Aryabhata’s work was later used as reference by many Greek and Arab mathematicians and astronomers.
It is widely believed that Aryabhata's concepts of Astronomy formed the basis of the Jalali calendar. The Jalali calendar was used in Persia(modern day Iran) and the modern adaptations of this solar calendar are still used in Iran and Afghanistan
His last treatise known as Aryabhatta Siddhanta contains astronomical calculations done by him and believe it or not, but those are still used by the modern day priests to prepare the astrological charts, to find auspicious moments for ceremonies.
You must have heard people discussing in the later half of the year 'When is Diwali this year?'. You must have noticed, it doesn't fall on the same day every year, it's a new date year.
Why? Because it is calculated by a holy Hindu calendar known as 'Panchang'.
This holy calendar would not have been there had there been no Aryabhatta Siddhanta.
The astronomical calculations by Aryabhata gave birth to 'Panchang' which is still used by the Hindu Priests.
Bask in the intellect of the Genius
We all must have heard about Aryabhata some or the other time, but I bet that not many of us have tried to know more about his life’s works.
There is a dearth of good material on the lives of legends like Aryabhata. When I studied in school, I firmly remember that there was no chapter in our history books as well as science books on the works of Aryabhata.
The only thing which prevails is a comment “he was a great mathematician”, but if we go dive deep into his achievements and the concepts he left for the world, then we will surely encounter his real value.
To us he will always be the father of mathematics in India as well as the father of mathematics in world.
I hope that this articles has done its job of arousing a little curiosity in your mind to know more about Aryabhata. I hope that after reading this you will surely google Aryabhata, or will search for a video about him on the Youtube.
But before doing that do let me know how this article was?
