I am pretty sure we dont know our own history instead of me coming to conclusions and shoving it down your throat I would wait until the day when we
can unearth our own history. Well in fact someone has already has some piece of information right there for you.....

ou may want to add that, you may not be able to keep yourself from adding that, but that doesn't make it true. No one in India even knew how to write
in 5000 BC, much less solve matrix equations, or whatever you're getting on about here.
Unfortunately that is what we are led to believe .The Indus valley civilization is actually older than was thought earlier[ and is perhaps as old if
not older than the Egyptian civilization]. Also they did have a writing system even way back in 5000 BC as is evident from the Harrapa and Mohenjedaro
seals. I was also quite surprised to know that the speed of light is actually cited in the Rig Veda....Ostensibly our understanding of what we refer
to as history continues to evolve.
"The hymn 1.50 of the Rigveda on the Sun, says
[O Sun] you who traverse 2,202 yojanas in half a nimesa.The usual meaning of yojana is about 9 miles as in the Artha´saastra and for nimisha.
The measures of time are thus defined in the Puranas:
15 nimesa = 1 kastha
30kastha= 1 kala
30 kala = 1 muhurta
30 muhurta = 1 day-and-night
A nimesa is therefore equal to 16/75 seconds. It does come very close to the correct figure of 186,000 miles per second.”
