A Brief History of the Indian Software Industry

India’s software history perhaps can trace its origins from within the ancient Indian texts, the “Vedas” (derived from the root “vid,” meaning “to know”). These texts, which lay stress on abstract, logical, and rational thinking, form the basis of all Indian learning and education. Vedic mathematics is based on sixteen “sutras” or word formulae that describe the way the human mind naturally works, and direct one to the appropriate analysis and solution, often with only mental calculations.
