Dr Subhash Kak is Regents Professor Emeritus in electrical and computer engineering at the Oklahoma State University, US. He is also a globally renowned Vedic scholar. His latest book is ‘The Idea of India: Bhārat as a Civilisation’.
In an exclusive interview with The Australia Today, Dr Kak speaks about his book, which is a condensation of new research that provides an authentic picture of what India meant to its own people and those living in West Asia, Europe, and East Asia.
The evidence provided in the book also touches upon India’s contributions to world science and its influence on its neighbours. It also has translations of nine popular Rigvedic hymns as well as an essay on Yoga.
Dr Kak in his interview with Pallavi Jain also speaks about the link between quantum physics and Hindu Vedanta philosophy. He mentions that one of the key people behind the theory of quantum mechanics was a ‘Vedantin’ (Vendantin is a person who is a follower of the Hindu Vedanta philosophy which is based on the teachings of the ancient Hindu scriptures the Upanishads). Any guesses who Dr Kak is talking about?
