Kether and Non Euclidian Geometry!

Pictures above were all clicked by me. Edited: All of the pictures above were clicked by me.

Euclid’s Geometry is as much of bullshit as Non-Euclidian geometry. Poetic and imaginary exercises make world go round.

Text books for students in class ninth contain statements like:

Now it’s widely accepted that non euclidian geometry holds your cup of coffee because it endorses spherical world view.

It’s better to listen to Prateek Joseph’s song “Ande ka fanda…”

Zero was given by my Bharat.

Bharat Kumar with his hand on his pondering face…truly philosophical.

If a disclaimer is put on every text book:

“You’re going to read a work of fiction.”

Who’s going to beat kids in school?

How are proctors and invigilators going to harrass them?

How would education and exams boards accumulate money for conducting exams. Anxiety for suicides without providing an option for euthanasia and who would spend time on marksheets and revaluation?

{ As an aside: don’t forget to visit the nearest library which has Sarvo DAYA literature : they would tell you why Vinoba burnt all his marksheets and gained land for masses by begging on behalf of downtrodden people.}

But is it possible? Aren’t we speaking about Maya/Matrix? Patric’s Paya? Iron. Fuller. Carbon dioxide Miller. Copper. etc.

No.

We are speaking about mathematics.

Point. Line. Line segments. Planes which have their edges as lines.

Bindu. Ind.

Since passport was found intact:

The address written behind is strange:

3/57 Phase-2, Chhatarasal Nagar, J. K. ROAK, BHOPAL

There’s no J. K. ROAK in Bhopal unless passport office was actually joaking with YOU!

Vivarium. Another nightingale. Passport office people are supposed to be smart.

Good News?

Chhatarpur edition of Hindi daily reports drastic reduction in market rates of vegetables!
Improvisation? No. The ward has serious issues.

Only student under my tutelage has been working on Maths, Hindi and English.

His handwriting is improving.

Key difficulty areas are:

Alphabets: He can’t write English alphabet. Believe it or not. Confuses ‘d’ with ‘b’. He’s 14 years old. Studying in standard 9th. Hindi medium.

Maths: Can’t do maths because can’t read Hindi. Questions are in Hindi. If you feel downhearted as soon as you start reading– chances are : you can’t grasp the problem and can’t solve it either.

Take a recent example: he was given an assignment to work out fourth, fifth and sixth questions from the first questionnaire of chapter fifth: Introduction to Euclid’s Geometry. He wasn’t able to identify if the solution was available in the guide. It was an open book test/assignment.

Reason: can’t differentiate between headings and sub-headings. Can’t differentiate between questions and subsections given in roman numerals.

Help: I offer my assistance. I work hard with students only to find parents and guardians who ask me to use corporeal punishment instead of getting to the core of the problems.

I am charging five hundred rupees per month for maths and English for home tuition because their economic situation is not very sound. The child needs constant reminders to work, to be punctual. He’s often sleepy because four to five hours per day are spent in supporting the fast food corner where he works with his elder brother.

My assessment: after having spent twenty days with this student: I feel he needs more time to study. Instead he seems compelled to work in his family business to support his family. Though he’s studying in standard ninth in a Hindi medium school: his reading and writing abilities indicate that he’s supposed to be in standard fourth or fifth at most.

For the last three to four years he didn’t attend school because of Covid. No online education either. Now having gotten general promotions through standards in school he’s like other average kids with learning disadvantages simply because Covid is not recognised by syllabus designers.

This kid is going to pass all exams until higher secondary because of goodwill and then work either through sports quota or as a chef to earn his living. This is how it works here in third world countries.

FYI: he makes more money than I do every day, every month, every year if you compare last ten years of earnings simply because I have mostly been unemployed in the last decade.
