The worldwide belief is, that, In India modernization, as far as technology and science are concerned emerged after the Industrial Revolution.
But recent independent studies and archaeological findings clearly reinstate the belief that Ancient India was far more technologically & scientifically advanced than the western countries.
Vedas are the backbone of Our culture and are unquestionably, the oldest literature in the world.
Vedas are great repositories of advanced knowledge and high thinking.
They are a large body of knowledge texts composed in Vedic Sanskrit and the texts constitute the oldest layer of Sanskrit literature and the oldest Scriptures of Hinduism.
The Americans and Germans have established several schools to learn Sanskrit to decipher the hidden treasures of Vedic wisdom.
Early indologists wished to control & convert the followers of Vedic Culture, therefore they widely propagated that the Vedas were simply mythology.
They maligned the Vedas because of their disagreement with their Eurocentric colonialists world view.
Modern scientific methods, such as satellite imagery and dating techniques show that the ancient statements of the Vedas are factual and not mythical as erroneously propagated.
Satellite images clearly show the Indus-Sarasvati river system extended from the Himalayas to the Arabian Sea and many settlements existed along the banks of the now dry Sarasvati River.
The satellite view of Adam's Bridge also known as Rama's Bridge or Rama Setu is a chain of limestone shoals, between Pamban Island, also known as Rameswaram Island, off the south-eastern coast of Tamil Nadu, India, and Mannar Island, off the north-western coast of Sri Lanka.
Geological evidence suggests that this bridge is a former land connection between India and Sri Lanka.
Rama Setu Was an engineering masterpiece. The technology once existed to make stones float on water and the architect like Nala and Neela were too advanced in building a bridge from India to Sri Lanka within 5 days with the help of dedicated work force of million Vanaras.
Marine archaeological findings also corroborated descriptions in the Mahabharata of Dwaraka as a large, well-fortified and prosperous port city, which was built on land reclaimed from the sea, and later taken back by the sea.
An entire submerged city at Dwaraka, the ancient port city of Lord Krishna with its massive fort walls, piers, warfs and jetty has been found in the ocean as described in the Mahabharata and other Vedic literatures.
Uncovering further evidence in support of statements in the Vedic scriptures.
The 22 foot high Iron Pillar of Delhi, which is the largest hand forged block of iron from antiquity stands as mute testimony to the highly advanced scientific knowledge of metallurgy that was known in ancient India.
This six and a half ton pillar standing over two millennia has resisted all rust till date.
Our Vedas are swarming with references to flying vehicles, weapons of mass destruction and advanced technology. There are hundreds of reference to the Astras (weapons) and Yantras (machines)
The different types of weapons mentioned are :
Each Astra had it's own effect and they evoked the power of the elements they were associated with.
The ayurvedic physician Sushruta developed early techniques for reconstructive nose surgery (Rhinoplasty)
The Sushruta Samhita is an ancient Sanskrit text on medicine and surgery, and one of the most important treatises on this subject to survive from the ancient world.
It includes historically unique chapters describing surgical training, instruments and procedures.
A vast number of statements and materials presented in the ancient Vedic literatures can be shown to agree with modern scientific findings and they also reveal a highly developed scientific content in these literatures.
Excavations add further credibility to the validity of the historical statements found in the Vedic literatures.
Our Vedic literature covered all the major branches of human knowledge and activities, including mathematics, astronomy, physics, chemistry, medical science and surgery, fine arts, mechanical and production technology, civil engineering and architecture, ship building and navigation, sports and games
Today the world at large is realizing, slowly but surely, that at a time when ancient Britons were Bronze Age farmers, and the Greeks were a few Mycenaean warrior tribes, one of the world's greatest civilizations flourished in the land of the Indus and the Sarasvati.
