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.
Did you know that the speed of light, as calculated in our ancient scriptures is in complete consonance with the speed of light as calculated by ‘modern science’? How ‘modern’ is this ‘modern science’? 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. The book takes a close look at the standard units of time and length, besides varied other subjects—metallurgy, weapon systems, aeroplane, solar cells, advancements in the medical field, like cures for heart disease and jaundice, therapy for infantile seizures, or even homeopathy—the descriptions for which are found in our texts; and which could form the basis for more research to benefit the nation, and humanity.
