About the Author

After getting an M.Sc. degree in Mathematics form Lucknow University he obtained Ph.D. degree in the area of his specialization "Aerodynamics", Department of Aerospace Engineering at 1.1.Sc. Bangalore, where he was subsequently appointed as Lecturer. In the year 1967 he joined the Department of Aerospace Engineering at 1.1.T. Bombay and continued to remain there as Professor. During that period he carried out studying and teaching of different subjects related to the field of Aerodynamics, held various administrative responsibilities, guided researches and projects, published research papers, made educational tours abroad and wrote a book entitled "Flight Performance of Aircraft" which was published in U.S.A.

Soon after retirement in 1995, Prof. Ojha got interested in studying, teaching and research in the area of Indian Culture. Due to his initiative one-semester course on the subject of Indian Culture got started from the academic session 2002-2003 in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at I.I.T. Bombay and he taught it also there. Prof. Ojha also wrote a book (about 700 pages of bigger size) on the subject of Indian Culture. It is entitled BHARATIYA SANSKRITI MAHAN EVAM VILAKSHANA (Indian Culture Great And Wonderful) which is in Hindi Language. Based on the contents of this book.

MODERN YOUTH are prone to think that the whole passing scene having changed so materially, with new scientific theories emerging, as also with an amazing abundance of gadgets making for a lifestyle of comfort, it is no longer relevant to give importance to ancient thoughts and beliefs. This apparently logical thinking is in reality not so, because modern science has failed to answer a number of important and basic questions relating to human life. Indian Culture (Bharatiya Sanskriti, Vaidik Culture, Sanatana Dharma, or Hindu Dharma) asks, has human life been embellished by going to the animal level? No advance of any type is in evidence in the qualities of modern man, in his nature, character and conduct. On the contrary, despite a growing number of material facilities becoming available, there is at times a strange sense of emptiness, of incompleteness, that overwhelms us. No change for the better has taken place in today's environment, which is full of mental stress, hostility and animus, strife, fraud and obscenity. Rather, we see these tendencies growing to an alarming extent at many places. Modern science has not yet been able to demolish the fundamental principles of Bharatiya (Indian) culture, which still endure as eternal verities. This culture has never denied the basic discoveries of modern science, because it has itself expounded them as proof of the cause-effect principle (i.e. every activity has some cause, this principle) that governs the manifest world, which it is essential for man to understand.
