Measure of time

India has given the idea of the smallest and the largest measure of time.

Krati Krati = 34,000th of a second

1 Truti = 300th of a second

2 Truti = 1 Luv

2 Luv = 1 Kshana

30 Kshana = 1 Vipal

60 Vipal = 1 Pal

60 Pal = 1 Ghadi (24 minutes)

2.5 Gadhi = 1 Hora (1 hour)

24 Hora = 1 Divas (1 day)

7 Divas = 1 saptaah (1 week)

4 Saptaah = 1 Maas (1 month)

2 Maas = 1 Rutu (1 season)

6 Rutu = 1 Varsh (1 year)

100 Varsh = 1 Shataabda (1 century)

10 Shataabda = 1 sahasraabda

432 Sahasraabda = 1 Yug (Kaliyug) 2 Yug = 1 Dwaaparyug 3 Yug = 1 Tretaayug 4 Yug = 1 Krutayug

10 Yug = 1 Mahaayug (4,320,000 years) 1000 Mahaayug = 1 Kalpa 1 Kalpa = 4.32 billion years

Great. Bahut bahut Dhanyawad to the person Who put this information.

this is amazing - all this time the only thing I thought Indians invented was ZERO.

Thanks a lot to the person who posted this.

Our Ancestors mastered and described existence of single thing that make-up and running the current world in the ancient books.Its our bad luck that we are learning it from Western countries.

Based on the measure of time scale given I have put the values in an excel sheet as below. The value for 1 ghadi is not matching the value (24 minutes) given. Can you please help me in locating the mistake in my calculation?
