Myths messing up Mainstream science

This is terrible.

We seem to be living the 'Indians have invented everything, the westerners stole it fro us' nightmare. Not much hope for Science n Technology when the Minister in charge is someone who (an MPhil in Chemistry) espouses the belief that triangular flying machines existed in India 'thousands of years' ago.
