Locks, Mahabharata and Mathematics: An Exploration of Unexpected Parallels

Quantity:

Jarasandha, a tyrannical ruler in the Mahabharata, was born as two symmetric halves-one from each of a king's two wives. The half-infants joined to make a whole when a demoness juxtaposed them while preparing to devour the lumps of flesh. Thus, Jarasandha could be split apart, but would come together if the halves were laid side by side in the correct way. Until Bhima, the strongest of the Pandavas, split him asunder, and ensured he stayed dead by throwing the left half to the right and vice versa. In a similar vein, there is a symmetrical lock, each side of which is only half the whole. To open or close it, you need to work both the halves. The padlock, like Jarasandha's story, takes us to the concept of symmetry in a wide sense, into the world of mathematics and science.
