About Insight

This workshop aims at presenting the scientific thought process that has been followed for centuries in our country. All major areas of study from Mathematics and Astronomy to Logic and Grammar are influenced by this thought process. The highlight of this thought process is that it improves the ability to think differently, yet quickly; and communicate precisely. This is embedded in the techniques used for Mathematics, Logic and Astronomy. This workshop will train the students in these techniques through short-cuts and mental calculations that the students can effectively use in their day-to-day activities. In turn, these techniques will enhance in depth understanding of academics, lateral thinking and memory.
