It is said that for Greeks & Romans largest numbers used were 106, where as people of Vedic times used numbers as big as 10 to the power of 53. Not just algebra but trigonometry and calculus has originated in India. Sadly our teaching & research is western specific, we don't want to know what Sridhara Charya did with the quadratic equations in 11th century.
