Just watched Shakuntala Devi and had a thought

Full disclosure I moved to India only in 2015 so I did not know much about her before this movie. Honestly it is amazing and I am completely in awe of how she is able to perform complex math in such a short time, but one question I had throughout the movie is why did she not use her mathematical skills for pursuing research in mathematics? I think if she did so she could’ve brought about so many changes and made a big difference. I understand she didn’t go to school but she didn’t need to do that for this anyway. From the movie and wiki page i see that she only did math shows in which people ask her questions and she answers them.

What are your thoughts?

Shakuntala Devi is a wasted opportunity

This is deeply flawed movie. It makes flawed arguments against patriarchy and motherhood. And then it devalues feminism by just showing it off as self obsession. It adulates Shakuntala Devi's genius instead of humanising it. All the characters look like they are taken out of a comic.

It does ask a good question though- Can geniuses raise a family? ( There's an excellent documentary Slingshot that deals with the same question. It's on YouTube.)

Can she take the responsibilities that come with it? Or will her love for mathematics come in the way. Β The movie shows that the answer is no but also kinda ends on a note that suggests that it is justified. She was neither a good wife nor a good mother. But in the end, her being a genius justifies it?

Even with all her god given mathematical abilities( of which she had no rational reason to be proud of), she didn't do anything for anyone but herself. And the movie supports this egotistical way of life. That's where it's flawed.

This is just talking about the movie as it is. I haven't even talked about how pathetic it is as a biography, and that too of a famous mathematician. Very disappointed. Waiting for Raat akeli hai to balance the mood.

What are Shakuntala Devi's contributions to Mathematics?

With Shakuntala Devi's biopic about to release, she has been in the limelight. Apart from being called the 'Human Computer', she often gets mentioned to be a genius who made mathematics easier for students.

What is the opinion of mathematicians towards her? Did she have any significant contributions to mathematics or was she just a really talented author on mental calculations?

Does anyone know if I can buy Shakuntala Devi's book "The World of Homosexuals"?

There's a scanned copy but wondering if there's at least a clearer pdf that can be printed out and be given to someone as an actual book? Or if the book is being sold somewhere, since google isn't really helping.

I hope the Shakuntala Devi movies touches on the subject about her husband sexuality. What do you guys think?

Her husband was a gay man and she even wrote a book about homosexuality.
