Sciences Had Their Origin In India:

“There is no end to the power a man can obtain. This is the peculiarity of the Indian mind, that when anything interests it, it gets absorbed in it and other things are neglected. You know how many sciences had their origin in India. Mathematics began there. You are even today counting 1, 2, 3, etc. to zero, after Sanskrit figures, and you all know that algebra also originated in India, and that gravitation was known to the Indians thousands of years before Newton was born”

After reading these lines of Swami Vivekananda, it is of laughable fact to listen to intellectuals of the world saying - "But for coercion of Western Scientific inventions to India, it (India) would have remained lagging by centuries ".

First Nuclear Weapons Test Of Atomic Bomb:

Instead of getting into the reason why these perceptions of intellectuals are wrong, NOW!!! Let us continue towards the central theme of today’s greatness in history. Today of July 16th of 1945 is when first nuclear weapons test of Atomic Bomb was conducted by United States Army - " Code Named : Trinity “. Two days before the Trinity Test, Oppenheimer “Father of the atomic bomb” expressed his hopes and fears by quoting a quotation from Bhagavad Gita:

“In battle, in the forest, at the precipice in the mountains,
On the dark great sea, in the midst of javelins and arrows,
In sleep, in confusion, in the depths of shame,
The good deeds a man has done before defend him”

After witnessing the mushroom cloud resulting from the detonation of the world's first atomic bomb in New Mexico, U.S.A; J. Robert Oppenheimer again quotes from Bhagavad – Gita saying: - If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One. . . . Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds“

Permutational Questions To Reflect On This Momentous Day Are:

Was this first test ever done on Nuclear Energy and Atomic Science? And is J. Robert Oppenheimer the first to be called “The Fatherof the Atomic Bomb" and should John Dalton be considered the pioneer of Atomic Theory?

Research of history literature does fall shot to shed light on the direction to proceed in answering these questions...Web site's, test books of world does state these facts, but is there truth in it? And for certain even J. Robert Oppenheimer who, having bathed in India literature of Knowledge would accept that he should be the first to be called the “Father of Atomic Bomb" Nor Will John Dalton (English chemist, meteorologist and physicist best known for his pioneering work in the development of modern atomic theory sometimes referred to as Daltonism) would accept these facts.

For the reason, 2500 years before John Dalton (Born 6 September 1766) there was an Indian known as ACHARYA KANAD (600 BC). He is believed to have been born in Prabhas Kshetra near Dwarika in Gujarat and 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 25 centuries before John Dalton). Acharya Kanad had 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."

Is India lagging by centuries Or Is it that World is lagging by incremental centuries when compared to Indian Scientists and Indian mind !?
