The Illustrated Lilavati

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In 1150 AD Bhaskaracharya wrote Lilavati - the book that served as the primer for arithmetic and geometry in India for many centuries. The word problems in Lilavati invoke bees and flowers, kings and gods to describe exercises in linear and quadratic equations, progressions, combinations and geometry. This ancient sanskrit manuscript is now presented in a graphic novel format with 106 illustrated panels.

Brings out fun in math

The book brings the joy of math and puzzles in a playful manner. Stories interwoven with basic math is what got me interested in this subject as a kid, and Lilavati brought me back those memories once again. anyone who thinks math is boring should read this book.

Somdip's illusatrations are great, and book is easy to follow. I'll highly recommend this book!

Nice mix of Math and History

The intertwining of Maths and history is really awesome! That makes the presentation really interesting. Add to that the amazing illustrations. This makes learning really fun. Looking forward to more works for the author!

Colorful and informative

This is a fun book. Some of the material could use more explanation, but on the whole it delivers a lot of information in a colorful way.
