is a national sport in India. Little desi enthu cutlet
s practice this sport from a very early age. Initially we are awkward at it and might get stuck at two ones za
two. But we quickly master our sums
through joint study
pencils and devote ourselves to a degree in PCMB
, a precursor to IIT
Then there is Shakuntala Devi. Mother of Indian Mathematics. Known as the 'Human Computer' she could tell you the 23rd root of a 201-digit number or correctly multiply two 13-digit numbers in the time it takes your average desi to say Eksath Basath!
She expired last week. RIP Shakuntala Devi.
Arjun: Shaq is to basketball as Shak(untala) is to Indian mathematics
Prabhu: Good one I say!
