“We can feel proud of what our country achieved in medical science at one point of time. We all read about Karna in the Mahabharata.

That is why Karna could be born outside his mother’s womb.
We worship Lord Ganesha. There must have been some plastic surgeon at that time who got an elephant’s head on the body of a human being and began the practice of plastic surgery.”
–Indian Prime minister Narendra Modi
“Aero planes were invented by a Hindu sage 7000 years ago. The planes could travel from one planet to another, halt in mid air and move sideways”.
