Meeting A Million dollar physicist( Thank you ICTS)

Happy to meet a Theoretical physicist, Ashok sen…Thank you ICTS( international center for theoretical sciences ) for inviting him. An outreach program is necessary to throw a light on fundamental knowedge about cosmology , Big vast universe. was great evening to learn lot about string theory.

Ashok sen is an Indian theoretical physicist and distinguished professor at the Harish-Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad.He also is the Morning-star Visiting professor at MIT and a distinguished professor at the Korea Institute for Advanced Study. His main area of work is String Theory. He was among the first recipients of the Fundamental Physics Prize “for opening the path to the realization that all string theories are different limits of the same underlying theory”. Of the prizes for theoretical physics, the Fundamental Physics Prize is the one which pays the most prize money.
He got Several Prize and Awards
1.Dirac Medal in 2014
2.Doctor of Literature (honorary), 2013, awarded by Jadavpur University.
3.Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa), 2013, awarded by IIT Bombay
4.M.P. Birla Memorial Award in 2013
5.Padma Bhushan in 2013
6.Fundamental Physics Prize, 2012, for his work on string theory
7.Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa), 2011, awarded by Bengal Engineering and Science 8.University, Shibpur (Presently Indian Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology, Shibpur)
9.Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa), 2009, awarded by IIT Kharagpur
10.Infosys Prize in the Mathematical Sciences, 2009
11.Padma Shri in 2001[16]
12.Fellow of the Royal Society 1998
13.Fellow of the Indian National Science Academy in 1996
14.S.S. Bhatnagar award in 1994
15.Fellow of the Indian Academy of Sciences in 1991
16.ICTP Prize in 1989

Ashoke Sen is Professor at the Harish-Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad. He received his PhD from the SUNY at Stony Brook in 1982. He has made pioneering contributions to the development of string theory. He has been awarded the ICTP prize in 1989, S S Bhatnagar Award in 1994 and the Third World Academy prize in 1997. He has been elected as a fellow of the Indian Academy of Sciences in 1991 and of the Indian National Science Academy in 1995. In 1998 Sen was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of London.

As string theory evolved in the 1980s and 1990s, it branched into various, confusing postulations. Sen’s singular contribution has been to unify multiple string theories and reveal a common foundation. It was to honour this achievement that Sen—an alumnus of Kolkata’s Presidency College and IIT-Kanpur—last month received the world’s most lucrative scientific prize, the only awardee from the developing world (seven scientists were from the US, one from France). The Milner prize, instituted by Yuri Milner, a Russian physics student, college dropout, venture capitalist and billionaire, focuses on fundamental physics and at $3 million (Rs.16.65 crore), pays nearly 300% more than a Nobel and stunned its awardees. More than the money, the Milner prize is important in the search for new frontiers because, unlike the Nobel, it can be given to scientists whose ideas have not yet been proved.

ನನ್ನ ಪಯಣ ಜೀವನದ ಹಾದಿಯಲ್ಲಿ

ಹೊಸತರಹದ ಹಾದಿಏನಲ್ಲ

ಯಾರು ಕಂಡಿರದ ಹಾದಿ ನನ್ನದಲ್ಲ

ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯರಲ್ಲಿ ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯರು ಕಂಡ ಹಾದಿಯಲ್ಲಿ

ನನ್ನ ಪಯಣ ಜೀವನದ ಹಾದಿಯಲ್ಲಿ 

ಲೋಕಮಾನ್ಯರು ಅಂದೊಮ್ಮೆ ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯರು 

ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯರೇ ಮುಂದೊಮ್ಮೆ ಲೋಕಮಾನ್ಯರಾದವರಲ್ಲವೇ ?
ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯನನ್ನು ಹೀಯಾಳಿಸುವುದು ಸರಿಯೇ
ಇದು ನನ್ನ ಚಿಂತನೆ


Life in shadow , can’t be seen. But gives shadow to someone in need of that shadow.

ಕೂಸು ಕಂದನು ತುಸು ಹೊತ್ತು ನಂತರ
ನೋಡನೋಡುತ್ತಲೇ ಪ್ರಾಯದ ತರುಣ
ಅವನ ಹಾದಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಆಟ- ಪಾಠಗಳೇ ಎಲ್ಲ
ಅದರಂತೆ ಕಲಿತೆ , ಕಲಿಯ ಬೇಕಲ್ಲವೇ ?

ಭಗವಂತನು ರಾಮನಾಗಿಯೂ ಕೃಷ್ಣನಾಗಿಯೂ
ಜನಿಸಿದರಂತೆ ನಮ್ಮಿ ಈ ಭೂಮಿಯಲ್ಲಿ
ನಾವು ಕೇಳಿದ ಕಥೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಆತ ಕಂಡ ಭೂಮಿಯಲ್ಲಿ
ನಾವು ಸಹ
ಮೋಹ – ಆಸೆಗಳನ್ನು ತೊರೆದು ನಟ್ಟ – ನಡುರಾತ್ರಿ
ಹೊರಟು ಬುದ್ಧನ ಹಾದಿಯಂತೆನ್ನಲ್ಲ ನನ್ನ ಹಾದಿ
ತುಸು ಆತನಿಗಿಂತ ಹೆಚ್ಚೇ ಈ ಭ್ರಷ್ಟ ಸಂಸಾರವೆಂಬ
ಪ್ರಪಂಚದಲ್ಲಿ ಆದರೆ ಇದು ತಿಳಿದಿದ್ದ್ದು ನೀದಾನವಾಗಿ

ನನ್ನ ಇರಲಿ ಕ್ಷಣಕಾಗಿ ನಾನು ಇರಲಿ
ತುಸು ಹೊತ್ತು , ನಾವು ನಮ್ಮೆಲರ ಬರಲಿ
ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಸಮಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಎಂದು ಮಾಯವಾದವರು / ಅಮರರಾದ್ವರು
ಎಷ್ಟೋ ಜನ ಇದಕ್ಕೆ ಪರಿಯಾರ ಇದೆಎಂಬಲ್ಲಿ .
ಮುಗಿದಂತಾಗಿದೆ ನನಗೆ …..

ನನ್ನ ಪಯಣ ಜೀವನದ ಹಾದಿಯಲ್ಲಿ

“MY VISIT TO COORG” [ A Story by Aishwarya balakrishna ] Guest Post #1

Science is not just to be read as a subject, its more important to make reality, in making fresh and good environment to survive. For the benefit of future generations by using a scientific tools. Physical science as a study emerging as a leading science branch but our inventions need to be neutralized to make clean and carbon free, which is stress and disease free atmosphere. In that context Aishwarya says about her native, which is mostly free from pollution… But here in Bangaluru ,Its is becoming more and more vulnerable towards its natural distractions/pollution. Aishwarya says ” This made her to visit her native in every vacations she gets and enjoy the colorful and great natural habitat. She written this article so beautifully which says fresh nature of coorg. ( which is her native ) please do read , which i’m sharing with you all.

[ Young Writer Series – Guest Post #1 ]

When I landed on that nature’s lap, sun was yet thinking of its rise,dark around and that looks very personal to spend those moments with my parents, not even a single street light is glowing,due to power cut.I managed to put my phone use as torch .Soon rushed a jeep,hopefully that was my sweet brother,who came for a pick up.

The reason of this visit is to meet my lovely granny and as soon as I reached home that was accomplished, spent sweet moments by sharing her my talks.

With all my relatives,I had some more special ones to welcome me, My Blacky and my Minnu.

A day again was completely spent playing with them,enjoying lonely the nature. I can say that my native is perfect place for my lone walk in the world. Nowhere else can give me such a peace of mind.

Here, sitting in IT Hub Bangalore,I dream of that natures call in most of my stressed out days.

According to me, the two methods is the best for stress relief.

One is to maintain silence internal and externally. Meditating in a silence environment, which is impossible here. And the second one,speak out to someone and my brother is one with whom I share almost every instances of my life.

And ultimately my goal is to relieve stress by the above two methods.

I did it successfully. More than that met all my family, feels so happy that I have many to love me. Many take me as aspiration, and that is my inspiration to go ahead.

Are you curious ? – [On serene Nature]

Everything around us is nature, which is surrounded by very beautiful environment.Nature is everything that is around us like water, air, land, trees, mountain, River, Sun, moon, sky, sea, forest,Even the Heavenly bodies charisma of light, unknown visitors like comet,Shooting stars.

We can see it every moment but why we not fascinated by it. we will discuss this surely. but not now. Nature is important and integral part of everyone’s life. Beautiful nature is as same as God’s true love. Sunrise in the morning with the new freshness to feed the human, when the tweeting of backyard birds,Hummingbird Rhythmic songs,to tell more scientifically as this blog is meant be.  Dawn chorus of birds occurs when birds sing at the start of a new day. In temperate countries this is most noticeable in spring sound of natural habitat which began the new day.

Sounds of Wind, and apart some distance their a river flows in carrying the FISH,WATER BODIES,SAND,TINY STONES, with zoooo… zoo.. zar.. zar sound ( which might be of soothing to human mind). above will sure forms a sunrise into magnificent act. Many famous poets, writer, painter, and artists  most favorite theme is nature and its curiosity of creation of Music, a BEAUTIFUL painting. POETIC WORDS evolution. 

by this man will certainly say ” We have the most beautiful residence on this universe, which is full of colorful and interesting scene, Extreme green and thick canopy of deep jungle is extremely beautiful and attractive. 

God / creator ( UNIVERSAL REFERENCE ) made everything look so beauty so that our eyes can never be exhausted, and never bored which is called as CURIOSITY
