People were just lying, unburied, in the streets of the city. And these skeletons are thousands of years old, even by traditional archaeological standards. What could cause such a thing? Why did the bodies not decay or get eaten by wild animals? Furthermore, there is no apparent cause of a physically violent death.”

Was this how Rama ended? This would have happened after the Universal Deluge of about 13,000 years ago which ended that tragic cosmic catastrophe, which is said to have destroyed almost 95% of all life on Earth.

How then did the mythical Atlantis and Rama cultures become established? How did they develop such advanced technologies?
