    "The oldest dinosaur types are known from rocks in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:country-region w:st="on">Argentina</st1:country-region> and <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Brazil</st1:place></st1:country-region> and
    are about 230 million years old. The most primitive of these types, Orator,
    was a small meat-eating dinosaur. Because Orator’s skeleton shows some advanced
    skeletal features, older dinosaurs may yet be found."
    According to Peeyush Agnihotri, "<st1:place w:st="on">Central India</st1:place> was the largest dinosaur
    nesting site in the world"
    Ashok Sahni, an eminent paleontologist from <st1:placeName w:st="on">Punjab</st1:placeName> <st1:placeType w:st="on">University</st1:placeType>, <st1:City w:st="on">Chandigarh</st1:City>,
    who has been associated with dinosaur studies in <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">India</st1:place></st1:country-region>, has an interesting anecdote
    to narrate. "In October 1982, when I was attending a seminar in Ahmedabad,
    a young Geological Survey of India (GSI) officer came to inquire about a spherical
    18 cm object from me. Such objects were apparently unearthed during the blasting
    operations of the then existing ACC cement factory at Balas nor and the "cannon
    balls", as they were commonly known, decorated the shelves of the mine
    manager’s office. We recognized the "cannon ball" to be dinosaurian
    egg and within a year’s time, GSI unearthed several hundreds of them from
    the area," he recalls.
    Sahni observes: "<st1:country-region w:st="on">India</st1:country-region> has the largest number of eggs and nests from a
    single time interval (68 to 65 million years ago) representing the Lament Formation
    sediments which are believed to have been deposited at the time of <st1:place w:st="on">Deccan</st1:place> volcanic
    activity. Other countries, such as <st1:country-region w:st="on">China</st1:country-region>, <st1:country-region w:st="on">Mongolia</st1:country-region> and the <st1:country-region w:st="on">USA</st1:country-region> have several
    horizons from which dinosaur eggs have been isolated, but not from a single
    formation, as in <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">India</st1:place></st1:country-region>. What actually counts in the preservation of eggs is
    really not how many eggs were laid but how many of these were preserved as fossils.
    The process of fossilization is selective and as we all know eggs tend to rot
    easily. For preservation of the Indian dinosaur eggs, it is believed that frequent
    flooding and covering of nests and eggs by sediments led to better preservation.
    There is evidence of flooding in the Lament sediments where nests have been
    found. On the surface on which the nests and eggs are exposed, we find pebbles
    of fairly large size, which could only have been brought there by flood waters."
    Prithiraj Chungkham, a gold medalist geologist and Senior Basin Researcher
    currently based in <st1:country-region w:st="on">Singapore</st1:country-region>, avers that dinosaurs could have traveled thousands
    of miles to nest or lay eggs in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">India</st1:country-region></st1:place>.

    Sanatana Dharma allows science and God to co-exist. According to the scriptures,
    Universe was created with the primal sound <st1:place w:st="on">OM</st1:place>, which is similar to the big
    bang theory of science.
    How come human remains are never found which 230million years are….
