Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, who revealed a couple of days ago that he is dyslexic, followed up with a post explaining that he thinks visually and wondering how he ever became a Chartered Accountant. In a tweet shared on Wednesday, Mr Kapur wrote that he remembers phone numbers as “musical rhythms.” The Mr India director, who qualified as a Chartered Accountant after graduating in economics, tweeted: “Lessons of Life: I compensated for my dyslexia by imagining everything visually. Or as rhythm and tonality. Explains my love for the visual arts and music. I even remember telephone numbers as musical rhythms. How did someone like me ever become a Chartered Accountant?”

Earlier this week, Shekhar Kapur revealed that he was “completely dyslexic” and has increasingly discovered that other creatives are too. He also tweeted about hating math in school and explained that artificial intelligence is helping. “Lessons of Life: I’m completely dyslexic. And finding more and more artists, poets, musicians suffer from dyslexia too. Are you? With AI I’ve developed a love for visual mathematics, but in school developed a hatred for Maths… of course! With dyslexia, numbers made little sense,” he tweeted.
