Mathematics and Poetry – What’s the connection?

Mathematics and Poetry – What’s the connection?

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 seashells, sunflower heads, wherein poetry describes their beauty.

How to develop self discipline: Lessons from young Indian athletes at Rio

 

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.

Puffin – The clown of sea

Puffin – The clown of sea

Inspired by the post SALTEE ISLAND: BIG ADVENTURE 2016 by IneseMj and a poem by Poet Rummager

 

A dash of red, orange rosette

A painted bill, matching webbed feet

The swimmer skilfully rides the waves 

In a tuxedo coat, it dives for the fish 

A sea parrot, or a clown of sea? 

The Puffin flies with swift wing beats!!

Have a good night’s sleep with SOFY Bodyfit Overnight

‘Good night sleep tight don’t let the bedbugs bite’

Bedbugs can surely ruin your good night’s sleep; for a woman, so can the unease of getting a night time stain. If you are a woman reading this, then you would know how uncomfortable it is to wake up in the middle of the night, disrupting your cozy sleep, and dash to the bathroom for changing napkin to avoid staining during night hours. This can be particularly troublesome when you are traveling or camping. You may be sleeping flat on your back with little movement, or you may have devised ingenious ways to skirt the issue by using double napkins, towels or tissues, but the trouble doubles if you are prone to rashes or irritation.

So far, in India, the concept of separate packs for day and night usage did not exist.

Then, with the changing lifestyle came SOFY Bodyfit Overnight!

Launched by Unicharm, a market leader in baby and feminine care products in Japan, SOFY Bodyfit Overnight is a napkin meant specially for night usage. To think of it, if people can use separate face cream for day and night, why not use separate napkins for day & night?
