Purna Chandra Das : A Prosaic Ode to his Exceptional Life

The author of this article is Debanshu Ratha, former Integrated MSc (Mathematics) student of NISER.

Prof. Purna Chandra Das was fondly remembered among us students as PC Das sir. A very simple and straight human being, as transparent as it can get. His life put in perspective is an inspiring one, and sends a message to everyone who feels low or down due to circumstances to rise above one’s hardships. From a humble beginning in rural Odisha to becoming a household name as a mathematical genius is no fairy tale. Just hard work, perseverance and discipline. That was his mantra, which he shared with his students time and again. His thirst for learning continued late into his ripe old age, even being an embodiment of knowledge, arrogance never clouded his vision. His thirst for knowledge continued, he kept reading, listening to talks, asking questions never stopped even in student seminars.
