Whenever an Indian says that ancient India was very much specialized in technology, medical science and space science, we see a bunch of people pouncing on the individual who made that statement. Few India-hating intellectuals are of the thinking that India’s contribution to the world is Zero (not Aryabhata’s Zero).
Now the left leaning intellects have faced a severe blow after the Columbia University stated that Indians knew the art of plastic surgery since more than 2500 years. The Columbia University stated “During the 6th Century BCE, an Indian physician named Sushruta – widely regarded in India as the ‘father of surgery’ – wrote one of the world’s earliest works on medicine and surgery. The Sushruta Samhita documented the etiology of more than 1,100 diseases, the use of hundreds of medicinal plants, and instructions for performing scores of surgical procedures – including three types of skin grafts and reconstruction of the nose”.
