untitled[edit]

ÐHistory Mahakavi Kalidasa is known to be the greatest repository of our national heritage. The serenity of his artistic accomplishment has earned for him a high place in the galaxy of world poets. Kalidasa's imagination holds in perfect fusion the two elements of natural beauty and human feelings. He has continued to display his relevance through the centuries. Surcharges with wider human sympathy and universal appeal his character has remained truly Indian. Thus, Kalidasa continues to shine throughout the world as one of the greatest exponent of Indian culture.

      In keeping view of his memory at Ujjain, the department of culture of the government of Madhya Pradesh established the ‘Kalidasa Academy’

In the year 1978. The basic idea of establishing Kalidasa Akademi in Ujjain is in twofold. One is to keep the memory of the great poet-dramatist Kalidasa constantly refreshed. The other is to establish a multi-disciplinary institution which would project the totality of classical tradition with Kalidasa as its center; provide facilities for research and study in Sanskrit classical and traditional performing arts and their adaptation for contemporary stage in different cultural and linguistic millions. The Kalidasa Akademi is designed to recapture the contribution of entire sanskrit classical tradition, theatre and fine arts and to represent its unique aesthetic vision to the international community.

Indian Kingdoms and Borders, 600 AD[edit]

Unknown map source, India in 600 AD

I have 2 different source maps for the borders of India, circa 600 AD, and they both show major differences. The first map's source is listed, I don't remember my source for the 2nd map. Also, looking at the www.WorldHistory.com map of India in 586 AD, it is also different from these 2 maps. Which of these maps shows the correct borders for India in 600 AD?

Mathematics[edit]

Regarding the paragraph, In the 6th and 7th centuries, Ujjain was a major centre of mathematical and astronomical research. The famous mathematicians who worked there included: Brahmagupta, whose book Brahmasphutasiddhanta was responsible for spreading the use of zero, negative numbers and the positional number system to Arabia and Cambodia; Varahamihira, who was the first to discover many trigonometric identities; and Bhaskaracharya, or Bhaskara II, whose book Lilavati broke new ground in many areas of mathematics."

This paragraph is very poorly researched. For instance, it conveys the false impression that the three mathematicians who are named here were all from the 6th and 7th centuries; in fact, however, Bhaskaracharya, or Bhaskara II (not to be confused with Bhaskara I) lived many centuries later. In addition, Lilavati, a primer in arithmetic and geometry, was the most elementary of his several works; it should probably not be cited as part of documenting the correct statement that "Ujjain was a major centre of mathematical and astronomical research."
