This paper shows that a complete theory of gravity can be deduced purely from special theory of relativity and equivalence principle without using general theory of relativity or Einstein's field equations. It is shown how the time periods of identical clocks and lengths of identical measuring rods will vary with change in gravitational potential, and how we can derive Schwarzschild Metric from this variation, proving that special theory of relativity is not so special and applies to non-inertial frames as well. Then the equations of motion and Kepler's Laws are derived from Schwarzschild Metric using a novel yet simple method of differentiation with respect to time. Equation of motion thus derived contains a completely new and hitherto unknown term for gravitational acceleration. Using this new equation of motion it is shown that perihelion advance of mercury, high orbital speeds in galaxies, deflection of light by the Sun and gravitational lensing in the galactic clusters are completely explainable. This makes dark matter redundant and paves way for a new theory of Gravity different from the ones given by both Newton and Einstein.
