The Digestion of Ganita into Mathematics

The Ganita tradition was erased from the history of Mathematics. One of CK Raju’s most important contributions is his cogent argument for a fundamental change in the way Math is taught in Indian schools and colleges.

Rajju Ganit workshop from today

June 25th, 2018

We have never re-examined our math education since independence to eliminate the trash myths and bad philosophy brought in by colonial education. Since people don’t understand the problems at the level of the calculus, this workshop takes up issues at the school level. For links, download the pdf of the poster.

Here Are 5 Myths About English That All Indians Should Stop Believing Right Away

Aug 09, 2016 at 18:21

by https://scoopwhoop.com/author/sankrant-sanu/

Recently, Uma Bharti remarked on the need to propagate Indian languages and how English becomes a barrier. Predictably, people on English news portals jumped on her remarks. 

Sample a comment on one such portal:

There are some enduring myths about the English language in India, particularly in association to “progress”, “technology” and “modernity”. As someone who went to an English-medium school in India, I myself subscribed to these myths. It was only when I traveled the world, to over 30 countries, that I realized our assumptions about English are that of frogs in a well.

When I was a manager at Microsoft, I visited my team at the Microsoft development center in Israel. This was eye-opening. I later spent a summer traveling in Indian villages and I realized the real cost of our assumptions about English. Contrary to the notions I had about English is necessary for science and technology or for India’s progress, I came to realize that India’s English-medium obsession is one of the biggest barriers to India’s development.

Here then are 5 enduring myths about English:

India’s English-medium obsession could be one of the biggest barriers to India’s development / Reuters

  • Myth 1: English is a language spoken by all well-educated, developed, technically-savvy people in the world

There are millions of people in the world who are well-off, well-educated and technically savvy and they don’t speak a word of English. When I was in South Korea, I found it to be an affluent country. However, it was nearly impossible to find someone who spoke English apart from the staff of the luxury hotel I was staying in. In China, I found a tech-savvy population and a proliferation of high-end iPhones. Yet, even at a fancy restaurant in Beijing, I found that not one person—from the wait-staff to the manager—spoke a word of English. I can’t imagine something like this happening in India. The staff at the Chinese restaurant asked me to type my order into their smartphone. They then used the Baidu app to translate it into Chinese.

  • Myth 2: MNCs do all their business in English; English is necessary for an MNC job

MNCs in all major countries operate in the local language. When I was at the Microsoft Development Center in Haifa, Israel, I was surprised to find that the language of communication was Hebrew, not English. Emails were in Hebrew, technical documents and discussions were all in Hebrew. This, when the entire population of Israel is less than that of Delhi. Similarly, Samsung, which is one of the biggest electronics manufacturers in the world with cutting-edge technology has a CEO who did his MBA in Korean. Samsung uses Korean in South Korea, uses Thai for office jobs in Thailand, but in India it uses English. MNCs choose to adapt to different countries of the world but in India, we bend backward assuming MNC means English.

  • Myth 3: English is India’s “competitive advantage” and necessary to develop India

This is the most enduring myth—that English has given India a “competitive advantage” in Information Technology. There are highly technically advanced societies, such as Japan, that do not use English. Some years ago I traveled to Indian villages armed with IQ tests. I found, to my surprise, that rural children outscored urban Indian children in IQ. English, as the language of higher and professional education, alienates these children. They find math easy but English hard. 

Chinese use local language in technology. For representation /Reuters

Even when it comes to outsourcing, the advantage is temporary. China’s programmers learn in Chinese and have teams with one outward-facing project liaison who speaks the client language. Thus, China is providing outsourcing to the US, using English, but also to Japan, using Japanese. Only about 5% of the world’s population is native English speakers and the importance of this segment will likely decline as the US and the UK decline as Economic superpowers. China is also investing in technological innovation, developing its own companies, like Baidu and Weibo for search and social networking while its entire technology education uses Chinese.

  • Myth 4: Indian languages are “not suitable” for science and technology education

Science is taught at the graduate level in dozens of languages across the world, from Japanese to Portuguese and from Thai to Polish. It is even written using the pictographic Kanji (Japanese writing system) script with thousands of characters. Even MS-DOS the command prompt operating system from Microsoft supported Kanji characters 30 years ago because the Japanese demanded it.

In Japan, students learn science in local language / Reuters

Indian languages, on the contrary, are highly scientific. They are phonetically sound and can express a range of sounds. They also have technical literature and vocabulary for hundreds of years. Sanskrit-based grammars also make it very easy to construct new words.

Hebrew was once considered a dead language, yet it was revived for science and technology education. Technion, Israel’s foremost engineering college is Hebrew-medium and is ranked much higher than the IITs. Languages need investment. India simply needs to invest in its languages and keep them contemporary. It is much easier to translate one thousand key books on science and technology than teach a foreign language to a billion plus people.

  • Myth 5: People want English, but the government keep pushing Hindi/Indian languages

It is, in fact, the other way round. It is English that is pushed in India by government policy. The government allows only English in the Supreme Court and most High Courts. Most top institutes, be it the IITs, the IIMs or the AIIMS, they are all funded by the government and operate only in English. Most government websites still use English as the primary language. But is this because people want it?

No, where people have a real choice, they prefer to consume Indian languages, not English. Only one of the top 10 newspapers in India is in English. As a percent, less than 10% of the newspaper readers prefer to read in English. English TV channels have an even smaller percentage of the audience. Thus, given a choice, most people would rather read and listen to their own languages.

It is the vernacular newspapers, and not the English language ones, that rule the market in India.

The demand for English arises because of flawed government policies that are pushed by the elite. We need to provide an equal opportunity to study Indian languages. This will allow deep technology penetration. English cannot be the vehicle for our development, rather it remains the biggest barrier to our progress.

Indian Mathematicians and Their Contribution to the World

It is no doubt that the world today is greatly indebted to the contributions made by Indian mathematicians. One of the most important contributions made by them was the introduction of decimal system as well as the invention of zero. Here are some of the famous Indian mathematicians dating back from Indus Valley civilization and Vedas to Modern times.

Astronomy Observations and Dating Ancient Indian History

Who is Nilesh Oak?
Inline image
Nilesh Oak was born in India. He received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from UDCT, Mumbai University. He immigrated to Canada, where he received his M.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Alberta. He received his executive MBA from Emory University. He works for a Fortune 500 company. He is interested in Astronomy, Archaeology, Anthropology, Quantum Mechanics, Economics, Mythology, and Philosophy. Nilesh Oak resides in Atlanta, Georgia.
In a drastic re-evaluation of astronomy observations from Mahabharata, using the high-tech tool of modern astronomy and low-tech tool of the logic of scientific discovery, Nilesh Oak’s extraordinary book presents an ordinary theory of astronomy observations that would lead to a quantum jump in our understanding of the Mahabharata War: 
Acceptance of his theory leads to surprising conclusions about our current understanding of world civilizations, domestication of horses, dating of Ramayana or Vedas and antiquity of meticulous astronomy observations. Rejection of his theory would compel us to search for the likes of Newton and Lagrange, among the Sages of India, at least a thousand years before Sir Isaac Newton & Joseph-Louis Lagrange

R. Nagaswami is an archeologist, art historian, epigrapher, numismatist and a great Sanskrit and Tamil literarist. He is an eloquent speaker, has published 54 books, and produced 13 dance dramas apart from conducting excavations in 10 historic cities as part of his Archaeological work.

Dr. Nagaswami demolishes Dravidianism

Tirukkural

Dr. Nagaswami is famously known for his books with decades and decades of research supported by hard evidence of scriptures which help dismantle all the wrong things written about our heritage and our history, all the divisiveness between Sanskrit and Tamil, Vedas, and Tamil culture and how Tamil culture is very much influenced by Vedas and how it is a part of the Indian culture, a limb of the whole society of India and not an isolated culture.

Tamilnadu – The land of Vedas
 Tamil Nadu-The Land of Vedas, a book by Dr. Ramachandran Nagaswamy. Image source: www.tamilartsacademy.com
A lot of misinformation is being spread that Vedas is an Aryan thing and Dravidians were oppressed and what not and Dr. Nagaswami is proving that Tamilnadu is a land of the Vedas. During Sangam age, a large number of Tamil poems are written during this period but they are structured as defined and classified as Bharata’s Natya Shastras. Also, the thousands of temples are based on Agamas, Vastushastras, and Vedas. The Tamil language is brought by the Vedic sage Agastya. Agastya taught both the Tamil and Sanskrit to the Pandya kings.

The Myth of St Thomas

“When looking at the literature on the life of St. Thomas, it is not mentioned anywhere that he came to India. It is only a myth, which has now been connected with the excavations at Pattanam, near Kodungalloor,” – Dr. R. Nagaswamy

Appropriation and Digestion

Appropriation and Digestion
Take a look at systematic appropriation, digestion, Inculturation, indigenization, alteration of Hindu devatas, scriptures, rituals, festivals, temple architecture, dance forms, music, drama and more by Christians. Every component of Hindu culture and life is being targeted!

As Hindus, we dance and sing our philosophy. Our highest literature is our philosophy. Our culture is never separate from our religion. When one says Namaste it is culture and it is also religion and also it is religious wisdom that we have got to back up religion.  

When the Lord of Nritya Sri Ganesha and Sri Nataraja are quietly removed out of Rangamancha, when in the ‘Bharata Natyam’ Sri Vishnu and Sri Shiva mudra is replaced by Jesus mudra, when in the traditional lamp the Shankha, Chakra, Gada, Padma, and Hamsa is replaced with a Cross, when the famous bhajan ‘Krishna Nee Begane Baaro’ is changed to ‘Yesu Nee Begane Baaro’, when the devotion is taken out of the Nritya then it is called ‘Christian Bharata Natyam’. One may argue why Christian Bharata Natyam cannot be devotional? The Answer is simple. One who has left one’s own religion and has appropriated its culture will never be able to fill his heart with devotion. When one leaves his religion the culture leaves that individual too. 

The Christian Bharata Natyam has presented at the Vatican a few years ago. This appropriation, indigenization, alteration, digestion, and inculturation is happening for many years. The Vatican accepts and even promotes such inculturation to retain and protect converts in their own comfort zone.
What is Inculturation?
The Oxford Dictionary defines Inculturation as the gradual acquisition of the characteristics and norms of a culture or group by a person, another culture, etc. Simply put, Inculturation is the adaptation of Christian liturgy to a non-Christian cultural background.
What is Appropriation?
1. A deliberate act of acquisition of something, often without the permission of the owner.
2. The action of taking something for one’s own use, typically without the owner’s permission.
What is Digestion?
1. The absorption  of ideas
2. The process of absorbing  or the state of being absorbed
What is indigenization?
1. The infusion of indigenous ideas, values, peoples, symbols, aesthetics, procedures and an authentic history into an organization so that it is as thoroughly a product of indigenous imaginations and aspirations as it is of western or settler ones.
2. The fact of making something more native; the transformation of some service, idea etc. to suit a local culture, especially through the use of more indigenous people in the administration, employment etc.
3. Bring (something) under the control, dominance, or influence of the people native to an area.
What is Alteration?
1. Change that does not affect the basic character or structure of the thing it is applied to
2. The process of making a change in the appearance or form of something
Appropriation of Hindu Temple Architecture(Devalaya Vastushastra)
Churches are being built like temples to fool the Hindus and convert them.  
Here is how they copy HINDU TEMPLE ARCHITECTURE BUT it is a REAL CHURCH :

Appropriation of Devatas
Call it inculturation, digestion, appropriation, indigenization or trickery. Hindus are fooled into believing that Christ is just another Devata, Mother Mary is a Devi. Their idols are made to appear like Hindu gods. Missionaries perform Hindu like rituals. Poor gullible Hindus fall prey to it. All Hindus must learn from Sarna Tribals (Vanavasi) to protest against missionaries.

how Jesus as a yogi is being used for conversion propaganda
