A nation of 1,3 billion people is definitely a major player. Therefore news from the 106th Indian Science Congress were adopted with much frowning. As Indian prime minister claimed that many centuries ago hindu scientists invented stem cell research. Another claim concerned 24 different types of aeroplanes that – as Nageshwar Rao, vice chancellor of Andhra University, said – were owned by Indian demon Ravana in former ages.
As we learned by Donald Trump, Nigel Farrage and the likes, now accompanied by Narendra Modi, you only have to have a patient and obedient audience to claim any crap you want. Cheers!
