As I had quoted Paul Erdős in my earlier post, “The Bitter Truth of Love” :
Another Roof, Another Proof.
It is really boring to be lonely and remain fixed at one point. Also you have no one to share thoughts. You just have to keep your thoughts and ideas buried deep inside your heart because you know that there is nobody to listen them. So I decided to visit mathematics hotspots this sizzling summer.
1. Ajitgarh (formerly Mohali), Punjab
At the start of my summer break I will be attending 30th Annual Conference of Ramanujan Mathematical Society (14th May – 17th May 2015) at Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Mohali (as a student). There I would be able to meet some Big Shots like : Harold Edwards (New York University, USA); Ram Murty (Queens University, Canada)…..
2. Pune, Maharashtra
Then I will be visiting Bhaskaracharya Pratishthana [a mathematics research institute registered under University of Pune; Reg. No. MAH/1127/(POONA)(F-967)] for about a month as part of my first summer internship. Pune has over a hundred educational institutes and more than nine deemed universities apart from the University of Pune. Pune has a large number of quality academic and research institutes.
3. Almora, Uttrakhand
I will be in Almora for about two weeks attending : “Undergraduate Summer Workshop on Real Analysis and Algebra” at Centre of Excellence in Mathematical Sciences, SSJ Campus, Kumaon University, Almora. Almora has appropriate environment for attaining calmness and concentrating on mathematics, also as said by Swami Vivekanand:
These mountains are associated with the best memories of our race: Here, therefore, must be one of centres, not merely of activity, but more of calmness of meditation, and of peace and I hope some one to realize it.
4. New Delhi, Delhi
As my fourth destination this summer, I will be at New Delhi to do another summer internship at Ambedkar University Delhi (AUD). AUD was established in 2007 (the same year when NISER was established).
Then finally after travelling for whole of my summer vacations I will return to my own institute which I believe would have by then shifted to its permanent campus at Jatni.
Expect more updates from me about my journey ……… since it is said:
Sometimes it’s the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination.
