    Fascinating

    it's fascinating to see what a brain is capable of, memorizing, being complex and full of real beauty and being fine.  the beauty of an intellectual mind. It is like a garden, big and beautifully arranged. I wish I can become like that one day.

    Overnight, in answer to my own question, who are the moderns, I remembered Professor Sen. A true modern intellectual. I don't know a lot about him. I came upon his name by complete chance about 5 years ago in relation to his (then) recently published book, The Argumentative...

    It Just Came Nurturally

    From the time I was 16 or so, even though I detested high school and suffered terribly at the hands of peers, teachers and family, I knew my future lay in some kind of mathematical science. It was my escape route. Or so I dreamed and schemed. The only other escape route I could...
