Shakuntala Devi

10 Dec

Few days back, I watched an interview of Shakuntala Devi, the modern human computer, at News Live channel. From the very beginning of her interview, she was repeatedly mentioning about a Mantra, which she has been following for years to get the success and she promised to tell that Mantra to the students presented out there at the end of the interview. I was also waiting for that Mantra till the end of the show. Though my subject is same with Shakuntala Devi, still I got surprised to listen her life story and various experiences she faced at different phases of her life.

First she was under matriculate….without the formal education, her name is recorded in the Guinness Book of world record as the fastest brain in calculations. She can do the major calculations in seconds and for her mathematics is not a tough subject. She deals everything with numbers, she imagines every time numbers, she eats numbers, she sleeps with numbers…how??? According to her, everything around her, she considers to be a number and tries to find the properties of that item and then compares it with numbers…even,odd,prime etc.

At the interview she was asked that is it possible to be good in mathematics without the in born talent or the genius brain. She simply replied that mathematics subject is based on interest. If you have sufficient interest in this subject, then it is not necessary to have a very brilliant brain…only thing is that you have to cultivate the brain with practice. If you can set up your brain mathematically, then any subject in this world become easier to you.

You don’t believe that my guide always scolded me mentioning the same thing which Shakuntala Devi mentioned in that interview. Interestingly my guide used to scold me writing on my copy mentioning every thing point wise. For him, until and unless mathematics will not enter into my blood and soul, I will not get success any more. The same thing was suggested by Shakuntala Devi also.

At the end of the interview, she asked every one to stand up and to place their hands on the chest and then to say these words…..Believe in Yourself.

    Shakuntala Devi is a fraud. Many people or too emabarrased to come out with it by they will talk about it to those who are very close. She charges anything from £500 then expects you to pay the receptionist another £10. She tell you that you can ask her 3 questions and she will give you a matra. I cannot believe how many people she has conned, when you go to speak her again she will charge you again for the same issues.
    Please do not be shy to speak to others about how she has failed you, that is the only way you will save others from the same experice.

    Agree with Nasir, had the same experience and when the penny dropped, I demanded my money back. She is a disgrace of a women running a business with unethical and immoral values. She is indeed a gifted ‘human computer’ but a heartless one at that.

    she is misusing her fame for astrology business.
    she tells everything flse…nothing in my past and present matches to what she predicted…. she said you will not have any health problems at all in your life… i said i am already having a few …then she said i mean you wont have anything major like cancer etc…. she said tell me your wife’s name …i said i am not married..
    this was just an example but that lady does not astrology at all … she has opened this business for looting and cheating ppl.
    plese stay away from her… she charges 2000 rs for astrology.
