In my childhood, I loved science, I loved physics the most. In my 12th Standard, of all the six subjects, the maximum marks that I scored was in physics (91/100). Okay, I know, it is not a staggering achievement to flaunt around.
But after 12th, I immersed myself in Ayurveda (and have no qualms about it, at all). But since last 3 – 4 months, physics is attracting me again.
The first trigger was the trailer of a movie, that I can’t wait to watch – Theory of Everything – Biographic movie on Stephen Hawking. Man! This is going to sweep Oscars. Can’t count how many times I have watched this trailer and how many tears I have shed!
And then last week, while doing some research on how Facebook page – and social media marketing works, I stumbled upon another physicist. Dr Derek Muller, PhD from Australia, who runs a famous you tube channel 2veritasium
Watch this –
And then today, I stumbled upon this stunning video by google, about speech recognition.
Enough is enough, I am bowled over by physics again and going after this ever amazing science. In fact, this is only going to make my understanding of Ayurveda, better.
Ayurveda and physics are quite related. Ayurveda has its deep roots in physics. It explains almost everything from the physics view point. Its explanation of plant qualities is by means of – if the plant is heavy, or light, if it cold or hot etc. Thousands of years ago, Indian Ayurvedic sages living in the caves and the huts, were clearly knowing the difference in health effects of cold water and hot water.
Modern medical science would say, that a plant acts by its chemical constituents, its alkaloids, glycosides, tannins etc. But Ayurveda has given equal importance to both chemical and physical potential of the herb or any substance. Just a simple example, Though H2O is H2O, the cold H2O may cause indigestion, if drunk before food (Drink water only in between meals) but hot H2O will help you in improving digestion strength and respiratory disorders.
So, I immensely hope that the future days will be glorious in understanding the intricate relationship between these two beautiful sciences – Ayurveda and physics.
I promise to share everything that I will learn with you, so that I can learn more from you. (assuming that you would stay with me by subscribing to this website, though you hate my, once in a while sales pitch 😉 )
By the by, what could be my weak spot in science? There is 33 % chance that you might have guessed it right.
I hate chemistry!
