Here I will not talk about the present education system. Which was a very precious gift by the Britishers to India as the Indians generally believes. I will rather talk about the education system which the majority of the Indian believe is of no use in day to day practical life.So I will be talking about Ancient India Education System.
Modern Education System of India
Thomas Babington Macaulay is said to be the introducer of the modern Indian education system, his minutes in British parliament were as:
“I have conversed both here and at home with men distinguished by their proficiency in the Eastern tongues. …. I have never found one among them who could deny that a single shelf of a good European library was worth the whole native literature of India and Arabia”.
He further added
“We must at present do our best to form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern; a class of persons, Indian in blood and colour, but English in taste, in opinions, in morals, and in intellect”. This is what Macaulay was successfully able to do, brainwashed us.
Chemical Engineering and Medical Science in Ancient India Education System
Ayurveda the ancient medical science of India has mentioned many medicines. Scientist in ancient Indian has used almost everything that is available in nature to make the various sort of medicine.
They have used Mercury & Arsenic in the medicines, pure Chalcopyrite and almost all the metal know to the modern world.
These are not present in nature in pure form. They are present only as an ore for eg: Mercury is available in nature as HgS i.e. mercury sulfide, so they knew the method of distillation to extract mercury from HgS.
Mercury was then further treated with herbs to do the shudhikaran of mercury so that it is absorbed by the human body easily.
Unfortunately, we have only half the literature available to us now, where are the remaining literature nobody knows.
The Britishers created medicine and got patent earning them good money. We all know that it bloomed right after their victory in India. They have ruled us for 200 years. India got Independence just 67 years back, so just imagine how much time they had to manipulate our history. Today majority of Indian thinks we are developed because of Britishers.
Metallurgy in Ancient India Education System
The knowledge of ores shows that the ancient Indians were also aware of the mines of various metals. They were also aware of how to extract ore from those mines.
Who can forget the Architecture of Taj Mahal? Is it possible to create such a monument which has handled the wrath of time without any scientific Knowledge?
History of Aurangzeb
Aurangzeb was the richest person in his era. The largest diamond mine at that time was under his captivity and with such dominance. Britishers, French and the Portuguese were scared of him. Today we highlight Aurangzeb in a negative shed but the truth is that this guy Aurangzeb when captured Shivaji treated Shivaji as a King and kept him in a palace though as a prisoner.
People watching discovery channels think that if white people were not there we would never have experienced the nature or say we would never have seen such development. Well, those negligent people don’t know that the western world is still not fully aware of the medicinal properties of many of the herbal plants.
They will still search for medicinal properties of turmeric and other herbs in the laboratory. They don’t know how to use garam masala, dhaniya powder, onion, ginger and garlic to increase the taste of the food and their medicinal importance in daily food. So they don’t know the science of cooking and we don’t know that we knew the science of cooking at some point in time.
Astronomy Science in Ancient India Education System
Now let’s talk about astrophysics. Indian scientist, have predicted centuries ago that there are 9 planets. To this our modern scientist claim oh it is so easy it can be seen by our naked eyes. Well, I have never observed a single planet in my life with naked eyes.
They have also predicted when we will have a full moon day, a solar eclipse and all the other possible positions of the planet.
The entire process requires some serious mathematical calculation. They made it so easy, that an astrologer doesn’t need to calculate the position. Instead just refers to some tables.
Number System in Ancient India Education System
The modern-day genius tells that only zero was invented in India. If zero was invented in India that means the entire number system was developed way before Britishers arrived in India because without zero you can’t have number 10, you can’t have addition, subtraction, multiplication, division.
Britishers were able to destroy science & some other important education beliefs of India successfully. Unfortunately, Britishers didn’t realize that the scriptures which they termed as mythology and thought that they are good for nothing were actually hidden matrix within literature.
