Indian student Rishi Rajpupat solved a 2,500-year-old problem.

A PhD student at the University of Cambridge has solved a Sanskrit grammatical problem that has challenged scholars since the fifth century BC. c.

Rishi Rajpuppat, 27, has deciphered a rule taught by Panini, a professor of ancient Sanskrit who lived about 2,500 years ago.

The university indicated that the Sanskrit language is spoken only in India by about 25,000 people out of more than a billion people.

Rajpupat said he had a “eureka moment at Cambridge” after spending nine months “getting nowhere”.
