In the other famaous epic Mahabharata which mentions war between the gods with deadly weapons. These weapons by some writers are even commented as nuclear. The description of the damage in the epic at first sense seems like a nuclear weapons.
"Vrishni and Andhaka races for instance are reduced to the ashes after using this weapons. Soldiers escaped to the rivers to save their life from the fire. Farms, houses, animals, people everything were burned as a result of a thunderbolt in the sky". This scenery exactly resembles what had happened in Hiroshima after atomic bomb.
