List of Indian Inventions

In earlier times, India was known as the “Golden Bird” as it was rich in resources, and India is considered as the best example of unity in diversity.

There is no doubt about the talent of the people that sojourn in India and our history has truly witnessed it. Indian people always believe in” simple living high thinking” and as you can glimpse the Indian inventions in this article you will come to know about the Indian Inventions so let’s have a look at that:-

Zero (0)

 In Indian history, the invention of zero was remarkable. The invention gave a new direction to mathematics and the credit for this invention goes to “Aryabhata”.

He was the first astronomers of the classical age and was born in 476 AD in kusumapura (patliputra) (presently Patna, Bihar) during the Gupta dynasty.

The contribution of Aryabhata in mathematics is immortal and significant and can’t be ignored. He not only gave us zero, but several other concepts were also introduced by him in the study of trigonometry, decimal system, arithmetic, and negative number.

In honor of the great mathematician Aryabhatt, Our Indian government has launched its first satellite named Aryabhata in 1975.

The Ayurveda

Ayurveda is known as the “science of life”. Ayurveda came into existence from the Vedas mainly from “Atharvaveda “In today’s era everyone has famously listened to this word even several people used Ayurvedic treatment to keep themselves healthy.

One of the main contributors to Ayurveda is “Charaka” who is also famously known as the “father of medicine”. It has been invented and practiced in India for more than 5000 years.

This ancient method of treatment is still used in the 21st century not only in India but all over the world. It is considered to be one of the oldest medical system as well as traditional

Cataract Surgery

Another break came in the field of medicine was cataract surgery and for it, we thank “Sushruta” who was an Indian physician and developed this in the 3rd century CE. With the help of the curved needle (called jahamukhi salaka) he performed cataract surgery which loosens the lens and pushed back in the eye.

For soaking, he uses the warm butter and placed a bandage till it healed. This surgery was successful and later it was extended all over the world.

USB (Universal Serial Bus)

In earlier times, it was a major problem to connect multiple peripheral or input/output devices to a computer. The solution to this problem was the invention of USB by “Ajay Bhatt” and his team, which was first introduced in 1995. The main aim of inventing it was “when you use a device, you just plug it in and it works”.

In old times, it was a struggle to connect any device to the computer or you may have a zoo of cables along with the connected device.

After the invention of USB, it becomes easy to transfer data and even use it as a memory stick. It is one of the groundbreaking inventions by India in the field of IT.

Fiber Optics

Fiber optics was invented by “Narinder Singh Kanpy” In 1956. He was an Indian physicist. The great honor he received when his name was considered among the seven “unsung heroes” in the businessmen of the century.

He is an IOFS officer and is an expert in technology transfer and management of technology.

Intel Premium Chip

It was invented by a man, who was an entrepreneur, inventor, and venture capitalist named “Vinod Dham” or we can say “father of the Pentium chip”. He was born in Pune in 1950. In 1990 he developed the Pentium processor.

His name was given under the top 25 executives in the United States computer industry as well as he was considered among the 100 most influential Asian Americans.  

Wireless Communication/Radio 

Most of the people are confused regarding this as people give credit of invention of radio to Marconi but it was not right as “Sir Jagdish Bose” was the first person to demonstrate the radio waves and also known as the “father of wireless telecommunication” He was less known for his work as he never patented his work.
