NATIONAL MATHEMATICS DAY 2021 – MATHEMATICS : FRIEND OR FOE?
Srinivasa Ramanujan is the legendary Indian mathematician, who was born on December 22, 1887. Every year from 2012, we have been celebrating this day as National Mathematics Day to honour him and to emphasize the importance of Mathematics.
In New Horizon Gurukul, we celebrated this day in various ways. The school lobby was decorated with a banner. There was a photo booth made with the theme of the Taxi Cab Number 1729, famously known as Ramanujan Number. The magic square created by Ramanujan was also displayed for the students.
The morning assembly included a short speech on Ramanujan. The students depicted how they view Mathematics as a subject through a dance. First part of the dance featured the fear and dislike for the subject, while the latter part gave instances of how the subject can be related to our day-to-day life. Another group of students portrayed what will happen to our lives in the absence of Mathematics through a Nukkad Natak.
Every human being has his strengths and weaknesses. Our life can be made worthwhile by focussing on our strengths rather than worrying over the weaknesses we have. Ramanujan conveys this message through his life.
