While the award of a Bharat Ratna to former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee was expected, and while a consensus by and large agreed with the choice, serious questions deserve to be—and were— asked about the choice of a posthumous Bharat Ratna to Madan Mohan Malviya (see the tweets from historian Ramachandra Guha and journalist Shekhar Gupta below, for example).

Manjul Bhargava was awarded the prestigious Fields Medal, considered to be the Nobel Prize of mathematics, at a grand ceremony held in Seoul, Korea, on August 13, 2014. Officially called the International Medal for Outstanding Discoveries in Mathematics, it is awarded once every four years and regarded as the greatest honour a mathematician can receive.

His award citation described Bhargava's groundbreaking work in number theory as "based both on a deep understanding of the representations of arithmetic groups and a unique blend of algebraic and analytic expertise."

Bhargava, a mathematics professor at Princeton University, is driven by his search for artistic truth and beauty and is credited with some of the most profound recent discoveries in number theory, the branch of mathematics that studies the relationships between whole numbers.

In the past few years, he has made great strides toward understanding the range of possible solutions to equations known as elliptic curves, which have bedeviled number theorists for more than a century.
