Overview: Locks


Locks, Mahabharata and Mathematics:An Exploration of Unexpected Parallels is an engaging book by Viswanathan Raghunathan, who is an author, academic, hobbyist, CEO, and a columnist. Earlier, he was the President of ING Vysya Bank, and has also served as the CEO of GMR Varalakshmi Foundation, since 2005. The Corruption Conundrum And Other Paradoxes And Dilemmas, Ganesha on the Dashboard, and Don�t Sprint The Marathon are some of the books that helped him gain popularity as an author in the genre of corporate finance. Locks, Mahabharata and Mathematics explores the interesting relationship between mathematics, the Mahabharata and locks � three extremely disparate objects. This edition of the book was published by Harper India, in March, 2013.

In Locks, Mahabharata and Mathematics, author Raghunathan draws an analogy between the relationship of Draupadi with her five husbands, and an ancient padlock that needs five different keys to be opened. V. Raghunathan draws many interesting parallels between locks, pure mathematics, and the different stories of Mahabharata. The book is divided into ten chapters, and includes stories about Yudhishthira's gambles, Draupadi's life, as well as the lives of Kacha and Shukrayacharya. Though Raghunathan is not a mathematician himself, he is interested in the subject. He is well versed with the Mahabharata and he has been interested in knowing about locks of various kinds, from an early age. In this book, his three interests come together, as he shows readers how there are common threads running between three apparently disparate subjects. If you are planning to buy books online, you can find this one at different online bookstores listed on Junglee.com.

Locks, Mahabharata and Mathematics is a book that offers to readers ample scope for lateral thinking. Raghunathan presents the stories of the Mahabharata with a relaxed narrative and a contemporary touch and thus helps the young people understand the epic better. Raghunathan also offers some food for thought for readers interested in finding relations between unrelated events or objects. The book is written in English and has 224 pages. The ISBN 10 number for this paperback edition is 9350296438, while its ISBN 13 code is 9789350296431.
