An Indian Civilizational Perspective

UFO in Kolkatta and Scientist's double-speak

Scientists these days have issues with things beyond their minds and knowledge. First they claim it is natural.. then it is unnatural and a trickery and media reports it as if the scientist has proved the “mysterious phenomenon” wrong! Kolkatta, apparently was visited by the friendly neighborhood UFO. A guy captured the thing. Now, he doesnt know what it was.. nor does anyone. But instead of wishing it away and give “some” explanation, it would probably benefit if someone could try to go behind the reasons. Here are the statements of the M.P. Birla Planetarium director Debprosad Duari:

    • “The images as shown on television channels have to be taken with a pinch of salt. They do not appear to be unidentified objects as claimed by some residents, but seem to be an optical illusion – a result of cloud reflecting city lights, a phenomenon than can be caused by refraction of light. It does not appear to be a natural phenomenon,”

    • “From what I can understand, it could just be digital trickery as no natural phenomenon can last that long and change its colour and shape so rapidly,”

Ok, so what is it that this dude is saying? Was it or was it not? Is optical illusion an “unnatural phenomenon”?? And UFOs are some kind of “natural Phenomenon”?? What the heck is he saying? I would have thought he missed an “un” before natural in his first statement…. the statements are so asinine that they are humorous!

While the guy, Farhan Akhtar (apparently no relation to the Bollywood director, I guess) had this to say on his experience:


….claimed to have captured the bright multi-coloured object from his 10th floor flat at Kalikapur in east Kolkata around 3.20 a.m. Monday. He said the phenomenon lasted for around three hours and disappeared when daylight appeared.

    Sir,
    I am Farhan Akhtar, working for H & R Johnson (I) Ltd as Dy.General Manger-Sales,based in Kolkata.Sir,I am the same person who have very important and very exclusive video coverage of unknown object i have seen in the sky at about 3.20 morning on 29th October 2007.
    I have very clear and focused pictures of that object. I have observed that mysterious object till 6.30 in the morning and could shoot it till 5.40 am only due to sun light obstruction.
    The object has taken many shapes such as circular,pyramid,capsule and a straight line.It was emitting colourful flames some time green,blue and yellow.
    Sir,I have observed the same on 30th and 31st also but this time no changes in shapes.Only change is of the colour which turns blue the next day.I am really feeling very sorry about the comments of Dr. Duari.For your information that day there was no clouds and sky was absolutely clear and hence chance of optical illusion by clouds as mentioned by Dr.Duari.
    Sir,I have much more to express about my observation regarding this episode.My only intention is to send the captured pictures to the right hand for further studies and conclusion.
    Sir,I tried to do so at local level at Kolkata but as I am not much familiar to the town and people I could not get the authentic person to whom i can hand over the original pictures. Please guide me how to go about it.
