Hey guys! In the previous episode, the tribes in the forest told me I could learn more about the Nagas or Valaiyar if I could find a giant split rock within a 100 mile radius. They had heard about the split rock from their ancestors, from their previous generations, but they had no idea where this is actually located. I could find several giant split rocks around the world, when I performed a google search but I could find anything online, within the 100 miles radius from Javvadhu hills. So I am going to have to start searching, by physically exploring the 100 mile radius.
The search is taking me far and wide, I am exploring some of the very remote parts of the world, where there is nothing, no trees, no buildings and no human population. Will I find this giant split rock somewhere here? I see no trace of any rock nearby. I have been searching for many days and then I stumbled on something very interesting. Remember the tribes referred to the beings as Valaiyar? There are places named after the Valaiyar, there are 2 villages called Kilvaalai and Melvaalai, and people claim that the Gods, the Valaiyar began their first contact and communication with humans here, and set up these 2 villages.
This is the village of Kilvalai, and locals say that the split rock is located somewhere here in this rocky area. They refer to the split rock as Rathakal which means ‘Blood Stone’ in Tamil Language and tell me a strange story which I will tell you in a minute. And then suddenly, in a distance, I see a gigantic rock cut in half, split as though by divine intervention. There is no doubt that this is the rock the tribes were talking about . More importantly, we can see a metal fence in the middle of nowhere at the base of the rock. This is a good sign. Something important must be there, this is why they have put a large fence around it.
Of course, geologists will claim the rock split by natural means, but is it really a natural occurrence? Or are we simply convincing ourselves that it is natural because it is impossible for human beings to do this? Was it split using some kind of advanced technology, by the Valaiyar or Nagas? If we look at it from the top, it looks like a clean cut, as though somebody cut a loaf of bread into 2 halves, it must have been so easy to do this. The cut looks so smooth, it is unlikely the split happened by natural means. It is a very unique experience to walk in between these giant split rocks, I can’t explain it with words. From the ground, the rock looks truly gigantic, it can be used as a shelter, a place to rest or sleep. I feel like an ant stuck between 2 slices of bread. Was it some kind a safe keeping place to hide from others or for doing secretive things?
This whole structure is about 50 feet tall and 60 feet wide, the 2 pieces look like wings of a large bird. The villagers have strange stories about them. They call this blood stone, because they claim there is a secret opening at the top of the rock, which is covered by a rock lid and blood oozes out of this opening from time to time.
If we observe the rock closely, we can see that it does seem to have traces of reddish liquid, it almost looks like engine oil. Rocks do hold water and sometimes release the water along with other particles, which is probably why locals think it is blood and call it blood stone. But what is surprising is that, there is something on top which looks like a lid covering an opening. The problem is, there is no way villagers could have climbed this and seen what is on top. I am able to show you this because I use a drone. How do the locals know about this lid even though they have never seen it? More importantly, how do the tribes who live in Javvadhu hills, who have never come out of the forest know about the split rock?
