Weekly Photo Challenge- BRIDGE

What connects the world?

People.

What connects people?

Shared interests.

My school organised a 5-day long International Mathematics Contest- International Young Mathematicians’ Convention.

This mega convergence brought over 550 children together from over 19 countries and bonded them together in a thread of shared passion-Mathematics.

IYMC was not about winning or losing; for whether one wins or loses, one thing is surely gained- Experience.

The event- INTERNATIONAL YOUNG MATHEMATICIANS’ CONVENTION- acted as the BRIDGE between 19 countries and brought them closer together.

PARTICIPANTS TAKING THEIR EXAM

Every participant left as better versions of themselves.

In the words of John Lennon

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Some feelings are better experienced than told; and IYMC was definitely one such feeling!

ABSENT-MINDEDNESS

Question-

What is absent-mindedness?
Answer-

Once my class-teacher asked me to take the attendance of the class and mark it in the register.

Immensely proud of the fact that the teacher chose me for such an important(Yeah! Important!) work out of a class of 40 students, I held a RED pen in one hand and the register in another, stood facing the class condescendingly and blurted, ” Who all are absent? Raise your hands.”

Oblivious as I was, it took me a while to realize what wrong had I said that made the class go hysterical!
