In post-independence India, science and technology has remained anchored to terms like ‘scientific temper’, logical and rational thought pitted against ‘superstition’ and ‘illogical’ social mores. Science is still considered a byproduct of Western civilization’s industrial development. This requires a thorough examination on merits. A Brief History of Science in India by Sabareesh.P.A answers countless questions on Bharat’s contribution and glorious achievements in science and technology, through time immemorial. Besides, it also emphasizes how science and society could co-exist in harmony.
Following an in-depth study of the ancient Sanskrit texts from a scientific point of view, the book highlights the fact that science and technology in ancient India was much more advanced than the present-day science and technology in several fields. It advocates the case that further research based upon the knowledge available in these texts and scriptures can lead to a quantum jump in the advancement of modern science and may open more vistas for research.
