My First Summer Project

I completed my first ever official summer project in the field of Quantum Mechanics under a mentor from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. Although being a reading project, it was still great fun to delve deep into the mysteries of Quantum Physics and be awe-struck by the realization of how bizarrely nature actually functions. For my project, I referred to “Introduction To Quantum Mechanics by David J. Griffiths”, which I found absolutely outstanding. Remembering R.W. Sockman’s famous quote, I agree that the larger my island of knowledge grew, the longer did become its shoreline of wonder…

Hello and welcome to my blog !!!

I am an ardent student of Physics and this blog is my web journal. I created it to store and share all my idiosyncratic ideas, preposterous propositions, thoughtful theories, hybrid hypotheses, exhausting explanations, exhilarating experiments, punctilious proofs, critical conclusions, impactful implications and several other such similarly stimulating scientific stuff !!!

I also created this in the hopes that a web log of my scientific doodles may benefit me (or anybody who’s interested to take a look) in my scientific pursuits (or theirs), in the future. This blog is also for the casual reader, since scientific articles oft make an interesting and stimulating read. Moreover, one gets to learn something new, and every iota of knowledge acquired takes us a small step closer to understanding how the perplexing reality, which we call our universe, works.  That’s a nice perspective, isn’t it? And maybe, somewhere among the bubbling bundle of thoughts which emerge from the mind every moment, lies an idea that has the potential to change the world ?! You never know……

I conclude with a simple, yet enlightening quote by Sir Issac Newton:

“If I have done the public any service, it is due to my patient thought.”
