Sadhu Dreams Of Buried Gold… UP Government Sends ASI Team To Start Digging


The excavation is triggered by a local sadhu or sage who says he dreamt that 1000 tonnes of gold are buried under the ruins of a palace

Yogi Swami Shobhan Sarkar says the gold he dreamt of belonged to a nineteenth-century ruler, Rao Ram Bux Singh. He wrote to the Reserve Bank of India, suggesting that the government use the treasure to help India recover from its economic slowdown.

The Archaeological Survey of India has sent a team of archaeologists to the village of Daundia Khera in Uttar Pradesh. They plan to dig two 100-square-metre blocks beside the palace.


*Rolls eyes. Bangs Head Against The Wall

And I have this recurring dream that the public - in general - and public officials - in specific – have somehow managed to grow a brain and are now capable of exhibiting a certain basic level of intelligence.

Well… one can always dream.
