An Indian website hosts an article about an Indian mathematician who asks, "Did India discover Pythagoras theorem? A top mathematician answers" Gee, I wonder what his conclusion will be?
It seems the cradle of western civilization isn't close enough to India's back yard for most Indian's tastes. Given the opportunity, they'd re-write history. Anti-American sentiment, along with anti-western sentiment, runs deep, and maybe for good reason. But whatever that reason, Indian's perpetual desire to re-write history ad nauseam is growing a bit old. What next, an article about how an Indian, not a Greek documented and used calculus in the 3rd century BC, long before Newton?
It would be delightful if India could point to an original Indian version of Euclid's Elements, the oldest continuously used textbook in history. Such books shape minds for, well, eons, by teaching logical & rational thought. Seemed to work well for Abraham Lincoln, he carried around a copy in his saddle bag and studied it while traveling.
Instead of self-glorifying episodic re-writes, how about discussing continuous, progressive and well reasoned contributions to culture and civilization?
