Aryabhata (आर्यभट्ट) is counted among the world’s greatest Astronomers.  Aryabhata (476-550 CE) was born in Kusumapura or Pataliputra (today’s Patna). At that time there were so many countries of the world who did not even know the true meaning of mathematics. At the same time, Aryabhata presented the mysteries of the universe in front of the world. The first person to tell about the relation of the earth and the sun was Aryabhata. However, Nicolaus Copernicus is credited with solving the mysteries of the Sun and Earth in science. But Aryabhata had solved this secret thousands of years ago. Even before Nicolaus Copernicus was born. Aryabhata first explained that the earth and the rest of the planet revolve around the sun roaming in their own axis. A philosopher of Greece, Aristotle believed that the center of the universe is earth; the Sun and the other planets revolve around it. The moon and other planets are shining because of the sun’s light, Aryabhata also said this. At that time, Aryabhata had approximated the perimeter of the Earth. On the basis of the way the earth keeps rotating, Aryabhata divided the time into four parts.
Aryabhata had said: –
1 Kalpa = 14 Manvantara.
1 Manvantara = 72 Mahayuga.
1 Mahayuga = 4 Yuga (Satya, Kali, Treta, Dwapara).
Earth revolves around 1,58,22,37,500 times in the Mahayuga.
All these things show how great was astronomer Aryabhata. But zero without which you cannot think of mathematics. The discovery of that zero immortalized the name of Aryabhata in history.

Baudhayana is counted among the great and ancient mathematicians of the world. Baudhayana had composed Shulba Sutras in ancient times. As we know, Euclidean geometry is taught throughout the world. But even before Euclidean geometry was discovered, mathematicians had discovered geometry in India. Baudhayana has been placed at the top of the list of those mathematicians. In ancient times in India, algebra and Geometry was known as Shulba Sutra. All the people of the world know about the Pythagoras theorem, but very few people know that it was discovered by the Baudhayana before Pythagoras. About two centuries before the discovery of Pythagoras theorem, Baudhayana already discovered it. According to the Baudhayana: – After adding the length and breadth of a rectangle separates, the area that it creates, the area collects its diagonal.

Maharishi Kanada played an important role in the history of nuclear science. In other words, he can also call the father of atomic science. His birth was around the 6th Century. Maharishi Kanada played an important role in the history of nuclear science.In other words, it would not be wrong to call him the father of a nuclear science. He was born around 6th century AD. Physicist John Dalton had proved that the substance has its atom. But Kanada had told about 9,000 years ago about the matter and atom. Kanada had written that any physical matter is born after meeting small atoms. Yet the discovery of the atom is credited to John Dalton. Kanada had discovered the atomic theory with the help of sources written in Vedas.There was a time when Indian scientists were far ahead of European scientists. Before discovering Newton’s 3 laws of motion, Kanada had already told about them. Kanada said when 5 types of matter work in an extraordinary way then the motion is created and destroyed due to proceed in the same direction.
