when i was in school(primary education), i was very inquisitive to learn vedic maths and indeed learnt simple stuff like multiplication which used to be better than the normal math approach in terms of number of steps. With practice, one could easily adopt the vedic approach and perform multiplications faster. But I somehow got stuck with division at that time
. But as a kid it was fun learning vedic math. Theres a lot in it and I knew the basics only that I dont even remember now apparently.
Well I was surprised to hear that vedic math is being used in IITs, why do they use it nowadays with the advent of computers, calculators etc. being all around us??
As a hobby, I would stronly recommend to learn Vedic math. It's fun. Thanx to google,
here is a link to get started.
