    A seer's dream has set the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) on an unprecedented treasure-hunt in a remote village in Uttar Pradesh province of India.

    Following the information, the ASI reached Daundia Khera this weekend to dig out the lost treasure. It has already began its survey for the excavation work. "The excavation will be started by the end of this month. The gold was buried there by the ancestors of Raja Baksh Singh," Swami Om Jee, who claims to be a disciple of Sarkar, said. Although District Magistrate Vijay Kiran anand avoided mentioning any sadhu's role in the ASI survey of the area, he said he had received a letter stating that excavation was likely to take place. "The Geological Survey of India had stated in a letter that some valuables may be there inside the earth. This is the reason that the ASI wants to start some excavation work. But there will be a representative from the state government when this excavation starts. I have written to the government about it," he said.

    Even though the truth about the gold bounty is yet to be established, it has already generated a fair share of claims and demands from locals and others. Villagers are now demanding that the local youngsters be provided with government jobs if the ASI succeeds in recovering the gold. "We want the government to spend 20 per cent of the wealth that the ASI recovers on the development of the village. We need a hospital and an engineering college in our village. The government must also declare the village an industrial area," village head Ajay Pal Singh said. Meanwhile, one Chandi Veer Pratap Singh met the district magistrate on Saturday and claimed that he is a descendant of Baksh Singh. "I want the government to form a committee to supervise the excavation and give us a share in whatever is found there," he demanded.

    Not to be left behind, the local legislator claimed the area will be developed as a tourist destination. "The state government will soon approve Rs 3.5 crore to develop the area as a tourist spot. The king was killed while fighting the British forces in 1857. His sacrifice must be recognised," Kuldeep Singh Sengar, Samajwadi Party MLA from Bhagwatnagar, said.

    I used to hear this story in my childhood... never thought it could be so effectively implemented... lolhere goes the story...

    So all good for that remote village, it will have the land cultivated and there might as well finally be electricity, water, concrete roads and what not! Maybe we could trace that Mahapurakh's roots in that village... :grinningkaur:

    That is just too funny to be funny, Thanks Admin ji. When will I acquire the sharpness of intellect of Vincent and the Baba ji? Life would be so much easier.
