Guglielmo Marconi, an inventor, engineer and a Nobel prize winner is believed to be the founder of radio broadcasting, but however, it was an Indian scientist Jagadish Chandra (a Bengali by origin) who prematurely conducted the experiment using millimeter range wavelength microwaves and ringing bells.

SNAKES AND LADDERS

Snakes and ladders once enjoying the status of the favorite indoor game in England have its origin in India, stemming from a game used to teach Hindu Values to children in which ladders represent virtue and the snakes evil. The historic name for the game is ‘Mokshapat’ or ‘Moksha Patam’ the main objective of which is to get to Vaikuntha (heaven). However, the religious and moral aspects were erased which the game originally incorporated to make it suitable for the British market.

Little did he know that his invention would revolutionize the way in which we connect our electronic devices. Mr Bhatt got public recognition after appearing in a television advertisement for intel in 2009 and also for winning The European Inventor award in the non-European category in 2013.

Innovative reservoirs and systems connected to individual houses have been found in this Bronze Age civilization which now forms present day Kashmir.

SHAMPOO

Shampoo now is a vital part of our daily life. It makes us feel fresh, smells good and adds to the beauty of our hairs. A shower without shampoo is like eating idli without sambhar and is unthinkable. The primary version of shampoo was first made in India in the 15th century by boiling Sapindus (a shrub and member of lychee family), amla (sort of Indian gooseberry) and other herbs. British colonial traders were the earliest to introduce shampoo in Europe. However, it took several hundred years to make it reach to the common masses.
