While the other article in this issue will give a glimpse of Shafarevich as a mathematician, and as a teacher at the elementary level, this article-in-a-box goes over his eventful and controversial life. Igor Shafarevich was born to very well educated parents in 1923 in the town of Zhytomyr in what is now Ukraine. As in many Indian families, it was at his mother’s parents’ place. His father studied mechanics at the Moscow State University and taught at the Engineering Physics Institute among others.
