The Daily Digest: Indian Science(fiction) Congress?

Kamala Thiagarajan, Writer and freelance journalist | Sohini C, Journalist

14-Jan-19 14:00

The

As published in an NPR report and an SCMP article, some speakers in the Indian Science Congress made several unscholarly claims. These claims include how an ancient demon-king had planes and that India had been making test-tube babies for thousands of years. How did a prestigious science platform end up spouting pseudoscientific ideas? We speak to the journalists behind the articles.

Correction: It was Sohini C's South China Morning Post article that referenced a press clarification about why one of the speakers might have told mythological stories around science, and not the NPR article.
