“India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most constructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only” -Mark Twain
I have been studying the traditional Indian sciences and technologies for quite a while now. It truly is fascinating! Dan Brown in his book “The Lost Symbol” rightly claims that the knowledge we possess today is only rediscovery of what existed thousands of years back. I am not denying the scientific advancements in other parts of the world, but a lot of scientific progress happened in India as well.
