This article highlights the contributions of some Indian Mathematicians who lived earlier than Ramanujan. For instance, we discuss the work of Radhanath Sikdar, who used sophisticated mathematics to identify for the first time the highest peak of Himalayas, of Ramachandra Lal, who solved problems of maxima and minima without the use of calculus, the work of the remarkable astronomer Samanta Chandra Sekhar, and the work of Ganesh Prasad, who apart from his work on potentials and theory of functions encouraged his junior colleague Bibhuti Bhushan Datta to write the monumental work `History of Hindu Mathematics' along with A.N. Singh.
