Varahamihir-The Sage Ahead of his Time

Some called him a saint, and some, an astrologer. But Varahmihir was actually a genius mathematician whose discoveries ho ld significance even after thousands of years. From calculating the diameters of several planets like Mercury and Saturn, to saying that water was present on Mars, Varahmihir's predictions were based on detailed mathematical calculations. Though, today we have been able to preserve only a fragment of his vast research. How did ancient Indians make such scientific advancements? What really was the extent of their knowledge?
