To mark the centenary of the Indian Science Congress, it was proposed to bring out a comprehensive but easily understandable treatise for the general readers, covering the History of Science in India. This publishing program has been divided into several volumes such as Science in the historic past, Renaissance Phase, and strategies adopted through Science and Technology in facing the present day challenges in life.The entire series starts with the present volume which covers only the contributions, in brief, of a few of the Indian scientists of the Renaissance phase. These savants of science were responsible for laying the foundations of modern science through their original contributions, discoveries, formulation of basic theories, as well as for building up schools of research, institutes, councils of research and science departments in this subcontinent.
