Bharath, the land of eternal knowledge which churned out the secrets of material as well as metaphysical world, is becoming an important global player. The materialistic world around, weary of the ever increasing competition, is hopefully listening to her wisdom of Vedas and Upanishads. But can she rise to the occasion and lead the nation states to a sustainable world order? Does she have her inner strengths that gave birth to the Vedas and Upanishads still intact?
The womb that gave birth to Veda Vyasa, Adi Shankara, Varahamihira, Aryabhata, Shusrurha and Bhaskara had become sterile. After Sir C.V. Raman, we have none to be proud of among the golden array of Nobel Laureates.
Apart from J.C. Bose, M.N. Saha and few others, we are in bankruptcy of scientific talents. We neither try to understand the treasure of our traditional wisdom nor generate modern scientific and technological innovations with strong philosophical base. Though the thoughts and dreams are sprouting among the crores, which is plenty enough to make this county an unchallengeable one in science, technology and engineering, the move is not gaining ample momentum.
