Why in Mathematics and physics every object is taken in anticlockwise sense called as positive sense? Generally in our day to day life we use clockwise direction to go round a temple or something like that. Also our wall clock will go round from left to right.?

Normally we take the positive X axis as reference. When moving UP (positive) the movement is in the anticlockwise direction. This is the logic behind taking anticlockwise as positive and clockwise as negative.
