Welcome to the School of Mathematics

यथा शिखा मयूराणां , नागानां मणयो यथा । तद् वेदांग शास्त्राणां , गणितं मूर्धनि स्थितम् ॥

- श्लोक

Yatha shikha mayuranam, Naganam manayo yatha |
Tad vedangashaastranaam, Ganitam moordhani sthitham ||

Like the crowning crest of a peacock, shining gem in the cobra’s hood,
Mathematics is permanently positioned at the helm of all sciences.
