Vimana- Indian Aeronautics

Vimana is the sanskrit word for an aeroplane.India had its own flying technology (aeronautical science ) called vymanika shastra which founds its citations in shlokas from rig veda, ramayana and mahabharata.

Four variants with different titles are as follows:

A] Vymanika prakaranam
B] Vymanika shastra
C] Vimana shastra
D] Bruhad Vimana Shastra

The word vimana is purportedly derived from vamana: “he who is able at three strides to take measure of the entire earth and heavens.”

“In the Vedic literature of India, there are many descriptions of flying machines that are generally called vimanas. These fall into two categories:

(1) manmade craft that resemble airplanes and fly with the aid of birdlike wings, and

(2) unstreamlined structures that fly in a mysterious manner and are generally not made by human beings.

The machines in category (1) are described mainly in medieval, secular Sanskrit works dealing with architecture, automata, military siege engines, and other mechanical contrivances. Those in category (2) are described in ancient works such as the Rg Veda, the Mahabharata, the Ramayana, and the Puranas, and they have many features reminiscent of UFOs.”

Number 9

9 x 1 = 9

9 x 2 =18 =>1+8=9

9 x 3 =27=>2+7=9

9 x 4 =36=>3+6=9

9 x 5 =45=>4+5=9

9 x 6 =54=>5+4=9

9 x 7 =63=>6+3=9

9 x 8 =72=>7+2=9

9 x 9 =81=>8+1=9

9 x 10 = 90=>9+0=9

Why Indian adopted decimal system(there can be many systems like hexadecimal octal etc) but it was india which adopted the decimal system and gave zero to whole world.

0-9 the system was adopted by india.

value of pi…

here is the shloka..

we all know the devnagri script.Decoding it by denoting numbers to each digit we will have.

The SlOka in rOman-nAgarE:
gOpE BAgya maDhu vratha SRnggESO dhaDhesanDhega KalajEvetha Katava galahata rasanDhara.
The rOman-nAgarE string with only the syllabic consonants:
g p B y m Dh r th S g S dh Dh s Dh g K l j v th K t v g l h t r s Dh r.
The katapayAdhe mapping of the consonants:
3 1 4 1 5 9 2 6 5 3 5 8 9 7 9 3 2 3 8 4 6 2 1 4 3 3 8 1 2 7 9 2.
The mapped decimal string is:
3.14159 26535 89793 23846 21433 81279 2.
The decimal expansion of pi given by the GNU calculator bc:
3.14159 26535 89793 23846 26433 83279 5.

This gives us the value of pi upto 21 digits.
