    That's an ancient article I unearthed again because I thought it was worth a discussion about this one...

    Does anybody know anything else apart from the ones mentioned in the articles?? Has anything tangible come out of it?? Also, have there been any press releases about this or is it a closely guarded secret???

    Utter crap.This news was from the time when Murli manohar Joshi was running the HRD ministry and when all sort of Pseudo science was being officially patronized in the name of reviving ancient Hindu glory(remember Jyostisa.sastra in University syallabi)

    If this project was even considered for funding ,that must have ended when Joshiji got the boot in 2004.If anybody has read 'Arthasastra' would know its a political treatise not a science journal.Its such embarrassment to all of us to see our historical/religious texts subject to such mockery.
