Many people ask us, what is this YES!+ all about, can you give us a glimpse of it?
So here is a trailer:-
Venue:- Jayaram Seva Mandali, Jayanagar
Come along with friends and family, we will have great time with Bawa, learn new things, do some yoga and pranayama, meditate, and we will also do some energizing and relaxing chanting.
We had a great time with Bawa in the Mathemagic workshop yesterday in BIT College. He has this zeel to teach which makes even a subject like Mathematics so exciting! We had a tour in Algebra – simplifying it, Geometry – visualising it, Graph theory – how a practical problem can be phrased in simple mathematical terms, Calculus- demystifying it, Topology – how simple things can be totally counter-intuitive, and Number theory – the easy to understand problems don’t necessarily have trivial solutions, and much more!
We were studying mathematics for more than two hours, and didn’t feel it was that long!
Apart from Maths, Bawa also told stories about mathematicians and the world around them at that time. How the great library at Alexandria was burnt down and then shifted sources at Egypt also got destroyed and this crime against humanity set back the progress of human society a thousand years behind, starting a dark age of ignorance. How shy was Fermat, the story of Pythagorus, ancient Indian mathematician who discovered the Pythagorus theorem much before him, the story of why there is no nobel prize in maths!
Most importantly, Bawa gave that enthusiasm to learn new things, study the subject with all drive. 🙂
Check out the wonderful articles and photos by Srikanth and Santosh. WAYE to go! Cheers!
