"The FIRST nation in the world to have cultivated science is India! India is known for wisdom of its people. They have made great strides in the study of numbers and geometry. They have surpassed all other nations in their knowledge of science"- Andalusi, 11th century
"Indians have acquired immense information and reached the zenith of their knowledge in astronomy & astrology. They surpassed all other people in their knowledge of medical science and drugs' Their kings are known for their wise decisions” .

The Shahnameh (شاهنامه) of Ferdowsi, the National Epic of Persia, says all the best astronomers and savants of the world live in India. It also has 200+ references to the mighty Indian swords with golden scabbards, it seems Indian steel was the best in the civilized world.
The civilized world in the Shahnameh is talked of as India, Persia, China and Rum (Byzantine). Indian Physicians are described as the best, most skilled ones, with frequent references to Indian medicine books (which contain secret knowledge one must obtain).
Indian astrologers are seen as the most esteemed ones, Indian pens are common-use in the Sassanid court there is an entire chapter dedicated to the Indians gifting the Game of Chess to the Persians. The Raja of India gifts the Game of Chess to the Persians.
Perhaps the most interesting account is one which alludes to the fact that the Sassanid Kings had courtiers who knew the Devanagari script & Sanskrit whilst the Indians were educated in the Pahlavi script (and assumingly, Old Persian)
The book in reference here the 'Kalileh and Demneh' contained medicinal knowledge that was sought by the Persians. The book was translated to Persian by a Persian courtier at the court of the Indian King, later it was translated to Arabic.
Indian Sage Sushruta was the first plastic surgeon recognized by even Hinduphobic Columbia University
Quantum mechanics, the deepest theory of science, was created by Werner Heisenberg and Erwin Schrödinger. Let us take a look at their views -
Schrödinger: "Vedanta teaches that consciousness is singular, all happenings are played out in one universal consciousness and there is no multiplicity of selves."
Heisenberg, "After the conversations about Indian philosophy, some of the ideas of quantum physics that had seemed so crazy suddenly made much more sense."
