India, land of dreams and spirits, of fabulous wealth and culture, of splendor and glory, is the only land through ancient times, whose enigma and charm lies in its imperishable in-depth knowledge of science and technology.
Last week, IIT Roorkee under NSS, had the privilege of having Shri Malayaj Garga, an alumni of IIT Kanpur, best -selling author of “THE HOLY GITA- The Discourse”, deliver an inspiring and thought-provoking presentation on ”The Scientific And Rational Tenor Of Srimad Bhagvad Gita”.

The book has answered several questions that have baffled great scientists over long time such as the big bang theory, fascinating topic of dark matter and energy. Atom and its constituents were already mentioned in this 5000 year old legacy. “Vasudeva Sarvam Iti”, as Shri Garga puts it correctly, is the crux of Gita and a key to profound mysteries which means that a higher consciousness or ‘Chetna’ pervades all living beings. Quoting several verses from Gita, he emphasized that even our minds and thoughts are a part of this powerful information storehouse which is responsible for striking a perfect balance and harmony among the elements and processes of nature. His creative approach to presenting interesting facts and enthusiasm for the credibility of the laws of physics, singularity, knower and the known, birth and death resonated with all of us. The time invested to achieve such a well-crafted message, which takes discipline and persistence, grabbed great admiration and applause.
