A high-ranking official in India is being ridiculed online for claiming that the internet and satellite technology was invented in ancient India. In Mahabharata, Sanjay was blind but he narrated what was happening in the battlefield to Dhritarashtra anyway.

While many right-wing thinkers earlier concluded that this was evidence of television technology, Mr Deb was convinced that it something even more advanced. "It means Internet was there, the satellites and that technology was there in this country at that time", he said, according to Times of India.

"Internet and satellite system had existed in India during lakhs of years ago".

Meghan Markle was 'meant to be royal': Paula Patton
The happy couple will Wednesday in Windsor Castle, a royal residence west of London dating back more than 900 years. Actress Paula Patton says she predicted that Meghan Markle would become a member of the royal family one day.

The claim did not go down well with some social media users, as they took to micro-blogging site Twitter, to express their displeasure. He's not alone, though: A fairly long list of Indian ministers in the current Hindu nationalist BJP government has claimed many modern-day scientific or technological achievements were invented many centuries ago.

Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb - who claimed that internet and satellite communications existed in India thousands of years ago - stuck to his guns today, directing a barb at the "narrow minded people who find it tough to believe this". In 2014, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told a gathering of doctors and medical staff at a Mumbai hospital that cosmetic surgery existed in ancient India.

Biplab Deb, who is the chief minister of the northeastern state of Tripura, cited an example from the ancient Hindu epic Mahabharata to prove his point, though not many people are buying it. The CM said he was proud that he was born in a country which had the "best communication system" and "best culture" in the whole world. "I want to repeat that we should accept the truth and should not get confused".
