Yes guys, it’s mathematics
Of which we don’t even know the basics
Better it is to stare at hot guys and chicks
Than to study books as heavy as bricks...
Sometimes I sit down and wonder why did I opt for math (hons); or, why did any of us opt for it? Well, when math was a nightmare for most of my friends in Class XII, it worked as a stress buster for me. And I guess busting my stress is all I did in my preparatory leaves – since I managed a score above 95 only in math!
One thing that fascinates me about math is that it is present everywhere. Just look around and trust me, you don’t actually need a mathematician’s eyes for that.
In your room’s ceilings
Or your balcony’s railings
Even your texting or mailings
And yes, even in your feelings…
I guess math should have been born with the tagline “wherever you go, I follow”… because that is what it actually does. There is math even in the reading that you are doing this very second. It’s your poor heart working on the innumerable calculations to make this black print readable!
Though my love affair with math has hit the rocks at graduation level, due to the big difficulty leap forward, there is still hope that it may come back in my glory sometime soon.
I’m feeling like the immortal grandma in Ekta Kapoor’s serials, who remains of the same size and shape while other characters take a time leap of 10 years.
I shall overcome... some day.
