Summary

For over 3000 years, the Indian subcontinent has contributed to fields as diverse as mathematics and science, spirituality and philosophy, as well as music and literature. In this absorbing book, Shruthi Rao profiles 20 legendary Indians who dared to think differently and changed the world—from starting a new religion based on the principles of compassion and peace; to creating the first set of rules for grammar; to discovering the existence of black holes, and so much more. 20 Indians Who Changed the World is as informative and well-researched as it is inspiring—a book every Indian can read with pride.
