Abhinav Yadav works in the field of neurology. One of his poem was inspired by two different kinds of people in Atacama desert, Chile. One of them are astronomers doing research to uncover mystery of galaxies. Another are the old women, who are searching for the remains of their beloved ones, thrown into desert during the dictatorship days. His poem through the eyes of science beautifully captured these 2 lives beautifully in his poem.

At the end of the event, Atul Jain mesmerized all of us with his on the spot developed poem. Abhishek Jain taught us tan3A in very beautiful way. Overall the event was very successful and each one of us were delighted to see Mathematics in so many different colors.
