Aiyer had published a previous paper in the same journal fixing the date of the beginning of the Kaliyuga from four different sources:. Aiyer concluded that the Kaliyuga began with the winter solstice immediately preceding the commencement of the Kollam Andu, or at the end of B. The Mahabharata War, he proposes, was fought a few years before the beginning of the Kaliyuga. Libraries in Chennai might yield the information. When the Pandavas abdicated, Parikshit must have been about 16 years old the age of majority according to Hindu lawyers.
If Kali began in B. Again, the Mausala Parva says that the Yadava race was destroyed 36 years after the war and the Pandavas left soon thereafter at the beginning of Kaliyuga. On the other hand, the Bhagavatayana Parva states that Kali began at the time of the war itself. The Ashramavasika Parva states that when 15 years had expired after the war, Dhritarashtra, Gandhari and Kunti left for the forest. In the 16th year after the war, the Pandavas visited them along with Uttara who had recently become a mother and had her child in her lap.
Now, Parikshit was in the womb during the war Sauptika Parva , hence he could not have been an infant in the 16th year after the war. Therefore, this statement in the Ashramavasika is incorrect. Rather, in the 16th year after the war the Pandavas started not on a visit to the old people, but on their last journey. If Parikshit were really 36 years of age when the Pandavas left, why should he be placed under the tutelage of Kripacharya as stated in Mausala Parva?

I am a former scientist in ISRO with background in space-craft navigation and trajectory design in the Earth-Moon system done a project in this area as part of the Chandrayan 1 study phase in with appreciation from Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. This also trained me to design a space-craft trajectory anywhere inside the solar system with a decent awareness on the movement of planets in their orbits. Being a researcher focusing on the Geographical Data in the Mahabharata, Ramayana and Itihasa Puranas, the date of Kurukshetra War, the birth of Krishna, Rama and other Aitihasic events are collaterally important for me.
Hence, since I am interacting with various archaeo-astronomers and researchers who have come up with one or other dates for the Kurukshetra War.

The reason for such variance in the dates of archaeo astronomers is that, the planetary configurations observed in the terrestrial sky is cyclic in nature, because all the planets are moving around the sun in precise orbits in precise orbital periods, providing cyclic-nature to the planetary clustering in the various zodiacal zones Rashis of the terrestrial equatorial sky.
Archaeo-astronomers arrive at any given Kurukshetra War date by correlating the astronomical observations the positions of the known planets and comets, often with respect to the known stars or with the known constellations found in the Mahabharata Samskrt text most of the observations being that of sage Vyasa, close to the start of the Kurukshetra War with the software generated sky charts.
The researchers also take into account the planetary positions with respect to the stars and constellations during a heroes birth or death or other important events in their life to supplement and strengthen the astronomical observations of Vyasa close to the start of the Kurukshetra War. All of this is called the literature-astronomy correlation or the correlation of astronomy data in the Mahbharata especially those close to the Kurukshetra War narrative with a computed ancient planetary position chart or with a computer generated ancient sky map.
