Though the terms ‘computing’ and ‘computer science’ are new, yet their idea and practice have long history in India, China, Egypt, Mesopotamia and Greece, extending to at least 2500 years. Greek Logic and formalisation tradition and Indian tradition of algorithmic problem-solving form two of the four pillars of the current computer and information (ICT) revolution. Algorithmic problem-solving has been one of the foundations of Mathematics; and Logic, a part of philosophy, forms the basis of Euclidean Geometry.
