Minister ridiculed for saying India invented Internet
    2018-04-24  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

AN Indian minister has been mocked after he claimed the Internet was invented thousands of years ago by ancient Indians.

Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb while addressing a public function last Tuesday evening said the ancient Hindu epic Mahabharata indicated that ancient India had Internet and satellite communications.

“Internet and satellite communication had existed in the days of Mahabharata. How could Sanjaya [the charioteer of King Dhritarashtra] give a detailed account and description to the blind king about the battle of Kurukshetra? It means Internet was there, the satellites and that technology was there at that time,” he said.

He said that European nations and the United States may claim that it is their invention, but it is actually India’s technology.

“Internet and satellite system had existed in India millions of years ago. The richest culture belongs to our nation and I feel proud of it. Even today in Internet and software technology, we are ahead. See Microsoft, it may be a U.S. company but most of its engineers are all from our country,” he added.
