IMMORTAL SCIENCE AND MORTAL SCIENTISTS

One of the most prominent and evident discourses in the present day world is the dialogue between scientists and science.  The complex but enduring relationship between science and scientists is a manifestation of unknown facts.  This multifaceted conversation has developed into a sustained and dynamic discourse with reference to Bhagavad Gita, an encyclopedia for everything and everyone.  Likewise, “Science” is something that reflects a prototype of the everyday life.  From its inception, bhagavad gita stood as a basis for many scientific inventions and discoveries.  After the first atomic bomb was detonated, Robert Oppenheimer famously recalled the Bhagavad Gita, “If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky that would be like the splendor of the mighty one." and "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”  In contrast, Albert Einstein bitterly failed to understand gita in his early days and later repented saying everything else seems so “superfluous.”  However, many scientists denied the connection between gita and science without realizing the essence in it.  In making science a passion for the people, its foundation is being forgotten.  When formulating a successful theory, or performing a successful experiment, a scientist creates a new canvas through which one can observe the splendor of science in a new light.  Scientists without true knowledge are lame but knowledge without science is blind.  Science smiles in the midst of overwhelming sorrow showing the path to success.  Scientists should exemplify science as it is in the hope of invention or discovery.  In the course of an event, a scientist can end up in discovering things but falls short of invention as everything preexists in nature.  Right through this aging world, scientists have made remarkable contributions to science but ultimately their science has remained immortal leaving them mortal.  The game between science and scientists continues as a polymeric chain with n being infinity.  The test of science is ultimately not in the beauty of its construction but in featuring its eminence through knowledge.
