Blood rain in Kerala
On July 25, 2001, the people of Kottam and Idukki districts of Kerala felt like a normal summer day.
Suddenly a fierce sonic boom was heard and the sky was filled with bright light.
Shortly after that, the sky was covered with clouds and rain came down. However, this rain was not like the other five normal rains.
So how was this mysterious ghost rain? Seeing this, not only the people of Kerala but the whole world was apprehensive and worried!
At present, thanks to science, it is now possible to know many unknown things in the world.
Things that people thought were miraculous in the past can be explained by modern science.
But at a time when people are trying to control nature, there are still some things happening on earth that remind people that they do not know the good answer to all the events in this mysterious world.
The cause of the events is still shrouded in mystery to science.
The southern state of Kerala. Where at noon on July 25, 2001, a strange mystery suddenly appeared with rain
But the color of this rain was red like blood. That is why it is called blood rain. We know that rain does not have any color.
But eyewitnesses mentioned not only red but also yellow, green and black rain.
Seeing this rain, people fled from their homes in panic. This strange rain fell from the sky for about 20 minutes in a torrent.
As much as it rained all over the place, the leaves of the trees were shining and falling.
The bloodshed was reported from July 25 to September 23 in different parts of the district.
There have been several reports of bloodshed from the region since 1897.
And according to the latest news, between November 15 and December 26, 2012, such red rains have been reported in different parts of eastern and south central Sri Lanka and in different parts of the world including Siberia.
The color of
rainwater is green or yellow, usually due to the presence of acid or various particles in the environment.
But scientists have not yet been able to come up with such a simple explanation for the Blood rain in Kerala
From researchers to ordinary people, everyone has the same question – what is in the rain water that will cause the color to be red!
To find the answer to this question, scientists began experimenting with rainwater samples.
Studies have shown that there are about 9 million red particles in every milliliter of blood.
About 100 mg of solids are present in every liter of water.
In addition to the amount of blood that fell in Kerala, a total of about 50,000 kilograms of red particles fell to the ground.
Examination of the samples of the substance further revealed that their color is brown-red.
About 90 percent of these particles are spherical and the rest appear to be the remains of an object.
The water also contains a small amount of yellow or green particles.
Successfully identify substances present in rainwater
The substances present in the water of the Blood rain in Kerala have been successfully identified, but where did the substances come from? What is the source of this red substance?
Scientists at the Center for Earth Science Studies, or CESS, initially blamed the meteorite explosion for the rain.
Due to the eruption of the meteorite, several tons of meteorites merge with the clouds and fall with the rain.
But this reason was not very reasonable. This is because meteorites scattered over the stratosphere can never come down to the same place again and again with rain.
Scientists at CESS also noticed some spores in the rain sample a few days later.
So they handed over the responsibility of the investigation to the Tropical Botanical Gardens and Research Institute (TBGRI).
Observations were made by keeping the samples through suitable rearing for fungi and algae.
Following this observation, CESS and TBGRI released a report on behalf of the Government of India in November 2001. According to the report, the presence of excess lichens of the species Trentepohlia in the rains was blamed for the red color of the rains.
Subsequently again in the rainforest area
Observations show an abundance of lichens of the same species in the area.
In 2012, British scientist Milton Wainwright observed DNA in spores, and in 2015 some Austrian and Indian scientists identified spores as Trentepohlia annulata.
In 2003, Godfrey Lewis and Santosh Kumar, teachers at Mahatma Gandhi University in Kerala, gave a controversial explanation.
While reports from CESS and TBGRI say there is no connection between the sound heard before the red rain and the bright light, Lewis and Kumar say the answer lies in the mystery.
They cite meteorite eruptions as the reason for the red precipitation, and they use the Panspermia hypothesis to explain the presence of living cells.
Cells derived from blood are referred to as symbols of cosmic life.
Many have said that whenever there was bloodshed in Kerala, a volcano erupted in the Philippines.
The acetic material from that volcano reaches the Kerala region under the influence of equatorial winds. For which there is bloodshed in Kerala.
Also, according to many, the dust of the Arabian desert is responsible for this. The dust of that desert formed clouds in the sky of Kerala and from that such bloodshed.
Since it was later found out that there is no dust, this theory did not work.
So what is the reason for this strange rain was not revealed?
No, scientists have carried out one study after another, but the real cause of the Blood rain in Kerala,has not yet been uncovered. Mysteriously terrified, the Blood water remained a mystery even today.
