A civilization is known by contributions of learned persons, who contributed to its sustenance, development and progress.

Learnedness has been spoken of as alacrity at 3 R’s – **R**eading w**R**iting a**R**ithmetic.

The third R really encompasses a vast field of mathematical knowledge. Indian civilization is very rich in respect of all 3 R’s, certainly the third R – mathematics.

In this blog I would like to compile thoughts on mathematics, especially from Sanskrit texts, but not restricted only to Sanskrit texts.

शुभमस्तु !!!
