BANGALORE, INDIA, MARCH 27, 2001: The Government's University Grants Commission's decision to "rejuvenate the science of Vedic Astrology in India" by starting departments of Vedic Astrology in Indian universities has infuriated the scientific community. The guidelines said that it would add to a new dimension for research in the fields of Hindu-Mathematics, Vastushastra, Meteorological Studies, Agricultural Science, Space Science. The rationalist and Marxist-leaning scientists are complaining they should have been consulted before the addition of subjects "cloaked in the garb of pseudo-science."
