Ancient Indian astronomy and mathematics

“If there is one place on the face of this Earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when Man began the dream of existence, it is India.” -Romain Rolland ‐ French Philosopher 1886‐1944

In a previous article, I had written about the concept of jnana, and how it is different from vidya. In an another article, I had mentioned a few sages who attained jnana and contributed to the vast knowledge that existed in the Indian subcontinent, most of which are today attributed to foreigners. Well, the list continues-
