It’s Brahmagupta-II who discovered law of gravity, claims Rajasthan education minister

first_imgRajasthan Education Minister Vasudev Devnani has said that Brahmagupta-II discovered the law of gravity before Isaac Newton. Speaking at a programme at Rajasthan University here on Monday, he asserted that Brahmagupta-II came up with the gravitation law a thousand years ago.“We all have studied that Newton gave the law of gravitation, but delving deeper, we can find that Brahmagupta-II came up with the theory of gravitation 1,000 years before (Newton). Why don’t we include this fact in the curriculum,” Mr. Devnani asked. The Minister said the school curriculum was changed and close to 200 Indian personalities, including Rajput king Maharana Pratap, were included. He also stressed that education should be value-based. The Rajasthan Minister, who is not new to controversies, had last year claimed that cow was the only animal that exhales oxygen while quoting a research website.last_img
