Faster than light!

For most of the physicists, it is hard to conceive the idea of anything being faster than light. The problem lies in the rejection of the need for a medium for light to travel. Einstein thought that any medium would eventually slow the light down. Einstein could not conceive and idea of medium which is not a physical matter.

He said that space has curves in General Theory of Relativity but he never tried to join his special theory of relativity with it. If space can have curves then it can also have density. And if you consider the space as the medium of light then any change in the density of space will change the speed of light too.

This is in response to:

Why light is (was) the fastest one?

Whatever we observe in the universe is through electromagnetic waves. That is the reason why,whatever moves faster than light can not (or real hard to) be observed. Till now there were many phenomenon in QED which were explained based on events happening backward in time. I believe that all those are nothing but particles moving faster than light. That is why we observe the outcome of the event before we could observe the start of the event itself. I always feel that we should keep it simple.

Last Day at IIM Calcutta

Inspite of happiness of completion of CPMSD-05, we can see the pain of fairwell in many of the participants. Before going to sleep I wanted to put these photographs as a memento of this time.

For the rest of the pictures, please visit this album.
