With even the Modi sarkar now getting accused of executing cute little U-turns on a number of pre-poll, high on rhetoric, low on substance poll promises, the term ‘U-turn’ is now a much bandied about phrase in the Indian political lexicon. Given its wide currency and applicability to all political personalities and ideologies, whether secular [...]

Responding to the Supreme Court’s urgent call for clarity, a team of scientists at the Indian Institute of Science, India’s premier scientific research institution, has developed a mathematical model based on quantum mechanics principles, which predicts the state of Mr. N. Srinivasan at any given moment. Dr. Viru Sahasrabuddhi, a theoretical physicist at IISc who led the [...]

Christopher Balan, an engineering graduate from Bengaluru, has amused recruiters at the Indian Space Research Organisation, by mentioning “Understood Interstellar” as a part of his curriculum vitae, under the “achievements and skills” section. “Hell yes, I have! Why shouldn’t I? Things that people usually list under the skills and achievements section – like winning some [...]

As the politics of Shiv Sena with respect to the BJP and in particular, the state of mind of Uddhav Thackeray, become progressively difficult to interpret, exasperated BJP leaders, in a last ditch measure, have resorted to the abstruse field of Quantum Mechanics to try and describe what Uddhav Thackeray is trying to do. The [...]

While Christopher Nolan’s latest offering to mankind, Interstellar has left many all over the world reeling in awe, space agencies NASA and ISRO have taken cue and have begun to seriously inspect the incoherent tweets of Aam Aadmi Party leader Ashutosh. The announcement was made in grand fashion, on Twitter, by India’s Mars Rover. “Hey [...]

Stephen Hawking, the former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, world-renowned theoretical physicist and author of A Brief History of Time, has taken on the defining challenge of his career. Mr. Hawking today announced that he has commenced work on developing a mathematical model that will answer the key question of our [...]

It is a matter of pride for the Indian scientific community. For the first time ever, a new physical constant named after an Indian, the Taran Adarsh constant, will now find pride of place in the pantheon of physical constants such as Planck’s constant, Coulomb’s constant, Fermi coupling constant, Faraday constant, Boltzmann constant and Avogadro’s [...]

Top physicists and scientists from all corners of the world were found awestruck and dumbfounded on Saturday evening as the news about an Indian journalist who managed to create sound waves that traveled in vacuum. Dr.Peter Heinsel, one of Stanford’s eminent physicists and a renowned experimental scientist, confirmed that the sound waves created by Indian [...]

After insinuating in fancy ‘Tehelkan English’ that fascist forces are out to get him, Tarun Tejpal and his legal team have now taken recourse to abstruse scientific theory in the form of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, which postulates that the precise momentum and position of an object can never be known simultaneously, and Quantum Mechanics, [...]

Mankind is a step closer to determining the precise age of Pakistan cricketer, Shahid Afridi, after archaeologists stumbled upon his birth certificate during an ongoing excavation at Mohenjo-daro. The document confirms what cricket pundits have suspected for a long time: that the mercurial Pathan is at least 4000 years old. Shahid himself bashfully acknowledged his ancient [...]
