THE RESULTS of Common Admission Test (CAT) and other competitive exams affirmed the importance of Vedic mathematics afresh, as the number of successful students with knowledge of Vedic maths increased this year.

Gyan Sagar, an institute of Vedic mathematics in the City, offers courses for different age groups. A graduate engineer from MITS, Gwalior, Ravindra Agrawal heads the institute.

Agrawal has introduced new techniques like Ravindra’s Chapati Method and Ravindra’s Straight Ratio Method which are meant for competitive exams, while memory techniques and calculating skills are offered to sixth to twelfth standard students to develop familiarity with figures. His latest invention Rabacus, a unique form of abacus training is for primary school children.

Agrawal recently applied for patent of Rabacus. “We will introduce Rabacus all over India through personal training and franchise,” he said.

Gyan Sagar students said Vedic maths is helping them gain new perspective towards conventional mathematics, improving their understanding and enhancing calculating speed. The courses do not only cater to brilliant or above average students, but even to those who have a phobia of numbers.

Memory techniques in Vedic mathematics are also useful in mastering difficult subjects other than mathematics.Agrawal is engaged in research in the field of Vedic mathematics for 13 years.

He has received various honours, awards and nominations from government and non- government organisations like nomination for ‘Lakhshmipat Singhania- IIM Lucknow National Leadership Award— 20055’ in the category of ‘Young Leader in the field of Science’. His student Rahul got a special award from NASA (USA) for applying Vedic mathematics in Robotic Engineering.

Agrawal is now organising summer camps for school-going students from May 8 in different parts of the City and admission is open to all.
