On 23 July 2018 The Better India reported: Aryabhatta, also called Aryabhatta I, was born possibly around 476 C.E. around the regions of the Godavari river. Aryabhatta was one of the earliest Indian mathematicians and astronomers whose pioneering work in these fields is still referenced by many modern scholars. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

Aryabhatta was only 23 when he composed the Aryabhatiya. Before the book, there were Vedic scriptures which detailed mathematical relationships in geometrical shapes for the construction of altars and temples.

.... The entire script was written in Sanskrit and hence reads like a poetic verse rather than a practical manual.

The book is divided into four sections -- Gitikapada, Ganitapada, Kalakriyapada, and the Golapada, each covering various fields.

Gitikapada dealt with time, especially large units of time. Ganitapada covered mathematics of measurement, arithmetic, and geometric progressions. Kalakriyapada told how one could determine the positions of the planet for any given day and finally, Golapada dealt with the earth's shape and its celestial presence.
