STATE TIMES NEWSJOHANNESBURG: Swami Vivekananda Cultural Centre, Johannesburg (South Africa) has started an online series of lectures unfolding threadbare presentations on the contribution of India to the world. The series is aimed at telling the world about the wondrous beauties of India where it stood the earliest cradle of ethics, arts, sciences, and literature. The first of the series was presented online over social media by Balwant Thakur, the Director of Swami Vivekananda Cultural Centre, who outlined the fields where India has contributed immensely. Referring to the recently concluded International Day of Yoga, he said that art of yoga is the biggest gift of India to the world. In the times of corona crises, he said, yoga practice is proving to be the ultimate support to the people who are facing stress and immunity crises. India has given to antiquity the earliest scientifically physicians, and, according to Sir William Hunter, India has even contributed to modern medical science by the discovery of various chemicals and by teaching you how to reform misshapen ears and noses. Even more it has done in mathematics, for algebra, geometry, astronomy, and the triumph of modern science -mixed mathematics-were all invented in India, just so much as the ten numerals, the very cornerstone of all present civilization, were discovered in India, and in reality are Sanskrit words. In manufacture, India was the first to make cotton and dye. India has invented the game of chess and the cards and the dice. Balwant Thakur, Director SVCC Johannesburg (South Africa) presenting the lecture on India’s contribution to the world.
