Writing a book in mathematics needs the subject knowledge and considerable prowess in writing. And writing a book on mathematics in poetic form is even difficult. And writing the book of Mathematical poetry in Sanskrit, sticking to the stringent grammatical rules, chandas (meter), terse two line verses, prosody without compromising the value that needs to be stated or the facts that need to be explicitly laid out to the reader is even a mightier and challenging task.
Bhaskarcharya accomplished such a superlative effort. A great scholar in mathematics, astronomy, Sanskrit language, Vyakarana (grammar) he wrote the magnum opus work “Siddhanta Siromani” (Crown Jewel of Treatises in Mathematics and Astronomy) and “Lilavati“.
Nearly thousand years later they still continue to be some of the most popular works.
