By Somali K Chakrabarti “The mathematician destroyed all the poetry of the rainbow by reducing it to its prismatic colours.” is how Newton was once referred to by noted poets of his time. Poet William Blake had once said, “God is not a Mathematical Diagram“. But a flower surely is! Mathematics defines the shape of spirals and curves of sea shells, sunflower heads, wherein poetry describes their beauty.
In a country where official apathy towards sports-persons has sparked an outcry (at least on social media), the efforts of PV Sindhu, Sakshi Malik and Dipa Karmakar have been lauded by one and all. Each of these gifted athletes have one thing in common – a dogged sense of self discipline. Their passion has fueled their drive to become the best at what they do. And becoming the best at something requires a superlative resolve, determination and self discipline. While for most of us, a work day includes getting up in the morning by about 7 – 8 AM, going to work, eating 3 – 5 meals, working, meeting a few friends, socializing a bit, getting back home and dozing off, these young athletes have stuck to tough regimen for years together, denying themselves even of small pleasures such as having a favorite dish or surrounding themselves with gadgets and accouterments that teenagers take for granted.

By Somali K Chakrabarti What happens when a child is bestowed with incredible talent that tremendously surpasses the ability of others? Chances are that such a child is declared as a prodigy. According to wikipedia, child prodigy refers to a child, who under the age of ten produces meaningful output in some domain to the level of an adult expert performer. Wolfgang Mozart started composing at the age of three. Pablo Picasso is known to draw before he could talk. He made his first oil painting at the age of nine. While some child prodigies grow up to become eminent individuals, not all children who are identified as prodigies grow up to be extraordinary adults. Prodigies may receive a lot of fame and adulation in the childhood, but more than adulation, they need support and resources to realize or surpass the promise shown in the childhood. Many such issues arise in the movie Budhia Singh– Born to run, based on the true story of Budhia Singh, a boy from Odisha, whose name was listed in the Limca book of Records as the world’s youngest marathon runner in the year 2006.
By Somali K Chakrabarti Image Source On a pitch dark night From far, a mechanic spots Speeding buses, disappearing lights. The raging river washes away Chunks of an old river bridge On the highway; He raises an alarm- Next day, the accident, lost lives become a part of the news print. A freak incident – Or may be an audit lapse; A failure to foretell the imminent collapse of a decrepit bridge in heavy rains! Individual valour saved many a lives where a part of the system took a nosedive! © Somali K Chakrabarti
