The Greeks had the highest rate of advancement. Rome destroyed the legacy of Greek scientific advancement and were only obsessed with architecture.

List is insignificant when compared with that of China. India was/is behind in China in almost everything for almost all of its history.

Insignificant?!!!!!

go and tell the same to the chinese, even they wont accept it

India is one of the gems in the world civilization, one of the four ancient civilizations (Sumeria, egypt, china, Indus)

India is one among the two continuous civilization (other one is china)

Cotton from India
wootz steel from India
Rice cultivation from India
Mathematics (Place value system, algebraic equations)
philosophies
arts
science

in which field India lagged from other civilizations?

cotton from india, silk from china
siddha concept from india, taoism from china
jainism from india, confuism from china
varmam from india, shaolin from china


Indians took some western technologies to china eg. automated weaponaries from ionia which chinese now showing to the world as theirs

Tamil scriptures mentioned an Indian king took the concept of Parachuting to China around 6 ad

During the Alexander invasion, the soldiers of India used arrows with firepower, this one traveled to China, Chinese developed to next level as rockets, which once again indians developed by using metal casing rockets and finally Europeans made into modern missiles

Have u heard about Bogar? his works about medicines popular in siddha medicine, in one of his works he mentioned about parachuting, but i dont know in which work

Also tamil sangam literature mentioned automated weapons of Ionian/roman origin in palaces, these machines called as yavanar pori "Ionian machines".

In Mummy 3, a chinese weapon shown as an automated arrow throwing machine in the initial scenes

such kind of machine also mentioned in Tamil literature as "norruvar koli", but instead of pointing out chinese origin , the tamil works mentioned it as roman or greek machine

the use of arrows with firepower (naptha?)

the third-century Roman writer Flavius Philostratus, who described sages in India who "do not fight an invader, but repel him with celestial artillery of thunder and lightning, for they are holy and saintly men."

the above description is nothing but use of arrows with firepower

heard about Tipu Sultan and rockets?

Mysorean rockets - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tell me if we had firepower than why were we lacking when fighting the Muslims. A few scattered literary references is no proof that something existed as the ancients of those days believed in lots of fantastical ideas.

As I said it is fact that for over 90% of history China has exceeded India in every way possible.
