...Science and Technology? Finally a mention in Wikipedia. It was long overdue.
I especially like this introduction made by the editors.
According to the 19th century British historian, Grant Duff:
"Many of the advances in the sciences that we consider today to have been made in Europe were in fact made in India centuries ago".
A common fallacy when you rely only on Western "sources" for your information instead of being unbiased. There is a tendency for people to believe that Western EQUALS unbiased
No doubt last 400 years the West has advanced more in comparison especially when it comes to modern-day inventions and gadgest but we can't forget it was simultaneously a period of disunity, decay and economic collapse in Asia (colonial rule in India being the number one culprit).
Not related to cricket I know but I thought it was worth mentioning this article in response to some of the meanest comments made in this forum.
Apart from Wikipedia, there are some "Indian" sources too that give the same information in details:
