Do you know Shakuntala Devi?

Shakuntala Devi, the prodigal mathematician is believed to be a reincarnation of Ramanujam though both had different skills in mathematics.

While Ramanujam
saw mathematical relationships as expressed in equations and identities; Shakuntala Devi iss a genius in mental mathematics.

S. Devi is also a calendar calculator. If you give her a date in the past, she will tell you the day of that date in a few seconds. Remarkable!.

Do you know that Shakuntala Devi never attended school? In fact she never got training formally in math.

Do you know that her father was a lion tamer in a circus?
