PREAMBLE.

The humanity is witnessing seemingly unprecedented fast track progress in the field of science and spirituality in the 21st century. ICT (information and communication technology) has accelerated this progress in manifold ways. A few sensible brains across the planet globe earth have got seriously and serially connected to derive the maximum positive benefits of the most ancient global scientific heritage, rightly identified as the Vedic/Sanskrit Sciences. A project is being initiated to establish a Foundation for Indian Scientific Heritage (FISH) in Bhavnagar, Gujarat under the patronage of a few enlightened citizens.
The available Vedic/Sanskrit resources explicitly hint at the amazing and unimaginable scientific data of a variety of disciplines which are relevant even today. This unerringly points at a unique traditional research methodology involving less or nil external physical technology. Its links are not totally lost to the posterity. The Vedic research and development least affected the cosmic harmony and global peace. “Om Shantih, Shantih, Shantih” is the warp and woof of ancient scientific innovations and initiatives.
The Common man’s Participation.
The proposed project envisions common man’s all round progress in and through daily life and active participation in this project. India has a very vast ethno-botanical knowledge base in the villages. Only the common man has access to it. Many valuable traditional disciplines are embedded in the village life. These are to be gathered and decoded without the negative interventions of civilization. This project endeavours to appraise the prevailing modes of culture and heritage transfer (if at all it is taking place) to the younger generation.
This project discerns the need for the revival of intergenerational transfer of culture and heritage. The ever living culture of Bharat is richly resourceful to accommodate and adjust to modern requirements. It effectively responds to the challenges raised by the negativities of modern civilization.
Our Action Plan.
• Tracing out Indian traditional research methodology.
• Creating Vedic Sciences database.
• Developing Sanskrit as a Research Tool.
• Survey, updating and application of local ethno-botanical resources in daily life.
• Identification, documentation and verification of traditional methods of health management.
• Organizing Indian scientific heritage awareness campaign, online and
offline.
• Implementing NFSE (Non Formal Sanskrit Education) Programme.

Our Sources of Inspiration.
This project is Consciousness Computer (human brain) generated whose ‘brain-child’ is the modern computer. And traditionally available consciousness software is the main source of our inspiration. This software is in the living memory of a very few and rare resource persons by whose blessings the project is taking shape and gaining ground.
The timely, innovative initiative of Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan (Deemed University) under MHRD, Govt. of India has given birth to NFSE which provides a cutting edge to prepare the ground and field for the unfailing transfer of our culture and scientific heritage to the elder and younger generations.
The present project adds to it the NFSE as a plug in programme.
IISH, Indian Institute of Scientific Heritage, Trivandrum, Kerala is a unique NGO which serves the cause of spreading scientific and spiritual heritage awareness among the people of India. IISH is an inspiration to every heritage citizen of Bharat. The present project draws abundant material from IISH.
