Education and knowledge are two tools that can help build a bridge to a better future. It is essential that children who will take charge tomorrow equip themselves with education and knowledge so that a brighter future is built. From Gautam Buddha to Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, India has witnessed many great educators from time to time who have proved that education truly empowers a person.

One such educator truly set a benchmark in mathematics with her extra-ordinary calculation skills and she was none other than ‘Shakuntala Devi’! Her ability to calculate multi-digit calculation of big numbers was just phenomenal. Ideally, to calculate such big digits we would stick to the use of a calculator but Shakuntala Devi was even faster than a calculator which was why she was renowned as ‘The Human-Computer’.

Shakuntala Devi is an epitome of the fact that education and knowledge pave the way to progress and empowerment as her intelligence still echoes throughout the world and her achievements are still praised! As luck would have it, now everyone would get to know more about her life and accomplishments in the Vidya Balan starrer ‘Shakuntala Devi’.

The upcoming biographical film just further holds proof to the fact that immense knowledge and intelligence can immortalize your essence in the world as one has better the future and inspired several others in lifting up the realm of knowledge. The audience will see Vidya Balan essay the lead role of the famous ‘Human Computer’ on July 31.
