" TO KNOW WHERE WE ARE GOING, WE MUST KNOW WHERE WE HAVE BEEN "
|Harrison ford stars as|
The inhabitants of this country, with all the natural comforts given above, evolved very quickly. They soon developed the most scientifically perfect language known as 'sanskrit'. They further developed Vimana ( now known as Aeroplanes ) and had already known the power of 'anu'. ( now known as 'atom' in English ). They had soon realised that the material world is an illusion and therefore developed the Science of Meditation and Yoga. Through the development of this science, they began to increasingly control this dream reality and many were ultimately able to conquer time and space. Teleportation was achieved. Machines were no longer needed. They became so absorbed in the science of the mind, that the physical sciences were almost forgotten.
Through their developed powers, they were able to perceive the coming dark ages ( kali yuga ). It was a feared age as man would progressively utilise less and less of his mind and would not be able to comprehend anything beyond the five senses. As such, to protect the knowledge already gained, and also to prevent their misuse, they encoded the knowledge in cryptic sanskrit shlokas. The human mind can remember rhythms naturally and without any effort ( a song is easy to remember ). As such, the shlokas were made rhythmic so that there was less chance of its distortion when passed down orally from one generation to the next. They called it the vedas.
It would however be foolish to confine the greatness of this holy land only for its spiritual endeavours. Even in this dark kali yuga age, the Indians were masters of the masters. In the field of mathematics, the Indians invented the numbering system ( though credit is given to Arabs but the Arabs themselves learnt it from Hindus ) and also the concept of zero ( 'shunya' in sanskrit ) . Trigonometry was also invented by it. Infact, even the European Languages including many words in English are a derivative of the ancient sanskrit language of India.
|Nalanda University. The worlds first University|
In the field of Astronomy, there are references in Rig Veda ( some say the vedas are atleast 10000 years old ) about the spherical shape of earth, period of rotation and that the earth revolves around the sun. The ancient Hindus also knew that the sun also revolves around another sun, which scientists only now are suspecting the same. Infact, the Indians taught the world in the world's first residential university called the Nalanda University where students from china and other Asian countries used to come for studies.
|Iron pillar in Delhi.|
In the field of metallurgy, there was no comparision of India. The Indians made a giant 6 ton iron pillar 1500 years ago near Kutub-Minar in Delhi which has till date not rusted at all. It is only recently that the secrets of this ancient Indian technology has been unravelled as to anti-rust properties.
Indians, through their smartness and resourcefulness was the richest country and was called ' The Golden Bird'. India was already into International Trade in the year 1400s and was the Biggest Trading country in the world. Infact, this was the reason that an entire oceon was named after a country.
India lost her way after the invasion of the East India Company in the 1600s and as a result, her greatness slept for the next 300 years. To be fair to Indians, in a front to front battle, even Alexander had to accept defeat at the hands of India. However, the Britishers were cunning and they entered India as friends and businessmen. Once trust was established, it was easy for the British to conquer India. However, the enslavement of 300 years is but a small blackspot on the otherwise shining record of India. No doubt, this was an extremely traumatic experience on the psyche of Indians but much has already been written about it than what it deserves.
Many realized masters ( including my father's guru ) have stated that the 21st century will belong to India. The signs of this happening are already showing. Many will criticise about the lack of infrastructure, poverty, corruption etc. They fail to understand that India is in a transforming stage and its 1 billion people are trying to calibrate the country's systems through a democratic setup. It is slow but extremely durable.
The first chapter in the Modern History of the world may have belonged to western civilizations but it will surely have an Indian Ending...:)
