“You have stunned them into silence”

That was the remark that Come Carpentier made from the chair, during the debate at India International Centre, when he asked for questions and people remained silent for what seemed like a couple of minutes before breaking into a rush of questions.

The debate was on the  “Concepts of science in ancient Indian and modern Western civilizations”. It was with N. Mukunda who is Professor Emeritus of Theoretical Physics at the Indian Insitute of Science, Bangalore.

My point was that in ancient India the notion of proof was secular and down-to-earth, since empirical, while the West had mixed-up religious belief with science right since Newton. However, Indians have been persuaded to accept Western authority as a substitute for science.

India was colonised by a lie.
