So what's the difference between 'aatha', 'jaatha' and 'patha'?... do all of these mean as 'know'?

Sort of. I'm not mother tongue but I'm curious to check my own understanding, so hopefully a Hindi speaker will double check this.

आना = to come, but a quirk of Hindi is that languages 'come to you' (मुझे हिंदी आती है). In general it doesn't mean 'to know'.

पता = To know (मुझे पता है, or 'to me knowing is'), used for things you know about (हाँ, मुझे भारत पता है: yes, I know (of) India).

जानना = To know. Generally interchangeable with पता, but not always. जानना is more used for concepts and people (मैं उसको जानता हूँ: I know him).

Let's see how close I was :)
