Abstract: This presentation reflects on the work of Dr. Bal Chandra Luitel from the University of Katmandu and is a tribute to India as a mathematics land. Between Jantar Mantar, Rangoli and Ramnujan India connected eloquently her style in mathematics to philosophy and religious culture; Advaita, Vedanta and Zen. The presentation shall draw on a few presentation of Bal Chandra in the week following the dramatic earthquake in Nepal and will raise a few questions connecting Goa with the 20th century.
