Dear GSC

Thank you for your reply.

Just as you wished you had learnt Sanskrit I wish I had learnt Latin.

Even though a lot of my time is invested with Greek mathematics, Latin and Sanskrit are perhaps the two greatest academic languages.

I am lucky to have found translations from Sanskrit to English online for the books written by:
- - Aryabhata (Aryabhatiya)
- - Brahmagupta (Brahmasphuta-siddhantas) and
- - Bhaskara II (Lilavati).

Best wishes,
Jonathan Crabtree
