Saroj Bala ji, first of all, my compliments on your hard work in establishing the historicity of our Itihaas. Archaeoastronomy is still a new field, and there will be many in the future who would be testing the available data points, the archaeoastronomical indicators in our scriptures. I would urge you to keep an open mind on the date. All research brings us forward, even the one that does not hit bulls-eye in the first try. It will be wrong to hitch one's wagon to the first date that came along, before it had even been proof-checked by others. I can understand your drive to find consensus, but we shouldn't build a consensus on something this important on a false basis if it can be shown as false sometime in the future. Really appreciate the efforts taken to bring out the dates of epic events.

The span of nakshatras streched from Pushya to Shravan, that is from deg. Punarvasu was also seen. Aairavat connotes an elephant, and it is possible that Scorpio was seen like an elephant showing its trunk.
The span of nakshatra's from Punarvasu to Sharavan is seen early in the morning of Krishna paksha of Pushya Lunar month. Sun-rise could also be seen. So he must have started the campaign in Kartika masa. One month, that of Margashirsha was spent in the cave of Swayamprabha. Some more time was spent in the search upto the South sea, after which Hanuman entered Lanka, possibly on Pushya Shuddha 14th.
Thus it highly probably that he returned on Pushya Paurnima or Pushya Krishna 1st. Had Seeta not accepted this offer, Ravana would have killed her in Hemant. Hemant is composed of 2 months.On Estimating The Date of Ramayana
Seeta therefore must have conveyed this to Hanuman before Hemant began, that is, in the season of Sharad. Thus Pushya lunar month coincided with the season of Sharad.
Ramayana Scientific Dating Wrong?
According to the above description, Mars was near Punarvasu and Pushya. It was noted that during the Lanka war, Mars was at deg. Naturally, since Mars many a time becomes stagnant, Mars would have been near Punarvasu and Pushya two months earlier. The distance from Kishkindha Vijayanagar to Hospet to the centre of Lanka is about miles. An army can travel about 20 miles a day, therefore accordingly, Rama's army would have taken a month to reach Lanka.
Even assuming a pessimistic speed of 30 miles per day, Hanuman may have covered the distance in 20 days. Also, it is known that the army of Vaanar tribe were searching for Seeta in many directions, and therefore, may have taken 2 months to reach Lanka. This army had started searching for Seeta in mid-Kartika, and would have reached Lanka in mid-Pausha. The assumption that Hanuman returned from Lanka in the month of Pausha therefore appears to be reasonable.
Institute of Scientific Research says it's possible to date events from Mahabharata, Ramayana
The Vanar army hurriedly returned to Kishkindha and could have spent 20 days in the interim and the date falls at Maagha Shuddha 5th. Rama marched to Lanka in one month and reached there on Phalguna Shuddha 5th 22nd Oct.

Subsequent three days were spent before Rama could cross the sea. Phalguna Shuddha 8th ended. Thereafter, starting on the 9th, Nala built a temporary bridge Seetu within 5 days.
On Phalgun Shuddha 14th 31st Oct. C , Rama's army crossed over to Lanka. Ravan also observed the approaching army from a tower, held a meeting with his ministers and deployed his army for defence. On Phalgun Krishna 1st 2nd November B. On Phalgun Krishna 2nd, Rama's army seiged the gates of Lanka.
Angada proceeded as Rama emmisary on a peace mission to Ravana's court. However, any peace proposal was rejected by Ravana and the next day Phal. The great war spanned 13 days and concluded on Phalgun Krishna Amavasya, with the death of Ravana. The very next day, Chaitra Shuddha 1st was celebrated as a Victory Day.

Scientific dating of ramayana
C was then Phalguna Amavasya. Valmiki states that Ravan came out for the last battle on the Amavasya day Yudh. The annual motion of Mars is In 14 years, it will progress by At the time of Rama's exile, Mars was at deg.
From Pushya Mars could cast its fourth-sight on Vishakha. So, the calculations presented so far seem to be correct. When was Ram born? When did the war in Mahabharata start? October 13, BC.
And when did Hanuman meet Sita in Ashok Vatika? September 12, BC. What historians, here and abroad, say is impossible to establish, has been accomplished by one Institute of Scientific Research — or so the institute claims in its ongoing 'Unique Exhibition on Cultural Continuity from Rig Veda to Robotics'.
And India's culture minister, Mahesh Sharma , says his ministry will take cognisance of this information and has sought a report. And how was this dating done? Hosted at Delhi's Lalit Kala Akademi, the institute's 'findings' have been submitted to the Union culture ministry. Sharma launched the exhibition on Thursday. The minister told ET: There have been allegations and questions raised about the very existence of Mahabharata and Ramayana. This exhibition gives scientific basis for all of this.
But they didn't attend the event.
