In the East of our world we also find deluge stories where matsya avatara of Vishnu forewarned the people. Listening to the messengers of his gods the king of the Dravida Kingdom, Shraddhadeva, son of Vivasvat and therefore also known as Manuvaivasvata [Satyavrata meaning “always truthful”], build an ark for his family and for those who wanted to be saved by following the orders of the gods. This story of Manu in Hinduism got his boat perched after the deluge on the top of the Malaya Mountains. After the deluge, Manu’s family and the seven sages repopulated the earth. According to Purana, Manu’s story occurs before 28 chaturyuga in the present Manvantara which is the 7th Manvantara. This amounts to 120 million years ago.
