  • Archaeo-metallurgical study on two early historic punch marked coins

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A metallurgical investigation was carried out on two early historic silver and copper punch marked coins. The objective was to study the metal composition, and the methods used in making of the early historic coins in India. The inductively coupled mass spectrometry was used to analyze the elemental composition of the coins. Metal formation and its mechanical properties were studied in physical metallurgical laboratory. The study revealed that the coins were not pure metal but an alloy. The silver coin contained copper as a major alloying element with other elements viz., V, Fe, Zn, Sn, Pb, As, Au in trace level while in copper the coin lead was the main alloying element with Ni, Fe, As, Au and Co in trace.

  • Institutionalization of veterinary science in colonial India

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This brief report examines the origin of the Western veterinary medical science and development of various veterinary medical Institutions in India during the colonial period. The veterinary science has been in existence in India since the ancient period. During the medieval period, the animal husbandry was also paid attention. But, with the expansion of British rule, the whole scenario of animal husbandry practices changed in India. The cattle diseases such as Cattle Plague (Rinderpest), Foot and Mouth Disease, Anthrax, Haemorrhagic Septicaemia, Blackquarter etc. were widespread and these had an adverse effect on the economy and public health in India There were no veterinary schools and colleges to control the animal diseases during the pre and early colonial period. The Indian Cattle Plague Commission (1869) recommended the establishment of veterinary institutions under the colonial management. As a result, Imperial Bacteriological Laboratory was established at Poona (1890); further, shifted to Mukteshwar in 1893 with a branch of Izatnagar (1913). Within a decade of its introduction nearly half a million doses were being administered annually. The introduction of the Western veterinary science was an important landmark in the history of the Indian animal husbandry. The beginning of animal vaccination was an important milestone which ushered in the process of immunization for the animals.

  • Parallels of Gundestrup cauldron interior art with Indic motifs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Scholars have debated the cultural context and image interpretations for the approximately 2000-year-old Gundestrup cauldron since its burial discovery over 125-years-ago in Denmark. Many, including the author contend that it is a ritual object and its five inner-plate scenes seem to depict stories and rites, perhaps seasonal/celestial. The evidence supporting the Thracian or the ‘Celtic’ origin is thought less likely by some due to recent technical studies and changing opinions, causing many to revisit the ideas of never knowing what the scenes depict. Building on an old hypothesis that three Indic motifs inspired three bowl interior motifs, we find two candidate Indus seal impression-plate motif pairs potentially showing parallels for all five inner-plates. Since art critics have not completed detailed evaluations for all five pairs, the author made a visual, descriptive, stylistic, and interpretive analysis using art criticism-theory. The inability to find enough bowl-Indic motif matches, made the past south Asian linking arguments doubtful, but when judged in toto, this paper makes a strong case that all five cauldron interior motifs can be shown to have definitive parallels with five Indic motifs. The study holds promise for a search for further potential parallels between Indic and cauldron art using pictorial narratives, combining art and literary criticism-theory.

  • Colonization of personality psychology in India: historical roots and
           contemporary status

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The origin of present-day Euro-American personality psychology is rooted in the Western notion of individualism. It locates its history in post-industrial revolution of Europe and the post-enlightenment era of America. However, considerable evidences suggest that the study of personality, in terms of different typologies of mental and physical attributes of a person, constituted one of the core areas of enquiry in the ancient civilizations of the world namely India, Babylonia, Egypt, China, Greece, and Rome. Such contributions of ancient civilizations hardly find intellectual space in epistemological terrain of Euro-American personality psychology. India, being one of the ancient civilizations, contributed significantly in this area. But, personality studies in the contemporary India largely subscribe to Euro-American conceptual and methodological frameworks. Against this backdrop, the paper tries to revisit the journey of personality psychology beginning with its inception in the rich intellectual traditions of ancient India vis-à-vis the other civilizations of that time, its debacle in medieval period and its colonization under the hegemonic policy of the Europeans and Americans in modern time. Continuing with the tradition of decolonization movement of psychological science, the paper, using critical theories perspective, tries to delve the way the British regime colonized personality psychology India. Taking insight from liberation psychology, the paper, finally, proposes some strategies to decolonize or rather indigenize personality psychology in India.

  • Unsuccessful FRS nominations from colonial India

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the early decades of the twentieth century, several pioneers of modern science in India were nominated for the Fellowship of the Royal Society. Apart from those who got elected, the others who were not elected also had high reputation among their peers and were usually nominated by British scientists who were aware of their scientific contributions. This paper discusses six Indian scientists who were nominated for FRS during the era 1913–1939 but were not elected: P.C. Ray, D.N. Mallik, Raghavendra Row, N.R. Dhar, S.K. Banerjee, L.K. Ananthakrishna Iyer. In some of the cases, their nomination certificates (available at the Archives of the Royal Society) are the best compact statements of their scientific achievements, and it is not easy to find more information about some of them.

  • Whiggism, creativity and the historiography of technoscience

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: To what extent should historians allow the circumstances of their time influence judgement and understanding of the past' This question was first famously raised in 1931 by Herbert Butterfield and, following his lead, the viewing of the past through the lens of the present came to be called whiggism. And ever since Butterfield, conventional historiographical wisdom has dictated that whiggism should be avoided at all cost. However, in the realm of certain ‘special histories’ such as those of science and technology, a critical factor intrudes not normally thought of in political, social or economic historiography: creativity. Such histories are ‘special’ not only because their respective domains demand specialized knowledge on the historians’ part but also because they are histories of creative work. In this paper we argue, drawing upon episodes in the history of computing that the historiography of such creative domains as technological invention and scientific discovery fully justifies adopting a whiggish interpretation.

  • Genius and premature birth: little evidence that claims about historically
           eminent scientists are accurate

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A number of very eminent and highly creative individuals are often claimed to have been born prematurely, and the idea that widely recognised scientific geniuses such as Newton, Kepler, and Darwin were preterm has become a cultural meme through the popular press, and through popular and academic science books. This potentially raises very important questions, related to the nature and origin of creativity and innovation, as it has been suggested that prematurity and genius may be linked. Here, we review suggested links between prematurity and genius, in terms of psychological traits associated with genius, and compare the percentage of top geniuses in Murray’s Human Accomplishment who are claimed to have been born prematurely to that of Western populations in general. Although a significant number of those in Murray’s sample have been asserted to be preterm, we found that none of them could be said with certainty to have been so, refuting the hypothesis that there is a clear connection between prematurity and scientific genius.

      Abstract: The paper attempts to understand various environment friendly approaches in the production of khadi fabric with special focus on carbon footprint. The detailed information about raw material, manufacturing process, utilization of energy and water during manufacturing of cotton khadi from yarn to fabric was sought. The information obtained was with respect to waste management, by-products of the manufacturing process, nature of air pollutants and toxic substances if any, produced during the manufacturing process. The khadi is considered 100% natural, it is handspun and hand-woven and does not rely on electric units. The manufacturing process does not generate toxic waste products.

  • A papier-maché human anatomical model used in the Madras Medical
           Establishment in the 1830s

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: An untitled 2-page notice by a Madras Civil Servant John Morris sleeved under ‘Scientific Intelligence’ in the inaugural issue of the Madras Journal of Literature & Science (1834) refers to a human anatomical model built by Louis Aujoux, a French physician–anatomist–model maker. Highly likely this model was used at the Madras Medical Establishment to teach basic medicine to trainees of the Subordinate Medical Service. This was brought to Madras by Surgeon George Knox of the Madras Medical Establishment in the early 1830s, before the establishment of the Madras Medical School under the superintendence of William Mortimer. A similar model was acquired by the Calcutta Medical Establishment a little earlier. The present article, keeping the human anatomical model as the central element, refers to the development of interest in designing human models for purposes of teaching medicine in Europe. That interest stimulated using such models in India as well. The present article also refers to the medical interests of the scholar–princes of Tanjavur and Travancore of the nineteenth century India, who maintained models of full human skeletons, not of bones but made of ivory, in their Curiosity Cabinets (Kunstkammern). From the 2-page notice of Morris, we understand that the model that came to Madras from France was a gift to the Government of Madras for teaching purposes. No further details are traceable.

  • A Brief History of the Fertilizer Nitrogen

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The history of the fertilizer nitrogen (N) is important, because it includes two very important events in the development of chemistry. The synthesis of ammonia is considered as one of the greatest scientific discovery of twentieth century which led to the award of two Nobel Prizes in Chemistry to two German chemists; Fitzgerald Haber in 1919 and Carl Bosch in 1931. A significant increase in food production in the world is ascribed to the fertilizer N that saved many from hunger, misery and mortality, especially in Asian countries, where population growth has been too fast. However, the fertilizer N has also been responsible for environmental degradation, by increasing nitrate (NO3) content in ground waters, inland waters including lakes and rivers and marine waters leading to mortality of fish and other water creatures. Some N is lost as nitrous oxide (N2O), which is responsible for the depletion of the ozone layer in the earth’s atmosphere. Efforts are therefore underway to develop more efficient N fertilizers.

  • Could the “case for Revising the Date of Vedāṅga Jyotiṣa” be
           flawed'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In “A case for Revising the Date of Vedāṅga Jyotiṣa” Narahari Achar (Indian J Hist Sci 35(3):173–183, 2000) has proposed a date of 1800BCE for the composition of Vedāṅga Jyotiṣa and the star δ Cap as yogatārā of nakṣatra Śraviṣṭhā. The study presented here demonstrates that neither a unique epoch of Vedāṅga Jyotiṣa nor a unique yogatārā of nakṣatra Śraviṣṭhā can be determined with the criteria proposed by Narahari Achar. Moreover, the proposed yogatārā does not satisfy the configuration of celestial objects at the start of a yuga described in Vedāṅga Jyotiṣa.

  • Putting Nicobar Islands on the map: Intersections of colonial knowledge,
           trade and colonisation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The study of colonial knowledge has shed new light on the process of trade and colonisation within the Indian Ocean world in the early modern period. This article analyses select examples of colonial knowledge of the Nicobar archipelago during the seventeenth and eighteenth century to reveal how information transmitted from the islands to Europe, and within Europe combined to produce interest in the Nicobars and culminated in colonial outcomes for these islands in the late 1700s. The article demonstrates the importance of science, technology and information in furthering trade with the Nicobar Islands and thereby the intra-Nicobar economy; as well as in facilitating colonisation by the Danish East India Company.
