In 1997, on the 4th June, Shri K.S. Sudarshan had delivered a talk on “Hindu Dharma Ki Vaigyanikata”, in the Kalakunj Auditorium, Kolkata, on the invitation of the Friends of Tribals Society.
Shri Sudarshan, now Sarsanghchalak of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, was then its Sah-Sarkaryavah. He is a leading thinker of our country, a telecommunication engineer by qualification, having deep and clear knowledge and understanding of India’s ancient culture, philosophy, history and literature as well as modern sciences. This lends him a profound vision of the future of India.
It was a sheer chance that I happened to see a booklet in Hindi, containing the aforementioned talk of Shri Sudarshan. After going throught it, I felt that these thoughts must also reach our English speaking friends in India and abroad.
That was on the 31st May 2002. For some reason, I couldn’t take up the translation work immediately and it was only in August that year that I could do so. It is always difficult to bring the soul of the original work in a translation. A subject as profound as the Hindu Dharma in the context of modern science, future compounds the difficulty, However, the clarity of thought and simplicity of expression, which characterise the speaker’s presentation in Hindi, made it a little easier for me to render it in English, my own limitations notwithstanding.
The original booklet was brought out by Shri Vimal Lath of the Friends of Tribals Society, 19 Ganga Prasad Mukherjee Road, Kolkata. I have taken the liberty of presenting this translation, with sincere thanks to Shri Lath and the society, in the hope that the message contained herein would reach a larger number of people they will be benefited by it.
