k5686691Ever faced a job or competitive exam interview, with questions being fired at you, the moment you adjusted yourself in the seat? And the kind of questions that you would've expected only in your worst of nighmares...For example, what is the sea-route from India to England?? Or in which year did Vasco de Gama touch the Indian soil? Or what were those three words that Archimedes uttered when he discovered the buoyancy principle in his bathroom??

Vedic mathematics is a system of mathematics consisting of a list of 16 basic sūtras, or aphorisms. They were presented by a Hindu scholar and mathematician, Bharati Krishna Tirthaji Maharaja, (He was also the Shankaracharya of Govardhan Math, Puri, from 1925 until he passed away in 1960.)


Tirthaji claimed that he found the sutras after years of studying the Vedas.
