The present work attempts ot construct an integral history of sciences in India. Researches in philosophy of modern sciences over the lat half a century have given rise to new insights in historiography which the author exploits for construction of rational history. The origin of Indian cognitive history is systematically traced to Veda Samhitas and its subsequent growth decline and resurgence are explored in sastra Tantra and Vijnana phases in this brief and lucid presentation.
