A short documentary on a research-based book entitled “Great Minds on India” by Salil Gewali, has recently been launched by a Mumbai-based media house — Manthanhub. This documentary in Hindi will again be rendered into English and other regional languages of India. The research-based book by Gewali is translated into eleven languages and the forward of the book is written by a world-acclaimed NASA chief scientist – Dr. Kamlesh Lulla of Houston, USA. The book has won the appreciation of many eminent scholars from across the world. The book is held as being one of its kind to showcase for the first time how the ancient wisdom of India inspired the thinkers, scientists and writers from the western world. During his research, Mr. Gewali had experienced many ups and downs and monetary hardship which he has emotionally described in his article in the book “My Discovery of India”. The first edition of the book was published in Xerox format in 1998; and when the print edition was out in 2009, the book immediately attracted the attention of many scholars, and consequently,  the then Governor of Meghalaya – RS Mooshahary personally consented to formally launch this landmark book.  The title has also been recognized and officially launched by the Government of Gujarat, Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh.

One scholar from Meerut says, “This landmark book, as said by many scholars, is a Bhramastra to fight the evil of pseudo-secularism and anti-nation forces plaguing the country now! Firstly, this book should be gifted by Shri Narendra Modi-ji to all the top celebrities and diplomats – like Amitabh Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar, Rajni Kant, Manjul Bhargav, Laxmi Mittal, Mukesh Ambani, Anil Ambani, Lata Mangeshkar, Navjot Singh Siddhu,…. When these celebrities will receive this unparalleled booklet they will themselves start speaking in the public forum about our so-far suppressed truths about INDIA as incorporated in Salil Gewali’s work. This finally will only and exclusively benefit the nation and our so-far misinterpreted and denigrated culture and its associated literature.  Nobody can refute the words and opinions spoken by the world-renowned intellectuals like TS Eliot, Ralph Emerson, Voltaire, Goethe, Hegel, Herder, Schiller, Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, Carl Jung.”

The researcher Shri Salil Gewali lives in Shillong, Meghalaya, who regularly writes inspiring articles in order to create awareness about the ancient wisdom of India and its contribution to the world in the development of the modern science, mathematics, linguistics, metallurgy, psychology, and other areas of studies.

A world-acclaimed book research-based book entitled 'Great minds on INDIA' (Bengali version) ---- authored by a Northeast-based writer and researcher Shri Salil Gewali, has been launched by the Governor of West Bengal Shri Keshari Nath Tripathi at Raj Bhavan, Kolkata.

By Dr. Naresh Goswami, Dibrugarh, Assam 

A world-acclaimed research-based book entitled ‘Great minds on INDIA’ (Bengali version—- authored by a Northeast-based writer and researcher Shri Salil Gewali, has been launched by the Governor of West Bengal Shri Keshari Nath Tripathi at Raj Bhavan, Kolkata. The special function organized for the book-release was attended by a galaxy of scholars, academicians and representative of various colleges, universities, media houses, and social organizations.

The Governor heaped praises on Gewali’s work by saying —- “The book showcases the exceptionally rich civilization of India and its remarkable contributions to the world in the development of the Modern science, Mathematics, Linguistic, Metallurgy, Cosmology, Psychology, and other areas of studies.”

Quoting from Gewali’s book, the Honorable governor said —  “Twenty-four centuries before Isaac Newton, the Indian scriptures asserted that gravitation held the universe together. The Sanskrit speaking Aryans subscribed to the idea of a spherical earth in an era when the Greeks believed in a flat one.”  Emphasizing the importance of the book in the present contest, the Governor further added: “This title doubtlessly serves as a LIGHT of wisdom even to the educated who have lost their faith in the ancient heritage. Truly, the ancient knowledge has been held as eternal wisdom. Our most beloved eleventh President of India, eminent scientist — Dr. Abdul Kalam has regarded Vedas as the oldest classics and the most precious treasures of the East. Great philosopher, writer, poet and artist Rabindranath Tagore was highly inspired by the Upanishads and the works of the greatest Sanskrit poet Kalidas while writing his ‘Geetanjalee’. And Mahatma Gandhi, an epitome of peace, tolerance and non-violence whose works and lifestyles inspired many great scholars, statesmen, scientists and diplomats of the modern age, also admitted the Bhagawata Gita as a boundless ocean of priceless gems. Even VS Naipaul, the renowned author of ‘A Wounded Civilization’, admits the Eastern Wisdom as the noblest of all.” Finally the governor – Shri Keshari Nath, in his speech remarked — Unless we are awakened to the profound wisdom of Vedas, Upanishads and the Gita now, a day might not be that far when we have to send our children to Germany, France, USA.. to study them, and to know about India’s rich culture”          

This unique book has been translated into Bengali by Dr. RN Das and edited by Prof. Nirmal Maity of Kolkata which is originally prefaced by a NASA Chief Scientist, Dr. Kamlesh Lulla of Houston, USA.  This book is now being used as a textbook in some of the schools in Kolkata for students from Class -6 to 10.

The first original English edition unveiled in 2009 by then Governor of Meghalaya Shri RS Mooshahary, the book’s translated versions such as Hindi, Malayalam and Marathi editions have subsequently been launched by the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh and the Governor of Maharashtra and Gujarat in the years 2013 and 2015 respectively.

This landmark compilation of the quotes of world-famous luminaries, which is edited by a NASA scientist – Prof. AV Murali, has long been captivating the attention of the noted scholars from across the world. Robert Brenton of Brooklyn, New York says – “ ‘Great Minds on India’ is fantastic and a further testimony to the immense wisdom that comes from the great masters in ancient India, who saw the truth in ancient times and left it for us to ponder.

During his exhaustive research, Mr. Gewali realized that Modern scientists like Erwin Schrodinger, Niels Bohr, Julius Oppenheimer, David Bohm, Werner Heisenberg, David Josephson, and so on had sufficiently got the ideas related to Quantum Physics from the ancient literature of INDIA. Voltaire, Johann Goethe, Hegel, Emerson, Henry Thoreau were other front-ranking philosophers of the modern time who were inspired by the fathomless depth of the ancient wisdom of INDIA.

Lastly, in the book, the opinion by  one of the greatest poets of 20th Century – TS Eliot, swells our chest. Eliot writes in his ‘After strange God’ — “Indian philosophers’ subtleties make most of the great European philosophers look like schoolboys.”

Here again exclaims a prominent philosopher and critic of Germany – August Schlegel – “Even the loftiest philosophy of European appear like a feeble spark before the Vedanta.”
