Bondas, Medu Vadas and Poincare Conjecture :)

Hindu has an interesting article on the Poincare Conjecture written by T. Jayaraman and R. Ramachandran totally adapted to desis. A two dimensional sphere is a bonda, a doughnut is a medu vada, a surface with two holes is two meduvadas glued while frying.

Nice article and funny sometimes, especially if you are not used to bondas and vadas. T. Jayaraman is a faculty at IMSC and R. Ramachandran is a science writer for Frontline (I think).
