This book has a small chapter on telescopes in Ancient India also… which is interesting and useful.
Some caution is advised while reading.
- For eg “the word kancha” is mentioned in the yajur veda : fact.
- “Yajur Veda is of 1200 BCE” : an assumption based on many other assumptions about the date of the Yajur Veda
- “Kanch means glass” : We have to consult Kasysapa’s Nighantu plus Veda Mantras to find out in what sense that word was used in that mantra at that time.
I think this book is a worth a look-see .. It is available in IISc library.
