Thank you for the effort, but the link you mentioned in this comment is not working :
Dentistry, dental drill, and dental surgery: The Indus Valley Civilization has yielded evidence of dentistry being practiced as far back as 7000 BCE. This earliest form of dentistry involved curing tooth related disorders with bow drills operated, perhaps, by skilled bead craftsmen.The reconstruction of this ancient form of dentistry showed that the methods used were reliable and effective.

Baudhayana: The original mathematician behind "Pythagorean theorem".

Baudhayana (c. 800 BCE) was a BHARTIYA mathematician, the first one ever to arrive at several concepts in Mathematics. What is known as "Pythagorean theorem" today is already found in Baudhayana sutras, wich was written several years before the age of Pythagoras.

Speed of light in Rig Veda :

Sayana, a vedic scholar from the 14th century once said: "With deep respect, I bow to the Sun, who travels 2202 yojanas in half a nimesha".

A yojana is 9 miles; a nimesha is 16/75 of a second. Therefore 2202 yojanas × 9 miles × 75/8 nimesha = 185,794 miles per second or 2.99,000 kilometres per second.

That's astonishingly close to the real scientifically proven' 3,00,000 kilometres.
It's widely consensus that his source was none other than the Vedas.

During the 6th Century BCE, an Indian physician named Sushruta – widely regarded in India as the ‘father of surgery’ – wrote one of the world’s earliest works on medicine and surgery. The Sushruta Samhita documented the etiology of more than 1,100 diseases, the use of hundreds of medicinal plants, and instructions for performing scores of surgical procedures – including three types of skin grafts and reconstruction of the nose.

Skin grafts entail transplanting pieces of skin from one part of the body to another. Sushruta’s treatise provides the first written record of a forehead flap rhinoplasty, a technique still used today, which a full-thickness piece of skin from the forehead is used to reconstruct a nose. At that time, patients in need of that procedure generally included those who had lost their noses as punishment for theft or adultery.

Today, surgeons use skin grafts to restore areas that have lost protective layers of tissue due to trauma, infection, burns, as well as to restore areas where surgical intervention has created a loss of skin, as can happen with melanoma removal. Some grafts include blood vessels and muscle, such as in reconstructive breast surgery.

Amazingly, these techniques are all explained in the Sushruta Samhita.



This really blew my mind when I read it. We had such an advance civilization in our glory days.
