Today (June 26th, 2015) I went to see one of my favorite teachers — Prof. Gilbert Strang.
One day in 2009, while I was watching his Linear Algebra video lectures (http://ocw.mit.edu/…/math…/18-06-linear-algebra-spring-2010/) in a quiet corner of my room, I started to realize an extraordinary beauty was slowly unfolding in front of me. I felt a deep gratitude for this person who introduced me to this beauty. That day I promised, someday, I will see him face-to-face and say “Thank You”. That is exactly what I have done today. This was on my Bucket list for quite some time and now it is checked.
Here is a picture of me with Prof. Strang.
