Western endorsement required

We need endorsement from the West to believe in our own history.
I wrote  a very detailed half page article in the Indian Express in the 90s which was unfortunately published in the Tuesday special supplement called 'Science Express' because I had titled the article as  Rauwolfia Serpentina, [in brief in a 7th century BC sanskrit text one  Vagbatha  mentions about  this plant and its ability to control BP and from that there were clear links to many researches based on that mostly by Indians leading to discovery of the wonder drug for BP Reserpine [even today that is the basic drug for controlling BP]  for which two British scientists got Nobel prize in 1950s [fortunately and thankfully it was they who traced and recorded the history of the drug development giving credit to all the Indian scientists who did the initial research]
