Re: Let us welcome Alokasarkar S.

Sorry it was muddled.

step (ii) You tell her how sorry you are to have upset her so much and .......

...........  step (iii) and suggest the following way to prevent a recurrance:

you see her a lot more often, spend hours getting to know what might upset her and what won't; then you won't make the same mistake again.   smile

Is that her avatar or is it what she actually looks like?

Hard to tell if she likes maths.  But I conclude that she likes you.

If I was your age I know which would make me happier.    smile

I suggest you remove the image so the whole world cannot see it.

Re: Let us welcome Alokasarkar S.

That's not her photograph. That's just a singer in our country (called "Shreya Ghosal") whom Aloka likes a lot. But Alokananda looks a lot more nice than "Shreya Ghosal"(i believe).

Thank You for your advice

Re: Let us welcome Alokasarkar S.

You're welcome.  Your comment doesn't change mine one bit.  You are indeed a gentleman!

But rermove the pics anyway ... There's too much that should be private there.

I looked at the puzzle.  There is a quick way to do it.

Re: Let us welcome Alokasarkar S.

The quick way is given there
That is why I wanted to show it to her

Re: Let us welcome Alokasarkar S.

So it is.  I skimmed too quickly and missed that bit.

Re: Let us welcome Alokasarkar S.

I removed the pictures
From another chat record it appears to me that she also doesn't like books.
Should I conclude that way?

Re: Let us welcome Alokasarkar S.

step (iii) variant: you see her a lot more often, spend hours getting to know her.

To be honest, I cannot answer these questions.  Girls are not like maths.  The rules are different and may sometimes not exist.

I have to go now.  Good luck!  smile

Re: Let us welcome Alokasarkar S.

I am reading the book which you suggested, now. It appears that it will help!

Re: Let us welcome Alokasarkar S.

No don't do that.  But do tell her you are reading it and, if she asks, tell her what it is about.  If she does, she may then choose to read it too.  important thing is: it's her choice.

Re: Let us welcome Alokasarkar S.

Alokananda seems not much interested in our forum and even maths.
sad
That is why she doesn't visit this website often

However, she was the only person who responded to my request of Signing Up
She is the best, I must agree

Soon she will be posting zillions of math questions.

Or answering them.

Hmmm. Why would she be answering her own questions?

Knew a fellow like that. He would post and then answer it! Did it in his speech too. People did not like it and armed with abalone shells they chased him.

He climbed that tree and was never seen again.


So, Alokasarkar S. if you read this I say post a question and then answer someone else's.

This is the only Banyan tree I can remember bobbym posted of

Re: Let us welcome Alokasarkar S.

Check the under the fig tree thread.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
