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...
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

mother land.. Of course, there might be some bastards, sorry I should use this

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...
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

2) Bijaganita (algebra)
3) Goladhyaya (sphere/celestial globe)
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;
