Did ancient India shape the face of the modern world? The irrefutable truth is that this ancient nation, that is over 5,000 years old, gifted the world a treasure trove of knowledge-laden ancient Sanskrit texts like the Vedas, which inform and guide us in every aspect of human life, from education to enlightenment. This book aims to summarize the contributions of ancient Indian science, technology and culture in shaping the face of humanity. While it is impossible to summarize the vast contributions of ancient India in every aspect of human life in a single book, the objective of this illustrated book is not only to fill that gap a little, but also to present cutting-edge scientific research evidence that establishes this farsightedness of ancient Indian civilization. This book brings ancient India’s contributions to medicine, engineering, art, architecture, agriculture, basic science and consciousness studies to the gaze of general readers who may not have any background in the Sanskrit language. Special emphasis is given to important medical and surgical discoveries in ancient India and their applicability in modern medicine. Ancient India’s contributions to various branches of advanced engineering such as computer science, electrical engineering, metallurgy, mechanical and materials engineering and aerospace technology are summarized in this book, along with modern scientific research. Ancient Indian concepts of town planning, art and architecture are also covered. Indian knowledge systems pertaining to various branches of mathematics, astronomy, chemistry and consciousness engineering too are an integral part of this book. Most importantly, the authors have researched and cited over 250 evidence-based recent research articles, including those published in the world’s top scientific journals such as Nature, Science and Lancet that unequivocally establish ancient India’s glorious technological advances in many modern branches of medicine, engineering and technology which are yet a mystery to the rest of the world.
