ARYABHATTA (476 CE)
MASTER ASTRONOMER AND MATHEMATICIAN
ARYABHATTA
 Born in 476 CE in Kusumpura (Bihar), Aryabhatta's intellectual brilliance
remapped the boundaries of mathematics and astronomy.
 In 499 CE, at the age of 23, he wrote a text on astronomy and an unparallel
treatise on mathematics called "Aryabhatiyam“. He formulated the process
of calculating the motion of planets and the time of eclipses.
 Aryabhatta was the first to proclaim that the earth is round, it rotates on its
axis, orbits the sun and is suspended in space - 1000 years before Copernicus
published his heliocentric theory.
 He is also acknowledged for calculating p (Pi) to four decimal places: 3.1416
and the sine table in trigonometry. Centuries later, in 825 CE, the Arab
mathematician, Mohammed Ibna Musa credited the value of Pi to the
Indians, "This value has been given by the Hindus“. And above all, his
most spectacular contribution was the concept of zero without which modern
computer technology would have been non-existent.
 Aryabhatta was a colossus in the field of mathematics.
BHASKARACHARYA II (1114-1183 CE)
GENIUS IN ALGEBRA
BHASKARACHARYA II
 Born in the obscure village of Vijjadit (Jalgaon) in Maharastra,
Bhaskaracharya's work in Algebra, Arithmetic and Geometry catapulted
him to fame and immortality.
 His renowned mathematical works called "Lilavati" and "Bijaganita" are
considered to be unparalled and a memorial to his profound intelligence. Its
translation in several languages of the world bear testimony to its eminence.
 In his treatise "Siddhanta Shiromani" he writes on planetary positions,
eclipses, cosmography, mathematical techniques and astronomical equipment.
 In the "Surya Siddhanta" he makes a note on the force of gravity: "Objects
fall on earth due to a force of attraction by the earth. Therefore, the earth,
planets, constellations, moon, and sun are held in orbit due to this attraction“.
 Bhaskaracharya was the first to discover gravity, 500 years before Sir Isaac
Newton. He was the champion among mathematicians of ancient and
medieval India.
 His works fired the imagination of Persian and European scholars, who
through research on his works earned fame and popularity.

theory. He has classified all the objects of creation into nine elements,
namely: earth, water, light, wind, ether, time, space, mind and soul.
 He says, "Every object of creation is made of atoms which in turn
connect with each other to form molecules“. His statement ushered in the
Atomic Theory for the first time ever in the world, nearly 2500 years before
John Dalton.
 Kanada has also described the dimension and motion of atoms and their
chemical reactions with each other. The eminent historian, T.N. Colebrook,
has said, "Compared to the scientists of Europe, Kanada and other
Indian scientists were the global masters of this field."
NAGARJUNA (100 CE)

renowned contributions to the science of chemistry.
 Where the medieval alchemists of England failed, Nagarjuna had discovered
the alchemy of transmuting base metals into gold.
 As the author of medical books like "Arogyamanjari" and "Yogasara" he
also made significant contributions to the field of curative medicine.
 Because of his profound scholarliness and versatile knowledge, he was
appointed as Chancellor of the famous University of Nalanda.

He formulated the process of calculating the motion of planets and the time of eclipses.  Aryabhatta was the first to proclaim that the earth is round, it rotates on its axis, orbits the sun and is suspended in space - 1000 years before Copernicus published his heliocentric theory.  He is also acknowledged for calculating p (Pi) to four decimal places: 3.1416 and the sine table in trigonometry. Centuries later, in 825 CE, the Arab mathematician, Mohammed Ibna Musa credited the value of Pi to the Indians, "This value has been given by the Hindus“. And above all, his most spectacular contribution was the concept of zero without which modern computer technology would have been non-existent.  Aryabhatta was a colossus in the field of mathematics.
