Indian Maths or Ganita emerged first via Āryabhaṭa, then Brahmagupta with his Sūtras for Negatives, Zero and Positives.

Yet western arithmetic came via Ancient Greek maths missing ZERO.

Too many people FEAR and FAIL mathematics. Why?

  1. British Maths was built for 1, 2, 3... based on Ancient Greek philosophy of earth measurement (geo-metry). It did not have either zero or symmetry at its core.
  2. India's superior symmetric maths was built for ... ⁻3 ⁻2 ⁻1 0 ⁺1 ⁺2 ⁺3, science and looking to the stars!

Brahmagupta defined zero as a number and wrote his simple laws of maths in the 7th century. Yet new research* reveals the definition of zero and laws of (+ – × ÷) on positive and negative numbers were not understood in the Arabic world!
