Light, the collection of the witty packets of energy, called photons, dwells in the research of intellectuals in each and every field of research that human mind could imagine. Light makes the newborn cry at its first encounter. Light is a mystery even to the greatest physicists as each of them define it differently. Einstein called it a particle and there arose another scientist who called it a wave. And the present theory says that it’s both of them.
Spiritualists call it the illumination in our consciousness and the meaning of life. Revolutionists call it as the knowledge and the intellectual strength to move ahead. Medical professionals strive to show the physically challenged, the physical light; though the so called blind have a different sphere of light deep inside their minds..
Light and gravity created the universe as the big bang says. Light is the centre of the very structure of space and time. The cosmos is a wonder to gaze at and explore right from the Earth’s planetary neighbors of the sun’s family to the material objects in the distant galaxies. We are lucky to have been bestowed with telescopes to enjoy the cosmic feast.
Light pulses propagating in tiny optical fibres of the width of a tiny strip of thread have created the modern communications of today’s world. The future development of society in both developed countries and emerging ones around the world are inclined with the ability to effectively light our places.
The scientific knowledge of light has given a new dimension to our lifestyle and intellect.Light stands as the symbol of peace, rebel and knowledge from the beginning of civilizations.
