3 of the most interesting Indian conspiracy theories

1. The Nine Unknown Men

What is it?
The society of the nine unknown men is a secret society created in around 270 BCE by Mauryan Emperor Ashoka. When Ashoka was disgusted after the killings of the Kalinga War, he wanted some days of peace where he discovered secrets about the human life that was preserved to nine men in nine books, all sworn to secrecy.

What did the Nine Unknown Men do?
Their function was to preserve the secret information which would be too dangerous in the hands of the person who doesn’t have enough knowledge. These books held so much power that if used incorrectly, could destroy mankind. Some of these books are also said to hold the secrets of time travel and anti-gravity.

Apparently, the unknown men are scattered all across the world, some of them, holding very important positions. The suspected members of the group include the very influential pope of the 10th century, Pope Sylvester II and Vikram Sarabhai, who created India’s space program.

2. Deaths of Lal Bahadur Shastri & Dr. Homi Bhabha

Doesn’t it seem odd that the death of Lal Bahadur Shastri, was followed by the death of Dr. Homi Bhabha, 13 days later? Dr. Bhabha was the chairman of India’s atomic energy commission. This was again followed by the death of a nuclear scientist, a young prodigy genius (who was unnamed) in two years and then the mysterious death of Dr. Vikram Sarabhai who was the Chairman of India’s Atomic energy commission, five years later under ‘mysterious circumstances’?

There was no post-mortem done on Lal Bahadur Shastri as it was claimed as a heart attack. His son had marked some blue spots on his father’s body and cuts on his abdomen, but his questions were left unanswered. A journalist named Gregory Douglas had interviewed CIA agent Robert Crowley who confirmed that the death of Lal Bahadur Shastri and Dr. Homi Bhabha was the work of the CIA. However, the other two deaths remain unconfirmed. Apparently, USA had gotten cautious of India emerging as a nuclear state.

3. Indian UFO Base on Indo-China Border

Kongka La is a low ridge pass, in the dubious India-China border in the Himalayas. The north-eastern Chinese part is called Aksai Chin and the south-west India part is known as Ladakh. India and China had fought a major war here in 1962. According to a few local people from the Indian and Chinese sites, this is where the UFOs are seen coming from.

The UFO base is in this region and apparently, the Indian and the Chinese government know about the same. The two countries do not patrol this area of the border. Many of the thrill-seeking pilgrims, that often come to pilgrim in the area wanted to look into the site. First, they were turned back by the Chinese government. When they tried approaching the side from the Indian side, the Indian border patrol also turned them down. They also had access and permit to travel between both the countries.
