College students in India are showing increasing interest in subjects like history and geography. This is a positive indication as while learning about history, aided with modern technology that makes research work easier, they are likely to identify the many chapters of so-called, fabricated “history” which in fact never took place.
The other hope is, while digging through historical evidences, they will be inspired to look deeper into ancient history instead of sticking to what is considered history these days. Ancient books in India, or Bharat, talks about mind-boggling science of subtle energy which is not known to modern science.
Mahabharat purana, which literally means the history of greater India, has evidences that exist even today but the modern historians are not able to understand certain events mentioned in there for want of sufficient scientific knowledge available today. This makes them call it mythology. Let us hope that this western influence on Indian students will be gradually wiped clean as the students take a deeper look into the history of the world.
Geography is another subject that needs to be explored beyond modern understanding of geography. If we look at the Vedic scriptures, we can find many eye-opening information not only about the earth but also about other planets.
