Prime Minister Narendra Modi during ‘Mann Ki Baat’ has urged parents to teach Vedic maths to their children. Modi stated that students can solve big scientific problems with Vedic mathematics.
PM Modi said: “I would like all parents to teach Vedic maths to their children. With this, their confidence will not only increase; the analytical power of their brain will also increase and yes, whatever little fear some children have about Mathematics, that phobia will also end completely.”
During ‘Mann Ki Baat’ he said that Mathematics has never been a difficult subject for Indians, a big reason for this is Vedic Mathematics. “The credit of Vedic mathematics in modern times goes to Shri Bharati Krishna Tirtha Ji Maharaj. He revived the ancient methods of calculation and named it Vedic Mathematics. The most important thing about Vedic Mathematics was that through it you can do even the most difficult calculations in your mind in the blink of an eye. You must have seen videos of many such youths learning and teaching Vedic maths on social media these days,” Prime Minister said.
He spoke with Gaurav Tekriwal from Kolkata, who for the last two-and-a-half decades, he has been taking this movement of Vedic mathematics forward.
Sharing his experience Tekriwal said: “When I was applying for business school twenty years ago, it used to have a competitive exam called CAT. There were many maths questions in it, which had to be done in little time. So, my mother brought me a book called Vedic Mathematics. Swami Shri Bharatikrishna Tirtha Ji Maharaj had written that book. And in that he gave 16 sutras. In which mathematics used to be very simple and very fast. When I read that, I was very inspired and then my interest was awakened in Mathematics.”
“I understood that this subject, which is a gift of India, which is our heritage, can be taken to every corner of the world. Since then I made it a mission to take Vedic Mathematics to every nook and corner of the world. Because the fear of mathematics haunts everyone. And what can be simpler than Vedic Mathematics,” he added.
He informed that his organization goes to schools, and also gives online education. He said: “The name of our organization is Vedic Maths Forum India. Under that organization, we teach Vedic Maths 24 hours a day through the internet.”
