Shakuntala Devi: Another feather in Vidya Balan's Cap
|by G Swaminathan|
Honestly, I was very skeptical about watching the biopic of Shakuntala Devi, the world renowned mathematical genius with numbers. I remember even now the visit she made to my college (AM Jain College) during 1965-66 and everyone was spell bound by her magical relationship with the numbers. Within seconds she could reel out the endless integers of a multiplication, cube root of a number or whatnot.
Later, I didn’t hear much about her but I know that she had defeated the computer in a show in London and also later entered into the Guinness Book of World Record for her amazing rapport with the numbers. I also know that she not only published books on the magical aspects of numbers but also on the controversial topic on the life of Homosexuals.
