NATIONAL MATHEMATICS DAY December 22nd

National Mathematics Day

It is said that Mathematics is the mother of all Sciences!! True without Mathematics no arts or Science subject can develop and flourish. Hence it is in the fitness of things that National Mathematics day is observed and that is on December 22nd today. Envius Thoughts brings out a Sunday Story on this day for the information of all our esteemed viewers which is bound to provide some good inputs. Let us enjoy the post on this salubrious Sunday! This is on the 1786th Day of the Blog and 1720th post. Let us carry on.
National Mathematics Day is celebrated on 22 December every year to mark the birth anniversary of legendary Indian mathematician, Srinivasa Ramanujan and his contributions in the field of mathematics. Let us read more about National Mathematics Day, its history, significance and how is it observed.

As we know that since ancient times various scholars had made significant contributions to Mathematics including Aryabhata, Brahmagupta, Mahavira, Bhaskara II, Srinivasa Ramanujan and others. At the very young age, Srinivasa Ramanujan showed the signs of an unfolding genius and his contributions regarding fractions, infinite series, number theory, mathematical analysis and so on set an example in mathematics.

On 22 December 2012, the former Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh, paid tribute to Srinivasa Ramanujan at a function organised on the occasion of the 125th birth anniversary of the great mathematician Srinivasa Iyengar Ramanujan in Chennai. 22 December was declared as National Mathematics Day. Thus, on 22 December 2012, National Mathematics Day was celebrated across the country for the first time.
National Mathematics Day 2019: Significance

The main objective behind the celebration is to raise awareness among people about the importance of Mathematics for the development of humanity. We can’t ignore that several initiatives are taken to motivate, enthuse and inculcate a positive attitude towards learning Mathematics among the younger generation of the country. On this day, training is also provided to the Mathematics teachers and students through camps and highlights the development, production, and dissemination of teaching-learning materials for Mathematics and research in related areas.

How is National Mathematics Day celebrated?
National Mathematics Day is celebrated in various schools, colleges, universities, and educational institutions in India. Even the International Society UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) and India had agreed to work together to spread Mathematics learning and understanding. Along with this, various steps were taken to educate the students in mathematics and spread knowledge to the students and learners all over the world.
NASI (The National Academy of Science India) is the oldest science academy situated in Allahabad. To celebrate National Mathematics Day, NASI conducts a workshop in applications of Mathematics and Ramanujan. The workshop is attended by popular lecturers and experts in the field of Mathematics from across the nation. Speakers at the country and world level discuss Srinivasa Ramanujan’s contribution to mathematics.

The two days workshop on the topic ‘History of Indian Maths before 16th Century’ is also organised during 30-31 December, 2019 at the NASI headquarters at Prayagraj.

The theme of the workshop will be important talks/presentations followed by a thorough discussion on the contributions of Indian Mathematicians from the Vedic period to the medieval period which have been accepted by the whole mathematical world without controversy. Discussion in the workshop will cover the following topics:

– Indian Contribution during Vedic Period
– Indian Contribution during Classical period
– Indian Contribution during the medieval period.

All the states of India celebrate National Mathematics Day in different ways. Various competitions and mathematical quizzes are conducted at schools, colleges, and universities. Mathematics talent and students from all over India participate in these programs and workshops.
About Srinivasa Ramanujan and his contributions in Mathematics
Srinivasa Ramanujan was born on 22 December, 1887, Erode, India and died on 26 April, 1920 at Kumbakonam. His family was of the Brahmin caste and lived in poverty. At the age of 12, he had gained knowledge in Trigonometry and without anyone’s help, he had developed his own theorems and ideas.Just at the age of 15 he obtained a copy of George Shoobridge Carr’s Synopsis of Elementary Results in Pure and Applied Mathematics.

He had spent his childhood days in great difficulty in poverty. He used to borrow books and read books from friends in school. When he was young, he took up the job of clerk to meet the economic needs of the house, and when he gets the time he used to solve mathematics questions and worked on various types of theorems. Once, an Englishman saw those pages,he was impressed and took a personal interest. He sends Srinivasa Ramanujan to the Hardy, the Professor of Oxford University. He then recognized the talent hidden in him and thereafter he got fame worldwide.

His papers were published in the Journal of the Indian Mathematical society in 1911. He had compiled about 3900 results mainly identities and equations that too on his own without anyone’s assistance. Several results out of them are original and novel like the Ramanujan prime, The Ramanujan theta function, partition formulae and mock theta functions. These results further inspired several other research and opened new fields of work. He discovered his own theory of divergent series, worked out the Riemann series, the elliptic integrals, hypergeometric series and the functional equations of the zeta function. Number 1729 is known as the Hardy-Ramanujan number.

National Mathematics Day is observed on 22 December every year to spread awareness about the importance of mathematics and the contributions made by the scholar of mathematics Srinivasa Ramanujan. The government of India decided in 2012 to celebrate National Mathematics Day on 22 December on the birth anniversary of Srinivasa Ramanujan. Since then it was celebrated on 22 December every year.
The post’s aim was to provide some basic facts and we do hope the objective was achieved to some extent. We are sure that you have enjoyed reading this post.
This far is for this week’s Sunday story and tomorrow we shall meet as usual. Till then GOODBYE!

GO FOR A RIDE DAY-22nd November.

Image result for go for a ride day 2019"

Let us not ride on others nor allow others to ride on us!
Today the twenty second of November is GO FOR A RIDE DAY!
Observed today all over the world! a day to get out into the world
And take a ride with our bike or car or our shoes. no need for a destination!

Just let us follow our nose!We can find our own  way to take part in
Go For a Ride Day,  vehicle plays no major role. We try fancy  like a sleigh,
A horse, a helicopter or a skateboard.  go through nature or take a city trip.
We go with our friends or on our own. journey is all that counts.

Go For A Ride Day encourages to get out into the world – hop on bike,
Into car, or simply get walking boots out of storage and go on a trip.
Not worry too much about where we are going, just enjoy the journey.
What with all cell phones and emails constantly intruding on our lives,
Everyone needs some time to just get away from it all and feel
We need every now and then. no better way than going for a ride!

WORLD CONSUMER RIGHTS DAY IS TODAY!

Theme for “World Consumer Rights Day” today is ‘Making digital
Marketplaces fairer’- chosen with the aim to promote digital
Marketplaces more accessible, safer and fairer for consumers
Across the globe- consumer satisfaction became consumer delight!

Days were there and continue at times -consumers taken for a ride
In cost and quality, measure and means. Dawned consumer right thoughts
In the Society- laws were made, consumers/customers made aware of rights
They enjoy. The world is changing fast and thoughts and actions quite right!

On line marketing, anything sitting in front of all powerful
COMPUTER-making use of internet facility from any part of the globe
Whatever we need, reaching our door steps in a couple of days,
Risk is always there with anything on earth- not an exemption here!

 

 

CUTS AND WOUNDS!

 

Cuts and pastes common in the computer world we know and do
At times right, at times wrong- wrong leading to plagiarism too!
Knowingly doing is an act criminal-goes unnoticed
Wrong is wrong and with one’s conscience he gets punished!

Cuts and wounds common with a razor and with a new blade
Causing blood to ooze and pain to follow suit awful-man made
Negligence cause many a time –carefulness may help quite sure
If one were to suffer he has to -that is God’s will very pure!

Cuts and wounds caused by the cruel words from the tongue
Atrocious and sinful act by the individuals –rogue.
Noble and kind people love all and serve all, hurt never
By thoughts, words and deeds –they make sure to help ever!

 

May 17-  World Telecommunication Day

 

 

 

 

Man in his stone age and earlier knew no communication
Yet went on their lives and living sans any hypertension
Ages moved fast and humans began to learn the art of talking
Culture, practices, art of life greatly developed galloping!

Fast delivered talk and conversation, telephones, telegrams
Easily hand delivered tapals though slow, steady-phonograms
To day we enjoy the fruits of science and technology quite quick
Facilitating contacts any where in the world any time-mirth!

‘WORLD COMMUNICATION DAY’ is today to thank all those concerned
Replying mails received from the farthest corner in no time – secured
Easiest to reply the emails- no paper, no pen, no cover,
No post box- yet I have no mind- pity we see in the society!

TALE OF A BLOGGER PART XIII

GODDESS OF TIME

“Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind”.
“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages”.: William Shakespeare
“Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no laziness, no procrastination: never put off till tomorrow what you can do today”:. Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
“Paradox of time” is the greatest of the paradoxes in the world!

There are innumerable thoughts and quotes on TIME and that shows the importance and significance of time that makes or mars a person.

Attendant term is PUNCTUALITY!

Very often I use to admire with reverence and respect at the Goddess of Time who governs the entire Universe.

Some time back I started a serial in Tamil titled “கால தேவதை”- “Goddess of Time” and its chapter 7 is to be pursued and I posted the same in my Face book. That explains the role time has been playing in my life since my birth to this day!

As I think of my life in the WONDERLAND OF BLOGGING, I pleasantly recollect my life of 614 days and 650th post this day!

I believe “Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind”.

As Shakespeare said “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages”.:

Yes, I am playing same role at different times and different roles at the same time! That indeed is a paradox which I enjoy! Out of that seven ages, where I stand is a puzzle to me.

“Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no laziness, no procrastination: never put off till tomorrow what you can do today”: Honestly I am trying to follow this advice of Chesterfield and only the Great Goddess of Time can and must testify how far I have succeeded.

ENVIUS THOUGHTS 650!

In tune with the practice of ENVIUS THOUGHTS today being the 650th post, it is TALE OF THE BLOGGER PART XIII.

Anything that appears to be interesting to me since my 600th post, I would like to share with my esteemed viewers.

My last part of this series appeared on 11th September and today it is the next-Part XIII at the 650th post.

UWAI-CREATOR DR. K Thiyagarajan

I made a reference in a few of my ENVIUS THOUGHTS about UNITED WRITERS ASSOCIATION OF INDIA having its Headquarters in Chennai ably organized and administered by Dr. Chevalier K Thiyagarajan engaged in social, literary and educational fields. He has been selected to receive a prestigious award in November and I have pleasure to share  a news item in the HINDU with my esteemed viewers:

dr_thiyagarajan

Internationally renowned Population Expert and Founder of United Writers’ Association, Chennai, Chevalier Dr.K.Thiagarajan has been selected for conferment of BHARAT JOTHI EXCELLENCE Honour and Gold Medal by Bharatiya Samaj Vikas Academy,Mumbai during the Annual Convention on “Ëmpowerment of Teachers for Building Sustainable Global Society” during November,16 at Mumbai.

Always clamoring for consistent cultivation of human excellence and unleashing Human potential in all its myriad manifestation and armed with legendary negotiating skills, Dr.Thiagarajan in his vast panorama of literary horizon spanning for over three and half decades often orchestrates his literary sensibilities creating an conducive environment devoid of magnificence, extravagance and grandeur anchored as much as by rigor and variety in repertoire as by imagination and inventiveness in improvisation. Passion, Perfection and Practice – the subtle intangible buzz words were some of the words he keep mesmerizing so often with sweeping rapidity in all his lecture circuits and workshops.

A multi-disciplinary scholar articulating authentically in search of nuances in various realms of knowledge and rated as a strong campaigner for sustained social responsibility and considered as an epitome of inimitable and incredible humility and simplicity, Dr. Thiagarajan’s enunciation of philosophy of service in a coherent, disciplined and consistent manner (which is a true calling of his life) and legitimatizing them how to plan and execute the tasks and the profound interaction with a galaxy of top-notch leaders in variegated disciplines who exemplified as role-models bespeak of the abundant respect and warmth showered on him. Goals in life should always be fine-tuned with clear-cut objective trying to shoot a target at a shooting range bamboozling one’s capabilities whatever one is trying to accomplish.

Medley of talents:
An evangelist for ushering and radicalizing leadership qualities and indeed any amount of epithet – be it scholar of eminence, teacher, researcher with International exposure, holder of impeccable academic accolades, manager of academic Programmes nurturing high performance work environment, resounding organizer, Creative global thinker fits admirably this eminent journalist whose innate vision and Relentless quest for leveraging and infusing sustainable vigor into the frontier and demystifying areas of research to reach global standards has been always awe-inspiring as a dazzling diamond to the diadem of his scholarship and erudition. Churchill’s reverberating aphorisms fits more admirably this eminent scholar: “A much modest man who has nothing he needs except to be modest about”.

Currently he is piloting an intensive comparative study on competitiveness and Economic development of nations and the application of competitive principles to myriad social problems such as equitable and sustainable socio-economic development, judicious use of natural resources, cultural diversity, health care, conservation of environment and sustained corporate social responsibility.

I pray and wish many more laurels adorn him in the days to come as he richly deserves this and more.

Look at the great gesture on the part of respected Poet Padmaja Iyengar and her team- they have extended an official invitation to the 17 year old budding poet Miss. S. Nivetha , my ward (who is familiar to my esteemed viewers of the Blog) and she is also flying to Vijayawada with me and returning on 14/11 after presenting her poem- published in the great ANTHOLOGY-AMRAVATI POETIC PRISM 2016.

Proceedings of the function and Meet will be one of my forthcoming SUNDAY STORIES- probably on 20/11 or 27/11/2016.

FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS -PLEASURE AND PAIN

The great FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS has come and gone. I made the following post for the occasion:

“Thamasoma jyothir gamaya”- Vedic hymn-Let light give place to darkness
“Lead Kindly light amidst the encircling gloom”-a great English poet-smartness.
Here is the “FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS”- called Diwali, Deepavali-lights in rows
A great day of joy and mirth, peace and happiness-man in reverence bows!

A day of victory for the noble forces on evil ones-happy
A day of success for wisdom over ignorance- to enjoy proudly
A day of social calls on kith and kin exchanging greetings joyfully
A day of thanking the Almighty for all HIS grace and love piously!

On this day let us avail the ‘joy of giving’ to the poor and destitute
What all are possible to the orphans and old age people- to substitute
Their agony and grief with joy and happiness through our acts of kindness
Let this FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS bring in great light and brightness in all our lives!

Let us not pollute the minds of the poor with our extravaganza
Let us not pollute the atmosphere with noise and smoke everywhere –
Let us not scare the dumb cats and dogs, cows and crows with sound enormous
Let us enjoy the FESTIVAL with lighting the lamps dispelling darkness!

Having witnessed the day that should have been a holy, sacred, serene, happy, joyous, solemn and social day, I am in deep distress at the degeneration of the day- a day of extreme extravaganza, nasty pomp, condemn-able wastage  of money, time, energy, health and so on. It is really an irony and despicable condition in the society that the haves never bother about the unfortunate have-nots. While there are millions of orphaned children yearning for a piece of bread and sweet in the roads,  orphanages and children’s homes, old and destitute people are suffering agony in the old age homes and streets,  here are affluent youth WASTING SIX THOUSAND rupees for a cracker that makes the people and animals deaf with high syllable sounds in a couple of minutes. What a degradation of our values, what a demonetization of our noble thoughts, what a degeneration of our principles! Who is responsible for such a sad state of affairs? Elders and parents teachers and religious heads who have miserably failed to inculcate values in our wards.

It is the future of my India that is Bharath is at stake. Let us do our bit to arrest this nasty developments in the society.

CONCLUSION

As the days progress, a sort of fear is gripping in me as to how long I will be able to continue my daily post in ENVIUS THOUGHTS!!!!!I know it is all the will of Goddess of Time and as long as she gives me the strength of mind and body, I can continue. Let us see how SHE WILLS IT.

Thanks for all your encouragement and support in my literary endeavors.

I do hope and confident of the “XIV part of Tale of A Blogger”-700th post on eighteenth December.
