First Lecture of Celebrities and Celebrations (CAC) on Albert Einstein

FIRST CAC Lecture on Albert Einstein

March 14, 1879 Einstein was born and “everything was Light”. He changed the fundamental understanding of the world. He turned upside down some of the ideas that were prevalent for over 200 years. He showed a new direction and showed that the past understanding was an approximation to the new understanding. He also introduced so many new ideas that Physics was totally redefined after 1905. We are literally seeing the vibrations of his theory even now. We start celebrating his life on March 14, 2019, 140 years after the birth of a millennium giant.
