Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur

DCF Workshop in Bengaluru

THE SANDHI SERIES IS A TEN-part collection of articles (bit.ly/sandHI) that explore India’s traditional knowledge systems. Selected academic experts present their exhaustive research on such topics as cosmology, metallurgy, mathematics, architecture, ayurveda, ecology and agriculture. The articles, inspired by the Science and Heritage Initiative (SandHI), are curated by Amita Sharma, former additional secretary in the Ministry of Human Resources Development.

The series’ particular focus is India’s material and intellectual historical discoveries that are foundational to our modern fields of science, mathematics, technology and medicine. The articles are often rather complex and academic, but well worth exploring.

Sthapatis and their indigenous designs seamlessly adapted topographic and climatic exigencies

Scholarship in architecture and building techniques has time and again urged us to study the scientific and sustainable rational embodied in evolved indigenous systems. Such practices have often adapted seamlessly to the topographic and climatic exigencies of our subcontinent. Moreover, they are also perceived as collaborative rather than confrontational; thus offering suitable solutions to the alarming man-nature conflict.
