One thing I did was just take some several months out of school and come to Jaipur here in India, where I didn't have to go to school. In fact one time, my parents and grandparents put me in school here, but I dropped out after a couple of weeks.

My feeling is there’s no real distinction between pure and applied mathematics, at least not in the long term!

Sometimes in school, math is taught as a robotic subject, where you solve artificial-sounding problems via a sequence of memorized steps.

Ramanujan was a talent of a level that has never been seen, but he certainly put in the hours as well to get the results he was interested in.

You asked this question very eloquently. The answer is that while a good memory and a copious supply of talent is very helpful, there is no substitute for hard work.

Much of the mathematics that’s been the most important to society has been the mathematics scientists found while searching for beauty.

In the U.S., I’d frequently be bored with school and my mother would let me miss school and spend months in Jaipur with my grandfather. There was as much history, stories, Sanskrit, music as well as maths that I learnt there.

I think the orange-pyramid story is a good example of a math problem that can be understood and appreciated by fairly small children (say 8 years).

Somebody who’s extremely talented in mathematics shouldn’t have to forcibly go into engineering for the lack of institutions.

I don't know that I can say too much about that other than for each one of those 29 numbers we can write down a quadratic expression that takes every value except that number. So you definitely need those numbers and you don't need anything else with the 290 theorem.

The basic problems of number theory have remained the same for thousands of years, they have been very similar, they're very simply state-able, and that's something that's very attractive about number theory.

I was overwhelmed by the response I received from the people in my country (Poland). They were curious to know more about Indian culture and its people.

I wanted to show Indian culture, its cities, people, different aspects of society, concept of unity in diversity to the people of Poland.

I am all for freedom of expression but if the protests are causing inconvenience to officials working in the admin block then we have to take steps.

As a professor of electrical engineering, I have learnt not to panic when there is a sudden change but to work on stabilising the situation.
