Shakuntala Devi

Shakuntala Devi constituted a trust — Shakuntala Devi Educational Foundation Public Trust (R) — which will be the flagship of all the educational initiatives she would soon be launching.Multiplying two 13-digit numbers in her head in 28 seconds got her a space in the Guinness Book of World Records. For her, success, struggles and sorrows, all came in a single string: from a state of no schooling, no proper food, no deserved clothing or shelter in Basavanagudi to an exclusive, unmatchable brand-brand that hogs global media limelight. She also owns homes in Bangalore, London and New York.Her book "Mathability: Awaken the Mathematical Genius in Your Child” explains how to conquer the fear of mathematics. She has 15 books and two short stories to her credit.

Shakuntala devi is an old fart lady, just trying to earn money by not doing anything worthwhile and just trying to dupe everyone.

She is the biggest fraud on earth, she runs her business all over world and does not even pay her assistants any salary. She brings her assistants to foreign countries on tourist visa, telling the embassy that these are some relatives, so that she does not have to pay for their work permit.

I want to warn all the embassies, especially the UK and US embassy. Beware of her, she is not a trusting lady.
