Watch a Video of the “Human Calculator”, Shakuntala Devi, in Action

Today, Google.com’s illustration tribute was for Shakuntala Devi, who was nicknamed the “Human Calculator” for her intense and prodigal talent of being a mathethmical wizard that would conjure problems and resolutions to them all in her mind. She was born in 1929 in India, and died this year in April. She was 83 and November 4 would’ve been her 84th birthday.

Below is an old clip of Devi explaining her gift and showcasing a bit of it. #RealGirlPower
