All this in a single life span of only 39 years!!!

I was totally humbled and felt too insignificant yesterday, because I too turned 39…and I don’t even have a disease or mental disorder named after me (though chances of that happening are much brighter than having a theorem or mathematical identity named after me).

It also motivated me to do something worthwhile in my own capacity in this “bonus” life, starting today…
