Boson conundrum II Reply

This one article on Higgs and Bosons also I didn’t want to write. But I thought may be you should know something more than you already know.

read this (linked to pdf) eye opening article on BOSE (SN) and decide how silly its to believe any wrong has been done to him by the west especially when he got recognition by Einstein and Fellow of Royal Society by help of Dirac. Its our OWN TYPE of scientists that played politics with him so he did not get a Professorship position.

Which is why he said he had no qualms about anything, he has gotten his recognition. His son says his father has nothing to do with Higgs discovery. But Indian government wants to make a prolonged issue. They think this is the way to get a Noble?

And how about Brout? He was really old and he died. He really discovered the Higgs. He didn’t cry “my name is not used for the particle”. That whole euphoria wasn’t there. It came only after the actual discovery of the particle which took more than 5 decades and tons of particle physics labs as precursors. And India has none of these particle labs. Wonder where all the money going? Towards luxury of presidents and vice presidents and prime ministers.

Why “Indians” don’t raise a hue and cry over the issue of a Penta-Quark discovery? Do they even know its a Boson or Fermion? Do they even know what a Boson really is? Some one said “hey they are doing this again man, they are even not giving this damn Nobel prize to our great scientist Bose”. Then started Gandhi Giri. How many of you really care about the abysmal state of affair of Indian education and science research? Do you know India almost lost a Nobel in neutrino physics because that lab was shut down in Kolar Gold mines. Later the same study was done in Japan and the prize was duly given to Japanese scientists. Do you know One prominent particle physics lab and the first one for India has been delayed by close to 1 decade by the same Government on pretext of environment that is doing all this fake “forgotten hero” drama. We are lucky that we are even getting a chance to do science abroad. Our research labs are cow shed and those that are not are ruled by MAFIA who you worship on TV everyday as educationists and Philanthropists. Stop being cry babies and recognize your responsibilities.

My Teaching Philosophy. 1

Teaching is therefore while creative, satisfying and attractive in many respects and suitably rewarding one must be devoted in as many angles as it requires to be successful and responsible keeping the motto of teaching in glaring memory: teaching produces tomorrow’s citizens, the spearheads and pioneers of tomorrow’s world is the just product of today’s education and a teacher is the most relevant architect for that purpose.

I also look at teaching and learning process from another angle of paramount importance. Research. Teaching devoid of the latest knowledge of a body of epistemology, a creative dint of heuristics never discovered before or a suave deviation from a canonical pedagogy cannot be effective or attractive. One therefore in almost all academic branches be inclined to persevere to invent or share such gained insights by others towards the student-body. An ideally inspired student with an appetite to grow and cultivate the action of learning is not only the need of academia but also a cornerstone of a progressive society. More…

The 1 ppm mentality of India in education. Reply

This article talks about some educational paradigms of India but gives the following anecdote to the end.

Belated Happy Feynman Birthday. 11/may/2013. He was born this day in the year 1918. 8 years younger to my maternal grand father. Which is why I am always amazed by Feynman. My grand pa was a farmer in a village of India and a teacher, a renowned teacher at that in his locality. He was paralyzed in his last years and died in 1996. Thats again exactly 8 years after 1988 demise of Feynman. Hence they both lived exactly 70 years of age. They were both outstanding teachers and artists {my grand pa was a fabulous artist, a fact I had forgotten over the years, he drew many things for me when I was about 7/8 years old, including say Shiva or Ramayana, at an instant’s notice by me}, Feynman was a bright star in the Glove, my grand pa only in his locality which perhaps extended say 100 villages if not more. Feynman was a farmer in some sense because of his hard work. But my point is Feynman’s vigor. A fact of amazement, perhaps since Feynman didn’t grow in a village of India but the communities of advanced localities. Perhaps Feynman was simply the highest standard of exuberance. My grand pa was lively and funny and loving but Feynman was a womanizer. I don’t know about this secret of my grand pa. My grand mother always crushed my interest in knowing such matters. More…

The academic sky of Asia. Reply

4. Rep of Korea: 14% organizations in top-100. Korea is 1.2% of Asia population.

Result: Korea provides about 12 quality organizations for each percentage of its people, normalized to Asia. Korea provides 1 quality organizations to about 7% of Asia population.

{quality orgs for its own people, normal to Asia; Korea 12 orgs/%, Japan: 7 orgs/%, China: 2orgs /%, India: 0.1 orgs /%}

{quality orgs for Asia population; Japan: 1 to 7%, China: 1 to 7%, Korea: 1 to 7 %, India 1 to 33%}

I haven’t scanned other countries such as Israel and UArabE. I am sitting in a cyber cafe to do this analysis and the keyboard was installed in 1556, so basically can’t type efficiently, its like pushing a stone with your elbow hair, like there is any. More…

Patriarchy in Indian academics. Our excellence is a myth. Reply

The Indian Academics are glorious organizations, renowned around the world for their moribund infrastructure but excellency in education.

Isn’t it a myth?

How can we produce the best athletes who live and practice in mush? Perhaps the king just needs the athletes, no matter what, as the Olympics needs them. This time the international organizations have created and sustained such myth. They need a large number of half educated folks. The ones that are not trained.

The same story of British magnet. It will sustain a low grade low quality task force, because we are not anyway harnessing on their quality, but on their quantity. We have to run empires. We have thwarted the real Kings and wrested the power from them, to have our democracy. Now we have to come out looking like Kings. More…

IMA (IoMA, Institute of Mathematics) now ISI. Reply

IMA has a nice wind-born campus in the outskirts of Bhubaneswar, about 6 kms from the famous ancient caves. In the beautiful but wild rural parts of Bhubaneswar, perfect for research organization only if highly funded and having fabulous infrastructure. I think this will now come true. More…
