Human Calculator

Published

on

The Indian’s achievement has always been a sense of wonder: a post-colonial nation that was able to sustain democracy bloomed with most amazing talents and imprinted its footprints in the world with its success in almost every field.

Today, aside from these sports crowds, a 20-year-old Hyderabadi is appreciated by every Indian who clinched the first-ever gold for India as the fastest human calculator in the world.
The Mental Calculation World Championship at the Mind Sports Olympiad in London was on Independence Day and Neelakantha Bhanu Prakash, a maths undergraduate student from Delhi’s St Stephen’s College brought glory to the nation winning the competition.

The title once grabbed by one of the most famous and beloved mathematical genius Shakuntala Devi, Bhanu’s victory bagged that place and became the fastest human calculator in the world.

The competition was a virtual event where 30 competitors were present, in between the age group of 10 to 57 years, from 13 different countries as reported by TOI.

Bhanu Prakash participated primarily in the first edition of the competition that was held in 1998, and because of the pandemic, the last event was accomplished on a digital platform. Also, the jury was so amazed by the record time answers of Bhanu that they asked to resolve a few more extra questions.

From clenching the cricket World Cup trophy to Kabaddi champions to Mary Kom’s amazing comeback, India is blessed with talents. And now from most addressed games India is making headway in some lesser-known sports as well, and gradually boosting medal tallies at international events, India has come a long way.

Bhanu’s record-breaking win is also a tail to mark in history as he bid his win with more than 65 points. A fellow participant from Lebanese trailed behind by 65 points to bag the second position whereas, UAE competitor came third.
It’s time to rejoice for India. Because a record set by great Shakuntala Devi in history with the title ‘Human Calculator’ is also broken by a boy of India. A magical minded boy whose brain calculates equations not only quicker than the speed of a calculator but Math maestros like Scott Flansburg and Shakuntala Devi.

Bhanu holds 50 national and 4 international records. In 2016, he imprinted his name in the world of maths, by defeating Scott Flansburg to win the title of the fastest human calculator in the world, according to The Hindu.

The MSO accounts for one of the most prestigious international tournaments for games related to mental skill and mind sports. This is identical to any different Olympic game in the world of physical sports.

Bhanu Prakash intends to create “VISION Math” labs and reach out to teenagers with the magic of math. It’s the sad end of our society that three out of every four students who study in the schools of India have trouble in learning basic Mathematics. The phobia has created havoc and also demotivated numbers of kids from understanding mathematics.

Bhanu is dedicated to expand and thrive the importance of numeracy as an important skill just like any other at the global level.

Let’s wish for the champion who wishes to instill a sense of enjoyment when children learn mathematics. The old Indian Math Glory is yet survived because of such aspirants who work hard to make this dream a reality.

The status of human values in India

Published

on

Since ancient times India possessed the wisdom of human values. Satya(truth), ahimsa(non-violence), dharma(right action), shanti(Peace) and prema(love) are the five human values in indian culture, if you follow these then it is believed that you will attain moksha(salvation). But in today’s era these human values are degrading at alarming rate due to rise in inhuman values within people. Every indian is being brought up with these five values but the problem is they dont follow them now. These inhuman deeds like lust, pride and others are making indians more vulnerable to give wisdom to the world. People unknowingly believe in maya(illusion) , unaware of the fact that it’s not the reality.

Technologies were developed to enhance human abilities not to disable them. Technology intead of enhancing human abilities is degrading those abilities. Let’s see how people are practicing inhuman deeds. We often watch these reels video wondering if we can do the same and when we do the samething we want more to do that and the cycle repeats, social media is becoming more powerful to enhance our inhuman value, these tricks of social media are binding us to do the right thing for us.

Ever wondered what is the source of the rapidly increasing inhuman values in india ? India was invaded and dominated by many nations across the world before independence we were betrayed by our own people either for “Power” or for “Money”. So the only reason for this rapidly increasing inhuman values is “Power”, we follow the people who are more powerful than us, in our case we started following western culture, whatever they do we tend to follow them. In india there are less people who know the value of yoga but there more people who know Coka Cola. And the second reason is money, we are so fallen deep into the well of maya that we dont even understand what true happiness is. We tend to find the happiness through material gratification but the happiness lies within ourselves.

India has lost its true wisdom, all because we tend to follow the most powerful. This is only resulting into increase in negativity. Lust, pride, loneliness, money have over powered our senses killing all the wisdom we have. We see majorly rapes cases and suicides most of in the news all these thing promotes more chaos. Lack of education also promotes these inhuman deeds. To give an example, crime in south indian states are far less than the crime in north indian, and the major factor that contribute is lack of Education. But its not late yet, many Indians have brought back our true wisdom as well. The value of meditation, forgiveness, and many more are being taught to the western world through Indians in order to change India. If we teach the powerful people true wisdom eventually our people will change.

This is true that the status of human values in India is diminishing due to our tendency to get happiness from the external world. Human values are only factors that redefined your character and make you wise. In the world of darkness don’t let the light of true wisdom of India get dim. If we don’t change for the sake of our people or world then no one would dare to change. Parent’s, friends and teachers everyone has a role to bring back our wisdom, the only thing is trust people to whom you want to show the wisdom of India.
