Malhotra, Dr. Ashok
Dr. Ashok Malhotra (1950- ) is a professor of engineering who has authored a number of books on engineering and education. In addition he has subscribed to a number of Internet forums outlining his views(a) on Atlantis. He contends that the Atlantis tale originated in the Indus Valley region with the submergence of the city of Dwarka(g). Subsequently, survivors brought the story to Sumeria from where it was eventually carried to Egypt(h) and then transmitted to Solon with understandable modifications given its age, distance travelled and several translations. Incidentally, a wooden block was recovered from the sunken remains of Dwarka in 2007 and so a definitive date for its inundation should soon be available.
Malhotra, has given a further exposition of his Atlantis theory in a September 2013 posting on his website(c). He offers further theories on his other website(d) including a suggestion that the builders of Stonehenge came from Armenia(e), which ties in with a very ancient megalithic site of Karahunj also known as Zorats Karer in Armenia(f).
