Today is his birthday. In school, if you have got beaten up or punished or humiliated, it could have been because of him. Yet, (since I am very generous) I wanna wish him today.
Happy Birthday to You,
Happy Birthday to You…
Happy Birthday dear Newton…!
Happy Birthday to You J
As a kid, this guy was one of my hard core enemies! How I hated him, Oh God…! For that matter, all of them were my enemies – Newton, Einstein, Pythagoras, Bohr, Mendel and all their far and near friends and relatives! However, now that I have no more mandatory exams to write and get through, I am making an attempt to at least not dislike them. But Mr Bohr, Sorry; you are an exception. I still hate you!
What if on the day apple fell on Newton’s head, it rained and his mother did not allow him to sit under the apple tree? Then, g would not have been equal to 9.8; also later, Mass would not have married Acceleration to produce their baby Force! None of us would have experienced this magic, F=ma! I mean, objects in uniform motion would not have been in the same state if / if not somebody applies a push on it! Oh, the world would have been totally a different planet!
I was wondering, if Newton and Einstean and Pythu and Co were like me, I mean super-laid back when it comes to theories & derivations and super-excited when it comes to lazing around, what would have happened? Simple - I would not be blogging my stupid thoughts here; because there is no blogger and no reader, there is no Intel, there is no Microsoft, there is no Google, there is no computer, there is no architecture, there is no technology which means there is nothing. There is only me and a handful of nothings around me!
Now I admit; everything happens for the best. Good that it did not rain that day and the apple fell right on his head, which left Newton Bhayya thinking!
Here am, once again wishing you with all my heart, “My darling Newton, A very Happy Birthday! You truly deserve more than just an apple!”
Also, 3 cheers to R.A. Japan a.k.a Rajendran Sir, my Physics teacher in school whose brain we chewed and chewed for years together!
