" When we read the poetical and philosophical monuments of the East
– above all, those of India, which are beginning to spread in Europe –
we discover there many a truth, and truths so profound, and which make such a contrast with the meanness of the results at which European genius has sometimes stopped..., that we are constrained to bend the knee before the philosophy of the East, and to see in this cradle of the human race the native land of the highest philosophy “

Victor Cousin, French Philosopher (1792-1867)


Or Is it that it was respectfully stolen from INDIA ? If yes, What should it be called ?

Yes, ancient INDIAN mathematicians discovered Pythagoras theorem 1000 years before Pythagoras was born. Sulba Sutras, composed between 800 and 500 B.C., demonstrate that India had Pythagoras' theor...em before the greeks ever even born. It was an INDIAN monk by name Baudhāyana who discovered and listed Pythagoras theorem in his book called Baudhayana Sulbasutra. Below is the photo of the shloka and translated english form : -

" The diagonal of a rectangle produces by itself both (the areas) produced separately by its two sides ".

It should be called as BAUDHAYANA THEOREM and NOT Pythagoras theorem.


" If I were to look over the whole world to find out the country most richly endowed with all the wealth, power and beauty that nature can bestow, in some parts a very paradise on earth, I SHOULD POINT TO INDIA ..."

" If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most developed some of it gifts, has most deeply pondered on the GREATEST PROBLEMS OF LIFE and has found solutions of some of them which will deserve the attention even of those who have studied Plato and Kant, I SHOULD POINT TO INDIA...."

" And if I were to ask myself from what literature we, here in Europe, who have been nurtured most exclusively on the thoughts of the Greeks and Romans and of the Semitic race and the Jewish may draw that corrective which is most wanted in order to make our inner life more comprehensive, more universal, in fact a more truly human life, again, I SHOULD POINT TO INDIA...."

- Professor Max Muller (1823-1900)


" India was the motherland of our race and Sanskrit the mother of Europe's languages; that she was the mother of our philosophy, mother through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics, mother, through Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity, mother, through the village comm...unity, of Self-government, of democracy. Mother India is in many ways mother of us all. "

" Perhaps in return for conquest, arrogance and spoliation, India will teach us the tolerance and gentleness of the mature mind, the quiet content of the unacquisitve soul, the calm of the understanding spirit, and a unifying, a pacifying love for all living things "

- Will Durant { American Historian }


"India has two million gods, and worships them all. In religion all other countries are paupers; India is the only millionaire." - Mark Twain

We might consider [ only a consideration not a fact ] whole of west to be a competitor for INDIA interms of money; We might consider [ only a consideration not a fa...ct ] whole of europe to be a competitor for INDIA interms of money; BUT India has no competitor in the whole of universe interms of knowledge "

{ Paupers means a person who is extremely poor }


Bless others when they revile you.Think how much good they are doing you; they can only hurt themselves. Go where people hate you, let them thrash the ego out of you, and you will get nearer to God”

- Swami Vivekananda at Thousand Island Park ( Retreat) USA. June 25, 1895.


Let me at the outset caution my ardent respected readers that this article does not in any way prescribe, subscribe nor advocate absence of ego; however it does solicit the need for ego to be tamed, harnessed, channelized and coursed towards a right cause. That being said, let us reflect on a story which would attitudinally predict the state of human mind’s - per se.

" An elephant was crossing a bridge. Mosquito seeing this asked for a ride. Mosquito said “Help mate! Can I sit on your back and give you some company as you cross the bridge?” For this elephant said nothing. The mosquito sat on the elephant's back. He felt very proud that he could persuade the elephant to be a co - rider. As they were crossing the bridge, the mosquito cried out, “Watch out brother, two of us are very heavy, make sure the bridge does not collapse!" The elephant said nothing. As they crossed over through the bridge, the mosquito said, “See, how I guided you safely through!" the elephant said nothing. Finally the mosquito got off the elephant's back and buzzed, “Here is my business card. If you need any help in the future just call me on my cell phone." The elephant thought that he heard some whisper somewhere. But he dismissed this as a day dream and marched on..."

The elephant is the enormous flow of our life. The mosquito is our restless ego that thrives by sucking life's attention. The more the elephant ignores the mosquito the more egos vanishes.

Is it that human minds are being driven by mosquitoes called ego's; is a question of highest order? Addressing this question is the persistent and urgent need of any human entity who is looking for any kind of success!. Is it not!?

Who was the first to conceive of true infiniteness?

“The invisible excludes nothing, the invisible that excludes nothing is the infinite – the soul of INDIA is the infinite.”

“Philosophers tell us that the INDIANS were the first ones to conceive of a true infinite from which nothing is excluded. The West shied away from this notion.... The West likes form, boundaries that distinguish and demarcate. The trouble is that boundaries also imprison – they restrict and confine.”

“ India saw this clearly and turned her face to that which has no boundary or whatever.”

“INDIA anchored her soul in the infinite seeing the things of the world as masks of the infinite assumes – there can be no end to these masks, of course. If they express a true infinity.”

While the West was still thinking, perhaps, of 6,000 years old universe – INDIA was already envisioning ages and eons and galaxies as numerous as the SANDS OF THE GANGES. The Universe so vast that modern astronomy slips into its folds without a ripple.”

- Huston Smith on India. [ A philosopher, most eloquent writer, world-famous religion scholar who practices Hatha Yoga ]

" Water is equivalent to blood. Don't waste it " - Swamiji { Swami Purushottamananda's message to an volunteer of VBS at Ramakrishna Math, Bangalore }


" The Vedic civilisation subscribed to the idea of a spherical earth at a time when everyone else, even the Greeks, assumed the earth was flat.
By the Fifth Century A.D. INDIANS had calculated that the age of the earth was 4.3 billion years; as late as the 19th Century, English scientists believed the earth was a hundred million years old, and it is only in the late 20th Century that Western scientists have come to estimate the earth to be about 4.6 billion years old "

On 11th of July, 1894 from U.S.A, Swami Vivekananda wrote an invigorated fiery letter to one of the Indian disciples which is relevant even to this day because of the current circumstances prevailing in my country.
He wrote " The faculty of organization is entirely absent in our nature, but this has to be infused. The great secret is - absence of jealousy. Be always ready to concede to the opinions of your brethren, and try always to conciliate. That is the whole secret. Fight on bravely! Life is short! Give it up to a great cause”.

There are Himalayan efforts being undertaken by organizations \ individuals to curb corruption in India and as an continuation of that struggle; Anna Hazare gave an inspirational and momentous speech at Raj Gath on June 8th.

Below is the transcript {in part} of that speech which is very much in line with the above words of Swami Vivekananda.


Transcript Of Anna Hazare’s Inspirational And Momentous Speech:

Respected brothers and sisters, I thank all of you for joining the struggle which was started on 5th of April which still continues on to this day. I would also like to thank all the channels of different networks for broadcasting this struggle to every corner of India.

Today’s one day fast is against the barbaric act which was perpetuated by government on people who were in sleep at Ramlila Maidan. It is totally a blatant attack on our countries democracy! What happened there on that dreadful night is execution of very annals of our democracy? Each country in this world has given the power to the people to protest against any injustice. And such protests can never be considered equal to treason. And is the fundamental undercurrent of any democratic step up.

We are sitting here at Raj Ghat to protest against that barbaric act of the government. If this is the action which would be perpetuated than what is the difference between the British India and Independent India. It is equivalent to Jallianwala Bagh massacre; Only difference is that bolts were not fired at people. We have to take refuge in the messages of Mahatma Gandhi if this second struggle of freedom needs to proceed. One of his first messages is that of “NON VIOLIENCE “. If we do become violent in this struggle then we would be giving government a powerful instrument to curb us down.

I am fighting from past 25 years and I have fought against strongest negative elements of the society; Have been fighting against rowdies……Have been fighting against governments. They were not able to subdue me because of that one characteristic. What is that I have? I leave in a temple; Have a plate to eat and a mattress to sleep, nothing other than these things. I have organized and completed projects of society which surmount to cores of rupees. But I have no bank balance. I don’t have money or power but even after which SIX central cabinet ministers came to meet me. If I had taken up the path of violence then these people would have twisted and manipulated my struggle.

Couple of minutes ago someone commented if Anna wanted he could have become a politician. He could have become an MP, an MLA. What is that I would have achieved by becoming an MP. Even if I had become an MP I would not have got the happiness what I am experiencing at this moment. Whatever happiness which I am experiencing today is real continuities happiness which can never be broken nor would get depleted by time? My message to all Indians is this: This second struggle of freedom from the tyranny of corruption has started. Even though we are an Independent country, we have not yet got right and complete freedom. Paramount difference is that whites went and blacks have taken their place. We have a long way to go…………

For which each of us need to ingrain pure strain free character, renounce everything and should not deviate from the path of truth. Remember this - “People who live for others are remembered. People who live for themselves will never be remembered “. This is the message which we need to think and imbibe in our lives and also learn from our country’s great history. I thought and imbibe this in my life when I was 24 years old.
Read a book of Swami Vivekananda because of which I understood the goal of life and decided that I will not live for myself instead will live for the well fare of my country. And if and when I die it should be for the welfare of my country. And now I am walking fearlessly with death in one hand.

Government even tried to provide security to me; I wrote a letter to the government asking: - " When did Bhagat Singh ask for security? When did Rajguru and sukhdave ask for security? “. If these people had asked for security, then our country would not have got independence. I also wrote in the same letter that people die of heart attack; and I do not want to die the same death instead die for my country!

Most of you might not believe few days before, one of the cabinet ministers had given a Supari of 30 lacks to kill me; but the person who was supposed to take Supari told the minster that he would not kill me as I was a person who is working for this country.

Another thing which each of you need to remember is that when you want to fight for country there is bound to hear people speaking against you or criticizing you. During those times develop strength to forbear those criticisms: If you want to do good for the society, if you want to do good for the country then you will have to forbear personal criticisms. BUT DO NOT FORBEAR UNJUSTICE TOWARDS SOCIETY OR COUNTRY that would be biggest treason. The more we are criticized the more we will get ability to do more work for country.

Now, I want to say something for the government also……We and government are NOT two but one; Only thing that government has to understand and do is……To get down from the position of a dictator and start working as a unit then ONLY OUR COUNTRY WILL MOVE FORWARD…

It is the same words which Swami Vivekananda had resonated 150 years ago which again being resonated by Anna Hazaza…...! Will we concede to the opinions of our brethren? Will we try to conciliate with our brethren!? Without which how can my country arise from the deep slumber which we have knowing or unknowing pushed it too!?

I am no preacher of any momentary social reform. I am not trying to remedy evils. I only ask you to forward to complete the practical realization of the scheme of human progress that has been laid out in the most perfect order by our ancestors. I only ask you to work to realize more and more the Vedantic ideal of the solidarity of man and his inborn divine nature.

June 6th of 1944 marks as an epitomical day in world history as it is the 67th anniversary of a day which tangentially altered the world history unequivocally. If not for this day, world’s history would have been written differently. Today, reminds the world of that massive war effort which was undertaken by Allied Forces in putting an end to the tyranny of Nazi Germany by Normandy Landings { D - DAY }.

A total people involved in these landings were close to 4 million – Allied soldiers. {Which excludes Nazi German soldiers}? Below photos does tell us the never ending story of mystery which humanity had to go through because
of such wars.

Normandy Invasion, June 1944 Overview and Special Image Selection

Normandy Invasion D-Day Landings on "Omaha" Beach, 6 June 1944

With the quantum of resources available at our disposal, my quest for knowing the real reason behind such wars and finding ways ( if any ) to avoid such wars in further would have ended in a massive failure but for these below words which speaks for itself on the reasons of this war and how such wars can be avoided.


“The whole of Western World is on a volcano which may burst tomorrow”said Swami Vivekananda after his first visit from west at Triplicane Literary Society, Madras. During his second visit to the West he saw Europe as “a vast military camp.” “Throughout Europe there is a craze for soldiers, soldiers every where “ he said during his European tour in 1900. From the below lines it is certain that he did see the rise of Germany and prophesied these lines which should be etched in every human mind of every country if such wars need to be avoided.

“On the other hand, centralized, young and mightily Germany has begun her upward march above the horizon with rapid strides...... Germany is fast multiplying her population, and is exceptionally hardy. Today Germany is the dictator to all Europe , her place is above all!" He also prophesied the dreadful wars led by German imperialism: “ Germany will surely try to absorb the German - speaking portion of the Austrian Empire - and Russia and others are sure to oppose her; so there is the possibility of a dreadful war".

He continued : - " I have a message for the West as Buddha had a message for the East." "The whole of Western Civilization will crumble to pieces in the next fifty years if there is no spiritual foundation. ..... Europe, the centre of the manifestation of material energy, will crumble into dust within fifty years if she is not mindful to change her position, to shift her ground and make spirituality the basis of her life. And what will save Europe is the religion of the Upanishads".

His prophecy did become true. Europe did crumble within the 50 years as west failed to respond to his words. And turned Europe and Japan into a wasteland. Will the world shift its ground and make spirituality the basis of country's life is a question only time will answer ? Is it not !?

" Everything must be sacrificed, if necessary, for that one sentiment, Universality. whether I live or die, whether i go back to india or not, remember this specially, that universality - perfect acceptance, not tolerance only - we preach and perform " - SWAMI VIVEKANANDA 1894 - Aamerica
