Theory of Gravity was elstablished by Sir Isaac Newton! The topic is about physics!
Not about India!
However if you are interested in Indian education sytem - here is some information.
 British ruled India untill 1947 for about 200 hundred years and did establish British education system there.   Then there were quite a few  Roman Catholic institutes due to monastraries.    Then there were muslim education systems, left over of Moghuls.  Then there were Hindu schools and monastaries! 
Post Independance, mainstream education in India/Indian schools are based on British education system!  But there are others as well.   India does have IITs, IIMs, IISc, and school of medicines etc..   Many of them have obtained admission in US and European well known universities at a later time!  Old Indian vedic science is not tought in mainstream schools now.    Many people learn about vedic science as an area of specialised Interest there!
 There are many Indian American scientists in America!  I am sure that there are many in europe as well! 
Hope that helps!

John, Azamat, Rich

We have to agree that Whole is more than sum of parts such as life which generally obeys physics, chemistry etc. For example if a creature (non flying) falls down, it has to suffer consequences of acceleration due to gravity thus life may be lost but not the constituent matter. Thus in some philosophies the consciousness is the continuum that binds it all living or non-living!


What an interesting way to explain the Indian viewpoint!  I have never heard it done in a way that fits with the present scientific knowledge so clearly and convincingly!  Thanks for the vivid description.  Much better than the mysticism, funny creatures and odd names you usually see in non Indian-born projections of the same things. You must be educated in both eastern traditions and western science; am I correct?





How will that fit into realism, nominalism or reductionism or will it be excluded by those - by limiting our understanding to living or non-living matter - who have not followed that line of reasoning?
