Happy birthday, Republic of India!

🇮🇳 January 26 – Republic Day of India
The motherland of chess, algebra and geometry has been celebrating its National Holiday since 1950, the day the current Constitution of India came into force. The Preamble of the Constitution defines India as a sovereign, socialist, secular and democratic state. It is noteworthy that India is very peaceful and has not invaded the territory of any other country in its centuries-long history.

Indians have long been attracted to mathematical science. Ancient Indian mathematicians loved majestic numbers, approximately up to trillions, while the ancient Greeks stopped at about 10,000. The Indians even distinguished different types of infinity.

Mathematical zero (“shunya” in Sanskrit) is derived from the contemporary Indian philosophy of emptiness, or “shunyata” – the Buddhist teaching about emptying the mind of images and thoughts.

Although the Maya, like some other civilizations, probably had evidence of zero as a sign, nowhere but India is it considered an independent company. In most cultures, “nothing” was considered to be, since God is present in everything, the symbol for nothing must be satanic. There is probably something in this relationship – the spiritual wisdom of India became the origin of both meditation and zero.

Many things in the world started in India – nothing came of it.
🇮🇳 So today we congratulate one of our most beloved countries, and wish it all the best!
