5 Little Known Indians With Amazing Tech Inventions
Bangalore: India was been a land of many inventions in the past. The number ‘0’, chess, first in medicine (Ayurvedha), first surgery (Sushruta), first to discover and make diamond ornaments, first to extract zinc and a lot many ‘firsts’. However for some reason, lately, Indians are growing more to be a service class population than an innovative one, and so there are not many big inventions to the name of India. And even if there are some real inventions achieved, they do not make it to main stream media, hence stick to their oblivion. Here is a small attempt to highlight some of the little known Indian inventors with amazing inventions.
