Research Projects/ Trans-disciplinary Studies

It is a well-known fact that India and Indians were at the forefront of Science and technology for many centuries. Our ancient Indian knowledge systems contain abundant amount of information regarding various sciences and technologies. Significant research and projects with Premier Research Institutes on combining wisdom of Science and Technology that prevailed in ancient India like metallurgy, chemistry, food processing and aviation are being conducted throughout the world. Samskriti Foundation has focused on the following fields to bridge the gulf between the past and present by undertaking pioneering research with regard to:

  • Research on protection of environment and sustainable development of natural resources
  • Ancient Indian knowledge systems abound with information about ways and means of protection of environment and sustainable development of natural resources that will facilitate peace and prosperity for a long long time to come. This is most relevant in today's scenario where the environment has reached the brink of collapse due to gross imbalance. Natural resources are being misused and abused for fulfilling selfish ends. Practical and theoretical research is being conducted by the Foundation for devising standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the protection of environment and sustainable development of natural resources.

  • Preparation of herbal pesticides and herbal beverages for well-being
  • This is a natural progression of the previous activity. As is well-known,humans are facing unprecedented occurrences of various diseases in their lives.Many of these diseases do not have proper cures in the modern medical systems. This frequent occurrence of diseases is being correctly attributed to the fact the food we consume is utterly poisonous since they are grown by using chemical fertilizers which are greatly hazardous to our health. Similarly, people are also getting diseased because of the frequent consumption of soft drinks like Coke that are said to contain poisonous nano particles. To overcome these problems and promotion of indigenous technology, the Foundation has undertaken the task of developing, organic, natural herbal fertilizers and pesticides and herbal beverages that also cause rejuvenation. These herbal fertilizers and pesticides and herbal beverages will be made available to the public soon.

  • Comprehensive research on water purification,water management and conservation
  • Another major problem society faces today is the availability of pure water. Water is the elixir that sustains human and all other forms of life in this Universe. If water is polluted, there is no doubt that all forms of life will become endangered. Today, we see that in most of the cities, the ground water is greatly polluted and is therefore causing untold misery to people at large. It is to overcome and prevent this dangerous scenario the Foundation has undertaken a detailed literary study and practical experiments based on the literary studies, resulting in a Comprehensive programme for water purification, water management and water conservation. It is presently soliciting support from interested funding agencies in this regard.

  • Speech Recognition and speech synthesis for Computers
  • The Foundation is associated with versatile scholars and scientists who are experts in Speech Recognition, which is one of the most important fields of Artificial Intelligence. So far speech recognition systems that are perfect in all aspects have not been developed. However, the Foundation is in the process of developing a speech recognition system based on the Indian works of phonetics that has been authored by sages of yore like Panini and Vyasa. It is presently soliciting support from interested funding agencies in this regard.

  • Indigenous Information security systems
  • The Foundation is also on the verge of undertaking projects that are aimed developing Information security systems using the knowhow available in the ancient Indian Sanskrit works and develop technology that is indigenous and foolproof.
