BHARATA THE CRADLE OF ASTRONOMY AND ALMOST ALL OTHER SCIENCES !!! PROVED!

Indian contribution to the world of astronomy has been remarkable since the very beginning. Their immense passion to solve astronomical problems led to numerous discoveries in Mathematics and Astronomy.

Ancient Indians developed mathematical astronomy by meticulous and painstaking multi-generational record-keeping of astronomical observations and finding solutions for astronomical problems through mathematical manipulations. Truly speaking, India was the birth place of astronomy and mathematics and taught the basics of these sciences to the rest of the world. Indian astronomy is much older than Babylonian, Egyptian and Hellenistic astronomy.

John Playfair (1748-1819 CE), a Scottish mathematician, demonstrated that the epoch of the astronomical observations recorded in the tables by Hindu astrologers had to be 4300 BCE.

Evidently, ancient Indians knew the importance of using the epoch for astronomical calculations which evolved the concept of eras. Some intellectually challenged historians claimed that ancient Indians were not accustomed to the use of eras and only foreigners introduced eras in India. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
