ABOUT THIS BOOK

In the fascinating saga of ancient scientific ideas and techniques, Indian accomplishments hold

an exalted position. India displayed its originality not only in mathematics and computational

astronomy but also in holistic medicine, metallurgy and other fields. For reasons known and

unknown, however, India did not develop a rational, methodological and verifiable matrix for

ushering in modern science until the nineteenth century. But when modern science was finally

introduced to India by the British, it did not view it as alien to its ethos. India welcomed it

instead, and several bright Indian scientists scaled the peaks of excellence.

The main objective of Science in India is to present to the general reader a comprehensive

narrative about the history of science in the country. Based on authentic sources and their

in-depth study, this book deals with the origins, ramifications and achievements in traditional

astronomy, mathematics, medicine and chemical practices, besides certain concepts related to

the physical world as well as plant life. It also discusses the advent and growth of modern

science till Independence, highlighting the seminal contributions of Indian scientists who

won international acclaim. This is a historical and factual perspective on science in India,

traversing a span of more than 5,000 years.
