"Mathematics as Culture: the Indian Experience"
at CSVSMuseum / Mumbai by PP Divakaran of TIFR
The lecture will present a wide-angle view of the long and vigorous history of mathematical thought in India, from the Harappan civilisation to the time of its decline and disappearance from its last stronghold in Kerala, around 1600 CE. The primary focus will be on the place mathematical literacy had in the Indian life of the mind, as seen in its symbiosis with other creative and intellectual concerns such as architecture and the decorative arts, rites and rituals, language and grammar, logic and philosophy, etc.
Wish I could have attended this one!

Things are moving ahead in July with a field visit coming up.
In the past few months, the small community of participants celebrated 2 births and one of the teacher-elders had some health issues.
Living life as it comes, we will move ahead slowly on the Astitva project, navigating these important life events.
Will have more to report in the August news.
