    Critics would say GDP is not a perfect measure of well-being, GDP does not directly measure those things that make life worthwhile, but it does measure our ability to obtain many of the inputs into a worthwhile life. Go India!!

    At the reception lobby of NASA’s sounding rocket facility, a painting caught the attention of APJ Abdul Kalam, then a young Indian aerospace scientist from India. It depicted one of the first usage of the rocket in a battlefield but what intrigued Kalam the most was the man behind these rockets – Tipu Sultan.

    So fascinated was he by the sight of Tipu Sultan at NASA that on becoming the President of India, he ordered a study into Tipu Sultan’s use of rocket technology. He even made a lengthy mention of the Indian ruler in his book The Wings of Fire.

    “… the painting caught my eye because the soldiers on the side launching the rockets were not white but were dark skinned, with racial features found in South Asia. It turned out to be Tipu Sultan’s army fighting the British. The painting depicted a fact forgotten in Tipu’s own country but commemorated here on the other side of the planet.”

    APJ Abdul Kalam in The Wings of Fire

    The advancing British East India company forces were tackled by Mysore army using several rounds of rocket fire, in the battle of Pollilur during the first Anglo-Mysore war in 1780. Even though the Chinese had experimented with rockets using bamboo, the effective weaponisation of the rockets is credited to Tipu Sultan and his army.

    “When Tipu Sultan was killed, the British captured more than 700 rockets and subsystems of 900 rockets in the battle of Turukhanahally in 1799 ... these rockets had been taken to England by William Congreve and were subjected by the British to what we call ‘reverse engineering’ today. There were, of course, no GATT, IPR Act, or patent regime. With the death of Tipu, Indian rocketry also met its demise – at least for 150 years,” writes Kalam.

    After becoming President, in 2006, Kalam sent a top Defence scientist to Srirangapatana in Karnataka to study Tipu Sultan’s efforts to use rockets against the British over 200 years previously.

    At the end of his visit to various sites associated with Tipu Sultan’s rocket launching activities at Srirangapatna, then Chief Controller of Research and Development at Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), A Sivathanu Pillai declared, “There is no doubt that this is the birthplace of rocketry.”

    “Now, I will report to the President what I have seen here (Srirangapatna). He (Kalam) is a rocket scientist. Naturally, he is interested to know,” Pillai had said.

    After this visit, Pillai said he would recommend President Kalam to build consensus in the community of rocket scientists that Srirangapatna was the birthplace of rocketry by holding seminars and other initiatives.

    From Tipu to Britain to USA and then back to India tx to Dr Kalam, India's Rocketry comes home!

    Tipu Sultan death anniversary: Admired by Abdul Kalam, Disowned the BJP

    Tipu Sultan, so admired by one of the most celebrated Presidents of India is about to be obliterated from history as BJP government in Karnataka prepares to remove all references to Tipu Sultan from the state text books.

    (This story has been reposted from The Quint’s archives to mark the death anniversary of Tipu Sultan. It was first published on 7 November 2019)

    At the reception lobby of NASA’s sounding rocket facility, a painting caught the attention of APJ Abdul Kalam, then a young Indian aerospace scientist from India. It depicted one of the first usage of the rocket in a battlefield but what intrigued Kalam the most was the man behind these rockets – Tipu Sultan.

    So fascinated was he by the sight of Tipu Sultan at NASA that on becoming the President of India, he ordered a study into Tipu Sultan’s use of rocket technology. He even made a lengthy mention of the Indian ruler in his book The Wings of Fire.

    But the BJP in Karnataka doesn’t share this fascination.

    Leave alone rocket science, school kids in Karnataka may not know Tipu Sultan at all as the BJP bats for wiping him out from History textbooks.

    Tipu Sultan’s story might be erased from the pages of History textbooks soon but when Kalam discovered the Mysore ruler’s story six decades ago, he felt it was a forgotten piece of Indian history his countrymen should know about.

    “… the painting caught my eye because the soldiers on the side launching the rockets were not white but were dark skinned, with racial features found in South Asia.

    Even though the Chinese had experimented with rockets using bamboo, the effective weaponisation of the rockets is credited to Tipu Sultan and his army. The replacement of bamboo with metal and some other key design changes in the late 1700s in Mysore are considered a turning point in rocket technology.

    ‘With Tipu’s Death, Indian Rocketry Met Its Demise’

    Later in the book, Kalam makes a crucial statement about how important Tipu was to the development of rockets. “When Tipu Sultan was killed, the British captured more than 700 rockets and subsystems of 900 rockets in the battle of Turukhanahally in 1799 ... these rockets had been taken to England by William Congreve and were subjected by the British to what we call ‘reverse engineering’ today. There were, of course, no GATT, IPR Act, or patent regime. With the death of Tipu, Indian rocketry also met its demise – at least for 150 years,” writes Kalam.

    The Study Ordered by Kalam

    After becoming President, in 2006, Kalam sent a top Defence scientist to Srirangapatana in Karnataka to study Tipu Sultan’s efforts to use rockets against the British over 200 years previously.

    At the end of his visit to various sites associated with Tipu Sultan’s rocket launching activities at Srirangapatna, then Chief Controller of Research and Development at Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), A Sivathanu Pillai declared, “There is no doubt that this is the birthplace of rocketry.”

    But the Former President’s attempt to tell Tipu’s story to Indians may remain incomplete as electoral politics now threatens to erase his story from history.

    Yes, this is true. A painting of 1780 Anglo Mysore War fought between British and Hyder Ali. This painting is displayed at NASA which in turn has recognized Tipu Sultan & his father Hyder Ali as pioneers of modern rocket technology.

    Yes, you can find several links on Google confirming this. The painting depicts the Anglo Mysore war between the British and Mysore forces. The British forces suffered their worst defeat on Indian soil because of the extreme devastation inflicted by the rockets used by Tipu Sultan’s forces.

    In fact, the legendary Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam once exclaimed, “I was proud to see an Indian (Tipu Sultan) being described by NaSA as a hero of warfare rocketry.”

    Tipu later became the only Indian King to die while fighting the British forces and this also brought an end to an amazing era of Indian warfare innova

    Actually its not of Tipu Sultan himself, but his army.

    At NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, Maryland, there is a painting showing Tipu Sultan's army fighting the British with rockets.

    Former President Dr. Kalam had visited the facility and it finds a mention in his book Wings Of Fire.

    Apparently, Tipu Sultan and his father were pioneers of rocket development in India, which is not widely known in India.

    What happened to Tipu Sultan's sons?

    I wrote my dissertation on the Vellore Mutiny, and it contains an entire chapter that deals with Tipu Sultan’s sons, and what became of them after the Sultan’s death in 1799. It’s available in India, and can be found here: Manohar Books

    (Note, I don’t earn any royalties from this, so I’m not pushing the book, just letting people know it’s out there.)

    Tipu Sultan’s sons were exiled to Vellore (about 90 miles west of Chennai), where they were placed in a palace complex that had once belonged to the Nawabs of the Carnatic. The British enlarged the complex so that each of the four eldest sons could
