Astronomy was then interwoven with astrology and since ancient times Indians have involved the planets (called Grahas) with the determination of human fortunes. Ancient Indian astronomers had recognized that stars are same as the sun, that the sun is center of the universe (solar system) and that the circumference of the earth is 5000 Yojanas. One Yojana being 7.2 kms., the ancient Indian estimates came close to the actual 11 figure.

The place value system, the decimal system was developed in India dating back to at least 100 BC. The solar year was calculated as 365.25875684 days by Bhaskaracharya in the 5th century, hundreds of years before the astronomer Smart.

He formulated the process of calculating the motion of planets and the time of eclipses. Aryabhatt 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.

  28. DANCING SHIVA Each period of science has led to some model of nature. For classical science it was the clock ; for nineteenth century science, the period of industrial revolution , it was an engine running down . What will be the symbol for us ? What we have In mind perhaps be expressed by a reference to sculpture , from Indian or pre-Columbian art to our time. In some of the most beautiful manifestations of sculpture, be it the dancing Shiva or in the miniature temples of Guerra, there appears very clearly the search for a junction between stillness and motion , time arrested and time passing . We believe that this confrontation will give our period its uniqueness. 28 “Order Out of Chaos” by Ilya Prigogine & Isabelle Stengers
