Dr. Rashmi Mantri is settled in Scotland, UK where she runs British Youth International College. She originally hails from a very small town of India, Pushkar in Rajasthan. Pushkar being a small town did not have good living or educational opportunities. Dr. Rashmi was a very bright student since childhood, but her family’s orthodox mindset was not ready for a girl education. After her early education, she was asked to halt education. Dr Rashmi was not ready for quitting her education and she fought with her parents and extended family to study and could have only completed the very basic studies while living in Pushkar.

After MSc, the same university gave her the double Scholarship grant to do her PhD in computer science due to her meritorious performance. After these steps, she never LOOKED BACK.
She set her feet in the IT industry successfully going forward. One fine day she, asked her son, Dhruv, a simple Maths calculation that he could not answer, he was at level Primary 5. At that time, she decided to teach him Maths using a very humble tool called Abacus. After some time Dhruv started producing extraordinary results due to learning Abacus mathematics. Dhruv’s calculation skills got so better that he was given an opportunity to present his skills in UK’s top talent show “Little Big Shots”. They awarded him as “Human Calculator”.
