BHUBANESHWAR : Efforts are on to revive the ancient ‘stitched ship technology’ practised by Indians to build ships centuries ago, Sanjeev Sanyal, Author and Member, Economic Advisory Council of the Prime Minister said here on Tuesday.
In his keynote address at the three-day National Dhara Event-‘Samudramanthan’, organised under the aegis of ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ in Odisha, Sanyal said India was the only country after which an ocean had been named.
India, he said, wielded enormous influence in South East Asia through its trade, culture and geo-politics during the time.

Coinciding with the inauguration of the historic Bali Yatra at Cuttack, the event has been organised by the Indian Knowledge System Division of Ministry of Education in association with the Ministry of Culture to focus on the state’s glorious seafaring history and create the Vision Document on maritime traditions-2047.
The program was inaugurated at the SOA Deemed to be University here on Tuesday with speakers shedding light on India’s maritime history.
The event will include panel and roundtable discussions on the country’s maritime history locations, traditions, ship building, navigation, trade and cultural exchange, maritime security and international law which will be held at the Odisha Maritime Museum at Cuttack over the next two days.
National Coordinator, IKS Division Prof. G S Murthy said ‘Samudramanthan’ was part of the Dhara series of events which focused on India’s past history and achievements while endeavouring to connect the same with the present and prepare an action plan for the next 25 years.
The Dhara events held so far, he said, included India’s contribution to the field of mathematics, India’s calendar system, Astrophysics and Astronomy, Ayurveda and Martial Arts.
