From the ancient times it has been found that Mathematics has always occupied the finest place in the scientific heritage of India. Its all due to the Indian mathematics that invented Zero and introduced decimal notation without which mathematics as a scientific discipline could not make much progress. Indian Mathematics is a living discipline with a huge potential for diversified modern world applications. Although it is uncertain about the origin of Vedic literature but according to the modern historians, the Vedas began to be developed in about 1600BC. In the 19th century many scholars again took interest in the vedas and vedic literature. Then another scholar Sri Bharti Krishna Tirathji after lengthy and careful investigations produced a reconstruction of ancient Indian Mathematics based on 16 sutras and subsutras, popularly known as vedic mathematics. Vedic Mathematics is an introduction to ancient civilization which takes us back to millennial of cultural and scientific heritage of India. Vedic Mathematics deals mainly with various mathematical formulae and their applications for carrying out tedious and cumbersome algebric equations. Vedic Maths is a unique system of calculations based on simple rules & principles, with which any mathematical problem in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry or calculus can be solved orally. Further it offers us the choices of doing the calculations with different methods and ways also. Calculation can be done both ways, from left to right and also from right to left and in the end same result can be obtained. In this way an overall development of the child easily and permanently takes place and their creativity levels are boosted above the roof. In this system multiplication and subtraction becomes a game of additions. Division can be a process of multiplication and addition. The simplicity of approach exposes the top-heavy processes of our logic-driven world.
