Ms. Caroline Hagen, a german scholar will be translating the book in the German language.

A book on Indian wisdom, which has been formally prefaced by NASA Chief scientists and authored by the researcher Shri Salil Gewali of Meghalaya, is now is going to be translated into the German language by a scholar from Germany – Ms. Caroline Hagen. Another scholar from Berlin, Germany — Mr. Max Herz has offered to assist in editing the book. When Ms. Caroline got Gewali’s book some months back, she was overwhelmed with joy as she got in the book most of the information about the opinions of Arthur Schopenhauer and German Nobel laureate Harman Hesse on ancient knowledge of India. Harman Hesse is highly celebrated for his novel – “Siddhartha” which is set in Indian doctrine of salvation and the philosophy of karma of Buddhism. Very Interestingly, Harman Hesse dedicated a part of his Siddhartha novel to a renowned French laureate Romain Rolland who again was deeply inspired by the wisdom of Vedanta of ancient India. A yoga enthusiast, Ms Caroline instantly resonate with what Gewali’s book set out — particularly the influence of Upanishads in Germany and other European countries in 19th Century.


The book by Salil Gewali showcases how the ancient wisdom of India inspired great minds and the same book will be translated in the German language.


Caroline Hagen comments – “I am very proud to be able to translate Salil Gewali’s book into German. Despite the modern western culture’s affection to old Indian practices, particularly the wisdom related to yoga and meditation, very few know about the influence Indian philosophy that has had upon ‘our’ most popular thinkers like Schopenhauer, Johann Goethe, and Hesse. These great literary figures have stated at places that their work couldn’t have existed without the influence of the Upanishads and the work of Kalidasa like Shakuntala.” No wonder, Albert Einstein always looked upon Arthur Schopenhauer for inspiration.

The search-based book by Salil Gewali showcases in the words of the world-renowned thinkers, writers and scientists that how the ancient wisdom of Indian inspired them and became immensely instrumental in their researches and discoveries.

Just three minutes of exposure to deep red light once a week, when delivered in the morning, can significantly improve declining eyesight, finds a new study.

Just three minutes of exposure to deep red light once a week, when delivered in the morning, can significantly improve declining eyesight, finds a new study. The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, found there was, on average, a 17 per cent improvement in participants' colour contrast vision when exposed to three minutes of 670 nanometre (long wavelength) deep red light in the morning and the effects of this single exposure lasted for at least a week.

However, when the same test was conducted in the afternoon, no improvement was seen. "We demonstrate that one single exposure to long wave deep red light in the morning can significantly improve declining vision, which is a major health and wellbeing issue, affecting millions of people globally," said lead author, Glen Jeffery from the University College London.

As the world reopens after 18-20 months of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns, a new variant of the coronavirus -- called B.1.1.529 -- has been identified in South Africa

As the world reopens after 18-20 months of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns, a new variant of the coronavirus -- called B.1.1.529 -- has been identified in South Africa that has left the scientific community worried, as they fear that this new strain could fuel outbreaks in several countries and cripple health systems once again. Over 100 cases have been detected in South Africa, where the new strain is slowly becoming the dominant one.

Here are five things you should know about this deadly super Covid variant that has forced a number of countries, including the UK, Israel, Italy and Singapore, to restrict travel from South Africa and other countries in the region.

1. According to South African health officials, the 'B.1.1.529' variant has many more mutations than scientists expected, especially after a severe third wave, which was driven by the Delta variant. Many of the mutations are of concern for immune evasion and transmissibility.

2. B.1.1.529 carries a high number of mutations in its spike protein, which plays a key role in the virus' entry into cells in the human body. The B.1.1.529 variant has 50 mutations overall, including more than 30 on the spike protein alone which is the target of most current Covid vaccines.
