'Modern science not alien to India'

 This was the theme of the lecture delivered by chemist-turned-historian and philosopher of science BV Subbarayappa at the Indian Institute of World Culture here on Saturday.

Speaking on "Science, religion and philosophy in India", the former president of International Union of History and Philosophy of Science, UNESCO, underscored the need to find out whether religion and science had a retarding effect on the growth of modern science in the country.

He said that traditional sciences like Indian astronomy and related mathematics, medicine, plant science, etc had flourished in the Vedic religious matrix. Hence, it was necessary to learn whether they could coexist with modern science in India as well.
