Random thoughts, Orderly numbers

Heard of Fistful of Dollars? Or for a few Dollars More? Yes, the question is with the word ‘heard’.
Heard of Ennio Morricone? That’s the man who gave us those haunting tunes. Remember The Good, the Bad and the Ugly? My personal favourite among Morricone’s composition is Gabriel’s Oboe for the movie the Mission, produced by David Putnam (of the Chariots of Fire and the Odessa files fame). Take a listen when you can.

Only a few months back,  I watched a play on our famous mathematician Ramanujan and enjoyed the personal side of the man in his relationship with GH Hardy, his host in Britain, and intellectual sparring partner. (
If I had a recommendation for those captivated by algorithm and computing, there is the work of Alan Turing. Did you know Turing may’ve saved a few million lives in just a few years of WW-II, without touching a gun or sword?

Catch much in the highly acclaimed movie the Imitation Game featuring Benedict C. Some impressive figures to match up on the movie?
