booklover has a baby


You planted
the fear in your head
You water it with thoughts of other people
that you don’t even know exist

It then grows branches that reach your heart
which beats and beats faster
You try to stop them from sprouting
But the fear
gets nourished
with the words
never uttered.

Speaking Mathematics


The way we learn has changed drastically over the last decade or so. I consider myself fortunate for having access to so much high quality learning material with very little effort.  I am a physicist by training but have been teaching Mathematics to engineers for quite sometime now. There are many lines of thought on how Math should be taught to engineers. Three main views are

(1) Teach in the usual lecture, problem solving style with a lot of emphasis on concepts, rigor and formal methods.

(2) Classroom teaching in an intuitive manner with lots of games and real life examples involved.

(3) Teach Math hands-on while students work in the lab on real life projects.

Fit by 50: My journey to lose 50 pounds in 50 weeks by age 50

The Purple Almond

Exactly two weeks ago today, I turned 49 years old. Exactly 50 weeks from now, I’ll turn 50 years old. YIKES! I’m almost 50 years old, and 50 pounds heavier than I’d like to be. So, I decided this is the perfect time to lose the weight, once and for all. I’ve tried before. In fact earlier this year, I took a three month leave of absence from school and blogging to refocus and lose weight. During that time, it was my goal to lose 30 pounds in 3 months. I was an abject failure, as you can see from THIS POST.

However, as I stated in that post, after watching an inspiring conference my son attended, I learned that every successful person fails their way to the top. It was the theme of the event. This was very inspiring for me to hear that the only way…
