Vedic Mathematics is proved to be an important instrument in this ‘rediscovery of India’.

In his recent address on the radio and television programme, Mann Ki Baat, Hon’ble Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Modi Ji guided a boy, Usman, to study Vedic Mathematics to succeed in competitive exams. He told him that knowledge of Vedic mathematics can help solve mathematical calculations as fast as a computer can. Later, our PM Mr. Modi, discussed about the new National Education Policy (NEP), and emphasised on developing a mathematical thinking and scientific temperament among children. Reiterating the concepts of great mathematicians, the Hon’ble Prime Minister said that mathematical thinking power means not just solving the problems of mathematics, but a way of thinking. After the incarnation of the new NEP, discussions have been taking place in the whole country about how it can be implemented. An important aspect of the Hon’ble Prime Minister with regard to its execution in the context of school education relates to the National Curriculum Framework and what should be incorporated in the school curriculum, which might reflect the fundamental points of the NEP as well as assist children develop critical thinking, as the PM suggested. In this context, it would be worth considering the possibility of including Vedic Mathematics. Before answering such essential concerns, it would be relevant to know what Vedic Mathematics is.

What is Vedic Mathematics?

The “Vedic Mathematics” is called so because of its origin from Vedas. To be more specific, it has originated from “Atharva Vedas” the fourth Veda. “Atharva Veda” deals with the branches like Engineering, Mathematics, sculpture, Medicine, and all other sciences with which we are today aware of.
Vedic Mathematics is a collection of Techniques/Sutras to solve mathematical arithmetics in easy and faster way. It consists of 16 Sutras (Formulae) and 13 sub-sutras (Sub Formulae) which can be used for solving problems involved in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, calculus, conics.
This subject was revived largely due to the efforts of Jagadguru Swami Bharathi Krishna Tirtha Ji of Govardhan Peeth, Puri Jaganath (1884-1960).

Preparing Every Child for future…

Every child dream of becoming successful in life. There are few essential skills that are required to touch the pinnacle in life. Mathematical ability is one such skill. Mathematics is not only associated with academics but it is directly associated to logical and analytical thinking of students. In a recent survey conducted by NAS throughout the country for school students by the Indian government, the average percent of correct answers show a declining trend as we move to the higher classes.
The biggest problem that students face as they progress to higher classes is calculations. As the numbers and calculations become humongous, the mere sight of such mathematical problems sends shivers down the spine of students. Vedic Mathematics can help to sort this problem of students.
Thus, it is imperative that students try to hone their mathematical ability by learning the sutras of Vedic Mathematics so that we can have more “Ramanujans and Shakuntala Devi’s “from our nation.
