Guest Blog #31 – Anand C

I second !
and all the pangas you can get into……..
That’s waht makes it worth it!
Tilo – you said it. The AKR VS Ramanujan conversation is still fresh in my mind. But you were respectful even when you pointed out a mistake, so I dont know what the panga is!
Am reading Robert Kanigel’s book on Ramanujan, it’s a good read.
Febina – thanks for the comment!
Well Anand here is my grouse about blogs – I wish people would comment online, because comments generate comments, debates and make the whole experience more lively than a one-on-one with the blogger alone.
Not that I don’t appreciate the fact that people write in – I definitely do! I am not curious what did Febina tell you?
