Story of Katyayana and his major works

Katyayana was a Sanskrit grammarian, mathematician and Vedic priest who lived in ancient India. He is known for “The Varttikakara, an elaboration on Paṇini grammar. Along with the Mahabhaṣya of Patanjali, this text became a core part of the Vyakaraṇa (grammar) canon. This was one of the six Vedangas, and constituted compulsory education for students in the following twelve centuries” and “also composed one of the later Sulbasutras, a series of nine texts on the geometry of altar constructions, dealing with rectangles, right-sided triangles, rhombuses, etc.”
