I will start off with Science. There are two different types of Science in India, first the Medical Science, and then the Astronomy Science. In the Medical Science the Indians created two hospitals, one for people, and the other for animals. They also conducted surgeries. These surgeries were performed at their houses.

Indians found many other stars but later on became planets, they found seven out of 9 this includes Pluto. Furthermore, the Technology in India was very advanced. They were hard-workers when it came to civil engineering and working with standardized weights. The Indians built the World’s First Dock. This was discovered in Lothal, India. Many people were amazed and astonished by this because they couldn’t believe the Indians were able to tame the Sabarmati River. They also believe that the Indians studied tidal movements.

This can mean that the Indians used the scale and cube to measure the pool and make it straight corners. Many...
