What to Write?

I still find myself floundering. Still not settled at new place. So little time is left. Due to this my literary urge has been suppressed these days. This is the reason, I have not written anything worthwhile since many days. What to write? is the question. My mind seems to have run out of ideas and observations. I feel that everything around us is a mirage, it is not reality, it is Maya. Those whom you thought were close to you have been found wanting. What is the reality nobody knows.

In different religions of the world, every concept has two counterparts. Nature abounds in complements. Man and woman, Yin and Yang, Shiva and Shakti. So much so that Shiva took the form of half man-half woman… Read More »Bug of optimism

Dr.Feynman on Quantum Theory

Such is the science of quantum mechanics that Dr. Feynman, the Nobel Laureate for his work on quantum mechanics, when delivering a talk on quantum mechanics told the gathering “It is my task to convince you not to turn away because you don’t understand it. You see, my physics students don’t understand it either. This is because I don’t understand it. Nobody does.”
