Guiding Force: A Dedicated Mentorship

The Indian team’s success can be attributed to the unwavering guidance and support provided by the esteemed mentors, Sahil Mhaskar (Head), Ms. Aditi Muthkhode (Deputy Head), and Ms. Ananya Ranade (Supervisor) from the Chennai Mathematical Institute. Their mentorship has been instrumental in shaping the team’s exceptional performance.

A Remarkable Milestone

This achievement marks the second time in India’s EGMO journey, which began in 2015, that all four participants have secured medals at the prestigious competition. This feat not only celebrates the individual brilliance of the participants but also highlights India’s growing stature in the global mathematical arena.

Nurturing Excellence: TIFR-HBCSE’s Pivotal Role

The Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) – Homi Bhabha Center for Science Education (HBCSE) serves as India’s nodal center for Olympiad programs in various disciplines, including Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Astronomy, and Junior Science. With structured training through the EGMO Training Camp (EGMOTC) and continuous support from the National Board of Higher Mathematics (Department of Atomic Energy), HBCSE plays a pivotal role in nurturing and preparing talented students for prestigious international competitions.

Felicitation Ceremony: Celebrating Excellence

To honor the achievements of the Indian delegation, a felicitation ceremony was organized at the Main Building of HBCSE on the morning of April 18, 2024. The ceremony served as a platform to celebrate the remarkable success of these young mathematical prodigies and acknowledge their dedication and hard work.

As India continues to foster an environment that nurtures and encourages excellence in the field of mathematics, the achievements of the Indian team at the 13th EGMO 2024 serve as a testament to the nation’s commitment to promoting and recognizing exceptional talent on the global stage.
