Budding Math Whiz
Neelakantha Bhanu Prakash, a 20-year-old math prodigy, won a gold medal for India at the Mind Sports Olympics (MSO) on August 15, 2020. He is an alumnus of Bhavan's Public School (Vidyashram), Jubilee Hills, and is pursuing Mathematics (Hons.) at St. Stephen's College, New Delhi. This spectacular win makes him the 'Fastest Human Calculator' in the World. This is also India's first win in this prestigious mental skill Olympics that is held in London every year.
Beating 29 competitors, up to 57 years of age, from 13 countries, Bhanu won the gold medal with a clear margin of 65 points. Spellbound by Bhanu's speed, the judges were compelled to introduce additional rounds to confirm his accuracy. Bhanu proved his mettle with elan yet again.
What makes Bhanu a wonder kid is not only the array of his awards but his vision of eradicating math phobia prevalent in the country, especially among the underprivileged communities. To fulfill this mission and prevent government school students from dropping out due to the fear of math, Bhanu has founded 'Exploring Infinities'. The organisation is actively creating math curriculum and conducting shows in collaboration with the government. Under his VISION Math, Bhanu plans to create math labs through which he hopes to reach out to millions of children and make them fall in love with math and arithmetic calculations.
Bhanu further wishes to popularise math as a mental sport in India and encourage the practice of brain training. He hopes that more Indians will win similar awards in the days to come. The Bhavan's family looks forward to Bhanu's promising future and wishes him great luck.
