WHY 🇮🇳 HINDU MATHS DEVOLVED 😭
1. Western Churches got in the way of science & maths.
2. It was assumed Islamic translaters correctly conveyed Hindu math. Wrong!
3. Translations of Sanskrit texts of Āryabhaṭa, Bhāskara & Brahmagupta only emerged in the West in the 19th Century. https://t.co/tmBMizP2pV
