India’s Mathemagician multiplies numbers at lightning speed

Sagaya Fernando Mumbai: 2 December 2020 Born into an average Indian family in the state of Kerala 30 years ago, Vivek Raj never thought that he would become a Math’s wizard one day, and bag awards for doing the fastest mental calculations with ease. Vivek, a resident of Arattuvazhy village in Alappuzha district of Kerala, who now conducts shows titled ‘Mathemagics’ for young students, got hooked to calculations when his father Raphael P C (a school teacher then) gifted him a simple calculator when he turned 13 years of age and was in Class VII. The turning point in his life came when his Class XII English teacher Fr. Titus Chullickal asked his students what came into their mind thinking of number 7. While some of the students replied about the seven wonders of the world, the seven colours of the rainbow and the seven continents, Vivek multiplied the number seven by itself several times and reached a 11-digit number in a matter of seconds.   (7x7=49x7=343x7=2,401x7=16,807x7=1,17

Story by Sumesh RajanMumbai: March 6, 2018



In a tragic accident, 26 members of a marriage party were killed while more than 55 others were injured when the truck they were travelling in fell off a bridge into a 25 feet deep dry river bed in the Indian state of Gujarat in the early hours of March 6.

The incident took place at around 7.30 am (Indian Standard Time) when the group of more than 80 were travelling from Anida village in Palitana taluka of Bhavnagar district to Tatam village in Gadhda taluka of neighbouring Botad district, to solemnise the wedding.

“The truck driver tried to overtake a pick-up van on the bridge over Randholi River on the Rajkot-Bhavnagar Highway near Ranghola village, and lost control of the vehicle which swerved and fell into the dry river bed 25 feet below,” said Bhavnagar District Deputy Superintendent of Police A M Sayyad.

He added, “In this accident 10 women and children and 16 men were killed. The injured have been taken to hospitals in nearby Botad and Bhavnagar city for treatment.”

“Further investigations are on. Nevertheless, prima facie, it is the negligence of the truck driver that led to the tragic incident,” claimed Dy. SP Sayyad.

  2. This was dinner tonight at our house... I am too tired some days to come up with fantastic or extravagant meal ideas, plus the kids don't eat my best meals anyways. Tonight I wanted them to get some good calories so I added sausage to the recipe. It's delicious and hearty and best of all, it's super easy.
    Geesh, what an ego on this one. Sure hope he and those other Founding Fathers can put in a few clauses about women’s independence in all those documents they’re fighting about because being unable to own property or vote, and precluded by sex from 98 percent of jobs in the Colonies is really slowing down my game. I’d dump this jerk in a heartbeat if I had more options.

  3. The third dog in this post, Buddy, makes me feel nostalgic. You may or may not know this, but I used to have a dog named Buddy as well. I grew up with Buddy, my family's yellow lab, starting when I was in middle school. He died just this past January after spending twelve years with our family. I know Buddy is a really common name for a dog, but it still made me feel a connection!
