Of all those young women Not one has enquired the cause of the world Nor the modus of lunar eclipses Nor whether there be any patch left of us After we cross the infernal ripples.
To Sherlock Holmes she is always the woman. I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name.In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
He was the father of the Indian cyclic astronomy which resulted in the planetary theory that determines more accurately the true positions and distances of the planets (including the Sun and the Moon )...was also the first to produce celestial latitudes...proposed the scientific cause of eclipses as against the mythological demon Rahu [Moon's node]. His ideas resulted in the new school of Indian Astronomy – the Aryapasha ((Aryabhata School) based on the text of Aryabhatiya.
