The Book Of Numbers by Shakuntala Devi
At age 3, Shakuntala Devi's prodigious ability to calculate numbers was noticed when she began doing her father's card tricks, he had his own touring magic show by then , not with sleight-of-hand or pre-arrangement of the deck, but by memorizing in order all 52 cards. Her life has been one of traveling the world and demonstrating her remarkable talents ever since. My turn arrived, and after a warm greeting, Shakuntala Devi led me to a chair beside her altar on which a small murthi of Lord Ganesha sat amid offerings of fruit and flowers.

Devi has authored two books on astrology, several short stories for children, a book on Hindu mythology, and naturally numerous books on mathematics.

Nobody understands what it is, they just have some remarkable talent with figures, and it seems unrelated to any other talent, and they can be brilliant mathematicians or they can be totally untutored.
It's not understood, but it's a fascinating thing. Devi has no such problem in attributing her talent. She has no formal education. Avoid yoghurt, cheese or other heavy foods after sunset as they are best taken in the daytime for optimal digestion. More wisdom Click to enlarge.
