After a long time, I'm reading a racy thriller...there's never a dull moment in this taut and intense narrative. I will book my copy the moment 'Brutal' gets published. Well done, and congrats on the selection for publication!

Sheshagiri K.M > Surendra Mohanty

Dear Surendra,Thnk you for taking time out to read the first few chapters of my book 'The gentle man who taught infinity.' Regarding the usage of the term 'infinity', I must say that I have used it only metaphorically. This is NOT a book on how infinity was taught. In a literal sense, we also discussed the fascinating notion of infinity in mathematics, and this set me thinking as well. These discussions come later in the book. As I have explained in the foreword, the term is used to indicate that Channakeshava's teaching opened us up to the infinite vistas of mathematical enquiry and learning. It is in this sense that infinity is used. Regarding the foreword being too lengthy, I agree. The way this website breaks up the text from a page into smaller pages, even a two or three page chapter appears long! But I will take your suggestion and review the foreword. Lastly, the issue of calling my father by name -- I respect your sentiments on this one, but dad is absolutely fine with the way I have referred to him. I'm aware that this might affect people's sensibilities, but I'm prepared to live with that! I'm not sure where this book will go from here, jostling as it is with mostly works of fiction which are perhaps easier to read. Still, let us wait and see what happens. Let me again thank you for your time and effort...

Hey Sudhansu...Thanks a ton for your very, very generous comments on my first attempt at writing a book! Your comments, along with those of a few others who have taken the time out to read the first few chapters, have left me very encouraged that there are those who still do not mind reading a work on non-fiction. I thought this tribe was slowly dwindling! Well, I do hope the book gets published, for this will spread the joys of learning mathematics to a much larger number of parents, teachers and children. Regards,,,Giri

As I flipped the pages, I could sense much effort on the part of the author...the nuances have been captured quite well, just as a young couple enters marital life. I wish there were more conversations, though. That would have made it more engaging and intense. Also the grammatical errors in a few places were irritating. I wonder what happens next...all the best, Deepak!

Thank you for your kind review. I absolutely LOVE your book. I do hope it gets published. I would love to read all of it. I would make my son read it as well. All the very best.

I liked all the three stories and look forward to reading more! The first two especially kept me turning the pages fast, while the third, though short, was pretty much predictable. Niyati uses simple language to evoke reflection and a wide range of emotions with these short stories. But I must say I came away feeling that the human psyche could have been explored more deeply...

Thank you so much Mr. Sheshagiri for your generous rating and honest review. Will work on exploring the human psyche, maybe it will add more character to my stories :-) Thank you for the suggestion....

Interesting reviews of my book 'The gentle man who taught infinity'! A big thanks to all those who took the time out and patiently went through the first three chapters of a book that is about a subject that many dread -- mathematics!
