Few days back  when i woke up i experienced that my head was spinning vigoresly.
I caught hold of my bed I thought i am travelling through a wormhole. Now i will land in another dimention…i had read…
I screamed my family came to help. I landed at doctors clinic, he pronounced that it was cervical spondylosis. I thanked almighty that i got well. My mind was thinking of the wormholes, time travel the dimentions…..


In physics, time is described as a  dimention much like length, width, and height.When you travel from your house to the grocery store, you are travelling through a direction in space, making headway in the spatial dimention -length width and height. But you are also travelling forward in time, the fourth dimention.(Sara Goudarzi)

What does a dimention mean?

A dimention is a degree of freedom of a system.  In simple words it is a numberof ways or direction in which change can take place in a system.   we can understand by the following example.
Imagine an ant walking on a thread. It can move forward and  backward only.It cannot move side ways That means its degree of freedom of movement is in one dimention only. Now imagine that ant is placed on a flat surface. It can move forward sideways but not upwards or downwards. That means its degree of freedom of movement is two dimention.  Now imagine an ant has wings . Its degree of freedom of movement is upwards downwards sideways forward and backwards.  Therefore its degree of freedom of movement is three dimention like us.

Bob Singer NASA Engineer says , an object that actually  exits from the time it came into existantance until it ceases to exist has a duration the fourth dimention.
That means the ant that was moving on the thread had not one but two dimention one was space and the other time. In the same way we live in this world in three dimentions plus one time dimention.
Special relativity propounded by Einstein demolished the concept
of absolute time. He unified time and space terming spacetime
He termed it as our fourth dimention. In space we can move forward and backwards but dimention of space time we can move in
one direction that is forward only. the concept of time dilation in special relativity t ells us that time slows down for an object as it speeds up to the speed of light. For example, a person A who is travelling in space with a speed of light, and a person B who is stationary B on Earth, the person A who returns to Earth say after five years in space sees that the person B  on Earth has aged in decades. The faster you move the slower time changes for you! It is a fact which has been verified through experiments.

Time is unique dimention you can move in one direction that is forward you cannot move backward.

Can we Time Travel?

Time Travel has been mans wildest fantasies for centuries..
H. G Wells “The Time Machine” and the latest fiction movie “INTERSTELLAR”

Intersteller is a science fiction the film is directed by Chritopher Nolan the film features a crew of astronauts who travel through a wormhole in search of a new home for humanity.



(Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway star as Joseph “Coop” Cooper and Dr. Amelia Brand respectively.)

According to Einstein’s theory of general relativity, a wormhole could act like a bridge though space-time by connecting two distant points with a shortcut the Einstein Rosen bride in 1935.
In the late 1980s, Thorne said that a wormhole could be made into a time machine.

¬The meaning of fugue (fyoog) is a musical composition in which a short melody is successfully repeated by different voices or instruments. “Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let him live . In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another.”…Carl Sagan, Cosmos.

Is Earth a single voice of one lonely theme “Music of Life” in the Universe or is there (a cosmic fugue )– different voices playing the Music of Life in billions of planets circling the Suns in the numerous ‘Galaxies’. In another words is there an extraterrestrial life? What kind of life there is? Does they constitute of the same organic matter as we on earth are made of. All living things¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬ on earth have common organic chemistry and common evolutionary heritage.

carbon atom plays the central role in all complex or simple or microscopic beings.¬¬¬¬ Billions of years ago our earth was lonely and barren. There was no life. How the carbon based elements made? How did they come together to form a single cell… then multicellular organisms formed and complex beings as we came into existence?

Charles Darwin

Probably all the organic beings which have ever lived on this Earth have descended from some one primordial form into which life was first breathed—There is a grandeur in this view of life that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed laws of gravity from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been and are being evolved…..Charles Darwin…The Origin of Species 1859”

5. Structure of DNA

Structure of DNA

According to the Research carried by Scientists & paeleantalogists our Earth was formed some 4.5 billion years ago. The Hydrogen rich molecules of the primitive Earth were broken due to lightening and ultra violet radiations.They recombined into more complex molecules they were the earliest ancestors of “deoxyribose neuclic acid”DNA the master molecule of Life on Earth.

6. paramecium


What is DNA? DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is the hereditary material in humans and almost all other organisms It is located in the Nucleus.The information in DNA is stored as a code made up of four chemical bases: adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T).

7. dna cropped

The order, or sequence, of these bases determines the information available for building and maintaining an organism, similar to the way in which letters of the alphabet appear in a certain order to form words and sentences. The DNA molecule resembles like a spiral strands called double helix.

The structure of the double helix is somewhat like a ladder, the rungs of this ladder is made of the four bases A(adenine)G(guanine)C(cytosine)T(Thymine) The sides of this ladder is made of sugar and phosphorus. Together a base sugar and phosphorus is termed nucleotide.

know from the fossil records that the origin of life happened soon after in ponds and oceans of the primitive Earth. The first organisms were unicellular (single cell) algae then by mutation they evolved to multi cellular .

Cambrian Explosion: Around 500 million years ago in the Cambrian era rocks the fossils of different animals were found at the floors of Cambrian oceans. It spoke about their existence. After the Cambrian Explosion new adaptations took place with speed. First fish and the first vertebrate appeared winged insects arose , amphibians creatures like lung fish who survived both on land and water .

The first trees and the first reptiles emerged. The dinosaurs evolved the first mammals appeared. The first flowers and birds appeared; the dinosaurs became extinct , the earliest cetaceans, ancestors to the dolphins and whales, arose and in the same period primates the ancestors of monkeys the apes and the humans arose.. (Carl Sagan)

12. cosmos


Few million years ago the first true humans emerged. We have known and heard the voice of life on one small world only. Will we be able to hear the voice of life on other worlds? Although it may not be that easy but at least we have begun our search to listen for voices (extraterristial life) in cosmic fugue.



The Title of my blog One Voice in the Cosmic Fugue is taken from Carl Sagans book COSMOS.

Colonizing the Planet Mars

Colonizing the Planet Mars

Our life when we colonize on Mars

Colonizing Mars. With the release of Ridley Scott’s movie The Martian on 2nd oct. it is acclaimed that it is one of the most realistic portrayals of human space exploration ever filmed. Based on the 2011 science fiction novel by Andy Weir the film stars Matt Damon as Mark Watney,a botanist turned astronaut marooned on Mars. He was accidently left behind by his crewmates. The Ares III manned mission to Mars is hit by intense storm Mark Watney is lost and presumed that he is dead. The mission commander Mellisa Leewis is forced to leave the planet as the rest crews lives were at stake.

As NASA workers struggle to launch a mission to bring him back home, Watney improvises one ingenious scheme after another to stay alive. He turns his habitat into a chemistry lab and a greenhouse, extracting potable water from rocket fuel and growing potatoes in nutrient-poor Martian soil fertilized with his own feces.

Coming to the fact and not fiction, NASA has plans to send men on Mars in 2030. “Journey to Mars Programme.” Its facing quite big other problems inspite of the advanced Technology and accuracy they have developed.

4. Terraforming


The recent discovery of water on Mars has developed hopes of colonizing humans on Mars. Terraforming .. Mars is more suitable for human inhabitation than any other planet or our moon. NASA’s robotic mission, the ‘Mars Exploration Rovers’ has sent unmanned rovers, ‘Spirit’ and ‘Opportunity’ and Curiosity.

There are Many similarities between Mars and Earth that make viable options for colonization . for eg, Nearly similar lengths of days….Axial tilt is similar therefore basic seasonal patterns as Earth (albeit for longer periods of time). Mars is in Suns habitable zone Goldilock zone. But Mars has 95% carbon dioxide . Mars has no global magnetic field , to protect from radiations pouring in its thin atmosphere. It will be a herculean task to create oxygen for breathing and growing crops for surviving on Mars.



Advocating Colonization of Mars ‘Mars Society’, an organization founded by Robert Zubrin, promotes and advocates the colonization of Mars. It was established in 1998 and does the work of educating people and governments about benefits of space exploration and colonization of Mars.



‘Mars Drive’ is another group that supports space exploration and colonization of Mars. Founded in 2005, this group has spread out in Europe, North America and Australia. ELON Musk stated that the goal of Space x is to help humans to get to Mars . They are designing rockets landers and equipment to support this. Musk would like to build a Mars colony with 80,000 people second most habitable place in the solar system. Let us hope that humans make another (second giant)leap for the Mankind by Colonizing Mars.

A great person never dies he is alive in our hearts!

Batspidey's Blog

For most of the world, the difference between the 27th and 28th of July, 2015, was just the day. Monday and Tuesday. Period. But, for the people of the second most populous country in the world, the difference was much, much, much more. The first was a day with Dr Kalam, the second without. Today, a country mourns it’s president, its youngsters mourn their idol.
But, I beg to differ. Of all the people saying R.I.P on social media, I wasn’t one. I wasn’t among the people watching the news all day. Because I don’t think he is no more. I think he lives on in every youngster he has ever inspired, including me. He lives in his ideas, his dreams, his visions of a bright future. He continues to walk with us…

Heart Image originally posted on the Ramana Maharshi FB Page by Cathy Ginter

Dear Friends,

In any language, the term “Heart” is unique. In Sanskrit, the “Heart” is referred to as Hridayam. Hridayam means, “Here is the Center”.

Bhagavan Sri Ramana gave a unique emphasis to the term “Heart” or “Hriydayam” in Sanskrit. He spoke about it frequently as the center of centers in which the mind must find final rest.

In ancient Eastern texts and scriptures, the Heart is talked about in the context of physical health, mental health, and also spiritual health and vitality. Even in English, we intuitively know that the word “Heart” really has multiple meanings.

If someone says to you, “You have a beautiful heart”, it does not mean that the person feels you have a very attractive physical organ beating in your chest.  No, not at all! The statement about the beauty of your heart…

(Its a true story of my Father in Law)
A six year old boy was playing in the backyard of his house. There stood an iron pole inserted vertically.  The children used to climb up and then slide down.  The elder ones performed all sorts of exercises.
But that day he was all alone.  He found a leather belt.  He held it tightly in his little hand and started whipping the pole relentlessly..  His mother stood at the doorstep watching him.  He whipped the pole again and again murmuring “why did you kill my father.”  He was red with rage.  Not knowing the child’s sudden behavior she rushed at him.  He screamed “why did you kill my father.”  The words deafened her ears and she consoled her young one took him in her arms.  She knew she could not bring back his father.  Her husband would never return! He was killed by the dacoit.
Her husband was an Inspector in the Police force.  He was posted at Badnaver, in Madhya Pradesh.  Everybody addressed him as Raosaheb.
Raosaheb was very handsome strongly built and a brave person.  He caught hold of dangerous thieves and vagabonds and put them behind the bars.
life went on.. he found a beautiful lady fell in love and eventually married her.  They were blessed with five children.  As soon as he returned home from his tour, the children would cluster round him. He played with them. He would pick the young ones and swing them on his arms.  Their reverberating laughter and chuckles freshened him up.
Night was pleasant to be in parents arms. This bliss lasted for a very short period.  The darkness enveloped the twinkling stars which foretold a grievous future for the family.
That very night the Inspector spoke to his wife about his plans to catch the dacoit.    A pall of gloom spread over her.  She was dumbfounded as all her plans to desist him from venturing his arduous task.
Parting with his dear ones he strode away in the eerie jungles with his small coup—a handful of men and meager ammunition.  The dense forest near Badnawar in Madyapradesh was the dacoit’s hideout.  They drove in the deep forests in bullocarts – it was the only means to travel in those days.  The narrow lanes of the village, after village was traversed until one village was spotted for supplying huge amount of chicken meat and wines.  At ones the Inspector acumen directed his men towards that place. soon they confronted a  fierce looking person clad in military uniform with broad mustache.  No doubt that he was the famous dacoit Nathakanjar the most wanted by the police force.  He was surrounded by his men.. They were well equipped with ammunition.  He roared aloud to bring the Inspector before him.  After much interrogation the dacoit had insisted the Inspector to give up his Police uniform his belt and guns and surrender before them.  The brave Inspector preferred to fight with him unto his death.  It would be an insult to his profession to go back and cowardly submit to the dacoit’s demands. A fierce battle raged between the two troops. A sepoy who fled for his life had climbed a tree and saw the drama with his naked eye.  He was a sole survivor and later narrated the whole incident to the family members and the villagers all that had transpired between the two parties.  The fearless Inspector was none other than the little boy’s father.
The body of Raosaheb was brought home and laid for last darshan.
The small boy caught hold of his weeping mother’s hand, consoled her and promised to take care of her henceforth.
The heavens rumbled as the guns were fired..a mark of salutations for the Martyr. The last rights were performed..
Years later,
the promise he had made to his mother had been fulfilled when his mother breathed last.  A huge void left him, but this time he was not alone, his better half held him to share his grief.

A Spritual Experience!

  A spiritual Experience!
In moments when the inner lamps are lit
And the life’s cherished guests are left outside,
Our Spirit sits alone and speaks to its gulfs.
(Shri Aurobindo (Savitri)
It was late evening, I peeped through my window.  The sky had turned scarlet .  The birds had flown in  to their nests.  This hour was very special.  I lit the evening lamp.  The perfume of the insence sticks engulfed the house.  The noisy day was somewhat quiet now.  My evening prayes had commensed.  After the prayers I loved to stay in this quiet mood.  Years back, i recalled a lovely story I had read.  It was about a rich woman she asks her Master(spiritual) that inspite of having all the comforts  wealth a good loving husband, children house everything in life, she feels empty and something missing in her life. What& Why?   To this the spiritual Master replies …”A part of our mind remains empty even if all the riches happiness of this world we get.  We must fill this gap initially by prayers to Almighty.  We have to build right climate (moral and psychological purification is necessary)  .  Just as we leave our shoes ouside before we enter the temple , we have to leave certain shoes before we enter the sanctuary of meditation…Shri Aurobindo
Daily this prayers has to be exercised.”  Further, he explained her how to practice meditation.                The woman obeyed him.  She sat on a sofa in her room closed her eyes and sat for meditation as instructed by the Master, daily..for considerable span.  After  some time she visited the spiritual Master and thanked him .  She no more had that feeling of emptiness. Moreover , peace prevailed. The real meaning of Life had unfolded to her!
“This is how we talk with the Almighty”,said the Master.   “Daily giving few minutes of silent  communion .  In the beginning with a short praise ,  reciting his name etc few minutes of deep breathing then keeping silence in body and mind.  This quietude leads us to peace and then his love starts pouring wisdom dawns, your heart is full of his grace which overflows in the form of tears at times.” He explained.
The saints say you cry for the worldly things all your life have you wept for the Almighty , who has created you and this beautiful creation the Universe.  Have we thanked him?
You are here to enable the Divine purpose of the universe to unfold.
This is how important you are!…Echart Tolle
Once Swamy Vivekananda had asked Shri Ramakrishna, have you seen God ?
“Yes”, replied the Master,. “I see him just as I see you here, only in a much intenser sense.” “The magic touch of the Master that day immediately brought a wonderful change over my mind. I was astounded to find that really there was nothing in the universe but God! … everything I saw appeared to be Brahman. ”…Swamy Vivekananda
Ask and it shall be given to you
Knock and it shall open to you
Seek and it shall be reveald to you
Words of the Lord (Jesus Christ) ringing in my ears…
One touch one glance of the Master changes the whole life…I pondered
I had sat in this mood for quite some time.
‘ For oft on my couch I lie,
In vacant or in pensive mood, they flash upon my Inward Eye in the Bliss of Solitude’….William Wordsworth

Dad I remember You!

A Glimpse of The Major
Those days I was serving in a private company.  My father had come to see us.  He had retired from his Defense Services.  He retired as a Major.  He was well built handsome  came from a village.  With his hard work  and sharpness he  was promoted as 2nd  lieutenant in the Army.  He was married to a beautiful lady(my mother) from the same village.
We were, huge family of three brothers and five sister was like the Sound of Music..
Do Re Mi Fa So La Te Do……..

As the years passed, we grew up did our schooling and then College.  All of us got settled and married.

That day, I was thrilled that father would come and see my posh office.  I introduced him to my Boss.  My boss granted me leave and so I spent the hours with my father visiting the shops and purchasing things…
Later we sat in a café for coffee…we chatted. His sparkling eyes wore a tired look.- we returned home.
I had realized father was aging.  At night massaged his feet with oil.  My hands felt the scars, bullets had pierced during war.  Memories kindled I could vishualise the harsh yesteryears. Fighting and braving the attacks of the enemy.  He had narrated us his encounters in the harsh snowladen mountains
I remember his bottle green uniform, decked up with medels.. we kids used to take pride in polishing them.  He had risen from 2nd lieutenant to Major.    Father was stationed to different places.  He could get leave for a couple of days to visit his family.  Life was very hard.    During war (with China in 1962) he was posted to remote place(NEFA Border).
We families of our Regiment were stationed at Srinagar. It was like a big community living together.  Our happiness and sorrow shared together.
I recall the  Sirens, the troops petrolling in the streets.  Our mother was a brave lady taking care of her small children.
At night there was total blackout.  The darkness and marauding planes would frighten us.     The day, too did not feel secure .  The news from the border was the topic in every mouth.  Where air raids from the enemy had taken place?  How many jawans and officers were killed!  How did the enemy get to know the strategy of Commanding Officer with his troops stationed …His area was bombarded!  The slain body was brought home to pay the respect from his near and dear ones.(A close friend of my father.) Last rights were performed.  The Gun Salute reverberated the sky.
The pangs of war victims are still there..vivid
No news we received of our father.
Wives of the Officers of our Regiment would gather .  Together with the families of the Jawans, kintted sweaters, glovers socks mufflers for the jawans .  Food items too were packed and sent at the border.  The winter was  unbearable. They(Jawans) were short of armaments etc. entailing large scale combat at the altitude of 4,250meters(14,000 ft).  The worst conditions they encountered.
Days passed ,  and one day on the 20th Nov1962 the ceasefire was declared by the enemy.  It withdrew its forces from the disputed area.  At last the war was over..

The day dawned when Father knocked our door.  Our joys knew no bounds.  Mother and we thanked the Almighty for his return from the battle.

After more than nine years of traveling through space the New Horizons spacecraft is now in the home stretch of its journey, with less than 120 days and 143 million kilometers to go before it makes its historic flyby of the Pluto system on July 14. It will be the first time we get a good close-up look at the distant world which had for over seven decades held reign over the frozen edges of our Solar System as the outermost planet, much like its namesake governed the cold darkness of the mythological Greek underworld.

Discovered on February 18, 1930, the ninth planet Pluto lost its “full” planetary status in August 2006 as the result of a highly-contested decision by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) to create a new class of “dwarf planets,” of which Pluto, Ceres, and the then-recently-discovered Eris became charter members. Seven months…
