A highlight today

My maths professor went off on a tangent (no pun intended) about his first language today: Malayalam. I had assumed it would be Urdu or Punjabi -which came up and he acknowledged. He’s Indian and I figured he knew Hindi – which he does. Apparently, while it is the national language, different regions tend to be relatively linguistically segregated. He explained that most Indians must speak English to each other in the US. But being a good Muslim, he also knows Arabic. A polyglot and a Mathematics PhD. Very impressive.

He wrote some examples and it was really much more interesting than trigonomic functions. After he got back to math, I dozed off.

Anyway, it was neat.
