The World as I see it - Alber Einstein

The World as I see it - Alber Einstein

Book The World As I See It
Author Albert Einstein
Facilitator Dr. Viqar Zaman

Description This book presents Einsteins thoughts on life, on the world about him, and on his scientific labors. It provides a key to the understanding of this great man’s personality and his charming, witty and shrewd observations of human behaviour. Einstein believed in humanity, in a peaceful world and the high mission of science. He wrote, in form of articles and letters, on a variety of subjects which include politics, religion, education, pacifism, and the concept of good and evil. In 1955 at the age of 76 Einstein died of ruptured aneurysm of abdominal aorta. On postmortem his brain showed some extraordinary features which was reported in the medical journal Lancet. In short there is a lot to learn from his ideas which I will try to present as briefly as possible. I also intend to spend a few minutes on the conditions present during Hitler’s time which profoundly affected Einstein’s thinking. (By the Facilitator)

    Yeah, talking of Hitler….I was recently reading an old issue of Atlantic magazine which talked about Einstien becoming a Zionsit. He actually visited New York City with the Zionists like Chaim Weissmann. Many educated and liberal jews of NYC and other American cities at that time were against the Zionist movement and thought of it as something more popular among the jews of lower economic classes of Europe.

    Usually, there is more than one reason for the end of an empire. For example, no matter how much jamatis claim or their minions in our school’s history lectures tell us, Mughal Empire didn’t collapse because the kings “rung ralia’n manaa rahae thay”!

    I think the deal was not to be distrubed before thursday…?

    @balma jee….sir the mughal empire collapsed because the british empire integrated….otherwise it is not possible to rule an unruly nation of millions by few hundred thousand soldiers….who have their own issues with the empire…as well as commanding officers…anyways tonight we have a more serious and bigger issue the fate of Pakistan Cricket and the name of Javed Miandad is hanging in the balance…team Pakistan is so determined to lose the ODI series in Australia…which will lead to a complete ban on all foreign tour by pakistani sportsmen and women due to lack of sponsorship

    Fasiq, read a couple of books written by Prof Mubarak Ali of Sindh univ on Mughal Empire. Good analysis.
    And, let’s not get carried away by sports:-)

    @ balma…

    apart from opium, mujra, incomeptence, sibbiling rivalary, no inheritence procedure, no capacity building, no R & D, no standing army, no literacy adn science n technology.

    when i was a kid, i seriolsuy thought it was due to mughal rulers non offering namaz 5 times a day.
