For the Love of It…

“Pure Mathematics is,in its way,the poetry of logical ideas.”

Looks like English is not the only language which has poetries!

I have never been a Math freak.I always had interest  in maths.Although as I grew older my brains shifted downwards and became smaller for the methodical part,I never got disheartened or felt low.Even though it presented me with many enigmas,I never quit trying,I always kept trying to make logic in the numbers.

This year,came with lots of expectations and faith(as there’s always a chance to start a new journey along a fresh page of life)so I started my voyage by getting a maths tutor for myself.

I don’t have enough  words for this particular man.I mean, not just did he teach me maths but also made me fascinate the subject,even after teaching he would go home-I would keep pondering over it for hours.I remember I once called him out of curiosity for not getting one equation right!

It’s him because of whom I initiated to perceive the language and its numbers and the weirdest signs and formulas.They appeared to look meaningful and mystical,how in the world could minus into minus be equaled to plus?!But it did,and surprisingly it all made so much sense.It looked like a significant mystery,which I had to solve-by hook or by crook.

Everything seemed so much engrossing and piquant;the Geometry was mere Arts with sketching of pyramids and cones,which astoundingly I loved to draw.Algebra was the crossword puzzle which I craved to solve.As if,if I didn’t the world would never count on me again.

The best were the tables and with it the 4 operations,which, with lots of expertise he made me memorize it on my finger tips.Maths was everywhere around me,I couldn’t believe but I had started to dream about it too.

It looked like he had done the hocus-pocus.It was like I was merrily trapped into his sorcery,and I didn’t even mind.In fact in the last few days I counted minutes for his arrival.It was like God had sent me my own personal Maths angel.

I wouldn’t yet say that I hated the subject and then something happened and then,tada!I love it now-that would be such a common cliché,but now that I and most importantly he have faith in me can I say that I have keen interest in Arithmetic.

Also that few days back I came with this conclusion that “Maths is just not numbers and calculations but an extent to how much can our mind take the logical part!”

Now,because of him-I am sure that my mind can bear the logical theories very well and all the praise and cheers is for the one who taught me.I cannot obviously do something like this for him but I can surely thank him humbly and dedicate him this article!:)

When u were saying the day before your final paper that Sir will I do it??!!! And the next day u got your answer which I was already expecting as I did trust u… the formula was simple, I always tried to give u something to take home to think about besides homework. …all credit goes to u and u deserve it was such an unforgettable time spent with both of u, I would only like to say that thanks for behaving like a responsible student, caring friend and naughty sister :-)……will miss this 3 in 1 package 🙂 and yr sorry I didn’t fulfill my promise to b the first one to comment on this article…GOD BLESS YOU…KEEP WRITING…I have become your fan.
