  1. Congratulation on your new company, on finding big customers right away and doing more! Wish you greater successes. And yes, you have been quieter on twitter. As much as I enjoy your tweets, that is such a waste of time :). Wow, tenth grade, so that is something. Wish luck to your daughter as well. And I like the way you’ve linked theorems taken for granted to belief in God. Well, you already know my views on the subject. It is not God we have a problem with, it is religion, chores and rituals and them being looked at as the only way to reach HIM/HER that I see as a problem.

  3. Congratulations and wish you all the best!!!!
    That was a thought provoking parallel .. I really hope we all walk in the right direction so that our faith does evolve into knowing the truth. Yes, we all will inevitably get there some day but how much we stumble and move around in circles is based on how consciously and thoughtfully we live.

  4. Hi

    I’ve been a regular reader and fan of yours blog for a long time.

    It’s great to know that you are spending quality time with your daughter.

    I just wanted to say that, I am also a student who is studying in tenth grade this year. And I just felt like saying incidentally in our book we do have the proof of the Pythagoras theorem. My Dad also helps me in my studies like you do. 🙂

    Good luck and all the best.

  5. Thanks Rachna for your wishes! Couldn’t agree more with your statement that rituals are given far more importance than they probably deserve. The essence is missed out in the process, which should move us forward than to bind us to an inflexible structure.

  6. Thanks for your wishes, Aarthy. I like how you’re able to capture the essence of a post in a couple of sentences. Faith is a pretty powerful force. We cannot afford to lose faith in the concept of faith itself.

  7. Hi Arpan, I’m super thrilled to read your comment. And it’s a huge honor to have someone as young as yourself reading the blog and being a fan. Many thanks for writing back. I’ve now been told repeatedly by a few friends and others who have emailed me to say the proof for Pythagoras theorem is taught in schools. I stand corrected. If you can send me a link (if available) to the CBSE proof, that would be great. It’s awesome to hear that your dad and you work on your studies together! Please convey my regards to him. And please do keep reading (and let me know when I say something that’s erroneous). Thanks for your wishes! God bless you.

  9. Sorry to inform you, actually my board is not CBSE. My board is our regional state board: Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE). So, none of our study material is available online. Therefore, I don’t have a link unfortunately.

    But you are right about the fact that we were introduced the theorem back in Class VIII and the proof is given only now in Class X.

    I am actually a regular reader of unreal times. I had first seen your posts there many months back. And since then I’ve loved most of what I’ve read of your posts. I will definitely let you know my opinion on your future writings. Thanks for your wishes.
