Know The Seeds of Pumpkin without Breaking, Tamil
I had blogged on the antiquity of the Tamil Language , its rich culture and its scientific approach every thing.
Tamil Land was demarcated into six zones and relevant details were assigned to each of them, which is not found in any other Literature.
Also the Tamil Land was the one that contained all the six divisions of Land.
Tamil’s ancient and authoritative Grammatical Works, Agathiyam, Tolkappiyam mention advanced mathematics formulae.
One other Sangam period work’ கணக்கதிகாரம்” by Kari Nayanar of Korkkiyaar abounds in Mathematical Formulae.
One such is the Calculation for finding the number of seeds in a Pumpkin.
“கீற்றெண்ணி முத்தித்துத் கீழாறினால் மாறி
வேற்றையஞ்சு தன்னில் மிகப்பெருக்கிப் பார்த்ததிலே
பூசணிக்காய் தோறும் புகல்”
