Hard to watch. Math, science, economics - west's RIGHTS and advancements in these areas, they never recognize Indian degrees. After watching this series I found out that syllabus we had school and college is century old (pre world war). It is taught in a very boring way esp higher education. But what really happened after those wars and freedoms - instruments, gadgets... practically from West? In curriculum they add physics (to confuse students) and computer science (to make it look modern and justified). Computer science, mathematics, education and subjects with high element of social sciences - thus have to be local. That is why I still don't understand, have our needs changed or are we changing them according to what is available! This series' worst part is they way Indian mathematics is shortened - Vedic Mathematics is perhaps not yet popular, rarely understood. Jantar Mantar part was good. I felt that segment on India has not been presented well. But no doubt - no good books to study vedic math and computer math without a teacher.
