I was pleased to see that Friday's Economic Times profiled Anand Bora and his mathematical art. Since the time I met him in March 2007, this young man has gone places: he has had his art exhibited at Bridges-2008, a conference dedicated to Mathematical Connections in Art, Music and Science. [Check out his blog where he describes his experience at Bridges-2008].
I think this is a good time to wish Anand (once again) all the best in his artistic journey.

A minor aside: In the ET article, Anand has been too kind in calling me a 'guiding force'. While I feel very nice at being acknowledged this way, I was also amused that he placed me in the wrong department at IISc: Mathematics!
