Do you know why Lightening occurs? [joke]

Do you know why Lightening occurs? I will give you a reason which is neither true nor decent. Its based on a myth that I created from another myth called Indian scriptures.

Once Indra [CEO of heaven’s rain department, rain God fame] was visiting Goutama’s house. Goutama lived in wild-creek, meadows crossing, Allendale, Michigan. Goutama works in a walmart and returns late. Indra was later blamed to be having illicit sexual relations with Ahalya the beautiful wife of Goutama and was asked to sign a note that declares he indeed visited a few times. He was also blamed for disturbing Goutama’s good will towards Indra. To save Ahalya’s reputation in an equal and affirmative women first community it was said Indra used his magical powers to look like Goutama.

Later Indra discovered that his dignity was played with to save Ahalya and Goutama’s. He complained about this but nobody listened. He then also found out that every man looks like Goutama to Ahalya and this has happened to others before.

He moved out of Allendale and returned to his place in Cloud-sphere and started shouting. This showed up as thunderstorm on earth and lightning as he is the rain God. But nobody listened. Since ages Indra has been shouting and complaining about Ahalya and those who believed she was innocent and this is lightning and thunderstorm.

I am an experimental particle physicist, traveler, teacher, researcher, scientist and communicator of ideas. I am a quarkist and a bit quirky ! Hypothesis non fingo, eppur si muove, dubito cogito ergo sum are things that turn me on ! Researcher in experimental high energy physics (aka elementary particle physics; like “quarks, leptons & mesons and baryons”) … Teacher of Physics (and occasionally chemistry and maths) Blogger (check my website; ! Love to read read and read but only stuff that interest me. Love to puff away my time in frivolities, just dreaming and may be thinking. Right now desperately trying to streamline myself.
