No, I am not talking about Eric Clapton’s song or Jeffery Archer’s senti short story.
I am refering to Number Theory, a subject which I have liked and aced since my high school upto my engineering. We had Number Theory and Cryptography as an elective and it was one of the most challenging papers I have written till date. And the most interesting one too.
But sadly for the past two years, I have been out of touch.
So, this friday when I was at Sapna book house , and I couldn’t help noticing this book.
Bought it off and am going through the book now. Brings back the sweet old memories of the well-lit room in the 8th Block hostel room, with Shuaib crumpled on the bed going through the faded xerox material, Vaiju on the floor, me on the table and Madhu on the other bed, all of us trying to solve some assignment problem on primitive roots. And the excitement when one of us found a solution or even understood a complicated theorem. And the pride in explaining how the thing works!
Ah, well! Those were the days 🙂
