i did not expect anything different.
now wait until they 'find out' that zheng he was actually the first person to explore the moon :-)
they make so much noise about this guy, what is pathetic is that all he did was sail around a bit.
on the other hand, raja raja chola in 1017CE sent an *expedition* with hundreds of ships all the way to sumatra and defeated the maritime srivijaya empire! that was the *greatest naval feat in history* until the invention of steamships and metal hulls and big naval guns in the 19th century! bigger than the famed spanish armada, probably the first thing that eclipsed it was the russo-japanese war and the victory of admiral tojo in the yellow sea in 1905.
not surprisingly, given the marxist-oriented history of india that we learn, there is no mention of this in india's textbooks.
