    Sushruta of ancient India invented surgery. His Samhitha
    describes a steel knife with which human hair can be sliced into
    two. He is also the inventor of plastic surgery.

    Sukra Neethi Sastra mentions more than 30 formulas of gun powder.
    Ancient Hindus taught the Chinese about some fundamentals of gun
    powder. The world's purest niter (more than 95%) in its natural
    state is available in the mines of India. Marco Polo (of 13th
    century) was financed by the king of his country with the
    specific purpose of finding the secret of the Indian fire
    weapons. The problems faced by the Europeans in making the guns
    are lack of good metallic alloys to make the bodies of the guns
    and the non-availability of good machine tools for making them.
    Manufacture of the guns fell into temporary oblivion because most
    of them back-fired or exploded. How did the British conquer
    India? Not with their guns. The first war between the Indians and
    the British took place at Mysore during reign of Hyder Ali. The
    casualties on the British side was 90 percent and those on the
    Indian side was 10 percent. The British realized that their
    weapons were inferior to those used by the Indians. The Indians
    had rockets and missiles besides guns and cannons. The first item
    exported by the then British East India company was Indian niter.

    Aryabhatta was the inventor of zero. He also mentioned that the
    earth is a sphere. He also described a geocentric model of the
    solar system.

    Algebra, trigonometry and calculus came from India. Quadratic
    equations were by Sridharacharya in the 11th century. The largest
    numbers the Greeks and the Romans used were 106 whereas Hindus
    used numbers as big as 1053(10 to the power of (53) with specific
    names as early as 5000 BC during the Vedic period. Even today,
    the largest used number is Tera 1012(10 to the power of 12).

    Sushruta is the father of surgery. 2600 years ago he and health
    scientists of his time conducted complicated surgeries like
    cesareans, cataract, artificial limbs, fractures, urinary stones
    and even plastic surgery and brain surgery.

    The value of pi was first calculated by Budhayana, and he
    explained the concept of what is now known as the Pythagorean
    Theorem. British scholars have last year (1999) officially
    published that Budhayan’s works dates back to the 6th Century,
    which is long before the time of European mathematicians. The
    place value system, the decimal system was developed in India in
    100 BC.

    It is true that even across the Himalayan barrier India has sent
    to the west, such gifts as grammar and logic, philosophy and
    fables, hypnotism and chess, and above all numerals and the
    decimal system. Will Durant (American Historian, 1885-1981).

    Chess (Shataranja or AshtaPada) was invented in India.

    The concept of Reiki originated in India, but it was rediscovered
    by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan in the late 19th century. Dr. Usui was
    a Shingon Buddhist priest and a physician. He read about an
    ancient healing art in an 1100 year old Buddhist Manuscript and
    made a brief synthesis of the essence of this seven level Tantric
    teaching as Reiki.

    Indian astronomer, Brahmagupta, estimated in the 7th century that
    the circumference of the earth was 5000 yojanas. A yojana is
    around 7.2 kms. Calculating on this basis we see that the
    estimate of 36,000 kms as the earth's circumference comes quite
    close to the actual circumference known today.

    The Arabs borrowed so much from India in the field of mathematics
    that even the subject of mathematics in Arabic came to known as
    Hindsa which means 'from India' and a mathematician or engineer
    in Arabic is called Muhandis which means 'an expert in

    Pingala (400 BC) invented the binary number system which is the
    basic of computer operations.

    Ancient Indians had more inventions than any other country in the
    world at that time.

    Among all countries in the world, India has inherited the largest
    number of ancient manuscripts from time immemorial. They were
    written on the widest range of subjects known to humans.
