Dear Reader,
We are well aware of the fact that SQUARING A CIRCLE AND VICE - VERSA (using straightedge and compasses only) is impossible because of the trascendency nature of 'pi'  which was proved by German Mathematician Carl Louise Ferdinand Lindemann in 1882. Even after proving this fact, many mathematicians like Jacob de Gelder, Kochansky,  our Indian mathematical legend, Srinivasa Ramanujan who showed his unmatchable ingenuity, tried to construct a square equal in area to the area of the given circle using different rational convergent of 'pi'. They adopted different modes of processes to arrive at the convergent of their choice and their mode provides little chance to reverse the process so that circle can be constructed from the given square.
Viewing these deficiencies, KASIRAO. JAGATHAPU, a retired headmaster from V.C.B.R.M.Z.P.  High School, Nellore Dist., A.P. after years of struggle, devised a method not only answering the deficiencies but also a simple method that can take to the maximum accuracy one wishes.
Here is the pdf version of the method suggested. Please go through this and in case you want to contact the author, you mail directly write an email at

Srinivasa Ramanujan (22 December 1887 – 26 April 1920) was an Indian mathematician, who made extraordinary contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions. Ramanujan independently compiled nearly 3900 results (mostly identities and equations). His work continues to inspire mathematicians even today! 
Srinivasa Ramanujan, born into a poor Brahmin family at Erode on Dec. 22, 1887, attended school in nearby Kumbakonam. By the time he was 13, he could solve unaided every problem in Loney's Trigonometry, and at 14 he obtained the theorems for the sine and the cosine that had been anticipated by L. Euler.
Ramanujan became so absorbed in mathematics that when he entered the local government college in 1904 with a merit scholarship, he neglected his other subjects and lost the scholarship. Ramanujan married in 1909, and while working as a clerk he continued his mathematical investigations.
In January 1913 Ramanujan sent some of his work to G. H. Hardy, Cayley lecturer in mathematics at Cambridge. Hardy noticed that Ramanujan had rediscovered, and gone far beyond, some of the latest conclusions of Western mathematicians.
In 1914 Ramanujan went to Cambridge. The university experience gave him considerable sophistication, but intuition still played a more important role than argument. In Hardy's opinion, if Ramanujan's gift had been recognized early, he could have become one of the greatest mathematicians of all time. His patience, memory, power of calculation, and intuition made him the greatest formalist of his day.
In 1918 Ramanujan was elected a fellow of the Royal Society and a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge.
However, the story goes that, Ramanujan’s health deteriorated greatly while he was in England, and he eventually had to travel back to India in 1919. He died a year later, when he was only 33 years of age, although his work will be remembered for a long time. He dealt with Riemann series, the elliptic integrals, hyper geometric series, and functional equations of the zeta function. Hardy liked to rank mathematicians on a scale of 1 to 100, and he gave himself 25, Littlewood 30, David Hilbert 80, and Ramanujan 100, which shows just how great Ramanujan was.

Indian-origin mathematician Manjul Bhargava wins Fields Medal

Dear Reader,

Manjul Bhargava, a Canadian mathematician of Indian origin, has been awarded the prestigious 2014 Fields Medal at the International Mathematical Union’s (IMU) International Congress of Mathematicians held in Seoul. Bhargava, 40, is the first person of Indian origin to receive the prestigious medal, which has been awarded since 1936 and recognizes outstanding mathematical achievement for existing work and the “promise of future achievement”. Known to colleagues as a gifted mathematician who would devise new and simple methods to prove centuries-old theorems in number theory, Bhargava’s work has been described by IMU as based both on a deep understanding of the representations of arithmetic groups and a unique blend of algebraic and analytic expertise. Bhargava was awarded the medal “for developing powerful new methods in geometry of numbers, which he applied to count rings of small rank and to bound the average rank of elliptic curves”, IMU said. One of Bhargava’s most prominent discoveries was a thesis that threw a new light on Gauss’s Law for the composition of two binary quadratic forms. When Bhargava was a graduate student, he read Disquisitiones Arithmeticae, where Gauss developed his composition law which gives a method for composing two binary quadratic forms to obtain a third one. According to IMU’s description of his work, Bhargava one day came up with the idea that if he cut off the Rubik’s mini-cube into half and labelled each corner of the cube with two sets of numbers, that would lead to a cubic analogue of the Gauss Composition. After being cut, a Rubic’s mini-cube could generate three quadratic forms. From the three ways of slicing the cube, three binary forms emerged, and so Bhargava had discovered a simple way to prove the law. “It’s all about contributing to the understanding of ourselves and the world around us. One of the keys to understanding mathematical problems that people have been thinking about for years is to think about them in a totally different way,” said Bhargava in an interview with Simons Foundation and IMU. He went on to discover 12 other analogues of Gauss compositions over the years. He received his Ph.D in 2001 from Princeton University for a thesis that has been described as “stunning” and a “breakthrough”. It generalized the classical Gauss composition law for quadratic forms to many other situations, according to the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research. By 2003, Bhargava had become a professor at Princeton . Born in 1974 in Canada, Manjul Bhargava grew up in the US and often visited Jaipur to stay with his grandparents. His grandfather was a professor in Sanskrit from whom Bhargava learnt Sanskrit poetry, while his mother was a mathematics professor who allowed Bhargava to attend her college-level classes as a child, according to interviews. “He is an extremely original mathematician, who has developed a style which is distinctly his own,” said Benedict Gross, professor of mathematics at Harvard University, who has known Bhargava since his days as a Harvard undergraduate. “His method—combining the arithmetic interpretation of integral orbits with their enumeration, using the geometry of numbers—has led to the solution of a large number of problems in number theory. I think his mathematical work is tremendously important, and has changed the face of the subject,” added Gross, who himself is a renowned mathematician for his work on the Gross-Zagier Theorem that won him the Cole Prize along with his collaborators. Bhargava has also collaborated with mathematicians to increase the understanding of elliptic curves, which are one of the fundamental objects in number theory with applications in the fields of cryptography and data security. Describing the uniqueness of his work, Gross said, “He obtains results ‘on average’ that we can’t obtain in individual cases. For example, for a cubic equation (an elliptic curve), it is quite difficult to determine the size of the group of rational solutions. Bhargava determines an upper bound on the average size, over all cubic equations with rational coefficients.” Bhargava is an accomplished tabla player, having trained under Ustad Zakir Hussain, one of the greatest exponents of the percussion instrument. He is also an impressive and lucid orator. “He is a very kind person, who shares his ideas freely with others. He is also a talented tabla player, who loves music and other arts,” said Gross. Peter Sarnak, professor in the department of mathematics at Princeton University, said, “Bhargava has developed fundamental new tools geometric and diophantine, to count objects in algebraic number theory, that before his work seemed hopeless. His work reminds me of the great German mathematician Hermann Minkowski’s work in number theory: it is brilliant, clear and beautiful and has reshaped the landscape.” Three others received the Fields medal—Maryam Mirzakhani, the first Iranian and the first woman to be awarded the medal; Artur Avila, the first Brazilian to be awarded, and Martin Hairer, the first Austrian to win the medal. Subhash Khot, an Indian-origin scientist from New York University, was awarded the Nevanlinna Prize in Seoul for his prescient definition of the “Unique Games” problem, and his efforts to understand its role in the study of efficient approximation of optimization problems, which have produced breakthroughs in algorithmic design and approximation hardness, according to ICM.

Do you know what’s special about today, 22 July?

Dear Reader,

Well, today is Pi Approximation Day.
Pi Approximation Day celebrates the mathematical constant π (pi). It is observed on July 22, due to π being roughly equal to 22/7.
The fractional approximation of π ,22⁄7, resembles the date July 22 in the day/month format, where it is written 22/7. Pi Approximation Day is therefore celebrated on July 22.
In geometry, pi is defined as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. July 22, often written as 22/7, is an appropriate day to explore pi, since 22 divided by 7 is an approximation of pi.
Pi Approximation Day is celebrated in a number of ways, including contests to memorize pi to the most decimal places, solving math problems involving pi, discovering the history of pi, ruminating on how life would be different without pi and—of course—eating pie.
So, enjoy this mathematical day ...

Dear All

I am delighted to share with you all that I was invited by Sainik School,Tilaiya, Jharkhand to conduct a three days workshop for teachers from all the 24 Sainik Schools across the country. 
In those three days I along with another Math’s expert Mrs. Shuchi Goyal discussed Mathematics beyond Curriculum, Problem Solving, Model Making, and various Hands-on-activities etc.
It was really a fun-filled great learning and sharing experience. All the participants enjoyed the sessions and took part in each activity enthusiastically. It is obvious that if teachers of any age or many years experience can enjoy this Mathematics, I am certain the students will also enjoy the same with more zeal and enthusiasm. The only pre-requisite condition is that as a Mathematics teacher we are passionate learner, flexible, ready to change for betterment and have will and desire to do best for the students.
It is hoped that all the teachers who attended these sessions are now ready to create fun based mathematical classroom where no student is phobic towards Mathematics.
As promised during the sessions I am providing the photographs of all the sessions day-wise.


Happy Learning!
