Mention of existence of radioactive ores on coast of India.

Hindu mythology relates the end of the Krishna Avatar of the God Vishnu and his clan to a curse. It says that according to a curse, the fall of the Yadava clan of Krishna was to be from a particular mace. In order to negate the threat of this curse, the Yadavas powdered this mace and put it into the ocean. This powder was washed ashore where it mingled with the sand on the coast and grew into a deadly grass, and here the Yadavas are said to have fought and died.
According to mythology, Krishna’s empire spanned the western Malabar coast of India, with capital at Dwaraka in Gujarat. However, the Malabar coast is also famous for another thing- it holds the world’s richest sources of radioactive Thorium and also quantities of Uranium. Much of the world's current demand for thorium metal and its compounds is satisfied by mining placers along India's Malabar Coast, where wave action deposits monazite as a coarse yellow-to-brown sand on beaches. Also, the study of geochemical behavior of thorium and uranium isotopes and their activity ratios have in the coastal marine sediments of the West Coast region of India and the surrounding sea region show that these regions have an anomalously higher concentration of radioactive ores when compared to the northern or eastern Indian coast (for more detailed explanation of this study mail me). Scientists maintain that results of this study can be correlated with the transport and deposition of artificially introduced radioactivity or any run-off terrestrial pollutants in the region.
A ‘deadly sand’ could be descriptive of the West Coast's radioactive ore - which may have led to the destruction of the Yadava clan.
