SURGE is Web Summit’s first conference in India. In 5 years, Web Summit, held annually in Europe, has grown  from 400 attendees to over 42,000 from more than 134 countries. It’s been called “the best technology conference on the planet”. Now they are here in India at Bangalore,and Vedic Maths Forum India was a very active part of it. The objective was to meet people from all parts of the globe and make them aware of the book 'Maths Sutra' and to take the concepts of Vedic Mathematics globally through online tutoring!

Students won't suffer if India revives ancient mental learning technique

Posted on 18 February, 2016 No comments

Avadhāni can compose poetry, while solving a mathematical puzzle, answering riddles and playing chess – all simultaneously.

A colleague once enlisted my help to get his daughter into a particular pre-school in Delhi, because if she didn’t go there, she wouldn’t get into Harvard. At the time I thought he was being facetious, seeing as the child was only two.
In retrospect, I realise he may have been onto something. Desi parents will leave no stone unturned to facilitate the academic and professional success of their children (mea culpa!) and it can’t start soon enough.
But are we doing it right? Are tuitions and coaching classes the way? Do our kids have to work 14 hours a day, and even if they do, are they working smart?
Study techniques like Vedic Maths and the Japanese teaching method have been hailed as facilitators. Truth be told, we haven’t even scratched the surface of what our ancient tradition can bring to our lives. And that too without the unbelievable stress of coaching classes and tuitions.

Vedic Maths in Punjab Schools

Posted on 20 January, 2016 No comments
For once our education system has taken a concrete and correct decision in Punjab to implement Vedic Mathematics in the school curriculum. Period!

What better way to implement the Vedic System than to test the students on it. This Vedic Maths test caught both teachers and students unawares,on the concepts on basic multiplication, addition and subtraction by Vedic Maths methods.

Check this article out on the topic published today 20th January 2016 by the Hindustan Times. A test that caught students, teachers unawares

Education Minister Punjab Dr Daljit Singh Cheema
Teachers knew that students did not know how to solve these simple questions with Vedic math methods as they had not taught them the technique after they were given training in Vedic math from October to December last year. The 50 marks test was compulsory for all the students.

As lakhs of students of government middle and higher secondary schools took the test for Vedic mathematics for the first time in the state, Education Minister Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said Vedic mathematics should not be seen as an agenda of Hindu organizations, adding that it would rather help students to quickly solve simple mathematics problems.It will help our students whose reliance on calculator and computer is growing day by day even for simple calculations.
 
The education department has directed heads of all middle and high schools to conduct a test of Vedic mathematics exercises from Classes VI up to X.
Shri Dinanath Batra Ji, Vedic Maths proponent

Shri Dina Nathji Batra welcomes move

RSS-associated academician Shri Dina Nath Batra, a proponent of Vedic maths, welcomed the government's decision to adopt Vedic maths. "Formulae of Vedic maths make calculations easier. Today, institutions imparting training for various competitive exams use these formulations by using modern terminology for them," he said.
