The historical period when Vimanika Shastra was dictated by Subbaraya Shastry is between and The first two decades of XX century is a period where many concepts of Vymanika Sastras are absolutely foreigner to the science and technology of this period, that could be a proof of genuineness of material.

Its nice that you came up with this article and also presented some pictures. Most of them who some day look into to this would be more interested on Vaimanika Shastra. We would one day bring out the online version of the vaimanika shastra with the proper permissions from the book publisher. Enrico Baccarini. I was wondering where is the text that describes the engineering which can be used to build those airplanes?
You are doing good work. Got so many things running in my mind. Raghav, Vaimanika Shastra is not an art, but it is science. However with what ever we have, we are involving engineers and sanskrit scholars to have the proper translation of the existing text. Please feel free to contact me at pranavah vaimanika. We have certain materials such as Vaimanika prakaranam, Bruhad Vaimanika shastra, both has same text with little variants, the description to build an aircraft is available in this, however, due to lack of enough sanskrit and aeronautical knowledge together, we are not able to interpret most of the things given in the texts.
It would be great if engineers take up sanskrit as a language to be learnt so that we could understand and get the exact terms from the texts, we could go ahead with the work.

The existence of the text was revealed in by G. Josyer who asserted that it was written by Pandit Subbaraya Shastry — , who dictated it during the years — A Hindi translation was published in , while the Sanskrit text with an English translation was published in It contains shlokas in 8 chapters which Shastry claimed was psychically delivered to him by the ancient Hindu sage Bharadvaja. A study by aeronautical and mechanical engineering researchers at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore , in concluded that the aircraft described in the text were "poor concoctions" and that the author showed a complete lack of understanding of aeronautics. Regarding the "Rukma Vimana", the study noted, "If the craft is taken to mean what the drawing and the text say, it can be stated that the craft is a decided impossibility". Subbaraya Shastry was a mystic from Anekal , who was reputed to speak out verses slokas whenever he got inspiration, described by Josyer as "a walking lexicon gifted with occult perception".
