It is well known that Indian scriptures and Sanskrit literature are a storehouse of knowledge. But there are very few attempts to systematically classify them into known branches of knowledge in an illustrative manner to familiarize a lay reader with the richness of Indian past. The painstaking effort of Dr. Avadhanulu in this direction by picking up relevant extracts from literature, like drops picked from the ocean, and compiling them and translating has resulted in this book which any reader can vouch, is unique.

Today there is a worldwide interest in these Indian thoughts leading to considerable research in well-known universities across the world. Vedas, Upanishads, etc. deal with different aspects of science.

The present book synthesizes the knowledge spread over 5000 years to enlighten the reader on the ancient wisdom in different areas. The author has classified this into chapters dealing with different aspects. The significance and importance of Vedas are highlighted in this book. In different chapters, the author deals with almost all branches of science and narrates relevant Sanskrit text to prove that several present day findings are not new such as the concepts on gravitation, solar system, the value of Pi and so on. The author has carefully chosen and discussed many topics from Sanskrit literature which dealt with geometry, chemistry, physics, agriculture, irrigation, rain forecasting, imaging, wave theory, healthcare, energy, cognition, computers, cosmology, quantum mechanics and unified theory. Extracting computer concepts from Vishnu Sahsranama is very interesting.

The author displayed sincerity in mining useful data from earlier Sanskrit literature which may make every Indian proud. This book makes several interesting comparisons between Vedas and Science and the concepts therein. Dr. Avadhanulu, the author of the book, has done a commendable work. This book is a useful reference guide for all those who want to know what is hidden in our scriptures in a readable language. I would certainly advise our youngsters in schools and colleges to read this book which would give a glimpse of our ancestors’ wisdom and scientific temper and inspire them in making India once again a global center of knowledge creation for the betterment of humanity.

Topics broadly covered:
Introduction to Vedic literature, Mathematics in Vedas, Physics, Chemistry, Radiation, Spectroscopy, Cosmology, Medicine, microbiology, Neurology, computers, Artificial Intelligence, Imaging Technology etc …in Vedas
