If Mayor H S Gohalwaria is to be believed, his clerical staff is upset with his super calculating skills. When he calls the staff for a meeting or to review files, he finishes calculations faster than his staff and is even quick to find an error in calculations.
The mayor shared this at a function organised by NJ's Brilliant Brain Abacus at Maryland Palace located on Dugri road. An inter-school competition was organised by NJ's on December 29 in which about 650 students participated. Out of them, 220 got prizes.
Gohaliwaria, however, was surprised to see the quick oral calculations of the small children. While the teachers were giving oral sums to the kids as a part of demonstration, he was also solving those sums at the same time. "I left a few seconds behind these mini-computers. The formulas being taught to them for calculations are helping them solve the sums quickly. Such opportunities were not available in our times. I am amazed to see the talent in kids these days. Even the parents are also equally aware to provide the right direction to their kids as per their abilities," he said.
