Oh, I really like your blog. I especially like your photos. For instance, the one with many colored pills and a thermometer on a paper with certain integrals in the background was very interesting. The distinct "+C" there somehow reminded me of this good math joke.

Two mathematicians have opposite viewpoints on a layman's knowledge of mathematics. The one who argued that an average person has a decent knowledge of math plans to prove that in front of the other, and asks a salesgirl to answer "x^2/2" when he asks a question to her in front of his friend. She agrees. A bit later, this time with his friend, this guy asks her what the integral of x is. And she replies "x^2/2", and a few seconds later: "plus a constant"! Have you heard this before?

Btw, I guess most of us think not very highly about our own stuff. I often used to think that what others write or do look much better. But these days I try to convince myself that that needn't actually be the case!

Well the photograph was suppose to be symbollic . I had this engineering mathematics paper ..I thought all those things would help me through it
