Don’t Let Propaganda Pollute Indian Culture

Also Read

I recently came across some social media post of some Indian Liberals page that the ancient Indian knowledge and achievements were all fake and pseudoscience. They feel that Ayurveda is not science and Yoga is not useful.

Here are some the achievements of ancient Indian culture and science[1] :

  1. Ancient Dentistry (7000 BC)
  2. Ayurveda (5000 BC)
  3. Ancient flush toilet systems (2500 BC)
  4. Ruler (2400 BC)
  5. Weighing scale (2400BC)
  6. Plastic surgery (2000 BC)
  7. Pythagorean theorem (700 BC)
  8. Crucible steel (200BC)

How the Indian people had discovered the basis of Calculus long ago before Newton and Leibniz is a well known fact[2] .

Modern trigonometry comes from India. Trigonometric functions Sine and Cosine originate from Sanskritic Jyā & kotijyā. These functions were used in Sūrya Siddhānta.

The so called liberals have never read a single scripture or Vedas in their life but only know how to spread the western propaganda that “India was backward and it was civilized by the western countries.”

My only request to the Indian people is learn about your culture and it’s achievements. Never let these liberals pollute the knowledge of ancient Indian philosophy and science because if Indians don’t respect their culture no one else would. Please don’t fall in the propaganda that Indian science is pseudoscience. Also don’t fall in the trap who misuse the facts in their own favor to spread pseudoscience.
