Francois M. Voltaire, we all know him;
In class 9th he met us in a chapter named French Revolution.
He was one of the greatest French writers and philosophers;
He says, " i am convinced that everything has come down to us from the banks of the Ganga -- Astronomy, Astrology, Spiritualism, etc. It is very important to note that some 2,500 years ago at the least Pythagoras went from Samos to the Ganga to learn Geometry... But he would certainly not have taken such a strange journey had the reputation of the Brahmins' science not been long established in Europe".
Mark Twain said, " Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India".
Jean sylvain Bailly, noted for his computation of an orbit for Halley's comet, said, " The motion of the stars calculated by the Hindus before some 4500 years, vary not even a single minute from the modern tables of Cassine and Meyer."
The father of the atomic bomb, J. R. Oppenheimer said, " What we shall find in Modern physics in an
exemplification, an encouragement and a refinement of old Hindu wisdom."
These people may say whatever absurd they wish to but how can an Indian praise ancient Indian science, and that too in National Science Congress; shame on him;
he should loose his breath as soon as possible; by presenting a research paper on ancient "Viman Shastra", Captain Anand Bodas has deteriorated the name of Indian scientist
; he is a big blot on present scientific temperament of the country. Had he been an American or a citizen of Britain or even an Australian we would have accepted his sayings whole hearty,
but how can an Indian praise his ancient past;
I wonder, what right he has to do so???
I hope keeping in view the sentiments of a truly 'Maculised' educated youth, the Indian government will take strict action against him and will also pass a resolution
that in the coming future no one would dare commit such a blunder.
