“What Vedic science? Where are proofs?”
I often receive such reactions from my real life educated friends.
1) Education system relying on verbal communication as principle method of training, does not feel necessary to write tons of pages of books. Yes, they do compile conclusions. Some of them are available.
2) Has anyone done research about loss of text books due to burning of libraries by invaders?
Before asking proofs, do research. If not interested in research, at least do not reject the claims by mockery due to your personal bias that ‘Anything ancient is primitive’.
Under अतुल्य संस्कृत, अमर संस्कृति series, we are trying to cover glorious achievements in the field of Science and technology. We have started with mathematics and allied branches for now.
Today, we will talk about digestion and replacement of local technology by colonization/globalization.
What science you are talking? The one that replaces accurate local, free,open source methods of measurements?
“Globalization, like colonization, aims for hegemony or the conquest of the human mind. Accordingly, Huntington advocated soft power as the key instrument of globalisation. Soft power, and the uniformity of values required for globalization to work, is achieved through cultural entrainment. This process requires that alternative cultural values and practices are automatically perceived as inferior. A trivial example is the English language. In colonial times, English speakers regarded themselves as superior. This is still true in the epoch of globalisation, since the uniform value is that of maximising income, and the highest incomes come from jobs in a transnational company, where knowledge of English obviously is a must. When certain cultural values become dominant, other cultural values are perceived as intrinsically inferior.”
“In the case of the Lakshadweep islanders, and in the matter of navigation, I have pointed out (Raju, 2007) the harm caused by the uncritical perception of Western practices as automatically superior. In 1939, the Lakshadweep islanders started learning British techniques of navigation in school, and became dependent upon imported British instruments which they could not produce. The instruments the islander could afford to buy were less accurate than their indigenous instrument the kam¯al. The British techniques were assumed superior, without evaluation.”
