All India Rank

Set in 1997, the series opens by unraveling the elegance of Euler’s identity, e^(iπ) + 1 = 0, hailed as the pinnacle of mathematical beauty. Animated digits gracefully reinforce this assertion.

It’s here that Vivek’s path toward the IITs begins to unfold.

Argylle

Elly Conway, a reclusive author, crafts bestselling espionage novels centered around Argylle, a secret agent on a mission to expose a global spy syndicate.
