  Manjil and PankajLet's pursue this effort  - publication of  a book on mathematics essays in Assamese.More and more youths in our state remain unaware of the beauty of  mother tongue and literature.  Someone has to act and this may be a sincere beginning.
I am also postive that there will be support once the first step is made.
ThanksAnkur da

     Dear Ankur Da,

Yes, indeed the article is really good. We (me and Pankaj Mahanta) have been planning for a long time to write a book with ten essays on mathematics and mathematicians in Assamese. Somehow the project has not gone very far ahead. We have three essays so far only.

With regards,

     Thanks Manjil  for theposting .The article by Pankaj is superb – I was thoroughly captivatedby the narration. Although the topic is mathematics, his deft use of Assamesewords is clear enough to be easily comprehensible to the intended audience.  Fermat'sLast Theorem has captivated the world for last four hundred years partlybecause of its deceptive simplicity.Sir Andrew Wilessolution to the Theorem is certainly one of the most supreme humanintellectual achievements. However, Andrew Wiles proof  is based on complex mathematical fields,  while thereare still many believer’s in  Fermat’sthose enigmatic words inthe form of a note scribbled in the margin of  a text book“I have discovered a truly remarkable proof which this margin is too small to contain.”I amsharing the Pankaj article link below.অশ্ৰুসিক্ত এন্ড্ৰু ৱাইলছ মূক হৈ ৰোৱা মুহূৰ্তটো - Gonit Sora: Assamese

     Dear all,

Recently Sir Andrew Wiles was awarded the 2016 Abel Prize in mathematics, a prize equal in stature with the Nobel prizes. Sir Wiles was awarded this prize for his remarkable achievement of proving Fermat's Last Theorem in 1993-94. Fermat's Last Theorem deals with something called diophantine equations in mathematics and had eluded scores of brilliant mathematicians for close to 360 years until Sir Wiles proved the result in a herculean effort spanning 7 years and over 100 journal pages. This is in my opinion one of the most supreme human intellectual achievements.

Pankaj Jyoti Mahanta has written the most wonderful popular math article that I have ever read, about this saga. The article can be read in its entirety here http://as.gonitsora.com/andrew-wiles-fermats-last-theorem/. It is also appearing as a two part article in Niyomiya Barta. I would urge the members to share this article with young students, so that they can be motivated from the example of Sir Wiles.
