Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
Jyotisha (astronomy and astrology)Source: academia.edu: Vatesvara
Vaṭeśvara (वटेश्वर), son of Mahādatta Bhaṭṭa, was a tenth-century Indian astronomer from a town in the Kashmir valley. Some accounts name Ānandapura as the place of his birth. He is the author of the Vaṭeśvara Siddhānta, which he completed at the age of twenty-four, in 904 CE (Śaka 826).
Vaṭeśvara was an Āryabhaṭan by persuasion, and adopted several stances taken by the great pioneer. For instance, most astronomers divide the Mahāyuga of 43,20,000 years into the four yugas, the Kṛta, Tretā, Dvāpara and Kali in a 4:3:2:1 ratio. But Vaṭeśvara followed Āryabhaṭa and assigned a period of 10,80,000 each for the four yugas. In doing so, he made a strong attempt to refute Brahmagupta’s criticism of Āryabhaṭa.
Jyotisha (ज्योतिष, jyotiṣa or jyotish) refers to ‘astronomy’ or “Vedic astrology” and represents the fifth of the six Vedangas (additional sciences to be studied along with the Vedas). Jyotisha concerns itself with the study and prediction of the movements of celestial bodies, in order to calculate the auspicious time for rituals and ceremonies.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
