When people say there is no scientific rationality in India I remain silent. My uniform silence is always intermingled with deep sense of remorse. For the reason that world would not have known what science IS, but for us {The Indian’s}. Whenever a question is asked as to who invented ATOMIC THEORY OR NUCLEAR ...THEORY the un-contradictory answer is one of the western scientist. Wrong it’s an Indian by name: ACHARYA KANAD (600 BCE) who was the FOUNDER OF ATOMIC THEORY.

As the founder of "Vaisheshik Darshan"- one of six principal philosophies of India - Acharya Kanad was a genius in philosophy. He is believed to have been born in Prabhas Kshetra near Dwarika in Gujarat. He was the pioneer expounder of realism, law of causation and the atomic theory. He has classified all the objects of creation into nine elements, namely: earth, water, light, wind, ether, time, space, mind and soul. He says, "Every object of creation is made of atoms which in turn connect with each other to form molecules." His statement ushered in the Atomic Theory for the first time ever in the world, nearly 2500 years before John Dalton. Kanad has also described the dimension and motion of atoms and their chemical reactions with each other.

The eminent historian, T.N. Colebrook, has said, "Compared to the scientists of Europe, Kanad and other Indian scientists were the global masters of this field."
