Do you remember all the Europeans making a mess of theories about the universe in the dark ages?
Well, not in India.
While we were teaching our children that we lived on a flat earth that’s the center of the universe, the Ancient Indians were discovering setting the fundamentals for modern astronomy.
Around 2500 years earlier than most scientists in the Western World, the Indians figured out that the earth wasn’t the center of the universe and that we were orbiting around the sun.
Much of that history is forgotten in Western countries, even though much of it is used in science concepts all around the world from China to Europe.
