Who doesn’t dream of Treasure?
And if you are going to dream of Treasure, why not $50 Billion in Treasure? Oh, I forgot to mention, it is not your dream, but the dream of your holy man! It’s like to Pope saying God came to me and told me where $50 Billion is stashed.
Well that is just what happened in India.
Archaeologists began digging for treasure beneath a 19th century fort in northern India on Friday, after a popular Hindu holy man said a former king appeared to him in a dream and told him of a nearly $50 billion cache.
The treasure hunt began after Hindu swami Shobhan Sarkar relayed his dream to an Indian government minister who was visiting the swami’s ashram last month.
The swami said the spirit of King Rao Ram Baksh Singh, who was hanged in 1858 after rising up against British colonial forces, told him to take care of the 1,000-ton treasure hidden under the late king’s fort in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh.
Indian geological and archaeological officials surveyed the area Sunday and found evidence of heavy metal about 20 meters (66 feet) underground, District Magistrate Vijay Karan Anand said. Digging would the only way to confirm which type of metal.
The Archaeological Survey of India said it would begin digging under a temple contained within the ruins of the old fort.
