The number “0” Zero was their in the number system but it was only used has a placeholder, it was only when Aryabhata a brillant mathematician in 458 AD introduced the number zero, and Brahmagupta wrote governance (rules) for number zero. Only after this the mathematical operations like addition and subtraction started using zero.
The formula of Quadratic equations; ax^2 + bx + c =0, was first given by Sridharacharya in the 10 century.
Decimal points were developed in India way back in 100 B.C by indian scholars.
Cataract surgery was done by an Indian Physician Sushruta in 3rd century CE. In India, cataract surgery was performed with a special tool called the Jabamukhi Salaka, a curved needle used to loosen the lens and push the cataract out of the field of vision.The eye would later be soaked with warm butter and then bandaged.

Ancient India were pioneer in metallurgy. Perhaps as early as 300 BC—although certainly by 200 BC—high quality steel was being produced in southern India. A seamless celestial globe was also invented for the first time in Kashmir, which is till today considered as one of the most remarkable achievements in metallurgy

The World’s first university was established in Takshashila in 700BC. More than 10,500 students from all over the world studied more than 60 subjects. The University of Nalanda built in the 4th century BC was one of the greatest achievements of ancient India in the field of education.
This is one of the recent invention by Dr R. Vasudevan, a chemistry professor. In 2006 Dr Vasudevan patented a road-laying process that involves sprinkling of shredded plastic waste over hot gravel, which will coat a thin-film of plastic over the stones, and then adding the plastic coated stones to regular molten tar and laying the road.
This helps in low maintenance cost about 50% and life of the road improves.
Paper microscope (Foldscope)
It is cheap, portable and can be used in science education as well as medical diagnosis in rural areas.
Narayana Peesapati introduced edible cutlery in 2010. It is sold as the brand name Bakeys across the world. They’re a blend of millets, rice and wheat, so they’re not just edible, they’re probably more nutritious than the pasta that you scooped up with it.
