Passion for maths keeps him going

Madanlal Baldevraj GhaiHe is on a mission to debunk the belief that Mathematics is a tough subject, and to instil the confidence among students that it is nothing, but a combination of alphabets, consonants and vowels. The mission is laudable more so for the fact that the man behind it is 70-year-old.

Madanlal Baldevraj Ghai, a retired professor and an ex-army man, who has embarked on his third and final national tour to spread awareness as a subject among students is not tired of talking about math and its various uses in daily life.

“Last year was celebrated as the ‘National Mathematics Year’, and this year was declared as the ‘International Year for Mathematics’. No one is talking about it, so I decided to make it known, and set out once again,” said Mr. Ghai, who is from Punjab.

His love for the subject is so great that the septuagenarian is still a student, pursuing his Ph.D. in mathematics from Punjab University in Patiala. His 50-day tour, which began on November 24, will cover the five States of Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, and West Bengal.

Having visited Osmania University’s mathematics department last week in the city, Mr. Ghai’s plan is simple; visit whichever educational comes in the way, and speak to students to drive away the fear factor, which is prevalent for unnecessary reasons. “We use it in our everyday life, and even in other subjects like physics, geography and even English, which is nothing but a combination of alphabets, consonants an vowels,” he explained, and added that the negative notion about math exists because children are made to feel that way by parents. “Children should not go to tuitions for mathematics, and it must be self-taught, so that they start liking the subject, which is noting, but a combination of calculation, measurement and analysis,” quipped Ghai.
