Last week (unofficial) History of Math Week was celebrated in Pune. Lectures about work of Galois, Abel, Newton and Bhaskaracharya were delivered at various institutes in Pune. So to attend lectures I visited Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune and Mathematic Department of Pune University.
Though I don’t have much interest in History of Math (like who discovered which theorem or method or zero). But, its a good experience to see the theorem from point of view of a person who first published it.

Moreover the bird which I pointed out in my earlier post (Kya Mangta Hai) keep returning to that tree for berries.
