Many readers of this humble blog are aware that I am associated with the Kumari L A Meera Memorial Trust. The Trust organizes one annual lecture in Meera's memory and started another series in memory of the founder, Meera's father Mr. L. K. Ananthakrishnan. Typically this lecture has not been in Bangalore. However, the 8th lecture will take place in Bangalore, and will be at the Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium. Thanks are due to the kindness of the Director, my friend Chandrakant Shukre for so kindly agreeing to host it. The lecture will take place on Saturday, March 29, 2008, at 6 pm, and will be delivered by Prof. Alladi Sitaram on "Harish-Chandra: A Mathematician's Mathematician". (Of course my friends know that among other things, I am Sitaram's cousin.) Notice is hereby served all readers of this humble blog. Please make a note and attend. Coffee and snacks will follow the lecture.
Update as of March 30, 2008: The lecture has been conducted and was well attended. The pdf file of the lecture booklet is now available online at the website of the Trust, under activities.
