The mathematical formulas which calculate these kinds of parameters accurately are grouped under KhagOLa-Ganita. So the query is as follows: There was a pond, it had blossomed a Lotus which stood by its stalk, bit high on top of water. This was the picture got when a person stands in the banks of pond. A mathematician if wishes can calculate the total length of Lotus-Stalk, depth of water from tip of stalk floating up, and other detail can be calculated as he wishes. It is the power of Beejaganita & Rekhaganita.
