India's contribution to mathematics and more

The earliest traces of mathematical knowledge in the Indian subcontinent appear with the Indus Valley Civilization (c. 4th millennium BC ~ c. 3rd millennium BC). They designed a ruler—the Mohenjo-daro ruler—whose unit of length (approximately 1.32 inches or 3.4 centimetres) was divided into ten equal parts.This shows that the maths was quite advanced even at that time but later on the inventions of some mathe-maticians revolutionized the world.

There will be a special exhibit in AnandaMela 2015. Please visit the exhibit.

Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose is first scientist who proved by experimentation that both animals and plants share much in common as early as 1895. He demonstrated that plants are also sensitive to heat, cold, light, noise and various other external stimuli. Bose developed a very sophisticated instrument called Crescograph which could record and observe the minute responses because of external stimulants.
