Shiva, Shivratri and origins of Grammar and Computer code!!
Shiva stotra is the root formation of the Sanskrit language and ultimately English. Ask a English scholar the logical reasons for the foundations of the alphabet I am sure you will get a blank, or else help me with this problem. No such problem with the foundations of Sanskrit and its grammar. The famous Hindu ancient grammarian PANNI (4th century BCE)codified it as follows.
I have just expanded shiva but all four parts are as amazing an exposition of the mathematical foundations of Sanskrit.
Pāṇini's grammar consists of four parts:
Shiv is the Hindu god of Grammar as studied by Panini his work has been used in computer code and this is no wonder because sanskrit and math were studied as one and the same, by Hindus. But Christian monks who translated Islamic texts removed their Hindu/Pangan sources for fear persecution by the church. The strangle hold of the Church in education was partly relinquished in 1866 when in order to be awarded an Oxford degree you no longer were required to be a member of the church of England. I digress.
Being a Hindu his work is defined as rediscovered!!!
Comparison with modern formal systems (source wiki)
Pāṇini's grammar is the world's first formal system, developed well before the 19th century innovations of Gottlob Frege and the subsequent development of mathematical logic. In designing his grammar, Pāṇini used the method of "auxiliary symbols", in which new affixes are designated to mark syntactic categories and the control of grammatical derivations. This technique, rediscovered by the logician Emil Post, became a standard method in the design of computer programming languages. Sanskritists now accept that Pāṇini's linguistic apparatus is well-described as an "applied" Post system. Considerable evidence shows ancient mastery of context-sensitive grammars, and a general ability to solve many complex problems. Frits Staal has written that "Panini is the Indian Euclid.".
Even today much of so called science is in denial of its Pagan Hindu roots, a hangover from the Christian scholars need to develop "Science" when they found their Bible wanting.
