The Sceptical Patriot Exploring the Truths Behind the Zero and Other Indian Glories (Paperback) Price Rs.198 A delightfully tongueincheek yet insightful look at Indian selfperception and self deceptionIndia. A land where history myth and email forwards have come together to create a sense of a glorious past that is aweinspiring...and also kind of dubious. But that is what happens when your future is uncertain and your present is kind of shittyit gets embellished until it becomes a totem of greatness and a portent of potential. Sidin Vadukut takes on a complete catalogue of Indias Greatest Hits and ventures to separate the wheat of fact from the chaff of legend. Did India really invent the zero Has it truly never invaded a foreign country in over 1000 years Did Indians actually invent plastic surgery before those insufferable Europeans The truth is more interestingand complicatedthan you think.Interesting Facts A pathbreaking book that questions the legitimacy of a range of popular India facts be it theclaim that the country invented zero or the assertion that Indians have always been peaceloving or the belief that Sushruta was the worlds first surgeon. An important title that makes us reassess history and understand its significance. Is written in a style that is accessible humorous irreverent.
