India and Indians

How many times do you think that meteorological department had given the correct weather forecasts? I am not trying to demean the work that they are involved at, yet I am trying to convey that whenever there are forecasts, vagaries are bound to be present. If weather is predicted based on some formations and patterns from regional historical data, why cannot the people also take in astrology too? Astrology is a study of position of planets at one’s birth and the predictions are arrived from the influence of these planets that are arrived from studying combinations present in historical data. Is astrology been neglected because the founding fathers are Indians? Why are we trying to accept the theories that are propounded by Europeans or Americans? Why are our traditional medical sciences like Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Unani and Siddha seeing a decline? The side effects of allopathic treatment are very conspicuous, yet our indigenous medical sciences could not replace the allopathic system. How many of our Indian allopathic doctors appreciate our medical sciences and suggest these as an alternative to allopathic system as and when possible? The whole point is that we should not neglect something just because it is old and incomprehensible. And more importantly we should not neglect something that is Indian and that belongs to India.
