She also made the 1st ever bollywood movie "Raja Harishchandra" in 1913. She is the 1st person to land on moon. She discovered the number system and was the pioneer in the field of medical science. Vasco da Gama was actually Vasco Da Kangana, she discovered India. https://t.co/wqdWJfhhJS— pratap dutta (@pratapim) October 16, 2020
