In light of recent evidence and more accurate dating it has been even 
more strongly claimed by A Seidenberg (in S Kak) that: 

...Indian geometry and mathematics pre-dates Babylonian and Greek 
mathematics. [SK1, P 338] 

This may be a somewhat extreme standpoint, and it seems likely that 
there was traffic of ideas in all directions of the Ancient world, 
but there is little doubt that the vast majority of Indian work is 
original to its writers. It may lack the cold logic and truly 
abstract character of modern mathematics but this observation further 
helps to identify it as uniquely Indian. Of all the mathematics 
contained in the Vedangas it is the definite appearance of decimal 
symbols for numerals and a place value system that should perhaps be 
considered the most phenomenal.
