For the FIRST TIME in HISTORY of INDIA, NAGPURian & ICADian Pranjal Warade has bagged the Bronze Medal at “European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad”, concluded recently at Minsk, Belarus.
This Olympiad has been conducted since last three years and India participated in the said Olympiad for the first time. In its maiden participation Ms. Pranjal has made India in general and Nagpur in particular feel proud with her rare feat. Over 109 Participants from 30 countries were selected for the final round at Minsk, Belarus. Ms. Pranjal is being trained under Team ICAD and ICAD advisor and veteran Mathematician of city, Dr. Anil Kayande.
It may be noted that India was supposed to send a squad of 4 contestants & 3 other members to assist them. But, the selection criterion was so tough that India could participate with only 2 contestants. ICADian Pranjal Warade of Nagpur was one of them along with a Pune girl Ragini Patki.
Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) under the aegis of the National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) selects the students from all over the country for Indian National Mathematical Olympiad & International Mathematical Olympiad. NBHM is funded by the Department of Atomic Energy, of Government of India finances the Mathematical Olympiad Cell (MO Cell) and also arranges money for the IMO Training Camp and India’s participation in the International Mathematical Olympiad.
ICAD Founder, Sarang Upganlawar and Director Academics Dr. Dilip Vaidya, have congratulated Pranjal for her outstanding achievement. She has to attend a training camp of Indian National Mathematics Olympiad, when she comes back to India and immediately after the camp she has to appear for her JEE-ADVANCED examination. Team ICAD wishes her all the best in forthcoming challenges and we are sure that she will excel.
From Nagpur, in last two years, only the ICADians have been privileged to represent our country at International level. Last year Master Rupanshu Ganvir had bagged Silver Medal for India in International Physics Olympiad and Master Anuj Apte is going to represent India consecutively for the 2nd year in Asian Physics Olympiad.
