A Legend: A Tribute

Posted by VASUDEVA REDDY on Friday, November 15, 2013 In : legends 

Like everybody else, he was introduced to me by my dad. I still remember the words he said, 'his name is sachin and he is the lifeline of Indian batting squad'. I remember the times when my dad walked out of room when he was out and I did the same thing for countless no of times. I started watching his play when I was 8 years old, ie, around 1996 world cup and it happened to be his year. It didn't take much time for me to get addicted to his batting. With out my knowledge, one of the reason b...

ABDUL HAMEED- a true legend

Posted by VASUDEVA REDDY on Friday, July 1, 2011 In : legends 

Havildar Abdul Hameed, a name which is unknown to the 119 crore 90 lakh citizens of India, made India proud and eventually awarded the most prestigious, Republic India’s highest military Decoration “Param Vir Chakra”,  by sacrificing his life in Indo-Pak war, 1965.

I was wondering, once, why many people are blaming Muslims in India, who are ready to sacrifice their life without any hesitation for their mother land.. Of course, there might be some bastards, sorry I should use this word...

Susruta

Posted by VASUDEVA REDDY on Wednesday, October 20, 2010 In : legends 

 

That ancient land, India, nurtured man to its breast early in the dawn of civilization. The dry sands of Sind, now in West Pakistan, have revealed to archeologist’s remains of civilizations going back 5000 to 6000 years, and perhaps further- peoples whose well-constructed cities included houses with adjoining bathrooms and wells, and elaborate public drainage systems. Some scholars believe that it was these early people, whose civilization dates from a period contemporary with the early Eg...

Bhaskaracharya

Posted by VASUDEVA REDDY on Wednesday, October 20, 2010 In : legends 

Born in 1114 AD (in Vijayapura, he belonged to Bijjada Bida) he became head of the Ujjain school of mathematical astronomy (Varahamihira and Brahmagupta had helped to found this school or at least 'build it up'). There is some confusion amongst the texts I have referred to as to the works that he wrote. C Srinivasiengar claims he wrote Siddhanta Siromani in 1150 AD, which contained four sections:

 

1) Lilavati (arithmetic)

2) Bijaganita (algebra)

3) Goladhyaya (sphere/celestial globe)

4)...

Aryabhatta (476-550 A.D.) was born in Patliputra in Magadha, modern Patna in Bihar. Many are of the view that he was born in the south of India especially Kerala and lived in Magadha at the time of the Gupta rulers; time which is known as the golden age of India. There is no evidence that he was born outside Patliputra and traveled to Magadha, the centre of education and learning for his studies where he even set up a coaching centre. His first name "Arya" is hardly a south Indian name while ...
