    Hi Siddhu,

    I was just chatting about this with Maanas last night and wanted to tell you this story. A few years ago Maanas got his cube I asked him to see if he could try doing it on his own. It is very hard because everyone in the school etc looks at the youtube video and gets the answer. Basically doing it fast might force people to not spend time wondering about the transformations intuitively. And so the most amazing experience is lost in this race. Of course Maanas took six months to get it on his own.
    I’m sure you’ve heard of a Dr Majul Bhargava story of how he got his Math intuitions from Rubik’s cube.
