The Miracle Year

“Imagination is more important than knowledge”
Guess who said that, Dr. Abdul Kalam? Well the answer is No!!
Another clue, he is one of the great scientist world has ever produced.
His ideas launched a technological revolution that has generated more change in century than in the previous two millennia. Can you imagine a scientific world without this man?
A man, whose white hair and droopy mustache still symbolizes genius ness.
If you are still wondering about whom I am talking well you must be certainly from some other planet or new to this Earth?!
Who else could it be but Sir Albert Einstein?


Sir Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
If you are wondering what’s so special about this?
Well Universities worldwide are celebrating the 100th anniversary of Einstein’s “Miracle Year”, in 1905.
This is when he published five scientific papers that changed the world’s grasp of space, time, light and matter.

Einstein had his own way of explaining things. Einstein described relativity this way:
“Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.”
Being an extraordinary genius, did he believe in God?! (Back home in Madras, India atheist there make fun of believers saying those who believed in God is a Fool and barbaric!!)
Anyway this is what he has to say "Before God we are all equally wise - and equally foolish."
I guess in their dictionary Einstein must be a fool!!
