Why Ancient India Could Not Have Had Genetic, Cosmetic Science

In our current context, while some mythologies are given to us, some others are created anew or the old ones are, so-to-say, modified to fit our current context. But we will restrict ourselves to the pre-existing myths and the problem of attaching modern concepts to them. Any idea, concept or event is necessarily rooted in its cultural, geographical and historical specificity. For example, if we take medicinal study in pre-modern times in India, of course there must have been some form of science prevailing but it must have been very much different from contemporary medical science based on pharmaceutical manufacturing. In fact even today if we consider Ayurveda as an indigenous form of treatment, the source of knowledge is different from that of allopathic treatment. Of course, both of them qualify as medical study or research, but to reduce all differences to object and aim of study is for our purposes irrelevant as it does not help us much beyond stating a generality or perhaps something as obvious as- all living human beings breathe.

India Successfully Enters The Mars Orbit

With the successful completion of the MOM, India becomes the first country ever to enter the Mars orbit in its very first attempt that too in a very short span of time. Before ISRO, it was the Soviet Space Program (took three attempts before it succeeded in entering the Mars orbit), NASA (succeeded in the second attempt), and the European Space Agency, that successfully reached the Mars orbit.

Study Smart, Study Right

It’s that time of the year once again when I shut myself in my room every evening and open my books, and go on an adventure called “preparing for exams”. While I end up sleeping half the time what’s more difficult for me is to not access my phone when I study. Being the texting addict that I am, having a phone near me always gives me the assurance that there are people out there looking out for me. But it also gives my mother another opportunity to yell at the highest pitch possible.
