  • Sharebar

India has been one of the foremost centers of learning and intellectual inquiry in the ancient as well as contemporary age. The ancient university at Nalanda in Bihar was described as one of the earliest universities in the world. It propagated rationalism, scientific search for truth and a rigorous and disciplined inquiry into the nature of beings. The film claims that the traditions of scientific inquiry are being carried forward by Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). These learning centers foster critical thinking and emphasize on research geared towards solving practical problems.
