The saga of really unique and bizarre things said by the Indian Ministers is forever and its known by all. While a few days back, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor introduced a new word ‘’lalochezia” on Twitter, came in a news to the astonishment of all that the Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb has said that Internet and satellite communication existed during the ‘Mahabharata’ period.
While speaking at a public function in Agartala, Deb asserted that it is wrong to say that it was Americans and Europeans who invented the Internet. In fact, he added that the Internet was invented “lakhs of years ago” and that the technology and satellites were present during the period of Mahabharata.
“Many may not believe and completely ignore the fact, but if the Internet was not there, how Sanjay, could see the 18-day epic war in Kurukshetra and describe it to the blind king Dhritarashtra? It means the Internet was there, the satellites and the technology was there in this country at that time,” Deb was quoted as saying at the public event. Elaborating, the BJP leader also said that the European nations and the United States may claim that it is their invention, but it is actually India`s technology.
