Que : Why is 2 November, “a day of coincidences” ?
Ans: Remember these coincidences:

  1. It is the birthday of a great man, known for his humility and modesty (me !).
  2. It is also the birthday of a great mathematician/logician George Boole.
    Boole is the father of Boolean algebra, the basis of all modern computer systems.

  3. It is the day when George Bernard Shaw (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Bernard_Shaw), died. Bernard Shaw was an Irish playwright, critic, polemicist and political activist, and recipient of the Nobel Prize in literature (1925).
  4. It is on this day, Christians (Catholics) around the world celebrate “all souls day”, as a day of prayers and remembrance of all departed souls. At bedtime, the supper is left on the table for the souls.
  5. Recently, I discovered that my day of birth was a Thursday. The famous Indian mathematician

    Srinivasa Ramanujan was also born on a Thursday
    (click here to know more about Ramanujan).

No wonder, I am inspired by these giants !

On 2 Nov. 2022, I celebrate my 72nd birth anniversary, as I step into my 73nd year on this earth.
