Mathematics referred to as the queen of sciences reflects the “the active will and the reason for aesthetic perfection”. Logic and mathematics are commutual. As per the reports, India is facing a huge Maths Crisis in which 26.1 per cent of children in Class V know division and only 44.1 per cent in Class VIII could solve a three digit by one digit division problem. In other words, abstract and logical reasoning is their hurdle. To overcome this, scholars have revived interest in Vedic Mathematics which was born in the Vedic Age, deciphered towards the beginning of the 20th century, by Swami Bharati Krishna Tirthaji. The Sanskrit word Veda is derived from the root Vid indicating deep acquaintance. The Sutras apply to almost every branch of Mathematics making calculations of large numbers easier that was nearly impossible in systems like those of the Greeks, Romans etc. In the vedic system complex problem or difficult sum or lengthy equations can often be solved immediately. It has striking and beautiful methods which beautifies and systematise mathematics. The Vedic system invented the zero, Aryabhata was followed by Brahmagupta who developed the use of zero, followed by Pythagoras’ theorem which was discovered in India and gravity was explained in the Rig Veda, 2,400 years before Newton’s apple injury. The debate has raised an uncomfortable question for Hindu nationalists on how India lost its mathematical advantages over the millennia. Thus, our desideratum lies in highlighting the significance and the vast usage of this branch of mathematics.
