BE A GOOD HUMAN BEING FIRST; THEN A SUCCESSFUL ONE SAYS MATHEMAGICIAN MINOO JOKHI

Dr Priyadarsini Mitra has rightly said: Good human beings spread good fragrance in their every action which always creates a positive vibration. And this vibration easily can be realized by another good person.  Well known Mathemagician cum Memory Development and Vedic Maths Trainer Minoo Jokhi firmly believes in this statement.

Minoo was a very weak student in his school days. He was so weak in his school days that he could not make a simple multiplication of single digits or could add and subtract single digits correctly. He had practically all hope in life till his 10th grade. He was a COMPLETE  FAILURE in Maths. He was really unhappy in life.

Minoo’s wonderful mother Kety single handedly brought up Minoo and her younger son Hoshang extremely well with full dedication and sincerity. She is today happy her sons are good humans first; then they are successful too. Minoo beleives that all your success is a failure if you are not good humans. The world today is full of deceit, falsehood, wrong actions, negativity where positive people are often wronged. But honesty, sincerity, good actions will always WIN; even if they have to bear lots of troubles. Minoo did not give up and worked hard in Maths and with Will Power and Hard Work improved. And improved  phenomenally.

From being a Math Failure to being a HUMAN CALCULATOR; Minoo has come a long way in life. Today Minoo remembers Tables up to one Crore, can also multiply huge figures mentally at amazing speeds, can remember over 2000 Birthdates and Telephone numbers, can tell you the Day of any Date from 1st January 1600 to date . For e.g. 18th July 1981 was a Saturday. He also remembers Cube Roots up to 1000000000. He also can do Summations and Factorials with ease. He knows Square Roots up to 10,00,000.

Minoo Jokhi is the second person after General Sam Maneckshaw to have been conferred the prestigious Honorary Membership of the Rotary Club of Bombay Hills South. He has performed his very INTERACTIVE MATHEMAGIC PROGRAM all over Mumbai. He has within India also performed in Dharampur, Rajkot, Kerala, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Kolkata and Chennai. Internationally he has been to USA, Canada, Spain, Indonesia and 7 times to Sri Lanka.

Minoo has come more than 10 times on Television. He has come on DD-Girnar channel; Star; Zee and other channels.  He has come 3 times on ALL INDIA RADIO.He wants to explore a career in Acting and has acted in the T.V.Show Nagin 3. He has been invited to many prestigious schools, colleges, clubs and companies. He has performed more than 850 shows. Minoo’s determination and tenaciousness has helped him to create many tricks and techniques and conduct classes in Memory Development where he has various levels of Memory Enhancement Techniques Courses and he taught students from the age of 4 and he has also taught seniors in their late seventies. Today Minoo has a photographic memory and in his classes he stresses on ICVAR i.e. Intelligence, Confidence, Visualisation, Association and Revision which are very essential for training your memory.

While there is so much negativity with regards to Corona virus; Minoo is an extremely positive person who FIRMLY BELIEVES the world will prevail in this Fight against the virus. Minoo is extremely saddened at the way lakhs of people have succumbed to the disease; and he believes that the Fear of the virus is more dangerous than the virus and that one has to be a POSITIVE BRAVE Person in life and face all adversities well. Minoo is confident this dark phase will end soon and that the good old days will return. And that the lessons learned in this phase must never be forgotten. He urges all to never take life for granted.

Minoo is a sports person. He has won several Lawn Tennis Tournaments and also been the Runners-up.  He is also a Cricket All Rounder having played matches with the season ball and has NO FEAR of the same. He has also run Marathons 11 kilometers as well as 21 kilometers. He also is an avid Yoga Person. Not only does he himself do Yoga himself; he also makes his students do it and benefit from it. He says the biggest advantage of students doing yoga is self-mastery and self-identity. Yoga is the vehicle through which one can do that. As the child goes to higher classes, yoga helps to keep the focus that helps the students to study better. He points out Yoga is not just a system of exercises. It is a holistic science promoting specific techniques for integrated development of one’s being- physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. And that regular practice of Yoga ensures sound health, sharp intellect, youthful looks, and abundant energy.

The best thing about this Minoo is that he is hungry to learn constantly and is amazingly versatile. He is a brilliant public speaker having won over 15 first prizes, is an LIC and GIC Agent, is a Numerologist who does Numerology Consultations giving 6 to 7 pages report to his clients, etc.  He loves teaching his students and makes them overcome MATH FEAR. He is a very positive person who despite facing so many problems in life never gave up. Among his life philosophies; some prominent ones are:

  • WHEN FACED WITH A PROBLEM; DON’T SAY “WHY ME”; SAY “TRY ME”.
  • IN MATHS; MEMORY OR IN LIFE; NOTHING IS BORING OR DIFFICULT; IT CAN ONLY BE CHALLENGING OR TRICKY.
  • ASK GOD NOT WHY HE GAVE YOU PROBLEMS; BUT ASK HIM FOR THE STRENGTH TO FACE THE PROBLEMS.
  • SMILE AND LIVE WELL WHEN ALIVE; LAUGH AND GO WHEN THE TIME COMES TO GO TO GOD.
  • SUCCESS COMES IN CANS; NOT CAN’T; WHICH MEANS IT’S POSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE SUCCESS IN LIFE ONLY IF YOU’RE CONFIDENT TO DO SO.

 

Minoo has a deep faith in GOD. He can be contacted on Mobile No 9821407519 and his e-mail is minoojokhi@rediffmail.com   He has a website: http://www.minoojokhi.in

Clarification Required

THE FINANCE ACT 2020 BY THE INTRODUCTION OF SEC 12AB HAS MADE IT MANDATORY TO RENEW CERT,12A WITH IMMIDIATE EFFECT & EVERY 5YEARS THEREAFTER. WHICH WAS VALID TILL LIFE OF THE INSTITUTION UNLESS EXPRESLY CANCELLED BY THE I.T. DEPT .

 

THE EXEMPTION FOR TRUSTS & RELIGIOUS & CHARITABLE TRUST WAS GOVERNED BY SECs 11, 12, &13.WHICH EXPRESLY MANDATED, THAT A TRUST CREATED FOR A SPECIFIED PEOPLE OR FOR A SPECIFIED COMMUNITY WAS NOT COVERED UNDER EXEMPTION OF TAX UNDER SECs 11,12 & 13. & TO BGE ELIGIBLE THE TRUSTS CHARITABLE OBJECTS NEEDS TO BE APLICABLE TO ALL PERSONS WITHOUT DISCRIMINATION OF RELIGION, CAST, CREED OR STATUS, HOWEVER, THIS DISQUALIFICATION WAS NOT APPLICABLE FOR TRUSTS REGISTERED BEFORE THE I.T. ACT 1962 BECAME APPLICABLE, HENCE ALL RELIGIOUS & CHARITABLE TRUSTS REGISTERE BEFORE 1ST APRIL 1962 WHERE EXEMPT FROM TAX & ELIGIBLE FOR CERT.12A & 80G.

 

THE NEW SEC 12AB MANDATES AS ESSENTIAL THAT THE OBJETS MUST INCLUDE APLICABILITY TO ALL PERSONS IRESPECTIVE OF RELIGION CAST CREED OR STATUS, PERPEPECTUITY, TRANSFER TO A NOTHER LIKE TRUST IF IT IS TO BEWOUND UP,THESE MANDATORY CLAUSES & SOME OTHERS, EFFETIVELY MEANS THAT EXEMPTION GIVEN TO RELIGIOUS & CHARITABLE TRUST OF A SPECIFIC COMMUNITY ARE NO LONGER ELIGIBLE FOR TAX EXEMPTION,.

 

MY QUERY IS DOES SEC 12AB OVERIDE THE EXEMPTION GIVEN UNDER SECs 11,12,& 13 FOR TRUSTS CREATED & REGISTERED BEFORE 1962 & THEREFORE ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR EXEMPTION & CERT.12A

OR 80G UNLES THEY AMEND THEIR OBJECTS TO INCLUDE,FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL WITHOUT DIFRETIATING ,CAST, RELIGION, CREED OR STATUS.

The Ordinary Heroes of the Taj Hotel: Rohit Deshpande

The Taj Hotel terror attack has become a massive psychology case study at Harvard! Not ONE Taj employee abandoned the hotel and ran away, but stayed right through the attack. They helped the guests escape and, in the process, many employees died. It confounded psychologists!

Finally, they pin-pointed 3 recruitment strategies :

1) Taj did not recruit from big cities. They recruited from smaller cities where traditional culture still holds strong.
2) They did not recruit toppers. They spoke to school masters to find out who were  most respectful of their parents, elders, teachers and and others.
3) They taught their employees to be ambassadors of their guests to the organisation not ambassadors of the company to their guests.

The results are stupefying.

VEDIC MATHS IS SUCH FUN SAYS MATHS MAESTRO MINOO JOKHI

         Isn’t it amazing if you can calculate 47 multiply by 93 is 4371. And in a few seconds MENTALLY. And still better faster than a calculator. HUMAN COMPUTER Minoo Jokhi who has made his name in MATHEMAGIC CUM MEMORY DEVELOPMENT says it is possible.

Minoo loves to share Math Tricks. E.g. what is 65 multiply by 65. First multiply 5 and 5 which is 25 and take the first digit 6 and multiply it by the next number 7 and the answer is 42 and total answer is 4225. However, Minoo was not a child genius but someone who had a terrible childhood. He was so weak in his school days that he couldn’t do simple tables even till 10 or add or subtract small figures fast. He had practically lost hope that he would ever do something in his life till his 10th std when an amazing transformation took place.

Being ridiculed by his teachers and all children around him; Minoo started to learn basic TABLES until 20. He would add and subtract bus numbers and car numbers.  This soon became a Number Crunching Habit with Minoo. Encouraged by his mother Kety; Minoo soon started to love Numbers. His mother completely encouraged him and she brought up Minoo and his younger brother Hoshang up single handedly amidst lots of problems really well.

              Minoo loves to make Maths easy for kids and even grownups. He elaborates with more examples:       

36 multiply 11=396
68 multiply 11=748
When we multiply 36 and 11, Just write 3 and 6 leaving some space and add 3 and 6 to get 9 and the answer 396. And for 68 times 11 write 8 for the last digit of the answer and adding 6 and 8 we get 14 so write 4 and carry over 1 and add to 6 to get 7 and the answer 748.

With such fabulous and easy tricks; Minoo questions WHY FEAR NUMBERS? Fast Calculations really helps. One must not be dependent on calculators or mobile for small things. Minoo never keeps numbers in his cell phone saved as he is confident he can remember anyone’s number and straight away call when he has to. A firm believer in Never Give Up Attitude; Minoo today knows Maths Tables up to One Crore and remember Cube Roots up to 100 Crores( 1 Billion) ; can also multiply huge figures mentally at amazing speeds ; can tell you the day a person is born if you tell him your Date of Birth. E.g 19th October 1985 was a Saturday and many more such skills.

             Minoo has performed over 850 Mathemagic Shows. He has performed abroad 11 times which includes 7 visits to Sri Lanka and once to USA, Canada, Spain and Indonesia besides performing in various parts of India like Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Kerala, Kolkata, Rajkot, Lonavala, Navsari and Dharampur.

              Minoo is the second Indian after General Sam Manekshaw to be conferred the prestigious Honorary Membership of the Rotary Club of Bombay Hills South. He has been featured in over 90 Newspapers and come over 10 times on Television. He has written over 40 articles on Memory Skills cum Maths Skills in Newspapers.

               The whole world is under Coronavirus attack at the moment. Minoo is extremely saddened to see people all around the globe succumb to the pandemic. Over 8,00,000 people have lost their lives. Being a very emotional person; Minoo is very unhappy about it and stresses the importance of staying POSITIVE MINDED and be brave. Acknowledge that there is a CRISIS and overcome it. For Minoo CRISIS means:

C— Create new choice and skills and thoughts

R— Rewrite your passions

I—- Introspect your mind, body and soul.

S— Stretch yourself to the fullest

I — innovative ideas and inspire yourself

S— Synergize your positive strength

 Minoo is positive that the MUMBAI, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA and the WHOLE WORLD will survive and the Coronavirus phase will go away soon.

               Minoo Jokhi is a friendly teacher. Children love his classes a lot. He conducts classes in Memory-Development, which is his specialty where he has various levels of Memory Enhancement Techniques Courses and also teaches Personality-Development, Public Speaking and Mathematics. He also is a Numerologist and provides Numerology Consultations. His future plans include writing books on Memory-Development and Acting and Modelling. He has acted in the T.V.Show Nagin 3  playing the role of a Pandit. He has also acted in Short Films.

            Minoo is also a talented cricketer and has played Cricket matches too. He was interviewed by ALL INDIA RADIO very recently twice in 2019 and 2020. He despite all the struggles, trials and tribulations is very optimistic about life. The best thing about this Mathemagician is that he is hungry to learn constantly and is very adaptable.

21 times 21= 441.

And

13 times 13= 169
