Description

This is the 6*9 Black and white interior version. For those with vision problems, we recommend the Letter size editions, 983925, 9835910. The stonewalling of the Indic contribution has strong parallels in the effort to emasculate the Indic tradition, and it is only after I read extensively in the Indology literature , did I realize that the whole pattern of denigration of the Indic past was a concerted effort to reduce the Indic civilization to an 'also ran' category. The main reason for writing this book is that the real story of the Indic contribution to Astronomy has yet to be told in the text books of the west. Few books give a coherent account of the Indic odyssey as it unfolds from the mists of antiquity to the pioneering work of Astrophysicist Chandrasekhar on the nature of the universe
