An Irish lady mathematician :-) :-) :-)

Hats off to Synges!

Motivation: Zakir Hussainji on tabla; horse running

This comes from real “sadhana”. I think I had read somewhere that Zakir Hussain used to get up at 2:00 am in the morning to do “riyaaz” with his father Ustad Allah Rakha.

The same kind of passion, spirit and “sadhana”/tapasya are required to do real mathematics or to acquire “siddhi”.

I was wondering if Prof. Manjul Bhargava too could play such stuff on his tabla. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Hats off to “the” tabla maestro and another a “Fields” medalist-cim-tabla player.
