Two historical events, connected by a common theme, changed my life for good. My real-life experience of 19 Dec. 1978 motivated and inspired me to complete and publish my magnum-opus on 1 Feb. 1980. Maybe it was because I was just lucky enough, or because I was in the right place at the right time. Luck often plays an important role in our achievements.
I cast the same pearls again, in 2021. And I discovered some more swines to add to my list:
- St. Andrews School, Bowenpally
- NSKK High School, Ferozeguda
- Kendriya Vidyalaya, Airforce Station, Begumpet. No website found for this school. It is unbelievable that such schools exist even today.
- Pallavi Model School, Bowenpally
These schools were chosen due to their proximity from where I live. The announcement and reminders were sent about two weeks ago. My sympathies and apologies to students who missed an opportunity to discover the joy of mathematics and an inspiring intellectual giant.
They say, 2 can take the horse to the water, but ….. In fact, even 200 cannot take the animal to the water, if it is a stubborn and unwilling swine. I am happy that I tried. Never mind, I failed once again. I will try again next year, Insha-Allah. I do not give up so easily. I owe this experience to the great Ramanujan and to the mathematics he gave us.
You have not yet reacted or responded to an important announcement I made about the forthcoming National Mathematics Day (quoted below). I infer that you are either not interested or deserve this opportunity. Ignoring communications from a well-intentioned and senior person, of international repute, is a rude,
uncivilised and impolite act. I take this a personal insult. Your behaviour reminds me of an old saying about “Casting pearls before …”. See:
to understand what I mean.
