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

3-year-old girl falls into 110 feet deep borewell, rescued safely after 30 hours

A three-year-old girl who had accidentally fallen into a 110-feet deep borewell in India on July 31 was safely rescued after 30 hours on August 1.

The incident took place at Murgiyachak locality in Munger town of Bihar state, India. The borewell was being dug inside the house of the girl’s maternal grandfather, Umesh Nandan Prasad Sah.

The girl named Sanno had fallen into the shaft and got stuck at a spot around 45 feet below the surface at about 4 pm on July 31.

“Sanno had come to her maternal grandparents’ place at Murgiyachak and fell into the borewell while playing,” said Munger Superintendent of Police Gaurav Mangla.

Her family members who were just a few yards away and saw her falling raised an alarm, he said.

“Rescue work began immediately. A trench parallel to the shaft was dug, a little over 45 feet deep the level at which the girl was estimated to be trapped. The rescue team lowered an oxygen pipe to ensure supply of fresh air to the little girl,” said Mangla.

The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) team was soon joined in the rescue efforts. While the horizontal axis was being cleaved out to pull the girl out safely, the team also helped the girl’s mother to talk to her inside with the help of an audio device.

As it began to rain lightly in the evening, tarpaulin sheets were placed over the trench to prevent water from seeping as it could have jeopardised the rescue operation, said Mangla.

All the while people who had gathered around consoled the distraught parents and encouraged the rescue team.

The team’s efforts bore fruit when Sanno was pulled out safely -- almost 30 hours after she fell -- at 9.45 pm on August 1.

Smeared in mud she was rushed to Sadar Hospital in an ambulance, along with her anxious and relieved parents. A student of Montessori House of Children, Notre Dame in Munger, Sanno is now being treated for minor injuries and trauma.

  2. The true test will come when I tell them the white on the outside of the meat is a natural edible mold called Penicillim. If they keep eating despite this then I know we have an undisputed winner.
