Evolution of Indian Mathematics

Excellent presentation. also inspiring and providing good perspective, emphasizing the importance of core ideas or results, that is originality and creativity, even when rigorous proof is not yet done.
such ideas and results by Indian mathematicians were in fact most important in the development of not only mathematics, but also of all fields of human knowledge.
Nobody is taking away the contributions of the westerners to fields like mathematics, science, technology etc, but at the same time, the Indian contributions to mathematics, science, technology etc need to be properly recognized and appreciated also. This has not happened as yet in the global mainstream. we all need to move in that direction.
Evolution of Indian Mathematics
Excellent lecture given by Prof Subramaniyam to Indian Mathematical congress. This is in particular for those who are mentally colonized about Indian achievements.
