No sane person will ignore the greatest contribution made by Europeans in the field of science. In fact, modern science and modern medicine have been entirely the creation of Europe. As I have said before, European mind is a scientific mind. Other cultures haven’t produced Newtons or Einsteins. At the same time, there are no Shankaracharya, Budhha or Jesus in Europe.

Just happen to notice something funny in the list provided above by one Roy. Not sure who actually compiled the list.

And RampaNNA, how could those racist masters leave out Indian ‘inventions’/feats such as:

1. The world’s first 1st Test tube baby was born in Hastinapur.
2. Ancient Indians flew interstellar ( to heck with intercontinental travel).
3. The first head transplant was carried out in ancient India.
4. Ancient Indians built the first aircraft.
5. Dritharashtra watched ‘TV’.

Chess can be added to the South Asian list, Kabbadi is debatable since it is not played outside the subcontinent. Basketball is played and Saxophones are used by musicians all over the world, American football may not belong in the list. The list is of contributions that are used in all parts of the world.
