Baudhayana: The Original Mathematician Behind Pythagoras Theorem
Exploring Indian history takes you to many confusions and controversies. Many of our age-old ancient knowledge has been burned down to ashes and completely destroyed by these idiots. Baudhayana also provides a non-axiomatic demonstration using a rope measure of the reduced form of the Pythagorean theorem for an isosceles right triangle: Tuesday, January 1, It is high time that we start recognizing and respecting our own culture and it is high time that west starts giving credit for things that rightfully belongs to us.

Is Indian Constitution Secular to Hindus? Whilst I agree that is important to acknowledge bauhayana very important part Indian mathematicians and philosophers have played in the history of the world and today, many, many people from all different cultures learnt at Babylon and baudhayan, at Egypt.
Dear DMT, I dont know whether you have heard of this news or not,but under water city of dwarka has been found recently,it is atleast 10, years old, some say atleast 32, years old,though this fact is not known much in the west as they wd like to keep it a secret as it demolishes claims made by it about indias history,this knowledge compltely discredits the view you have put,also One prominent scholar, Samuel Noah Kramer, believes that the term Dilmun in Sumerian literature refers not to the Sumerian homeland but to the Indus civilization as the land of opportunity.
We Indians do have a tendancy to try to associate everything with Vedas or try to show as if everything has happened initially only in India and the people of other civilization were fools! Email required Address never made public.

Baudhayana essentially belonged to Yajurveda school and hence, most of his work on mathematics was primarily for ensuring that all sacrificial rituals were performed accurately. It also refers to social classes, the role of the king, marriage, and suspension of Vedic recitation. Kindly go through the other posts! In either case, it states that the square of the hypotenuse equals the sum of the squares of the sides. To elaborate, the shloka is to be mathemqtician as —. Click here to post a comment.
