  • Putting below a small story that has resulted in reinvigoration of my interest in research. :)

I work in IBM’s Bangalore (India) office.  The drive time between my office and home is more than an hour, one way. To utilize this time wisely, I started listening to audio books. Over a period of one year, I listened to some amazing literature like Astrophysicsfor People in a Hurry by Neil de Grasse Tyson, Einstein's Relativity and the Quantum Revolution: Modern Physics for Non-Scientists by Richard Wolfson, Unifying Quantum Physics, Consciousness, M-Theory, Heaven, Neuroscience and Transcendence by Amit Goswami and Joseph Selbie; and Sapiens and Homo Deus, by Yuval Noah Harari. These amazing tales of human curiosity, aspirations, and implacable effort to solve perplexing problems confronting humanity reinvigorated some of my latent dreams, ever science then I have been looking to get associated in reseach work :)
