    It is a great honour for me to have been invited to deliver the first
    Professor G.C. Pande Memorial Lecture. It was my privilege to meet

    others. Hopefully a genuine awareness of the field will grow in India too,
    where it has been studiously ignored in mainstream academia. What is
    often overlooked, however, is the cultural framework within which those
    advances took place, a framework that discernibly oriented some of the
    advances of Indian science.

    India, a
    knowledgecentred
    civilization with
    intellectual
    traditions
    nurtured for
    at least three
    millennia, has
    contributed
    her fair share
    of innovations
    to the fields
    of astronomy,
