Records come and go. I do not like personal pride. I want to build a community of mathematicians, human calculators.
More than a cash prize, what it matters is recognition. I am being included in the Global Hall of Fame.
I hold 4 world records and 50 Limca records for being the fastest human calculator in the world. Breaking these records, once held by Math maestros like Scott Flansburg and Shakuntala Devi, is a matter of national pride. I have done my bit to place India on the global level of mathematics.
