What have been the impediments of growth of Science in India?
Impediments of growth of Science in India – By the end of the eighteenth century, Indian society had become very complex. Hence it is difficult to discuss even one aspect of it, that of science, as it arose from this society and contributed to it, without over-simplifying. However, if simplification makes sense and does not distort the picture, it is a good thing, because it gives us an overview which helps in understanding the interaction between science and society.
What may have struck you from the brief presentation given here is that Indian science was at the same level as science anywhere else in the world In particular, it was at the same level as European science, upto about the middle of the sixteenth century. But, then European science took big strides forward and left Indian scienceway behind in the period that followed.
