Math and science lifted India

mky,

I never said what you are saying here. This is what I actually said:

'Comparatively, Indians have retained their traditional Hinduism. Like our abosum, they also worship: rivers (Ganges) the sea, trees, mountains, rock-stones, elephants, snake, and rat gods (in Ghana we eat these creature before they become gods!). But by historical accident we swallowed the white lies and shunned our gods. Result: traditional India has found its cultural self-confidence. This has propelled her to the pinnacle of space-age science and technology.'

Yes I visited India for 3 months. I noted in cities like Jaipur that they were a divided people along religious and ethnic differences. But my reasoning is that despite all these, India is focused industrially.

The operative words here are: traditional India, self-confidence; propelled, pinnacle, space-age, science and technology - DEVELOPMENT.

Regards.
