Mother earth takes lot of time and pain to decompose things we litter everyday. Lets have sanity and some thought before we throw garbage.

Abhinav cares Mother Earth. Even he said he wants to become Scientist to find a cure for pollution and preserve nature.

How We Pay for Incompetence

Nicely put on Productivity and competence !!!

Sometime back I got some plumbing work done. The plumber said the work would take around eight hours or one full day. Once he started working, it took me a couple of hours to figure out that he was basically wasting time and he could easily finish work in four hours.

I confronted him on this and he agreed. The logic he offered for wasting time was very interesting. He said, plumbing was a profession that needed some experience and expertise. He had the necessary experience and expertise and could work faster than the average plumber could. The trouble was whenever he finished worked fast, the customers would dilly dally in paying him, the amount of money, that had been agreed on.

The reason always offered was, “but that hardly took any time”. He found it very difficult to explain to his customers that it barely took any time simply…

Very scary. But food for thought.

Pharma Pundit

Dr. Vishal Rao, an oncologist and head and neck surgeon at the Bangalore-based HealthCare Global (HCG) Cancer Center, writes about the debate on food safety in India and how it is related to cancer.

A 45-year-old man presented himself to an oncologist with the typical symptoms of stomach cancer. His worst fears came true, the biopsy reports showed positive results.

He led an extremely healthy lifestyle; exercised regularly, maintained a balanced diet and did not have any addictions. Yet, cancer had managed to conquer his system. The distraught man asked the doctor, “Why me?” The visibly uncomfortable doctor was speechless.

A lot of their patients may have maintained a healthy lifestyle and yet, end up succumbing to cancer. It may not be just tobacco; we have tons of other carcinogens, which have unfortunately entered our diet chart.

Some of the reports on food exports from India show we rank among…

S Chandrasekhar – One of the Great Scientist of India

Google Doodle Celebrates S Chandrasekhar Birthday !!!!

Described as a “child prodigy” and hailed as the first astrophysicist to win a Nobel Prize for his theory on the evolution of stars, Diwali on Thursday would have been Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar’s 107th birthday.

In his honour, Google is changing its logo in 28 countries to a doodle, or illustration, of him and the Chandrasekhar Limit.

But in his lifetime, the Indian American astrophysicist was not always recognised for his achievements. This is his story:

Intellectual family

  • Born in Lahore in 1910 to a Tamil family, Chandrasekhar was home tutored until age 12.
  • In his autobiography, Chandrasekhar referred to his mother as “My mother Sita was a woman of high intellectual attainments”.
  • His uncle, Sir CV Raman, won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930.
  • Also in 1930, Chandrasekhar completed his bachelor’s degree in physics at the Presidency College in Madras, India (known today as Chennai).
  • Chandrasekhar was then awarded a scholarship by the government of India to pursue graduate studies at the University of Cambridge in the UK. He completed his PhD studies in 1933.
  • Married to Lalitha Doraiswamy in the southern Indian city of Madras, Chandrasekhar praised his wife’s “patient understanding, support, and encouragement” and called those the “central facts of my life”.

Late recognition

  • Working as a researcher at Cambridge University, Chandrasekhar made his most significant discovery, which became known as the Chandrasekhar Limit. But his colleagues were sceptical of his discovery and sought to discredit it.
  • According to the Open University, English astronomer Sir Arthur Eddington persuaded Chandrasekhar to present his findings at the Royal Astronomical Society in London on January 11, 1935.
  • At the astronomical society, Eddington then gave a lecture to “demolish the young researcher’s calculations and theory, dismissing it as mere mathematical game playing”.
  • More than 30 years later, in 1966, scientific research with computers and the hydrogen bomb gave credit to Chandrasekhar’s calculations.
  • Black holes, central to Chandrasekhar’s theory, were identified in 1972. His calculations contributed to the understanding of supernovas, neutron stars and black holes.

Security clearance

  • In 1937, Chandrasekhar immigrated to the US and started working at the University of Chicago.
  • During World War II, he was invited to join the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos to make a nuclear bomb, but delays in the processing of his security clearance prevented him from joining.
  • Still, Chandrasekhar contributed to the war effort, working for the Ballistic Research Laboratory in Maryland.
  • In 1953, 16 years after he came to the US, Chandrasekhar was granted US citizenship. He died in Chicago at the age of 85.

Quotes

  • In his book, Truth and Beauty, he offered his advice to aspiring scientists, “What a scientist tries to do essentially is to select a certain domain, a certain aspect, or a certain detail, and see if that takes its appropriate place in a general scheme which has form and coherence; and, if not, to seek further information which would help him to do that.”
  • In his autobiographical sketch for the Nobel Prize ceremony, he described what motivated his scientific quest, “When, after some years of study, I feel that I have accumulated a sufficient body of knowledge and achieved a view of my own, I have the urge to present my point of view, ab initio, in a coherent account with order, form, and structure”.
  • In an interview, Chandrasekhar praised the US, “I have one advantage here in the United States. I have enormous freedom. I can do what I want. Nobody bothers me”.

Honours

  • When Chandrasekhar was 43, he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society.
  • At the age of 56, he was awarded the National Medal of Science for his numerous contributions to stellar astronomy, physics and applied mathematics.
  • At the age of 61, he was honoured with the Draper Medal from the US National Academy of Science for his leadership in, and major contributions to, the field of astrophysics.
  • In 1983, at 73 years of age, Chandrasekhar shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with William Fowler for his theoretical studies of the physical processes of importance to the structure and evolution of the stars.

Abhinav’s First Share

Relationship between Share market and Hot wheels.
Today’s morning conversation between me and Abhinav which happened when we were riding on bike.
