At many places our ancient books exhibit deep knowledge of various branches of maths, and that is discussed a lot. For instance, Yuktibhasha, a 15th century Malyalam textbook of maths teaches differential calculus - this is about a hundred years before Newton or Liebniz.

As an electrical engineer, I am curious if our ancient texts contain any knowledge specific to electricity that is still accessible to us? Any veda, purana, upanishad, dharmashastra, any bhashya or otherwise a well regarded book would be pertinent for this question - not necessarily just Sanskrit texts.
