Science and Technology in India: The Digression of Asia and Europe

Published: Feb 16, 2007 by History Compass
Authors: Aniruddha Bose
Subjects: History, Asian Studies

This article argues that science and technology were thriving in eighteenth-century India. The establishment of colonial rule however, ended the indigenous traditions of elite support disrupting the positive environment in which innovations had been occurring. These observations challenge assumptions held by many historians that relative to India, Europe grew rich in the nineteenth century because science and technology flourished in Europe alone.
