Our ancestors were great in terms of knowledge whether that knowledge may be in the field of Mathematics, Science, Astronomy or Astrology. They excelled in every field. Most of the work done by the Indians was taken by the Europeans and Babylonians and they branded them as their own. One example is Pythagoras theorem which was conceptualized by Panini much more before Pythagoras but it is named after Pythagoras.
Let us now come to the main topic of this post. Our great sages gave the indications of extreme Kaliyuga more than two thousand years ago. They predicted that a Dark Age called Kaliyuga will come where crime and sins would be on their peak. Let us see what those indications are. These have been given in Linga Purana.
Thieves will become kings, and kings will be the thieves.
Rulers will confiscate property and use it badly.
They will cease to protect the people.
Base men who have gained a certain amount of learning (without having the virtues necessary for its use) will be esteemed as sages.
There will be many displaced persons, wandering from one country to another.
Predatory animals will be more violent.
Fetuses will be killed in the wombs of their mothers.
People will prefer to choose false ideas.
No one will be able to trust anyone else.
People will be envious.
There will be many children born whose life expectancy is no more than 16 years.
People suffering from hunger and fear will take refuge in "underground shelters."
Young girls will do trade in their virginity.
The god of clouds will be inconsistent in the distribution of the rains.
Shopkeepers will run dishonest businesses.
There will be many beggars and unemployed people.
Everyone will use hard and vulgar language.
Men will devote themselves to earning money; the richest will hold power.
The state leaders will no longer protect the people but, through taxes, will appropriate all wealth.
Water will be lacking.
Pre-cooked food will be readily available.
The fact that our food supply contains very little nutrition and is full of toxins also tells us something about the frequencies of Time we live in.
So we can see all the above indications of extreme Kaliyuga have already been fructified.
