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

Dog scares away wild leopard

Dog scares away wild leopard

Mumbai: September 5, 2018

A young female wild leopard literally learnt a lesson of ‘let a sleeping dog lie’ when it was forced to make a hasty retreat by a barking stray dog inside a reserve forest in India.

The incident took place on September 4 morning inside the Jhalana Leopard Safari Park in Rajasthan state.

The entire episode was captured on video by a group of wildlife activists and tourists who were on a safari tour in the park at the time.

The safari jeep had stopped on a mud track after the visitors spotted a leopard nearby.

“As our jeep stood still, a stray dog came and lied down in front of it unaware of the prowling leopard nearby. The leopard – a one-and-half-year-old female named Juliet by local guides, which was hiding in a bush about 10 feet away, suddenly pounced on the dog. For a moment, the dog was petrified. But, not to give up easily it stuck its ground. And, though it tucked its tail between its legs -- a sign that it is afraid -- it kept barking louder and louder at the now perplexed leopard. The wildcat stood by the track for a while before slowly retreating into the bushes,” said Kunal Gangwal from World of Wilders who was accompanying the tourists and witnessed the incident.

Later the safari vehicle driver and helpful tourists safely escorted the petrified but brave dog out of the park. And, for the leopard, it seems the ‘bark was worse than the bite’ to make a hasty retreat.
