Chhattisgarh state department of archaeology and culture plans to seek help from Nasa and Isro for research on 10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs in Charama region in Kanker district in tribal Bastar region.
According to archaeologist JR Bhagat, these paintings have depicted aliens like those shown in Hollywood and Bollywood flicks. Located about 130km from Raipur, the caves come under village Chandeli and Gotitola.
"The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which still create curiosity among people and researchers. Extensive research is needed for further findings. Chhattisgarh presently doesn't have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject," Bhagat told TOI.

There are several beliefs among locals in these villages. While few worship the paintings, others narrate stories they have heard from ancestors about "rohela people" the small sized ones who used to land from sky in a round shaped flying object and take away one or two persons of village who never returned.
"The paintings are done in natural colours that have hardly faded despite the years. The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear features. Specially, the nose and mouth are missing. In few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits. We can't refute possibility of imagination by prehistoric men but humans usually fancy such things," the archaeologist said.

He added that it is a co-incidence that such ancient images appear to have sharp resemblance to UFOs shown in alien movies. "The fan-like antenna and three legs of vehicle's stand clearly show a similarity to UFO type craft," he said.
Other archaeologists would also be consulted for further verification.

Light saber, Jedi knights, maybe, last image. ping.
Thought you might be interested.
the science fiction of its day
Possible pre Tolkien eye of Sauron in the middle one.
anything on earth from a long time ago merely resembling how modern people imagine beings from other planets may look can be interpreted as being depictions of such beings even though many local factors and local abilities and local religious beliefs at the time of the paintings could have produced that resemblence while having nothing to do with physical beings from other worlds at all
modern people should not read too much into such images
their opinions about them may be more their own imginations than anything else
Large crowd of ragged looking aliens moving a big herd?
looks like it’s just an illustration of the border situation.
“The fan-like antenna and three legs of vehicle’s stand clearly show a similarity to UFO type craft,”
At least the last one I saw...right.
Now there you go again. How was the date determined?
Nope, not possible for humans 10,000 years ago to imagine what is depicted. They might have made up reasons for the things they saw/experienced, but the pictograms illustrate technology, not magic.
Those are recent drawings.
Yep. Stylized drawings are not evidence of aliens.
How would any of us know?
