Mathemagical 2014  An Indian Perspective
Abstract
Mathematics is probably the only subject that can be classified both as art as well as science  former, because it is not constrained by the real world and latter because it is a logical system with precisely defined rules as well as primitives that lead to unambiguous nontrivial theorems. Indian (and of Indian origin) mathematicians have continued to do seminal work till present times, culminating in Manjul Bhargava receiving the Fields Medal last year. In such fabulous times, a nonmathematician ponders about the nature of mathematics, and revisits the question: why are fundamental laws of Nature inherently mathematical?
