The most basic 4 questions any Mahabharata researcher should answer before going public:
Q1: What is the Moonphase of the war timeline?
Starting at Shukla Paksha 13 and ending on Amavasya?
Yes or No
If No, don’t go further.
2. In simple words, what is the state of the Moon on the 14th war night post killing of Ghatotkach? Is it late Krishna Paksha crescent Moon? Yes or No? If No, don’t go further.
3. What is the Nakshatra of last day of the war? Can you show it to be Shravana or not? Yes or No? If No, don’t go further.
4. Can you show Balarama’s pilgrimage to start at Pushya and synchronise with 18th war day at Shravana in 42days?
Yes or No? If No, don’t go further.
Find any Mahabharata proposal which fixes a war timeline with Shravana on last day/19th day also acceptable as per text (Shalya Parva 33-5-6 and Amavasya (Drona Parva 159 and 161)
Only one year fits perfectly.. 3067BCE it’s that difficult.
